Murray Signs Two Standouts From California For 2022

Nov 11, 2021

SEATTLE – Washington men's golf coach Alan Murray announced that two student athletes from California – Patrick Hong and Joshua Koo – have signed their letters of intent and will join the Huskies in 2022.
"Both are excellent players and extremely hard-working kids that have a sincere passion for the game of golf," Murray said. "They are awesome people and will really connect well with our other guys, the staff around our program, our alums and donors, and represent Washington golf in a first-class manner on and off the course.
"We are really excited about these guys."
Hong won the 2019 Adidas AJGA Junior All Star in Portland and recently won the TTC Sydnee Michaels Classic at Fallbrook (Oct. 9-10). He was third at the AJGA Kyle Stanley at Canterwood and also placed third in his last Rolex event, the Transamerica Junior Open. Hong attends Los Angeles CES (Center for Enriched Studies). 

Koo attends Cerritos High School in Cerritos, Calif., and notably won the Toyota Tour Golf Cup at Palm Desert Resort in April 2021. He shot a career-best 10-under 62 in the final round to win the tournament by six strokes at 13-under. Koo also finished second at the Fox Sports Junior at Mission Viejo in June and competed in the U.S. Junior Amateur in North Carolina in July.

  They have had some success at junior golf and have established themselves as superb players in their state and their recruiting class," Murray said. "I believe they will continue to get better year after year and they will add to our group and help us compete for championships.
"I believe they can come in and compete for starting spots straight away and will push their teammates to be better with the skill, their work ethic, and the can-do spirit they both exude."
