MONROE - Jerry Hanson, Clarke College head men's golf coach, announced today that Brandon Wilson, a two-time first-team Badger South All-Conference performer at Monroe, will enroll at the college this fall and join the Crusaders' golf program.

Wilson signed his letter of intent Wednesday in Monroe.

"It feels pretty good signing," Wilson said. "I'm pretty excited for the season already. I've got a good feeling about it, so we'll see how it goes."

Wilson picked up three varsity letters as a member of the Cheesemakers' golf program, playing for coach Mike Muranyi as a freshman and sophomore, and for coach Jeriamy Jackson the past two seasons. He placed second in the standings this past spring on the Badger South All-Conference team.

"I'm looking forward to having Brandon as a member of our golf program at Clarke," Hanson said. "He has had a great career at Monroe and will make an excellent addition to our program. We're very excited to have him."

Wilson said that he liked the idea of playing in both the fall and the summer, as college allows.

"I like how they have the season in both the spring and the fall. By fall, I'm fresh off the summer and I think it will go a lot better."

Wilson carded a personal best nine-hole score as a junior with a two-under par 32 at the Monroe Country Club. His lowest 18-hole score was a three-under par 67. Wilson recorded his first hole-in-one this past spring at the Monroe Country Club.

Wilson competed in nearly 20 Junior PGA events over the past three years. He fired a 72 to claim medalist honors at the Lake Wisconsin Country Club in 2007.

Wilson was a two-year varsity letter winner in soccer. He served as team captain as a senior and was a Monroe Times Athlete of the Week selection. Wilson was also a three-year participant in Monroe's basketball program.

Wilson, the son of Herb and Cindy Wilson, Monroe, was active in numerous activities while at Monroe. He served as a volunteer soccer coach at the YMCA and as a volunteer for the Apostolate to the Handicapped program. Wilson was a golf instructor for the Monroe Parks and Recreation Department and worked as a pro shop assistant at the Monroe Country Club.
