Dixie State University men's golf coach Brad Sutterfield announced the addition of two Utah high school golfers who will play for the Trailblazers in the 2017-18 season and beyond. DSU will bring on Davis High School standout Landon Anderson and Spencer Wallace from Layton HS.
Anderson (Kaysville, Utah) was a four-year golf letter winner who helped lead the Darts to four top-four Utah 5A state finishes, including a runner-up team showing in 2014 and a third-place finish last fall. He posted a t-11th place state 5A individual result in 2015 and a t-14th showing in 2016. In addition, Anderson collected a pair of t-1st place Utah Junior Golf Association (UJGA) finishes last summer at the Fairways Magazine Preview and at the UJGA Challenge Cup.
"We are excited that Landon has chosen Dixie State to play for our program,” said Sutterfield. “Landon has a well-rounded game with power and good hands around the greens. We look for him to continue to elevate his game with the opportunity to step in as a freshman and contribute to the team’s success. He is a hard worker and loves the game, which will bode well for him at the collegiate level.”
Wallace (Layton, Utah) earned four varsity golf letters at LHS and posted two top-25 Utah 5A individual finishes while playing for the Lancers, highlighted by a t-19th showing in 2015. He also won the 2016 UJGA Utah Junior Open title and posted a runner-up finish at the 2016 Utah State Junior Amateur Championships.
“Spencer joining our program this fall is extremely exciting. He has all the physical tools to be one of the best to ever come through our program,” Sutterfield said. “His golf swing is technically sound and he hits the ball very well. Add that to an exceptional short game and you can see why we are looking forward to him being part of our program.
“Spencer has a good amount of tournament experience in Utah and the country and has won multiple times at the junior level. He is ranked very high in the whole country among his graduating class and that will translate very well to the collegiate level.”
