Mike Clary has been named the Division III Golf Pride WGCA National Coach of the Year.  A 1977 Rhodes alumnus, Coach Clary has built the women’s golf team into a national power, recently guiding the team to its second consecutive national title and its third in four years. Rhodes is only the second program in Division III history to win back-to-back titles. 

“This honor is a reflection of all the wonderful people associated with our program,” says Clary.  “I humbly and proudly accept this award on behalf of the Rhodes Women's Golf Family.”

The Women’s Golf Coaches Association, founded in 1983, represents more than 600 coaches throughout the U.S., and is dedicated to educating, promoting, and recognizing both its members and the student-athletes they represent.
