Men's Golf Signs Top Recruit

BOISE, Idaho Boise State University men’s golf Head Coach Kevin Burton announced the signing of Tyler McDougall to a National Letter of Intent, Wednesday.

McDougall, a native of Wenatchee, Wash., has already recorded five tournament victories this season. The Wenatchee High School senior has earned first team all-conference honors in each of his four varsity seasons, and has posted a scoring average of 69.0 this season en route to earning Columbia Basin League Player of the Year honors.

“Tyler McDougall is one of the top players to come out of Washington state in the past few years,” Burton said. “A fellow former pro got us in touch with each other, and he had a number of programs to choose from, but he wanted to play for myself and Boise State.”

On top of his invitational wins, including a victory at the prestigious Inland Empire Invitational, McDougall has also finished runner-up via a playoff in two others. Headed into next week’s State championship tournament, McDougall is 19-under in 11 tournaments this season.

Playing at the State tournament as a junior in 2006, McDougall finished sixth. He also finished sixth at the Washington State Junior Championships and made it to the Round of 16 at the Pacific Northwest Junior Match Play Championships.
