JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Nov. 29, 2004) - East Tennessee State University men's golf coach Fred Warren announced on Monday the signing of Holywood, Northern Ireland, native Rory McIlroy to a National Letter of Intent to play golf for the Buccaneers beginning in 2005-06.

 

The youthful McIlroy brings an extensive and successful resume to Johnson City, including wins in the 2004 Irish Boys Championship and the 2004 Irish Youths Championships, becoming the first player since 1991 to win both championships in the same year. He also enjoyed a victory in the 2004 Ulster Boys Championship and a runner-up finish in the prestigious 2004 Duke of York Invitational.

 

In addition, he won the Tom Montgomery Award as the top ranked junior in Ireland in 2004 and was a member of the 2004 Junior Ryder Cup Team which competed against the United Stated in Detroit this past September.
