Parker Hormuth is expected to add depth to the Waldorf University men’s golf team as the program continues to bolster its incoming recruiting class.
Hormuth, a Roswell High School senior, signed a letter of intent with the Warriors on March 29.
“Parker will be an outstanding addition to our roster beginning in the fall,” Waldorf coach Mark Clouse said. “He brings a great work ethic and a desire to reach high levels of success at the collegiate level.”
A four-year varsity letter winner and member of Roswell’s lineup, Hormuth represented the Hornets in the 2015 Class AAAAAA state tournament and earned all-state honors during his senior season.
Hormuth has been pursuing the goal of one day playing collegiate golf and it’ll become a reality when he hits the links for the Warriors this fall.
“It is a blessing,” Hormuth said. “It has been a dream of mine to play at the collegiate level and I am very thankful that Waldorf has invited me to be part of their collegiate golf team.”
Hormuth is the son of James Hormuth and Nancy Hormuth. He will study business marketing at Waldorf and said the university’s size, academic offerings and golf program led him to becoming a Warrior.
“I chose Waldorf because of the school size, academics and opportunity to continue my passion by playing golf at the collegiate level,” Hormuth said. “The coaches were very instrumental in my selection as I like them and have a feeling that this recruiting class will be very good in the near future.”
The sixth member of Waldorf’s 2017-18 recruiting class, Hormuth joins a talented group of incoming freshmen, including Rector, Ark. native Cody Ails; Overland Park, Kan. recruit Jared Pheffer; McKinney, Texas native Devin Mark; fellow Lone-Star state recruit Caden McAnally from Copperas, Cove Texas and Oakdale, Minn. standout Jack Jurgensen.
With Hormuth set to compete for the Warriors this fall, he’ll be looked to further his game as he helps contribute to the success of the program in the coming seasons.
“We are very excited to have Parker join our program,” Clouse said. “We look forward to watching him develop over the next four years.”
