There’s not a whole lot of sporting events going on right now, but the news and additions continue across several of the sports at Ohio State. According to a release from head coach Joe Moseley, the men’s golf team got a huge addition to the squad last week.
Elis Svard, a graduate transfer from Cal State Monterey Bay will be joining the team for his last season of eligibility beginning next season. A native of Sweden, Svard earned PING All-American honors the last three seasons. He made the first team this past year and finished No. 9 overall in Golfstat individual rankings for 2019-20.
Meet the newest Buckeye, Elis Svard (@elissvard). He was a 3x All-American at Cal State Monterey Bay and broke the school's single-season scoring record this past year. Welcome Elis! #GoBucks

Ohio State should be in pretty good shape next season. Not only doe it get Svard, but its best golfer from the past season, Felix Kvarnstrom, will also be returning — taking advantage of the NCAA waiver for spring athletes that came about because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Onward and upward as they say.
