Oregon State Men’s Golf Welcomes Hodgkinson, Johnson For 2022-23 Season

Nov 17, 2021

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State men's golf head coach Jon Reehoorn has announced that Collin Hodgkinson and Rylan Johnson have signed National Letters of Intent to join the program for the 2022-23 season.
Hodgkinson is a native of Beaverton, Ore., while Johnson will make the trip to Corvallis from Gilbert, Ariz.
"We are excited to welcome both Collin and Rylan to Corvallis," Reehoorn said. "We believe both young men will fit right into our program as high achievers in the classroom along with a true love for the game of golf and to simply compete non-stop to keep getting better. As the Oregon and Arizona Players of the Year, Collin and Rylan have proven to be comfortable in the spotlight and have the confidence in themselves to perform when it matters most.  Individually, both have similar games in that they have the ability to make birdies in bunches."
Hodgkinson is the 2021 Oregon Junior Golfer of the Year and won the OGA Peter Jacobsen Challenge shooting a 67 in each round. He also won the Oregon Junior Stroke Play Championship (69-68-72) and the Pacific Northwest (PNGA) Junior Boys' Championship.
Johnson is the 2021 Junior Golf Association Player of the Year. He is ranked 20th in the class of 2022 by the Junior Golf Scoreboard nationally. He is 29th overall.
Johnson won 5 JGAA tournaments in 2021, which included a 62 in the Scottsdale City Junior Championship and a 63 at the Mesa City Junior. He advanced to the match play portion of the '21 US Junior Amateur. He also finished sixth at the 2021 Junior Americas Cup (67-70-72).
"With no one graduating off this year's team, next year will be a serious battle for these two to get in the lineup right away," Reehoorn said. "But, it will also allow them to be truly tested against some veteran players, push them to keep getting better, and hopefully prove to being a huge positive in their development down the road.  I can't wait for Collin, Rylan and their families to be part of Beaver Nation."
