WHAT’S IN A NAME? The official school name is the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga which is the proper usage in first reference to the athletics program. The appropriate short form is simply Chattanooga with the abbreviated form of UTC. “Chatt” is acceptable as a leaderboard moniker. There is no hyphenated form of the school name (i.e. UTChattanooga, Tennessee-Chattanooga, Tenn.-Chatt., UT Chattanooga, etc.). The nickname is simply Mocs. For more information and current athletic marks, turn to page 14.

NO. 1 IN THE NATION The Chattanooga Mocs men’s golf team has twice been ranked No. 1 in the nation by Golfstat. Both occurences came in fall rankings in 2008 and 2009. In both cases, the Mocs started strong at the Carpet Capital Collegiate Classic with a win in 2008 and runner-up in 2009.

FORMER MOCS IN PROFESSIONAL GOLF Among the numerous golfing alums of the University, there are several in the world of professional golf. Jonathan Hodge (‘10) earned his Web.com Tour card in December 2012 at PGA Tour Q School. Stephan Jaeger (‘12) also reached the final stage of Q School and has Web.com Tour status for 2013. Jaeger and recent grads Bryce Ledford (‘07), Derek Rende (‘10) and Tripp Harris (‘10) are also working their way up through the myriad of tours (e.g. NGA/Hooters, eGolf, Canadian, etc.). Kip Henley (‘82) was the winner of the Golf Channel’s Big Break II and recently caddied for PGA Tour pro Brian Gay.
