DES MOINES, Iowa - Drake head men's golf coach Matt Lewis has announced the signing of prep standout Will
McDonald (Sapulpa, Okla./Jenks) to a national letter of intent to join the Bulldog program for the 2012-13 academic
"I am very excited to add Will to the Drake men's golf team," Lewis commented. "He will be a great fit for the program
and he has the potential to have an immediate impact on the team. We are very lucky to have such a quality young
man who will not only contribute on the golf course but also excel in the classroom."
McDonald registered a 72.7 scoring average in 11 events on the Oklahoma Junior Golf Tour this summer, en route to
collecting OJGT Junior All-Star accolades. He captured titles at both the George Phillips Memorial and Clary Fields
Junior Championship after recording rounds of 68 at each event. He also won the OJGT Battle for Broken Arrow
Tournament, firing back-to-back rounds of 71.
McDonald earned a trio of top-30 finishes at American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) events, including a third-place
showing (79-73) at the Preseason Junior at Brookhaven in Dallas, Texas. He also placed 27th and 29th, respectively,
at the Lockton Kansas City Junior (70-77-78) in Kansas City, Mo., and the Bass Pro Shops/Payne Stewart Junior
Championship (74-74-75) in Springfield, Mo.
As a junior, he helped lead Jenks High School to a second-place finish in the Oklahoma 6A Championship. He also
fired a career-best 64 to capture the 2010 George Phillips Memorial.
McDonald is the first student-athlete to sign a national letter of intent with Lewis and the Bulldogs for the 2012-13
