Meet Our 2019 Honorary Chairperson
University of Louisville Women’s Golf Head Coach
Whitney Young, one of the most decorated golfers from the state of Kentucky and in Southeastern Conference history, joined the University of Louisville’s coaching staff in 2017. A three-time National Golf Coaches Association All-American and four-time first team all-SEC honoree.
“The program has seen tremendous improvement over the past few years, and I know that we have all of the resources in place to be a top-10 team,” Young said. “The practice facility, the support, and the golf courses the student-athletes get to play make the University of Louisville an attractive destination for top players.”
“I’m really excited to return to the state of Kentucky to coach. I can truly tell this is a special place, and I’m excited to become part of the Cardinals family.”
The Glasgow, Ky., native comes to Louisville after spending four seasons at Georgia, where she helped the program to three appearances at the NCAA Regional Championships, including a regional title in 2016 that led to an automatic berth at the NCAA Championships. She assisted the Bulldogs to six Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-America distinctions and seven all-conference selections, including the 2016 SEC Freshman of the Year.
Young enjoyed an exceptional collegiate playing career at Georgia that included three top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championships. She aided the Bulldogs to 10 team tournament titles, most notably the 2007 SEC Championship. She is one of just three Georgia and seven SEC golfers to earn first team all-SEC honors four times. Statistically, Young compiled the sixth-best career stroke average in Georgia history. She clubbed a 74.21 over 129 rounds, posting scores even or below par in 32 rounds. She had six rounds in the 60s.
Upon her graduation from Georgia with a degree in speech communications, Young continued her playing career in the professional ranks. She registered nine top-10 finishes in 47 starts on the FUTURES Tour from 2008-10. In 2009, Young won the Duramed Tour Championship with a 9-under-par 204. That same season, she finished sixth on the FUTURES Tour money list to earn her LPGA Tour card for the 2010 campaign.
Additionally, Young competed in three U.S. Open events. She qualified for her first Open during her high school playing career in 2003 and later earned spots in 2008 and 2011.
Before her collegiate career, Young compiled a remarkable junior career. She was a four-time AJGA Polo Golf All-American, with first-team honors in 2002. She had eight victories, with an additional eight top-10 finishes in 23 AJGA and national events between 1999-03. She represented the United States on the PING Junior Solheim Cup Team in 2002.
