Following an illustrious amateur career in the United States, Nike Golf has today announced the addition of French athlete Joel Stalter to its European Tour roster.

This week marks the 21-year-old’s first tournament as a playing professional, as he tees it up at the Najeti Hotels et Golfs Open in France.


The rise of Joel Stalter

Stalter hails from Amneville, a small town in the northeast corner of France. He represented the French national junior team at school, before taking part in a student exchange programme that saw him come to California for the first time aged 14.

He completed his high school education in the country of his birth, before moving to the United States and working his way to a degree from Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. He established himself as one of the lead players in California, and won the Austrian International Amateurs tournament in the summer of 2011.


Two years later Stalter was part of the California team that won the 2013 Pac-12 championships, making it 10 victories from 12 events.

In addition to his five individual college victories, joel Stalter was also a member of the 2013 Palmer Cup team, a Byron Nelson Award finalist, and selected for the prestigious ‘All American 1st Team’ for 2014.

Joel Stalter :: why Nike?

One of the deciding factors in Joel Stalter’s move was his desire to be a part of a bigger brand that could offer him the chance to become a more rounded athlete, not just a golfer.
"I was particularly attracted to the brand because of their commitment to athletic golf." - Joel Stalter

“I’m delighted to have signed with Nike Golf, given their prominence in the modern game and everything the brand stands for,” said Stalter.

“I was particularly attracted to the brand because of their commitment to athletic golf. I want to be in the best physical and mental state walking onto the golf course and believe Nike’s experience, not only in golf, but their proud history in many other sports can help me to do this.”
