Paladins golf coach Todd Satterfield says Robert Mize chose Furman and will join the school for the 2011-12 season. Mize's father, Larry, won the 1987 Masters with a long chip-in to defeat Greg Norman and Seve Ballesteros in a playoff at Augusta National.
Larry Mize won four times on the PGA Tour. He currently competes on the Champions Tour.
Robert Mize is a senior at the Brookstone School in Columbus, Ga. He took medalist honors at the Class A championship tournament and helped his team win a state title earlier this month.
