MANHATTAN, Kan. ( – Kansas State head men’s golf coach Grant Robbins announced today that the program has signed community-college transfer Alex Lindstrom to a National Letter of Intent to play for the Wildcats beginning with the 2023-24 season.

Lindstrom, who hails from Halmstad, Sweden, is transferring to K-State after completing a successful one-year stint at Hutchinson Community College.

“We feel like we have made a great addition with Alex,” Robbins said. “We saw him play earlier this spring and were really impressed with his ballstriking and his calm and confident demeanor on the course. He came over to the U.S. last fall and quickly established himself as one of the best players in the country at the junior college level. He is passionate about the game and is an extremely hard worker. We are really looking forward to getting him here and working with him this fall.”

Lindstrom won the 2023 NJCAA Division I Phil Mickelson Outstanding Freshman Award and was a First Team PING All-American after collecting five top-10 finishes, including victories in consecutive KJCCC events that culminated with a conference championship. Lindstrom finished the year ranked No. 7 in the NJCAA and was the highest-ranked freshman as he also earned a spot on the NJCAA All-Freshman team.

Lindstrom is part of a four-man signing class for the Wildcats as he joins another transfer in JP Roller (Texas Tech) along with incoming freshmen Bryant Pohill (Edmond, Oklahoma) and Harry Bent (Gullane, Scotland).
