MTSU Golf Course Transfers including Boots Donnelly Grandson
The Middle Tennessee State University golf team landed two graduate transfers this week, and one is the grandson of legendary football coach and Hall of Fame member Boots Donnelly.
Murfreesboro native Nick Wolf, who has spent the past four years at UT-Martin, will join the Blue Raiders in the fall, with the transfer of Villanova Connor Daly.
Wolf, who played high school golf at Father Ryan, boasted seven top-15 finishes in eight tournaments in 2020-21 with the Skyhawks.
He is a three-time All-OVC honored and was the OVC Newcomer of the Year in the 2017-18 school year, his first season as a college golfer.
He averaged 70.8 per set in his last season at UT-Martin.
“I am very happy that Nick is joining the family,” MTSU coach Mark McEntire said in a statement. “He has had an outstanding career at UT-Martin where he holds the majority of records in the history of this program. I am looking for him to give us strong leadership and be a consistent player for us all year round.”
Wolf is the grandson of Donnelly, who coached the Blue Raider football program from 1979 to 1998, winning five Ohio Valley Conference championships, and is a member of both the Blue Raider Hall of Fame (1993) and the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame (2013). He was also the school’s sports director from 2000 to 2005.
Daly, a New York native, has been selected twice in the All-Big East for Villanova, averaging 73.4 per lap.
