Cowboys add international flair with Neergaard-Petersen

STILLWATER, Okla. – Oklahoma State’s men’s golf team has signed Rasmus Neergaard-Petersen to a National Letter of Intent it was announced today by Cowboy head coach Alan Bratton.

“Rasmus continues a long history of top European players joining the Cowboy family. He’s a very good ball striker and has a lot of international experience that will help his transition to college golf,” Bratton said. “He and his dad  got to enjoy their first Bedlam game over the weekend. This weekend helped Rasmus understand what Oklahoma State is all about. We can’t wait for his arrival in the fall.”

A native of Nivaa, Denmark, Neergaard-Petersen has built an impressive resumé, competing in events across Europe.

He finished third at the Danish Boys, was 19th at the German Boys, runner-up at the European Boys’ Team Championship in Austria before posting a 10th-place showing at the Carris Trophy in England.
