Columbia, Mo. -
The consistent growth of the Missouri Golf program has once again paid dividends on the recruiting trail as Head Coach Mark Leroux signed Tripp H'Doubler of Atlanta, Ga., and Euan Walker from Troon, Scotland, to national letters of intent.
"I'm really excited about adding both Tripp and Euan to our program," Leroux said. "Tripp has ties to Missouri and enjoyed a great career on the high school and junior circuits. He is from a strong recruiting area and extends our recruiting reach into the Southeast.
"Euan brings great international experience and was recently named to the Scottish U18 squad, so that tells you a great deal about his ability to compete at a high level," Leroux said. "Each of these young men will have an opportunity to come in and help us remain one of the top programs in the country."
H'Doubler has earned six Top 20 finishes on the American Junior Golf Association tour over the last two seasons and finished fifth at the Bubba Conlee National Junior in Bartlett, Tenn., shooting rounds of 73-71-68.
He also finished second at the 94th annual Atlanta Amateur Match Play Championship in October.
Walker is one of Scotland's top young players and finished third at the Scottish Boys U16 Championship in 2011. He also qualified for the prestigious Telegraph Junior Golf Championship this year by shooting a 7-under-par score in the opening round of the Ayrshire Boys' Championship, an event he would go on to win.
Last year Walker recorded four top-six finishes and came in third in the Nick Faldo Junior Series Scottish qualifier.
Missouri Golf finished the fall season with four victories and is currently ranked No. 18 nationally by Golf World Magazine and No. 19 by both Golfweek and Golfstat.
