CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State Men’s Golf Head Coach Jon Reehoorn announced that three student-athletes have signed national letters of intent to join the program beginning in the 2023-24 season.

These three people are Cooper Humphreys, of Kelowna, British Columbia, Stanley Lin of Taipei, Taiwan and Zach Miller of Buckley, Wash.

“I’m thrilled to finally make it official and welcome Cooper, Stanley and Zach to Beaver Nation,” Reehoorn said. “Each of these young men brings a love for golf, a passion for wanting to be at Oregon State, and a desire to work hard every day to continue to elevate the success of our golf program. Equally important to each of them and their families is their commitment to success in the classroom.We have been fortunate to attract some excellent student-athletes over the past few years and these three young men will fit perfectly into who we are.

Humphreys recently won the 2022 Canada Summer Games and the 2022 Toyota World Junior Team Championship. He also won the 2021 Canadian Youth Championship. Humphreys finished tied for fifth at the 2022 Toyota World Junior Individual Championship and the Canadian Junior 2022. He also competed in hockey and basketball and chose Oregon State “because of the athletic facilities and the beauty of the campus.”

“Coop is a wonderful young man, I know we will all benefit from his presence,” Reehoorn said. “Every time we meet someone who knows Coop, they immediately say ‘you’re going to love having him on your team. As a member of the Canadian National Junior Team, Coop was exposed to competitions around the world and excelled against some of the best juniors in the world, including helping Canada win its first Toyota World Junior Championship. Cooper, it wasn’t just his golf game that impacted their team’s success. He brings a passion and enthusiasm for life and competition, I know we’ll all love to be there.

Lin makes the trip from Taipei and won the 2022 Future Challenge, the 2022 Yeangder Amateur Classic Leg 1 and the 2021 Yeangder Classic Leg 5. He is ranked 27e in the class of 2023 by the Junior Golf Scoreboard. Lin also won the 2022 Spring National Tournament. Lin also competed in basketball and table tennis and chose Oregon State “because I really like Corvallis; the buildings are beautiful. and the athletics program is awesome. I like the coaches at OSU, especially their coaching style.”

“Stanley has proven he knows how to win events and press the final holes to win tournaments,” Reehoorn said. “The ceiling of how high Stanley can go is very high because he’s a great ball striker with length off the tee. Watching Stanley last summer in San Diego at the World Junior Championships and Bandon at the United States Junior, that what really stood out to me was how he handled himself. He has a quiet confidence that keeps him going through every lap even if he gets off to a bad start. Plus it was really cool to see how he interacted with his teammates. game, and like Coop, I know he will bring a lot of enthusiasm and energy to our group.”

Miller joins OSU from White River High School in Buckley, where he is a 2A state champion and was a medalist in every game he played. He was his league’s most valuable golfer in 2019-20 and 2020-21. He also won the 2020 WJGA Western Open. He is also literate in football, playing linebacker and tight end. Miller chose Oregon State because of “the coaches and people at OSU. You can tell they really love and support their athletes.”

“Zach is someone I’ve been watching since the summer before his freshman year in high school,” Reehoorn said. “I remember where I was when I saw him hit a shot for the first time and I thought, four years from now, he’s someone we’ll want to be in our program. He behaves with a bit of a lead and some presence on the course because he just hates losing Since I saw him play four/five years ago he’s grown a ton, gained a ton of speed and I believe the game is similar to transfer to college golf similar to what we saw in Mateo Fuenmayor.”
