Jean-Philippe Paiement
Des Ruisseaux, Quebec

Paiement, a native of Des Ruisseaux, Quebec, Canada, is currently seventh on the Royal Canadian Golf Association Junior Boys Order of Merit. One of eight players selected to the Canadian National Junior Team Program, Paiement represented Canada in the 2007 North American World Junior Golf Team Championships Qualifier, finishing in a tie for third place individually and helping Canada advance to the World Junior Golf Team Championships, which will be held in Japan this summer.

"We are very excited to announce Jean-Philippe Paiement as the newest member of the Kent State men's golf team," said director of golf and head coach Herb Page. "J.P.'s golf speaks for itself. His success in Quebec, Canada, the United States and internationally is tremendous. J.P.'s work ethic and attitude are second to none and will undoubtedly serve him well in college golf."

Paiement is a two-time qualifier for the United States Junior Amateur Championships. In 2006, Paiement fired rounds of 72 and 74 to tie for 27th place and qualify for match play with a total score of 146 at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club in Rancho Sante Fe, Calif. In match play, Paiement won two matches to advance to the round of 16 before falling in his third match to 2005 U.S. Junior champion Kevin Tway. 2005 saw Paiement advance to the round of 32 by winning his first match after qualifying with scores of 69 and 71 to total a 140 and tie for 17th at the Longmeadow Country Club in Longmeadow, Mass.

In addition to his success at the United States Junior Amateur Championships, Paiement captured the 2005 and 2006 Quebec Junior Provincial Championship. Paiement improved on a fourth-place finish on the 2005 Quebec Junior Order of Merit by finishing second in 2006. Paiement also represented Canada in the 2006 Canada-Ireland Junior Challenge, finishing 3-0 to help guide Canada to victory.
