Cameron Riley is the newest No Laying Up Young Hitter!
No Laying Up is happy to announce Cameron Riley, a former Florida A&M Rattler and Strapped Tallahassee star, is the newest Young Hitter! Cameron hails from the Bahamas, and moved to Orlando in high school before settling into Tallahassee as a mechanical engineering major at FAMU.
As a collegiate golfer, Riley helped FAMU to some of its best results – capturing the first MEAC championship in school history and surging into the NCAA Regionals in 2021. Riley won the BCGCA HBCU Invitational with rounds of 69-69 to finish -4.
He finished fourth in the APGA Collegiate Ranking, one of four Rattlers in the top five, earning entry into Advocates Pro Golf Association (APGA) events this summer, and travel costs to those events and to the Korn Ferry Qualifying Tournament this fall.
Riley showed well at the 6th Major, the APGA Deere Run, in July, finishing T8 with a +1 73.
Next up is the BillyHo Invitational at Sawgrass July 29-31, where he’ll compete in a limited field (sweepstakes) event against 17 other minority golfers.
No Laying Up could not be more excited to support Cam in all of his endeavors. If you want to #getinvolved and check out more of the story, follow these links:
