CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's golf team signed top Scottish junior Liam Johnston (Dumfries, Scotland) on Tuesday. Johnston is Chattanooga's lone addition for 2011-12.

"We identified Liam early as a difference maker for our program," said head coach Mark Guhne.  "He has a very strong resume and ranked the No. 2 in Scotland's Boys Order of Merit in 2010.  His extensive junior experience will serve him well as he continues his career in Chattanooga."

Johnston finished as runner-up at the Scottish Boys Championship at Dunbar earlier in April.  He finished second on the 2010 Scottish Golf Union Boys' Order of Merit. 

In 2010, he made it to the round of 16 at the Scottish Boys Championship, qualified for match play at the British Boys Championship and won three times.  He was a quarterfinalist in the Scottish Men's Amateur was runner-up in the Paul Lawrie Scottish Schoolboys Championship.

He has represented Scotland in several international competitions for many years including the 2010 European Boys Championship and Boys Home Internationals.  He was captain of the Scottish School Boys match against England and for the South of Scotland Boys win over the North of England team.

Johnston won the South of Scotland Boys stroke play and match play in 2009 along with the stroke play in 2008.  He is from the same town (Dumfries) as Mocs women's golf head coach Colette Murray.

Chattanooga awaits word of its NCAA Regional assignment on May 9.  Sites include Golden Ocala Golf Club (Ocala, Fla.), Pete Dye River Course (Blacksburg, Va.), Wolf Run Golf Course (Zionsville, Ind.), Colorado National Golf Club (Erie, Colo.), The Farms Golf Club (Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.) and Omni Tucson National Resort (Tucson, Ariz.) and regionals are slated for May 19-21.
