RUTHERFORD, N.J. – High-school senior Dylan Molloy (Spotswood, N.J./Spotswood) has signed a National Letter of Intent (NLI) to continue his golf career at Felician University, first-year Felician head men's coach Joe Ambrose announced today.
Molloy represents the first player commitment received by Felician during Ambrose's tenure. The Golden Falcons are members of NCAA Division II and compete in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC).
Molloy, six feet and 128 pounds, is entering his fourth year on the varsity at Spotswood High School.

Molloy is a regular performer on the New Jersey PGA Junior Tour. Last July, he posted back-to-back second-place finishes on that circuit. He intends to major in criminal justice at Felician.
