Mississippi State Golf Inks German Standout Severin Soller

The Bulldogs sign German Junior golfer to join Mississippi State squad.

Few sports have the global reach of golf, and Mississippi State golf coach Clay Homan went global by adding German junior golfer Severin Soller to the Bulldog golf team in a signing announced Monday.

Soller, who turns 20 in December, hails from Munich, and he brings a wealth of experience in international competition with him to Starkville.

In recent action, Soller collected a fourth-place finish in the Hungarian Championships and a 22nd place finish in the Dutch Junior Open.

"The experiences he's had on the international scene will play a major factor in his success here," said Homan, who begins his 13th season at the helm this year. "He's battled against the best in Europe, and he'll bring a competitive fire with him to Mississippi State. I'm looking forward to coaching him and seeing him develop as a player here in the United States."

Soller will be eligible to compete this fall for Mississippi State.
