Tubert joins women’s golf

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Emily Tubert signed a National Letter of Intent joining the University of Arkansas women’s golf team head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor announced today.

Tubert joins the Razorbacks from Burbank, Calif., where she is a three-year team captain at John Burroughs High. While competing for her high school, Tubert earned four MVP honors, is a two-time Pacific League Champion, earned All-Area Player of the Year in 2008, was an All-Area First-Team in 2007, All-Area Second Team in 2006, reached the CIF Finals in 2006 and 2008 and the State prelims in 2007.

"I was fortunate to watch Emily play last Thanksgiving down in Florida," Estes-Taylor said. "When I saw her hit one ball, I knew I had found someone special. Shewas one of the top prospects in the 2010 class and I could tell right away she was a perfect fit for our team. She is impressive to watch and has all of the tools to be one of the best collegiate players during her tenure. She has tremendous length, a good work ethic, and is a very smart young lady. She is a complete student-athlete that will provide great leadership and impact our program both in the classroom and on the golf course."

In addition to high school golf, Tubert played on the Junior Amateur Golf Scholars tour and was selected captain this year. Tubert is a four-year tour member earning Rookie of the Year and Western All-Star team honors in 2008. She followed up with the Founders Award and Western All-Star Team honors in 2009.

Turbert’s career included 11 top 10 finishes in AJGA tournaments over the last three seasons. She is a two-time Junior All-American (AJGA HP Scholastic in 2009 and AJGA Rolex in 2008). Turbert added the CIF SS 2009 crown to her resume winning the event the day after she signed.

Tubert’s other interests include AJGA Youth Leadership Club, Girls Scouts of America and Habitat for Humanity. She is a participant in the California Scholarship Federation tutoring middle school math students and she has worked on the Burbank City Rose Float.

Tubert is one of two daughters of Marcelo and Lori Tubert. Father, Marcelo, was born in Argentina, and Tubert has a 16-year-old sister. She plans to study kinesiology, sports and/or nutrition at Arkansas.
