University of Notre Dame

W

hen Father Edward F. Sorin started his school in the northern Indiana wilderness, he had only $300, three log buildings badly in need of repair and a far-sighted vision of establishing a liberal arts school to meet the growing educational needs of the frontier. He dreamed of building a great university, and in 1842, he founded the University of Notre Dame du Lac. Over the years, the University of Notre Dame du Lac would evolve into a preeminent place for Catholic thought. While becoming one of the top undergraduate institutions in the country, Notre Dame has also been at the cutting edge of research, including such innovations as the transmission of wireless messages and the development of synthetic rubber. Today researchers are achieving breakthroughs in astrophysics, radiation chemistry, environmental sciences, tropical disease transmission, cancer, robotics, and nanoelectronics. The University has also stressed residential life, with four-of-five students living on campus in the school’s 29 residence halls that serve as the focal point of social, spiritual and athletic activities. Notre Dame is one of a handful of universities with a truly international student body, coming from over 100 nations and all 50 states. Students come to Notre Dame not only to learn how to think, but to learn how to live, keeping faith with the vision of Fr. Sorin. Notre Dame is one of the few universities to regularly rank in the top 25 in the U.S. News & World Report survey of America’s best colleges and the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Directors’ Cup standings of the best overall athletics

programs. The University ranks first among all Catholic universities worldwide, according to the 2011 Times Higher Education survey and the Mendoza College of Business at Notre Dame boasts the No. 1 undergraduate business program in the nation according to BusinessWeek magazine.

Jack Swarbrick

Vice President • Director of Athletics

J

ohn B. “Jack” Swarbrick Jr., a University of Notre Dame graduate who rose to national prominence as a lawyer, consultant and executive in the collegiate and Olympic sports industries, is in his fourth year as vice president and director of athletics at his alma mater. Among Swarbrick’s athletics initiatives are meeting the performance needs of Notre Dame student-athletes through establishment of a new sports performance division, reaching out to more former Irish student-athletes via the Notre Dame Monogram Club and other programs, utilizing emerging digital technologies to deliver better information on and access to Notre Dame athletic programs via expanded production and distribution of programming, and restructuring Notre Dame’s approach to sport administration through assignment of a unique administrator to each of the 26 Irish sports. Notre Dame ranked number one in the country (among Football Bowl Subdivision schools) in the three most recent Graduation Success Rate (GSR) surveys – in 2010 and 2009 with 99 scores (including in ‘09 a 97 score and ’10 a 96 in football that both also ranked number one). The 2009 Academic Progress Rate (APR) statistics included more perfect 1,000 scores by Irish teams (nine) than by any other FBS institution. The 2010 Notre Dame APR report featured eight perfect 1,000 scores. The past three years combined in Notre Dame athletics have featured 94 AllAmericans, 19 Academic All-America selections and five NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship winners; record involvement in community service hours by Irish student-athletes; NCAA titles in 2011 in men’s and women’s fencing (a combined championship) and in 2010 in women’s soccer (with Randy Waldrum named coach of the year); NCAA runner-up team finishes in 2011 women’s basketball, 2010 men’s lacrosse, 2009 fencing and 2008 women’s soccer; NCAA semifinal appearances in 2011 hockey, 2009 and 2010 women’s tennis and 2009 women’s soccer, plus a 2010 third-place fencing finish; a men’s basketball modern program record 27 victories and a number-two NCAA seed (its highest in 30 years) in 2010-11 (resulting in national coach of the year awards for Mike Brey); the hiring of new Irish head football coach Brian Kelly to start the 2010 season; construction of a new, freestanding ice hockey arena, scheduled to open for the 2011-12 season, plus the 2009-10 dedications of new facilities for soccer and lacrosse – as well

as opening of the new Purcell Pavilion within the south dome of the Joyce Center. Born in Yonkers, N.Y., and raised in Yonkers and Bloomington, Ind., Swarbrick is a 1976 magna cum laude graduate of Notre Dame with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Upon graduating from Stanford University Law School in 1980, he returned to Indiana to accept a position as an associate in the Indianapolis law firm Baker & Daniels. He made partner in 1987 and spent 28 years overall with the firm. As a member of the Indiana Sports Corporation, including the chairmanship from 1992 to 2001, Swarbrick led many of the city’s successful proposals to a wide array of athletics organizations – from the National Football League to the United States Olympic Committee to the Big Ten Conference. His leadership efforts resulted in the city earning the right to play host to the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium; becoming the home of the National Collegiate Athletic Association national headquarters in 1999; hosting the 1987 Pan American Games, 1991 World Gymnastics Championships, NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Fours and other college championship competitions and an array of national and world championships in Olympic sports. At Baker & Daniels, Swarbrick served as general counsel for numerous national governing bodies of Olympic sports, including USA Gymnastics and USRowing, and as a consultant to the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta. In his work as an advisor to the NCAA, Swarbrick coordinated the men’s College Basketball Partnership, an NCAA-led group that addresses the opportunities and challenges in the sport, and developed the business plan for the new NBA/ NCAA youth basketball enterprise, iHoops. In 2000 Swarbrick received one of the NCAA’s highest honors, The Flying Wedge Award, for his work in establishing Indianapolis as the new home of the NCAA. In 2001 the State of Indiana presented him with the Sagamore of the Wabash Award. Born March 19, 1954, Swarbrick was named Notre Dame’s 12th athletics director on July 16, 2008. He and his wife, Kimberly, are the parents of four children: Kate, a 2010 graduate of St. Louis University; Connor, a 2011 graduate of Wake Forest University; Cal, a sophomore at TCU; and Christopher, a University of Notre Dame freshman.

Season Preview

Fresh Faces Set To Crack Irish Lineup In 2012-13 Team to replace three senior starters that combined to play in 110 tournaments

After enjoying a successful two-year stretch in 2010-11 and 2011-12 that saw the team qualify for back-to-back NCAA Regionals, the University of Notre Dame men’s golf team looks to fill a threeman void in its starting rotation heading into the 2012-13 season. A trio of seniors – Max Scodro, Chris Walker, Tom Usher – each served as everyday starters to the Irish lineup for the better part of the last two seasons, with Scodro and Walker having played with the rotation for the majority of their four seasons under the direction of head coach Jim Kubinski. Additionally, walk-on Ryan Coughlin, who got his first taste of golf in the starting lineup in ’11-’12, graduates having sported a 74.63 stroke average in his three tournament efforts during his two years with the team. Scodro graduates having rewritten the record book for Notre Dame golf. After carding the lowest stroke average season (71.25) in program history in ’11-12, the Chicago, Ill., native climbed to the top of the career stroke average charts with his mark of 73.25 over his 42 tournaments played for the Irish. Additionally, the two-time PING AllMidwest Region selection and BIG EAST Player of the Year finished with 19 team-leading efforts over his four years, tied for the most all-time along with ’07 graduate Cole Isban. Over that four-year span, Scodro earned medalist honors on two occasions while becoming the first BIG EAST golfer in over 20 years to win back-to-back BIG EAST Championships. He concluded his career with an impressive 11 top-five results and 19 top-10 finishes. Walker, meanwhile, finished just behind Scodro with 38 tournaments to his name during his fouryear career, while earning five top-10 finishes (four of those being top-five results). All told, the Woodlands, Texas, native concluded his Irish career 17th in stroke average (75.06) over his 105 tournament rounds. He earned three career thirdplace finishes during his stint with the Irish, while also being named a part of the all-BIG EAST team during both his junior and senior seasons. After enjoying a torrid start to his junior campaign before missing the spring season due to injury, Usher returned to the lineup in ‘11-’12 to the tune of a 75.14 season stroke average. He finished with one top-five result on the year, capturing the title at the 36-hole Battle at the Warren. A ’10 member of the all-BIG EAST team, the Baildon, England, native also advanced to a playoff for individual medalist honors at the 2010 BIG EAST Championship and etched his name in Notre Dame’s record book for lowest, NCAA Regional round in program history in ’11-’12 after firing a second round 65 (-6) at the University of Michigan Golf Course in Ann Arbor, Mich. “We lost a great group of four seniors, who all made outstanding contributions to our program,”

remarked Kubinski. “I couldn’t be more proud of them, for not only all they accomplished but in how much growth they experienced over their years at ND. They were a special group and one who I expect will continue to accomplish great things and represent us in a great light. “Of course, with Max starting pretty much all the way for four years, and Chris and Tom playing all four and being mainstays in the lineup over their final three years, it just underlines how much experience has now graduated. They easily played over 200 rounds for us as a group. We cannot match that experience this season. However, experience in itself can be overrated at times. The best example of that is the ongoing streak of first time major winners in professional golf. We’ve had a few years now of players winning for the first time. To me, the most important thing our seniors left us is their example of what it takes to be successful at this level. In terms of their desire to compete, their preparation and their belief in themselves, this season’s team can look to and lean on those qualities as we embark on a new season.” Despite three relative stalwarts to the Irish rotation moving on, Kubinski sees a young and hungry roster ready to battle for the final three spots on the five-man tournament squad alongside probable returning starters Paul McNamara III and Niall Platt. Factor in a highly touted freshman duo and the Irish look to feature a youthful team with unlimited potential in 201213. “The challenge for us won’t be in replacing the numbers,” Kubinski expressed. “We’ll get good scores. If you take away the names Max, Chris and Tom and write out a 70 or 71 and a 73 or 74, it makes you realize scores can be replaced. We have players who can shoot those scores. What we’ll miss, at least initially, are the leadership and confidence our seniors provided so often. It’ll be important for a few of our young guys to step up and assume those leadership roles. The faster we do this, the better our season, overall, will be. I believe we’re going to find those leaders. I look forward to the process and our upcoming campaign a great deal.” SENIORS Despite being only a two-man senior class with the addition of Edward Hjerpe prior to the ’11-12 season, plenty of tournament-savvy can be gleaned from two-year returning starter Paul McNamara III. After serving as an individual participant during his first campaign at Notre Dame, competing in both home events at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic and the Battle at the Warren, McNamara has taken to the course as part of the five-man rotation in 22 of the team’s 24

tournaments over the past two years. Over that time, the Palos Verdes, Calif., talent has posted season stroke averages of 74.30 and 74.66 to improve to eighth all-time in career stroke average with a mark of 74.68. During his now two-year run as a starter, McNamara also has amassed three top-10 showings and two top-five results with his highwater mark coming at the ’12 Battle at the Warren with his tie for fourth. He also earned all-BIG EAST team distinction for the first time in his Irish career in ’12 after securing fifth place with a 213 (-3), aided by a first round 68 (-4). Additionally, McNamara also brings a familiarity to the team of NCAA postseason play after playing as part of the lineup in both ’11 and ’12. Prior to Usher setting the NCAA low round with a 65, McNamara held that coveted spot in Notre Dame history following his third round 67 (-5) at the ’11 NCAA Southeast Regional at Golden Ocala Golf Course in Ocala, Fla. While Hjerpe does not bring an experienced college tournament acumen into ’12, the walk-on from Barrington, R.I., can provide valuable leadership and guidance to the youthful squad. After earning a spot on the team through qualifying tournaments, Hjerpe went on to play in both the Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic and the Battle at the Warren and finished the year with a 77.60 average. “Our seniors, Paul and Eddie have vastly different games but will contribute a great deal to our team,” Kubinski said. “Both are extremely hard working guys, spending countless hours honing their games. Paul, of course, has shown a great propensity for firing low rounds and on some great courses. He posted 66 at Minnesota this year, a 67 at NCAA’s in 2011 and multiple 68’s, including one at Kiawah’s Ocean Course. I’m excited to see him move up in our lineup order and compete against other strong players. I think he’ll relish that role.”

JUNIORS After building on an impressive freshman campaign during his sophomore season, Niall Platt looks to continue his growth as he steps into a leadership role within the team. The Santa Barbara, Calif., product has played in all 24 of Notre Dame’s tournaments through his first two seasons on campus, posting the second lowest career stroke average to this point with a 73.61 mark. A two-time selection to the all-BIG EAST team and ’11 BIG EAST Freshman of the Year, Platt has posted eight top-10 finishes, including four in the top five. He earned his highest finish to-date at the ’12 Battle at the Warren, tying for second with a 36-hole score of 143 (+1). “Niall has done everything we could have hoped for from a young player, and then some, over his first two years,” Kubinski expressed. “He has played every tournament for us as a starter since arriving. He is also on a great pace in terms of his career scoring average. I think he was a little inconsistent with his putter this past season but is a better ball striker now and much stronger, physically and otherwise. I look for him to have a lot of fun this year as he steps into a new role. He has the game to play with the nation’s best, as long as he keeps working and believes in himself.” Andrew Lane got his first taste as a starter

Now entering his junior campaign, Andrew Lane represents a stable of talent on the Irish roster looking to capture a spot on the team’s five-man starting lineup.

during his second year with the team, competing with the rotation at both The Invitational at the Ocean Course and the Linger Longer Invite. He also competed as an individual entrant at three more tournaments on the year, earning top-30 results at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic (27th), Schenkel Invite (T-27th) and Battle at the Warren (T-20th). He also improved on his freshman year stroke average of 76.67 by posting a 76.14 over his 14 rounds of play in ’11-12. While not yet cracking the starting lineup during his second year with the Irish, Andrew Carreon did take part in two tournaments last season. Over those five rounds of play, he carded the secondlowest stroke average of the year among the Irish with a 73.60 mark and posted a pair of top-25 results including a tie for 11th at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic. “The two Andrew’s will fight for starting spots this season and have given us brief glimpses of what they can do,” Kubinski explained. “Andrew Lane played the last 48 holes at the prestigious Schenkel in Georgia at -6 last March. Andrew Carreon had a great chance to win our home event, heading to the final round last September. Each is capable of a breaking out with a very solid season.” SOPHOMORES Tyler Wingo represents the lone Irish sophomore to have competed in tournament action among the three-man sophomore class. The Fairfax, Va., native earned a spot on the team at The Match Play, posting a 3-1 week in helping Notre Dame claim the tournament title for the first time in the events three year existence. For the year, he posted a 76.40 stroke average and recorded a top-25 finish at the Battle at the Warren (T-24th). Both Patrick Grahek and Peyton Vitter did not record time with the starting lineup but took advantage of Notre Dame’s home tournaments, competing in both the Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic and the Battle at the Warren. Grahek, a product of Alpharetta, Ga., concluded the year with a 78.20 average, while Vitter, a native of New Orleans, La., ended with a 79.00 mark. “I expect our sophomores to make a big push this season,” stated Kubinski. “They came into a situation last year where earning a starting spot was a tall order, given the three seniors we had. I

believe they’ll be more relaxed overall and confident in their ability to earn their spot this season. Tyler played very well, winning three matches, in his lineup opportunity in February. I was very proud of him. Both Patrick and Peyton are working hard over the summer to be ready for the new season. All three have enough talent and intelligence to be very, very successful.” FRESHMEN The Irish welcome in a talented two-man class for 2012-13 in Cory Sciupider and Zachary Toste in hopes of establishing a deep stable of talent heading into tournament play. Sciupider comes to the Irish out of Etowah, N.C., where he earned MVP honors during his sophomore and junior seasons at Christ School in Arden, N.C. Over his four years, he helped his team put together an undefeated season and claim the state title during his sophomore year, while individually being recognized as an all-conference selection three times, all-region twice and allstate (TYGA) all four years. He ranks as the 80th best player in the class of 2012 according to Golfstat, while also checking in at 83rd according to NJGS and 6th in the state of North Carolina as ranked by TYGA. Toste, meanwhile, checks in as the 36th best prospect in the class of 2012 according to Golfweek, while ranking 67th according to the JGS. A two-year captain of his team at Archbishop Edward McCarthy in Pembroke Pines, Fla., Toste helped his team claim the section championship during both his sophomore and junior years and earned all-county honors all four years. Outside of the high school circuit, Toste earned nine top-20 results in AJGA events including six top-10’s and three top-five’s. “Our freshmen class is an accomplished one, especially at the national level, and one I’m excited to welcome,” explained Kubinski. “I expect they’ll contend for starting lineup positions immediately. Both players drive it well, putt well and make enough birdies to succeed at this level. I expect they’ll transition to college life fairly easily, which is an important part of having success as a freshman. Both Cory and Zach are coming in playing good golf too. Cory just qualified for the US Public Links last week, posting 138 over his 36 holes. Zach has put up some solid numbers of late as well.”

Rolfs Family All-Season Varsity Golf Facility The Robert and Marilyn Rolfs Family All-Season Varsity Golf Facility (opened Sept. 30, 2006)

The Robert and Marilyn Rolfs Family All-Season Varsity Golf Facility, which is located at the Warren Golf Course on the northeast corner of the University of Notre Dame campus, opened on Sept. 30, 2006 with a private dedication ceremony. The $2.1 million, 10,333-square foot facility is used by both the Irish men’s and women’s golf programs.

A 5,000-square foot indoor short game area, that includes a putting green, chip and pitch area along with a practice bunker allows the student-athletes the ability to practice their short game year-round on campus.

One of the nicest features of the facility are the six hitting stations that are located within the building that lead out to the Warren Golf Course driving range, allowing players to work on their swings in all weather conditions. Incorporated within the stations is state-of-the-art video equipment to give players and coaches instant feedback on players’ swing techniques.

Four offices are located on the east end of the building to accommodate the coaching staffs. A fully furnished lounge is available to members of both teams for studying or relaxing. Another asset for the teams is a club repair room, which is located in the southern wing of the facility.

Each student-athlete has his or her own locker area in their respective locker room.

Warren Golf Course The date of May 1, 2000, marked the beginning of a new era in the history of Notre Dame golf as the University unveiled the championship-caliber William K. and Natalie O. Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame. Since its opening date, the course has been hailed as one of the best courses in America by Golf Digest and has been featured in Links Magazine and Golf Digest as a must-play venue. Through the generous donation of Notre Dame alumnus and Tulsa, Okla., resident Bill Warren (’56), the University features an impressive 18-hole golf course, located a stone’s

throw away from the northeast corner of campus. Constructed in a heavily wooded area, the facility is bordered by Douglas Road to the south, Juniper Road to the west, Ironwood Drive to the east and the Indiana Toll Road to the north. Since its inception, the Warren has played host to many marquee events. Most recently, the Warren played host to the NCAA Central Regional Championship on May 5-7, 2011. The Warren also was the host site for the 2010 NCAA Men’s Central Regional. The course also will continue to play host to the men’s Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic Tournament and has three times played host to the men’s year end Battle at the Warren. The course was designed by the Austin, Texas-based architectural team of Coore and Crenshaw, headed by Bill Coore and PGA Tour veteran Ben Crenshaw. Coore began his design and construction career in 1972 with noted course architect Pete Dye and formed his own company in 1982 before joining forces with Crenshaw four years later. Founded in 1986, Coore and Crenshaw has established a reputation for creating courses based on traditional, strategic golf, including: the Plantation Course at the Kapalua Resort in Maui, Hawaii; Cuscowilla Golf Club in Greensboro, Ga.; Sand Hills Golf Club in Mullen, Neb.; Barton Creek Club in Austin; the New Town Golf Club in Indonesia; Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Ariz.; and the East Hampton Golf Club on Long Island. Most recently, they designed the highly acclaimed Bandon Dunes in Oregon. Coore and Crenshaw also has undertaken several renovation projects, including the Southern Hills Country Club (in Tulsa) and the Prairie Dunes Golf Club (located in Kansas). The firm oversaw nine-hole additions to the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa and the Onion Creek Country Club in Austin. The existing Notre Dame Memorial Golf Course, located on the southwest side of campus, served as an 18-hole facility for the Notre Dame community until 1993, when the back nine was lost due to the addition of four campus dormitories and several athletic fields. The 70-year-old University

course remains a convenient nine-hole facility available to the campus community. “After losing the back nine of the existing course, Mr. Warren came forward with an interest in developing a new 18-hole, championship course,” said Notre Dame special assistant to the president Rev. E. William Beauchamp, C.S.C. ”It then became apparent that this was a project worth pursuing.” Since Mr. Warren was familiar with the team of Coore and Crenshaw through its work in Tulsa, it was a very natural fit. “We are very grateful for Mr. Warren’s generosity,” said Beauchamp. “Such a championship-level course allows our golf teams to be more competitive on a national level. The course is intended to benefit the entire Notre Dame community while still retaining the existing course as a nine-hole facility for instructional purposes.” Course construction began on March 1, 1997, with the first actual phases of dirt movement beginning two months later. Many of the day-to-day tasks were coordinated by the University’s department of facility engineering, under the ultimate supervision of associate vice president for business operations Jim Lyphout. The project also was coordinated by former associate athletic director Bubba Cunningham, who had responsibilities for athletic facility and financial affairs at the time. Final construction was overseen by Doug Marsh, director of the Notre Dame facilities engineering office. Assisting in this monumental task was Butch Layman, a construction administrator in the facilities engineering office. South Bend-based Rieth Reilly Construction was contracted to handle the movement of approximately 100,000 yards of dirt. Another local company, Ziolkowski Construction, handled construction of the course’s buildings and other structures.

Warren Golf Course Earns Top-15 Ranking From Golf Digest and Golfweek The University of Notre Dame’s Warren Golf Course has been chosen as one of the top 15 college courses in the nation, according to a feature article in the September 2005 issue of Golf Digest as well as a September 2011 publication by Golfweek. The magazine and publication used a variety of criteria in rating the various layouts, including shot values, resistance to scoring, design variety, memorability, aesthetics, conditioning, ambience and bonus walking points. The Warren Golf Course was ranked 15th in the country on the 2005 Golf Digest list while checking in at 12th in the most recent piece by Golfweek. The ranking from Golf Digest is only one of honors for the Warren Golf Course in its brief history. Here’s a partial list of the accolades the Notre Dame layout has received since opening in 2000: • Annually named as one of the nation’s ‘Top-100 Places You Can Play’ by Golf Digest • Top-15 Collegiate Golf Course - Golf Digest 2005 & 2010, Golfweek 2010 & 2011 • Second-best public golf course in Indiana - Golfweek, 2007 • Third-best public golf course in Indiana - Golfweek, 2006 • Third-best public golf course in Indiana - Golf Digest, 2006 • Fifth-best public golf course in Indiana - Golfweek, 2011 • Sixth-best public golf course in Indiana - Golfweek, 2012 • 12th-best collegiate facility in the country - Golfweek, 2005 • Golf Magazine, March 2001: “Top 10 You Can Play” -- honorable mention selection (one of only 35 courses in the country chosen) • Golf and Travel Magazine, August 2001: 40 Best Daily Fee Courses: No. 33 in United States (only course in the state of Indiana ranked) • Best New Courses of 2000: No. 5 in Affordable Public Division - Golf Digest • Chicagoland Golf Magazine: Five-star rating (highest) • Certified International Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary

Warren Golf Course Warren Golf Course Recognized For Environmental Excellence The William K. and Natalie O. Warren Golf Course has achieved designation as a “Certified Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary” by the Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary System (ACSS), the educational division of Audobon International. The Warren Course was the sixth course in Indiana and the 335th in the world to achieve this honor. “The Warren Golf Course has shown strong commitment to its environmental program. They are to be commended for their efforts to provide sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property,” said Joellen Zeh, staff ecologist for the ACSS. “To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas,” said Zeh. “We are extremely proud to be certified Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary,” said Kim Hocker, the now former golf course superintendent at the Warren Golf Course. ”From the beginning, it was the goal of the University of Notre Dame to create an environmentally-sound golf course. In addition, the overwhelming positive response from golfers and the local community has made our efforts worthwhile.” Final details of the course were directed by Tom Beck, construction superintendent for Coore and Crenshaw, and his associate Jeff Bradley. Kim Hocker, the now former golf course superintendent of the Warren Golf Course and the existing University golf course, and his dedicated staff added their expertise to the successful finish of the project. Final construction – completed in the fall of 1999 – included grading and seeding of the driving range, construction of tee areas around the clubhouse, completion of the many strategically-placed bunkers, overseeding of the fairways and roughs, and the defining of the course during the “grow-in” period. A number of trees and ornamental grasses were planted to add finishing touches. Brian Godfrey was named the first PGA director of golf and general manager for the Notre Dame Golf Courses in October of 1998. In 2003, John Foster assumed the post of General Manager and Head Golf Professional at the Warren. His duties at the Warren Golf Course include overseeing the operation of both courses, in addition to pro shops, clubhouse and driving range management. He coordinates course use to balance and meet the requirements of the varsity golf teams, course members, faculty, staff, students and the public. Foster also maintains the golf facility budgets as well as oversees staff training. The design of the Warren Golf Course is reminiscent of the classic, walkable Irish and American courses built in the late 1800s and early 1900s, with short distances between the greens and tees. Winding its way through 250 wooded acres, the course incorporates traditional elements of the great golf courses of the early 1900s and – unlike many modern layouts – is built on subtleties rather than special effects. “Players have been impressed with the design,” said Godfrey after the course opened in 2000. “From the dramatic

14

bunkering to the strategic designs of the greens, it is challenging and enjoyable for golfers of all abilities.” Distinguishing features include: rectangular tee boxes that provide a classic start to each hole; undulating greens of varying shapes constructed in a push-up style that slopes from back to front; false fronts to greens that allow a golfer to run the ball or fly it to the flag; strategically-placed bunkers that visually enhance each hole while challenging players to proceed with caution. The course runs 7,020 yards from the back tees, 6,003 from the middle and 5,302 from the forward tees. It includes 88 bunkers scattered among the 18 holes, and water comes into play on six holes. The course has bent grass fairways and fescue grass rough, playing surfaces found at some of today’s top facilities. Though the course originally did not play with a par, it currently plays at par 71. “We maintain the course in a dry and firm manner that will be true to the vision of the architects,” said Godfrey. “Many older courses required the player to have both the ability to run the ball along the ground as well as being able to fly it to the flag. A firmer surface allows for both options. This type of maintenance plan also requires fewer chemical applications and less water, which will allow for an environmentally-friendly course.” The designers received full permits to realign the existing Juday Creek that runs through the course and environmental safeguards were a priority in design and construction. A new creek channel was opened, resulting in a complete created habitat. The creek winds through the finishing holes, which are noted for heavy woods and change of elevations – providing a beautiful, challenging completion to the inward nine. Constant monitoring of the creek ensures a healthy and natural environment.

Some 4,400 native hardwood trees and shrubs were planted to increase the stream’s canopy cover. Approximately 360 large boulders, along with gravel and logs, were added to the slopes and bed to enhance fish habitat while a permanent sediment trap was installed. A combination of pest management, drainage and filtration techniques minimizes the use and impact of fertilizers and pesticides while 2,200 feet of new shaded stream course were created to relocate the stream from the golf course proper. Environmental engineers J.F. New & Associates directed these aspects of the project, and Ronald A. Hellenthal, professor of biological sciences at Notre Dame and Gillen Director of its Environmental Research Center, reviewed the plans and continues to monitor the creek. Two lakes add to the challenge of the course, with one stationed between the third and fourth holes while another provides a hazard from the tee of the 17th hole. Water comes into play with the existing Juday Creek winding through holes 16 and 18 while additional creeks were added on holes 10 and 18. The 7,000-foot clubhouse – designed by MoakePark Group Inc. of Fort Wayne, Ind., in a French Country style – was completed in June of ’99. The building matches the period of the course architecture (early 1900s), with a classic “clinker” style brick exterior. The design is completed by copper cupolas, dormers and trim, a slate roof and an enclosed porch. Brick fireplaces are located on both sides of the building, which welcomes the University community to venture over for lunch, meetings or shopping. The clubhouse is open to the public and houses some of the finest in men’s and women’s golf apparel, with both the Warren Golf Course logo as well as traditional Notre Dame merchandise and souvenirs. The Warren Grille, which is operated by Notre Dame Food Services, serves traditional golf course fare as well as specialty items and sandwiches.

A view from the 372-yard 1st hole. A slight dogleg to the left, this hole gives you an idea of what is to come with the rough look of the bunkers on the left to the well protected, small green.

The fairway bunkers on the 216-yard 11th hole provide an architectural deception, in that – from the tee – the front bunkers appear to be located on the sides of the green when they, in fact, are 20 yards short of it (bunkers also are located on the sides of the green).

The 197-yard 14th is one of Ben Crenshaw’s favorite holes on the Warren Golf Course. Noted for its old-Scottish style, the hole includes an elevated green and two bunkers to the right of the green that cannot be seen from the tee (unlike those to the left of the green). The hole is even more scenic when framed by full foliage in the surrounding trees.

The view from behind the 414-yard eighth hole looks to a green that is rectangular in shape and slopes dramatically from the rear, with an open front that allows either a bump-and-run shot or one that is flown to the green.

The 15th green is located just a stone’s throw from the clubhouse, yet the building is obscured by a distinctive variety of trees that rim the putting green.

This is a look from the fairway of the 436-yard sixth hole. The green is guarded by two trees and has a narrow entrance that is protected by bunkers both left and right. The Starter’s Cottage is Above is a look from the picturesque tee at the 16th hole. Overlooking Juday Creek from the visible in the right side of the picture. elevated tee, the hole ascends up and to the left to a tiny, undulating green that is very well protected by classic Coore- and Crenshaw-designed bunkers.

The finishing hole’s tee shot (above) must carry the new stretch of Juday Creek and bend left to the green. The entire left side of the 18th fairway is bordered by the bed of the former Juday Creek, which has been filled to form a new stream.

The elevated tee from the longest hole on the course, the 480yard 17th hole, overlooks a pond to the left and the large bunkers in the bank of the hill, leading to a sharp dogleg-left approach to the green.

The 495-yard 10th hole is another long hole that a big hitter may try to reach in two. Watch out for the creek that runs diagonally across the entire width of the fairway in front of the green. The eastside back porch of the clubhouse (above) overlooks the finishing holes and welcomes golfers from the nearby 18th green.

The westside entrance to the clubhouse sits beyond the ninth green, which is noted for its back-to-front slope and is surrounded by deceptive and treacherous bunkering. The ninth hole, as seen from one of the Warren Golf Course's distinctive rectangular tee boxes, is beautifully framed by trees, and the clubhouse is located behind the green.

A picturesque view from the tee box greets golfers at the dogleg-left seventh hole (398 yards), with a solitary tree adding some danger down the left side of the fairway.

In seven years with the team, the staff of head coach Jim Kubinski (center) and assistant coach Steve Colnitis (far right) helped guide Notre Dame to three BIG EAST Championships and subsequent NCAA Regional berths in ’06, ’11 and ’12.


Head Coach Jim Kubinski Head Coach Eight Years Springfield College ‘93

One of the nation’s top golf teachers, Jim Kubinski completed his eighth season as head coach of the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish men’s golf team in 2011-12. Having assumed the post on Jan. 28, 2005, Kubinski is just the sixth head coach in the 80-year history of the Irish men’s golf program. He inherited and subsequently added to a storied tradition that includes the 1944 NCAA national championship, 19 top-10 NCAA Championship finishes and 35 NCAA postseason appearances. In his first eight seasons leading the Irish, Kubinski has won four BIG EAST Championships (2005, 2006, 2011 & 2012) and added two BIG EAST runner-up finishes (2007 & 2010). He also has helped Notre Dame to a total of 11 tournament championships and his players have collectively earned six PING All-Midwest Region honors and 21 All-BIG EAST accolades. In 2012, he helped guide Max Scodro to both the PING and Golfweek Division I All-America Honorable Mention teams, marking the first Irish golfer to receive that distinction since 1980. It didn’t take long for Kubinski to make his mark at Notre Dame. In his first tournament at the helm of the Irish, just one month after setting foot on campus, Kubinski guided Notre Dame to the championship of the 2005 NOKIA Sugar Bowl Tulane Invitational, winning the title on the first hole of a sudden death playoff against UNC-Wilmington. It was the first of two tournament crowns in the 2004-05 season for Notre Dame and made Kubinski the first Irish men’s golf coach since 1961 to win the opening event of his career. That season, Rev. Clarence Durbin, C.S.C., led the Irish to a 23.5-6.5 dual-match win over Western Michigan. That was the start of what has been a solid eight-year run for the Notre Dame skipper, who piloted the Irish to consecutive BIG EAST Conference titles in 2005 and 2006, and back-to-back NCAA regional appearances both years, before accomplishing the same feat again in 2011 and 2012. What’s more, Notre Dame has regularly collected votes in

18

the Golf World Top 25 coaches’ poll and has risen as high as No. 12 in the Golfweek rankings (Oct. 2, 2005) under Kubinski. He has an overall record of 563-526-20 (.517). Under Kubinski’s guidance, Notre Dame has registered 38 top-five finishes, including 11 tournament titles, two of which came in sudden-death playoffs. The Irish also have carded the top-seven single-season stroke averages in school history under Kubinski, including a 291.50 in 2010-11, the best mark in program history. In addition, Notre Dame has fired 15 of the top 20 single-round scores in school history, including impressive finalround postseason efforts at the 2012 NCAA Central Regional (278, -6) and the 2006 BIG EAST Championship (school-record 272, -16). The latter score highlighted a 12-stroke comeback victory over Louisville, the secondbest rally in the storied history of the Irish men’s golf program, and led to Notre Dame’s selection as the Golfweek National Team of the Week (May 1, 2006) for the first time in program history. Individually, Kubinski has produced impressive results with several Irish players in a short span of time. Cole Isban became the first three-time PING All-Midwest Region selection (2005-07) in program history under Kubinski’s tutelage, and graduated in May 2007 as the school record holder for singleseason stroke average (72.71 in 2006-07) and career stroke average (73.76) Josh Sandman, a 2008 PING All-Midwest Region selection and two-time all-BIG EAST pick, took up where Isban left off. Working with Kubinski, Sandman posted a 73.90 career stroke average in 111 rounds for the second best mark in program history at the time of his graduating. He also broke new ground, becoming the first Notre Dame golfer ever chosen as an individual qualifier for NCAA regional play, earning a berth in the 2008 NCAA Central Regional. He came back from injuries to play an integral role with the Irish in 2009-10. Sandman won the 2009 Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic for his first

career win and graduated with four of the top-30 single season stroke averages in the Irish record books. Doug Fortner, a 2010 graduate, also experienced great success under Kubinski’s tutelage. He played 117 rounds with the Irish, carded a 74.59 career stroke average (ninthbest since 1954) and saw 102 of his rounds counted towards team scoring. As a senior, Fortner was one of four unanimous selections to the 2010 All-BIG EAST team as he became just the third player in program history to earn all-conference honors on three occasions - joining Mark Baldwin and Cole Isban in that select group. He also fired a sevenunder par 64 in the opening round of the 2010 FAU Spring Break Championship to tie Baldwin for the lowest to-par round in school history. Even though Sandman and Fortner, staples of the lineup over Notre Dame’s past few seasons, have graduated, Kubinski has proved adept at restocking the Irish roster with talent. 2012 graduates Max Scodro, Chris Walker and Tom Usher became the top players for the Irish in 2010-11 and 2011-12, playing as part of the rotation together for nearly all of the two seasons. Scodro highlighted the trio, earning medalist honors at the 2011 BIG EAST Championship (212, -1)

and 2012 BIG EAST Championship (210, -6) as well as earning BIG EAST Player of the Year both years, the first time any Irish golfer has received the honor. He etched his name in the annals of the Notre Dame program, posting the lowest single-season stroke average (71.25) during the 2011-12 campaign en route to moving into first all-time on the career stroke average charts with his mark of 73.25. Additionally, Scodro tied for the most team-leading efforts in Notre Dame history with 19 while becoming the first All-American under Kubinski’s guidance and first for the program in 32 years. For his stellar season, Scodro also became the first Notre Dame golfer selected to the all-BIG EAST team all four years. Along with Scodro, Walker, Niall Platt and Paul McNamara III earned all-BIG EAST honors for the year, marking the first time since ’03 that the Irish have placed four or more players on the team. The quartet played in every round for the Irish on the season. Kubinski was nominated for the 2007 GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teachers List, honoring the nation’s preeminent golf instructors. Previous winners of the prestigious designation include Hank Haney (former teacher for 10-time PGA Tour Player of the Year Tiger Woods), Butch Harmon (swing coach for PGA Tour great and two-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson) and David Leadbetter (legendary coach for such PGA Tour luminaries and major tournament champions as Ernie Els, Nick Faldo and Greg Norman). After leading his team back to the NCAAs in 2011, Kubinski was selected as the BIG EAST Coach of Year for the first time in his head coaching tenure with the Irish. He repeated this honor in 2012, as the Irish pulled away for a 16-shot victory at the BIG EAST Championship (852, -12) to claim a spot in the NCAA Central Regional. Kubinski was a three-year golf letterman and two-year team captain at Springfield (Mass.) College before graduating in 1993. A two-time all-Northeast 10 Conference selection in 1991 and 1992, he also received the Springfield College Maroon Club Award for academic and athletic achievement in 1992. His playing experience continued on the North Atlantic Tour where he tied for sixth place at the `95 Boston Open, and he also competed in the Carolinas Section PGA. Born May 4, 1970 in Springfield, Mass., Kubinski and his wife, Sarah, live in Granger, Ind. The couple has two children. Their daughter, Kelly, was born in September of 2007 and enjoys singing the Notre Dame Victory March. They celebrated the birth of their son, James, in May 2010.

Assistant Coach / Support Staff Steve Colnitis Assistant Coach Seven Years Notre Dame ‘05

Steve Colnitis, a member of two BIG EAST Conference championship teams and two NCAA Central Regional qualifying squads at Notre Dame from 2001-05, completed his seventh year as an assistant coach for the Fighting Irish in 2011-12. Colnitis (pronounced coal-NIGHT-iss) aids in many of the day-to-day operations of the men’s golf program, including recruiting, practice planning and travel scheduling. In his seven seasons on the Notre Dame staff, Colnitis helped guide the Irish to the 2006, 2011 & 2012 BIG EAST Conference titles and the corresponding NCAA regional berths, as well as BIG EAST runner-up finishes in 2007 and 2010. He also was instrumental in helping Notre Dame to the top seven singleseason stroke averages in school history (school-record 291.50 in 2010-11, 291.59 in 2011-12, 292.97 in 2005-06, 294.41 in 200910, 295.71 in 2006-07, 295.27 in 2007-08 and 297.97 in 2008-09). What’s more, Colnitis put his stamp on the Irish program as a recruiter. His latest success can be seen with the last five incoming freshman classes, which included Future Collegians World Tour (FCWT) first-team AllAmericans Max Scodro (who also garnered

all-BIG EAST honors each of his four years at Notre Dame as well as BIG EAST Player of the Year as a junior and senior and GCAA and Golfweek All-America honors) and Chris Walker, along with rising senior Paul McNamara III, who was an International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) first-team AllAmerican in 2007. Along with head coach Jim Kubinksi, Colnitis added a deep three-player class for the 2010-11 campaign that included Andrew Carreon, Andrew Lane and Niall Platt. Platt was named BIG EAST Freshman of the Year as well as earning all-BIG EAST honors in each of his first two seasons. Platt also concluded his freshman year with a six-under 210 at the NCAA Southeast Regional. Colinitis’ recruiting success continued in 2011-12 with the addition of Tyler Wingo, a two-time Virginia state champion, Patrick Grahek, an AJGA Scholastic All-American and 5A Georgia High School Golf Coaches Association (GHSGCA) all-state selection in 2011, as well as Peyton Vitter and culminated in his final class comprised of one-time North Carolina state champion Cory Sciupider, who hails from Etowah, N.C., and four-time all-county selection Zachary Toste out of Pembroke Pines, Fla. “It has been a sincere pleasure to have had the opportunity to both coach Steve and then have him work within our program as assistant coach for 7 years,” head coach Jim Kubinski remarked. “His contributions are too numerous to list. He was a friend and mentor to each and every one of our players as well as someone who treated the position and our program as a part of his life, rather than simply as a job. He was invested in everything we did and for that I’m very grateful. Steve represented Notre Dame with great class and integrity, a tremendous example for our stu-

dent-athletes. We’re blessed for our interaction these last several years and certainly wish him well in all endeavors. He’ll never be too far away though, as once a part of our ND golf family you are always a part of who we are.”Colnitis joined the Irish coaching staff in 2005 following a four-year career on the Notre Dame men’s golf team, earning a pair of monograms along the way. He competed in 13 tournaments during his career, posting a 77.86 stroke average, and served as a tricaptain for the Irish in 2004-05, helping Notre Dame earn its second-consecutive BIG EAST title and a return trip to the NCAA Central Regional (where the Irish wound up only two shots shy of advancing to the NCAA finals). Colnitis graduated from Notre Dame in May 2005, earning his bachelor’s degree in marketing from the Mendoza College of Business. He also garnered Dean’s List honors during the fall 2004 semester. Born September 15, 1982, in Baltimore, Md., Colnitis now resides in South Bend.

Season Notebook BIG EAST Champs Again! In the team’s last tournament before learning its NCAA fate, Notre Dame returned to the top of the BIG EAST Conference, winning the conference tournament for the eighth time in program history and second consecutive season. They are the first team to have won back-to-back conference crowns since they won three straight titles from 2004-06. Max Scodro also made history at the event, leading the charge for the Irish for the second straight year, finishing as the tournament’s individual medalist with a 54-hole score of 210 (-6). With the win he became the first back-to-back individual medalist since Pat Fogarty of St. John’s won three straight crowns from 1982-84. In addition to Scodro’s strong play, two other Irish golfers – Chris Walker and Paul McNamara III – also placed in the top five, with Niall Platt and Tom Usher placing within the top 35 of the 60-member field. Walker and McNamara both finished their tournaments under-par at four under (212) and three under (213), respectively. Notre Dame ended the tournament with a 54-hole total of 852 (-12) for a 16-shot victory over second-place Louisville (868, +4). Villanova rounded out the top three at 870 (+6). The 16-shot margin of victory represented the largest margin since Virginia Tech won by 17 shots back in 2002 at the Warren Golf Course. It also marked the first year in the 17 years of playing in the BIG EAST Championship that the Irish have posted under-par rounds in each of their three rounds.

Historic Senior Year For Max Scodro In addition to earning his second consecutive medalist honors at the BIG EAST Championship – the first time that feat has been accomplished by a Notre Dame golfer – Max Scodro also posted several other highwater marks in program history during his final campaign in the Blue and Gold. The Chicago, Ill., product led the Irish at nine of the 11 stroke-play events the team competed in this season, including capturing a top-10 finish at seven of those tournaments. Aided by four top-five finishes and 16 rounds of under-par golf on the year, Scodro also has posted the lowest single season stroke average (71.25) in program history while bolstering his program-leading career stroke average, which now stands at 73.25. Following the BIG EAST Championship and in addition to earning the conference playerof-the-year award for the second straight

year, Scodro also became the first Notre Dame golfer to earn four citations on the allBIG EAST Conference team.

Continuing To Shoot Low The 2011-12 Notre Dame season countfour stroke average continued to follow the trend of stellar numbers in recent years. Averaging 291.59 strokes per round, this year’s Irish team ranks second all-time in average behind only last year’s team that posted a 291.50. Now through his seventh full season as head coach of the Notre Dame program, Jim Kubinski’s teams have posted the seven lowest count-four stroke averages since the format was incepted back in 1980.

Playing In The Red In order to post the team count-four average that it was able to accomplish, Notre Dame relied on several rounds of sub-par golf. On seven occasions this season, the Irish cracked par including their personal-best round of 278 (-6) at the NCAA Central Regional in the second round. Individually, seven of the of the 12 members of the Notre Dame roster also chipped in with at least one under-par round, while six of those seven also secured at least one round in the 60’s. Max Scodro led the way in the group, carding 10 rounds below 70, while Niall Platt three times reached the 60’s.

Going To Disneyworld? Twice during the 2012 season the Irish visited Orlando, Fla., to take part in a tournament and twice they walked away champions. After beginning the fall season with a 4-0 weekend at The Match Play, the Irish returned two-and-a-half months later to lay claim to their second straight BIG EAST Championship and earn automatic qualification into the NCAA Championship.

Familiar Faces The Notre Dame lineup enjoyed tremendous consistency over the past two seasons. The five-man rotation of Max Scodro, Chris Walker, Paul McNamara, Niall Platt and Tom Usher played together for 19 of the 24 tournaments that the Irish competed in over the last two seasons. Additionally, Scodro and Walker both played in over 100 career tournament rounds for Notre Dame while playing as part of the starting lineup for parts of all four seasons.

Successful NCAA Regional A year after setting several records in NCAA Regional competition, Notre Dame returned to NCAA action for the second time in as many years and raised the bar in the record books in the 2012 edition. After posting their low 54-holes score of 865 at last year’s tournament, the Irish improved on that mark by six shots, finishing the 2012 NCAA Central Regional at 859 (+7) and posted their lowest single-round score with a second round 278 (-6). The 859 also earned the squad a share of sixth place; Notre Dame’s highest finish at a regional since the NCAA Championship switched to that format in 1989. Individually, the Irish also entered the record books. Tom Usher posted the lowest single-round score with his second round 65 (-6), improving on Paul McNamara III’s previous best mark set in 2011 with his final round 67 (-5). Max Scodro, meanwhile, earned the highest finish at an NCAA regional (T-7th) while also carding the lowest 54-hole tournament score (208, -5) in his final tournament as part of the Irish.

Byron V. Kanaley Award The most prestigious honor awarded to a Notre Dame student-athlete, the Byron V. Kanaley Award has been presented each year since 1927 to the senior monogram athletes who have been most exemplary as both students and leaders. The awards, presented by the Faculty Board on Athletics, are named in honor of a Weedsport, N.Y., native and 1904 Notre Dame graduate who was a member of the Irish baseball team as an undergraduate. Kanaley went on to a successful banking career in Chicago and served the University as a lay trustee from 1915 until his death in 1960. The Notre Dame men’s golf team has produced two winners of the award. Steve Ratay (Arlington Heights, Ill.), received the honor following the 2002 season, joining 1962 winner, Al Highducheck (Waterbury, Conn.). Ratay finished his Notre Dame career as one of the top golfers in the program’s storied history. A two-time Academic All-American (2001, 2002), Ratay graduated with the program’s lowest single-season average (73.03) in 2001-02 and finished his career with the second-best average (74.46 in 105 career rounds). Highducheck helped the Irish finish 17th at the 1962 NCAA Tournament. He appeared in 18 regular-season matches as a senior during that 1962 season while ranking second on the team with 76.2 strokes per round.
