Men’s Golf Signs Three Student-Athletes

Nov 16, 2020

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State men's golf head coach Jon Reehoorn announced Thursday that three student-athletes have signed National Letters of Intent to join the program beginning with the 2021-22 season.
The class includes Carson Enright from Longboat Key, Fla., Brandon Eyre from Salem, Ore., and Brody Marconi from Portland, Ore.
"We are excited to welcome these three young men and their families to Beaver Nation," Reehoorn said. "Carson, Brandon and Brody will be great additions to our team. They will fit in with the culture of our program as they love golf, competition and Oregon State."
Carson Enright
Enright won the AJGA Make-A-Wish Foundation Championship and finished in the top 10 at the prestigious Southern Junior Championship. He shot 62 to win the Notah Begay Regional Qualifier in Arizona and will compete in the event's national championship this coming week.
He has a 3.2 cumulative GPA and enjoys ping pong, basketball and football.
Enright chose Oregon State because: "I loved the area and it's the right fit."
Jon Reehoorn on Carson Enright:
"Carson's love and dedication for the game of golf showed up in each of my conversations with him and his swing coach, Rob Rashell. Carson is always asking questions about how to get better and is on a constant pursuit to keep improving. Carson's love for golf and his work ethic have shown over the last few months as his scores and results continue to improve with a couple of wins, a 62 and a top-10 finish at the Southern Junior on a very difficult course. Carson has proven his game travels across the country, and we are excited he has decided to be a Beaver."
Brandon Eyre
Eyre attends West Salem High School in Salem, Ore., and is a three-sport athlete in golf, football and basketball. He was the 2019 Oregon Junior Stroke Play champion and advanced to the semifinals at the 2020 Oregon Men's Amateur Championship.
Eyre is ranked No. 1 in the classroom for the West Salem High School class of 2021 with a 4.23 cumulative GPA. He's also a member of the honor roll, the National Honor Society and the Spanish National Honor Society.
His mother, Holly, graduated from Oregon State University and his brother, Andrew, is currently attending Oregon State. His other brother, Michiel, played golf at Santa Clara University.
Eyre chose Oregon State because: "I want to pursue my love for the game of golf while at the same time earn a great education."
Jon Reehoorn on Brandon Eyre
"Brandon has intangibles any coach of any sport is looking for in a potential recruit. Last winter I attended one of Brandon's varsity high school basketball games for West Salem. It was instantly clear he loves to compete and has the willingness to do the little things to help a team win. While playing basketball, football and golf Brandon is also on track to be his class valedictorian. On the golf course Brandon has already shown he can win and compete at a high level. It will be fun to watch him grow and develop as he is focused on solely golf for the first time in his athletic career."
Brody Marconi
Marconi attends Jesuit High School in Portland, Ore., and was a two-time All-State and All-Metro League selection before his junior season was canceled due to COVID-19. He led Jesuit to back-to-back 6A Oregon State High School Championships, finishing second as a freshman and sixth as a sophomore.
He was a U.S. Junior Amateur participant in 2019 and finished second at the Oregon Junior Amateur in 2018.
Marconi has been on the honor roll every semester of his high school career with a 3.73 cumulative GPA.
His mother, Amy, graduated from Oregon State University and his father, Dominic, played golf at Western Nebraska Community College before transferring to Portland State University for his final two years.
Marconi chose Oregon State because: "It's close to home, my mom went there, and the golf facilities and coaches are awesome."
Jon Reehoorn on Brody Marconi:
"Brody is a young man who has the unique ability to create an effortless speed in his swing. He is someone we identified early in the recruiting process that we believe has a huge ceiling for growth and potential. His speed and length will translate very well to college courses, and he has already held his own in amateur events against college players. We are looking forward to getting him on campus, surrounding him with a competitive group of individuals and developing his thought process and golf IQ on how he goes about attacking golf courses."
