BLACKSBURG, Va. - The Virginia Tech golf program has announced the signing of Marc MacDonald to a national letter of intent for the 2009-10 academic year.
MacDonald, from Harare, Zimbabwe, attends St. John’s College Preparatory High School in Harare. He is currently the No. 1 ranked player in his country and won the 2008 Zimbabwe Amateur Championship. MacDonald also represented his country in last year’s World Amateur Team Championship in Australia, alongside his brother and former Tech standout Nick MacDonald. In 2008, he finished second in both the Midlands Bata Amateur and Mashonaland Amateur, and was fourth in the Matabeleland Open.
“Marc has quickly developed into an outstanding player and will follow in the footsteps of the other great players we have had from Zimbabwe, all of whom are currently playing in the professional ranks,” head coach Jay Hardwick said. “He brings international experience to the team and we are excited to have him as a member of our program.”
MacDonald joins Jacob Everts (Ooltewah, Tenn.) and Mikey Moyers (Ruckersville, Va.), who signed to play golf for Virginia Tech in the fall.
