In golf, Greenberg played on varsity for six years, and was the number one player from eighth grade on. In 2011, he played in the Minnesota State High School Tournament and qualified for the 2011 Men’s State Amateur Golf Tournament. He was an All-state golfer in 2010 and an All-Conference golfer for each of the six years he played.

He will be attending college on a golf scholarship at Minnesota State University Mankato. He will be honored at the Mercury Club banquet in August at the Medina Golf and Country Club.
