Head Coach Mike Whitson and the Eastern Kentucky University men’s golf team have announced the addition of Cade Burdette.

Burdette, a Mount Vernon, Kentucky native will join the golf team in the fall of 2019.

“I am very pleased Cade has decided to be a part of our program,” Whitson said.  “He has had an outstanding junior and high school career and he will be an asset to Eastern Kentucky University and our golf program.  He is a very competitive young man and I believe he will compete for playing time right away next fall and will have four great years at EKU.”

Burdette was named to the 2016, 2017 and 2018 All-10th Region team and was named a four time CKBC Player of the Year.

He won four high school events at Rockcastle County High School. He helped lead the team to its first state tournament appearance in 10 years in 2018.

In 2014 he won the middle school state tournament.
