“Zak Kulka spent much of his life following his older sister, Ashley, around to junior golf tournaments, but that’s not why the Beaver Dam senior will be following her to UW-Green Bay next fall. ‘The most important thing while searching for a college was the academics,” Kulka wrote in an email interview with Wisconsin.Golf. “For that reason, at the start of my recruiting process, I wasn’t considering UW-Green Bay … because they didn’t have engineering as a major. That all changed this past February, when UWGB announced they would be starting an engineering program in the fall of 2019. I was very excited to hear that.'” See the story in Wisconsin Golf.
