As one of the most successful programs in the nation with 16 national champions and eight individual national titles, the UH men’s golf program has produced some incredible college golfers.

After a successful Division I debut season, one player has risen through the ranks and has quickly made a name for himself.

Senior Santiago De La Fuente has taken a unique route to stardom at UH, and it all started when he was just a toddler.

Born and raised in Ocotlan, Mexico, De La Fuente started to play after his father and brother introduced him to the sport at just three years old.
