ATHENS, Ga. --- Lindsay Hulwick has been named assistant women's golf coach at the University of Georgia, head coach Josh Brewer announced on Thursday. Hulwick has spent the past seven seasons at the University of Denver, the first four as assistant coach before being promoted to associate head coach in 2009.
"I'm excited to have Lindsay joining our staff," Brewer said. "With her seven years of coaching experience and master's in sports psychology, I'm certain she will help make us a well-rounded program."
During Hulwick's tenure, Denver has won 20 team and 14 individual titles, captured seven consecutive Sun Belt Conference titles, secured seven NCAA Regional bids and advanced to four NCAA Championships (three times as a team and once with an individual). Denver placed 20th in its first-ever NCAA Championships in 2007 and improved to sixth in 2008 and fifth in 2009.
"I am thrilled to become the assistant women's golf coach at the University of Georgia and would personally like to thank Josh Brewer for giving me this opportunity," Hulwick said. "I have learned so much as a player at Tulane and associate head women's golf coach at the University of Denver and am excited to take these experiences with me to Georgia and learn from Josh, (men's head coach) Chris Haack and (men's assistant coach) Jim Douglass. I look forward to continuing the success that the women's golf program has had in prior years. Go Dawgs!"
Denver golfers have excelled individually as well. Stephanie Sherlock garnered All-America honors three times, Rachael Watton and Kimberly Kim were named Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Year and Sherlock and Kim earned their LPGA Tour Cards.
Before beginning her coaching career, Hulwick was a standout collegiate golfer at Tulane from 2001-05.
Hulwick was named to the All-Conference USA Freshman team in 2002 and was selected All-Conference USA in her final three seasons (first team in 2003, second team in 2004 and third team in 2005). She secured medalist honors at the 2003 Green Wave Classic, one of 14 top-10 individual finishes while at Tulane.
Hulwick was co-captain for Green Wave teams that won back-to-back Conference USA titles in 2004 and 2005. Tulane appeared in the NCAA Regionals during each of Hulwick's four seasons in New Orleans, and she helped lead the Green Wave to its first-ever NCAA Championships as a senior in 2005. Tulane placed 15th at the 2005 NCAAs, which is still the program's best showing ever.
Hulwick qualified for five U.S. Amateur Championships, the 1998 and 2001 U.S. Juniors and the 2002, 2003 and 2004 Women's Ams. She was the low amateur at the 2004 Colorado Women's Open and won the 2005 Colorado Women's Stroke Play Championship.
Hulwick received her LPGA Teaching and Club Professional Class A certification in 2010 and was named 2011 LPGA Central Section Coach of the Year.
A native of Littleton, Colo., Hulwick earned a bachelor's degree in management with a concentration in finance in 2005 and secured a master's in sport and performance psychology from Denver in 2012. In 2005, she was selected as Tulane's Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year and named to the National Golf Coaches Association's All-American Scholar team.
