2012-2013 Season Outlook It was one year ago that Coach Chris Haack challenged the members of his youth-laden roster “to make their mark.” Haack entered 2011-12 with no seniors and just two juniors (one of whom, Bryden Macpherson, withdrew from school halfway through the year to get a jump on his professional career). Seven of the Bulldogs were freshmen and sophomores — and an eighth, Joey Garber, came in when Macpherson left. Yet through it all, Haack refused to use the word “rebuilding.” He instead harped on “reloading,” emphasizing that the talent was there and all that was missing was experience. Haack and his Bulldogs navigated the schedule fairly successfully, winning two tournaments and surviving a difficult NCAA Regional on their home course to make it back to the NCAA Championships. Thanks to all of that seasoning, Haack finds himself not only pleased with last year but encouraged by what 2012-13 could hold. “They all came a long way last year and they got better each week,” Haack said. “That makes this year even more exciting.

T.J. Mitchell is the Bulldogs’ only senior and he will serve as the team captain for the second straight year.

Brian Carter and Michael Cromie (foreground and background, respectively) are two of Georgia’s four juniors entering the season.

We don’t lose anyone, they’re all back, and they’ve got that year under their belts. I believe last year’s experience will kick in and they’ll be even more confident and it could be a great year.” “I really think we can be contenders,” said T.J. Mitchell, the Bulldogs’ lone senior. “I know everyone always says that, but we need to set our goals high. We’ve got depth in the lineup and we’ve got experience in the lineup. I think the sky’s the limit for us.” It also could help that the Bulldogs won’t have to go far from home to play most of their tournaments. Eight events will take place within the state walls, including the SEC Championship at Sea Island in April and the NCAA Championship in Alpharetta in late May and early June. All four fall tournaments will be inside the state. “I like our schedule a lot,” Haack said. “It means so much to our guys to look in the gallery and see someone with a ‘G’ on their shirt or their cap. This schedule will give our fans several opportunities to come out and see us play.” As Georgia’s only senior, Mitchell has reassumed his role as the Bulldogs’ captain. A year ago, Mitchell earned his first collegiate victory at the ODU/ Outerbanks Collegiate and joined the program’s all-time greats with a round of 8-under 64 and a total of 15-under 201 — both ranking second in school annals. In 2011-12, he was the only Bulldog to play in every event. The junior class is the Bulldogs’ largest, consisting of Brian Carter, Michael Cromie, Garber and Keith Mitchell. Carter, Garber and Keith Mitchell (no relation to T.J.)

made up three-fifths of the SEC and NCAA lineup a year ago, while Cromie has postseason experience from 201011. Carter had six top-20s last year, matching T.J. Mitchell for the team-best total. Cromie logged five tournaments last year, setting career bests in finish (23rd), round (69) and tournament (219). Garber, a Michigan transfer, appeared in every tournament in the spring, posting two top-10s and three top-20s in seven outings. Keith Mitchell battled his way into the lineup for the spring and earned AllAmerica honors as he paced the Bulldogs with a ninth-place finish at the NCAAs. He also led Georgia with a 71.83 season scoring average. Mookie DeMoss, Nicholas Reach and twins Sam and Sepp Straka make up the sophomore class. A hand injury derailed DeMoss last year, his first in Athens after transferring from Mercer, but he is now healthy and will contend for playing time. Reach was an All-Southeast Region and Freshman All-SEC selection as he recorded five top-10 finishes in 11 tournaments. Sam (four tournaments) and Sepp (seven tournaments) gained valuable experience a year ago, and they showed signs of explosiveness as each signed for a 66. Lee McCoy is the Bulldogs’ lone freshman this year. He won the state championship for Habersham Central in Clarkesville, Ga., after spending the early part of his career at Calvary Christian in Clearwater, Fla., where he set the state’s single-round record of 62. “I really like this team a lot,” Haack said. “These guys get along great, and they work hard every day. They want to get better and they want to succeed.”

CHRIS HAACK HEAD COACH/DIRECTOR OF GOLF 17TH SEASON Chris Haack was named the Georgia men’s golf coach on July 18,1996 – and he has taken to Bulldogs to a new level of success. Haack has guided the Bulldogs to two national championships (the only two in school history), seven Southeastern Conference crowns, 47 tournament victories, and several team and individual records. In April of 2012, Bubba Watson, an All-American for Haack in 2000, became the first Bulldog to win a professional major as he captured the Masters title. In July of 2012, Haack was named the Director of Golf. He will serve as the liaison between the Athletic Association and the UGA Golf Course, will oversee the Boyd Center and the adjacent practice facilities, and will be available as counsel to first-year women’s coach Josh Brewer. The Bulldogs have eight top-10 showings at the NCAAs in the last 14 years, including the 1999 and 2005 national titles and runner-up efforts in 2007 and 2011. Haack has developed 51 All-Americans during his tenure, including at least one each of the last 15 seasons. Haack perhaps did his best coaching job in 2011-12. He had a roster with no seniors and two juniors (one of whom, Bryden Macpherson, the Bulldogs’ most experienced player, withdrew from school in January). Haack, however, developed the chemistry he looks for annually during the spring and took a quintet of one junior, three sophomores and one freshman to the NCAAs, where the Bulldogs came in 17th. Sophomore Keith Mitchell earned Honorable Mention All-America honors. Haack led the Bulldogs to two titles in 2011-12, extending his school-record figure to 47. Haack has led the Bulldogs to at least one victory in 14 of his previous 16 seasons.

In 2010-11, Haack piloted the Bulldogs to the final match of the NCAAs. Harris English, Russell Henley and Hudson Swafford capped their stellar collegiate careers with All-America honors. In 2009-10, Haack coached Henley to National and SEC Player of the Year honors. He also guided the Bulldogs to three wins, including the SEC Championship. Haack’s Bulldogs also won the Charleston Shootout and the Morris Williams Intercollegiate. In the Williams Intercollegiate, Haack’s squad made up a 15-shot deficit after two rounds to win by one stroke – the largest rally in his tenure. In 2008-09, the Bulldogs won five tournaments, including the SEC title. His Bulldogs finished No. 1 in the final Golfstat poll and came in third at the NCAAs. The 2007-08 Bulldogs finished the year with the No. 1 ranking. Haack’s team won three times and came in eighth at the NCAAs. In 2006-07, Georgia won five out of seven tournaments. Despite placing second at

the NCAAs, Georgia held the final No. 1 ranking. In 2005-06, Haack led the Bulldogs to a school-record-tying six tournament wins and he was chosen as the SEC Coach of the Year. He also was selected by the Golf Coaches Association of America as the 2006 head coach for the United States Palmer Cup Team. The Bulldogs won three tournaments in 2004-05 – including the most memorable one in the spring as Georgia capped the season with a wire-to-wire win at the NCAAs. Haack was chosen as the National Coach of the Year. Haack’s 2003-04 Bulldogs won the SEC title. In 2002-03, his Bulldogs finished 16th at the NCAAs and third at the SECs, but cracked the win column at the Tennessee Tournament of Champions Though his 2001-02 Bulldogs did not win a tournament, Haack was recognized as one of the nation’s top coaches as he was chosen as coach for Team USA for the Palmer Cup. Haack’s 2000-01 Bulldogs won six events, including a school-record four straight, and finished the season ranked No. 1 in the nation. Haack’s 1999-2000 Bulldogs won three tournaments and he earned SEC Coach of the Year honors. Haack’s breakthrough season with the Bulldogs came in 1998-99. No Georgia team had ever ascended to the No. 1 spot in the polls, but Haack’s team did so early in the spring campaign. The Bulldogs later validated their ranking by winning the pro-

Haack’s Highlights • 1999, 2005 National Coach of the Year • 1998, 2000, 2006, 2009, 2010 Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year • 2 National Championships (1999, 2005) • 7 Southeastern Conference Championships (1998, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2006, 2009, 2010) • 51 All-Americans (8 1st Team, 16 2nd Team, 6 3rd Team, 21 Honorable Mention) • 53 All-Southeastern Conference Selections (31 1st Team, 22 2nd Team) • 1 Ben Hogan Award Winner • 1 Fred Haskins Award Winner • 4 Southeastern Conference Players of the Year • 7 Southeastern Conference Freshmen of the Year • 47 Team Championships • 34 Individual Medalists • 12 Scholar All-Americans • 1 NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship Recipient • 8 Faculty Athletic Representative Awards (highest team GPA at Georgia) • 6 Team and Individual School Records • 2001, 2006 U.S. Palmer Cup Coach

COaChinG sTaff gram’s first national championship. Haack was named National Coach of the Year. In 1997-98, Haack led Georgia to four wins, including its first SEC crown since 1988. Haack’s first Georgia squad in 199697 showed glimpses of what lay ahead as the youthful Bulldogs finished fourth or better in seven of 11 events and advanced to the NCAA Regional. Before being named Georgia’s coach, Haack was a driving force for the American Junior Golf Association. He joined the AJGA in 1981 as a tournament director before becoming director of operations in 1984 and director of development in 1985. He also served a seven-year stint as captain of the Canon Cup West Team, squads that included Tiger Woods and Chris Riley. In an initiative begun as foundation direc-

tor from 1988-90, he also organized and established fund-raising programs to build surplus moneys for the AJGA’s perpetuity, bringing in more than $750,000 for the foundation and other junior programs. Haack served as assistant executive director from 1990-96, helping manage a staff of 22 and an annual budget of $2.5 million. Additionally, he helped oversee the running of 38 events and 19 qualifiers nationwide. The recipient of the AJGA Sportsmanship Award, Haack graduated from Newnan High School in 1978. He attended West Georgia College, where he played on the golf team, and he received his degree from Mellen. Haack and his wife, Tori, have a son, Charlie, and a daughter, Katie.

JIM DOUGLAS ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH 12TH SEASON Jim Douglas, who helped the Georgia men’s golf team win the program’s two national championships, rejoined the Bulldogs’ staff in January of 2011 and was promoted to Associate Head Coach in July of 2012. Douglas was Georgia’s assistant coach from 1997 through 2005, during which time the Bulldogs celebrated some of their greatest success. With Douglas as

Coach Chris Haack’s lieutenant, Georgia won NCAA titles in 1999 and 2005, along with four Southeastern Conference championships (1998, 2000, 2001 and 2004). Georgia produced 26 All-Americans, 30 All-SEC picks, two SEC Players of the Year, two SEC Freshmen of the Year, 33 SEC Academic Honor Roll selections, six All-American Scholars and an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipient in that

span. Douglas served parts of the 2009-10 season as a volunteer coach, including during Georgia’s run to the SEC title. In 2011, with Douglas assisting Haack in the spring, the Bulldogs advanced to the final match of the NCAA Championship. Douglas helped seniors Harris English, Russell Henley and Hudson Swafford cap their careers with All-America honors, while English was picked as an All-American Scholar. Last season, Douglas and Haack guided a lineup of one junior, three sophomores and one freshman to a 17th-place finish at the NCAAs. “Jim will have more responsibilities with the day-to-day operations of our men’s team,” Haack said. “This is a role he’s ready for. He knows everything there is to know about our program and the way things need to be done. He’s been my right-hand man for many years, and we are lucky to have him in Athens. He brings so many qualities to the table. His contributions to our program – including areas like academics, recruiting, tournaments and practices – were critical to our success. Fortunately, he remained close to our program, so he was able to pick up right where he left off.” Douglas graduated from Georgia with a double major in political science and history. He and his wife, Katherine, have two sons, James and Charles.

National Championships the 1999 NCAA Championship in Chaska, Minn.: 1999 Following • The announcer called out the wrong school as the winner of the national title. • A torrential rainstorm hit the suburb of Minneapolis. • And a courtesy van provided to the actual champion was vandalized, presumably by a not-so-gracious loser. But the players and coaches from the Georgia men’s golf team couldn’t have cared less. All of that was a small price to pay for the program’s first national championship. “It’s an indescribable feeling,” said Coach Chris Haack, whose Georgia (not Washington, as the announcer said) squad secured the trophy. “All the hard work, all the sacrifice, all the time spent hitting balls, it’s worth it. I always wondered what it felt like when teams like UNLV and Oklahoma State won the national title. Now I know — and it’s a great feeling. I am so proud of our guys. A four-day tournament is a real grind, but they stayed focused and played good, steady golf all week. They really played like champions.” Especially on the last day. The Bulldogs entered the final round trailing Oklahoma State by five shots at Hazeltine National Golf Club. The players and coaches to a man said making up five shots was not a difficult proposition — and they were right. Georgia actually pulled ahead after just two holes and extended its lead throughout the rest of the front nine before holding on down the stretch to win by three. “We knew that we had to be patient on this course because so much can change so quickly,” Michael Morrison said. “You can’t take anything for granted.You have to play every shot as hard as the last one.You’ve got to play every hole to the best of your ability. I think we all did that.” Particularly Ryuji Imada. He paced the comeback effort with a 5-under par 67, one off the course record for Hazeltine. Imada finished at 1-under 287, second behind Northwestern’s Luke Donald (284). “It was one of the best 18 holes of golf I’ve ever seen,” said Haack, who sported a newly shaved bald head after the NCAAs as he made good on a pre-tournament promise. “Ryuji was spectacular. He certainly picked the

right time to turn it on. That could go down in history as one of the best final rounds at the NCAAs. The little man just put us on his back and took us to the title.” Imada had a shot at winning the medalist title down the stretch, but he said he focused more on the team crown. “The last thing I wanted to do was mess up and cost us the national championship,” Imada said. “I had a couple of chances to go at the flag, but I didn’t because it meant more for us as a team to win the national championship. I wanted to be aggressive, but I didn’t want to let the team down.” Imada finished the year as the nation’s third-ranked golfer, trailing only Donald and Georgia Tech’s Bryce Molder. “It’s the best feeling I’ve ever had. It’s unbelievable,” Nick Cassini said. “No matter what any of us do the rest of our lives in golf, we’ll be the 1999 national champions. It’s like a dream come true.”

With Coach Chris Haack rubbing the lucky coin in his 2005 pocket, Georgia cashed in at the NCAA Championship. The Bulldogs went wire-to-wire as the tournament leader at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, Md., finishing with an 11-shot advantage over instate rival Georgia Tech. Georgia fired an even-par 280 in the final round to wind up at 15-over 1,135. “I could not be prouder of this group of guys,” said Haack, who carried a coin given to him by his daughter, Katie, that had the inscription, “Dad, I Love You.” “I knew that we had the talent, the confidence and the demeanor to challenge for the championship this year,” Haack continued. “It’s been a good year, but we only had two wins coming in. I knew if they all put it together, it would be special. They just happened to do it this week when it meant the most.” “It’s awesome to go out like this,” said David Denham, the only senior in the Bulldogs’ lineup. “You live for moments like this. Every team strives to win the national championship, but not too many of them do it.” “This is what you play for,” Richard Scott said. “This is what this team was put together for. It’s great to go out and win other tournaments, but this is the one we all play for.” “This is the biggest one,” team captain Kevin Kisner said. “This is what you set your goals for. This is why we all came to Georgia. We’ve got too solid of a team not to win tournaments. When we all play well, it’s hard for us to lose.” The Bulldogs entered the final round with a 9-shot lead over the Yellow Jackets, and they knew it would hard to give that kind of lead away. Still, when Brendon Todd’s putt rolled in on No. 18, the players and coaches were

all at once relieved and ecstatic. “This is the ultimate feeling,” Chris Kirk said. “It’s awesome. It’s a great group of guys, and I have loved playing with them the last two years.” “It feels great,” Todd said. “It’s probably the biggest accomplishment any of us have in golf. It’s just incredible to win the national championship.” Todd wound up as the Bulldogs’ top individual at 3-over 283, followed by Kirk and Kisner at 5-over 285, Scott at 6-over 286 and Denham at 8-over 288. Todd finished seventh, and Kirk and Kisner were in the group that tied for 13th. Scott had a top-20 finish as he wound up 16th.

Southeastern Conference The Georgia men’s golf program has produced 28 Southeastern Conference championships. That is more than any other league school and the most of any athletic team at Georgia. As the accompanying chart shows, the Bulldogs have had success in several decades, including the 1950s and the 1960s when they won six in each. Under Coach Chris Haack, the Bulldogs have won seven titles, including six in the 2000s.

Georgia History matches, posting a mark of 268-57-8. Hamer, who was nicknamed “The Georgia Pine” because of his height, is still the only Bulldog to win the NCAA title (then known as the National Intercollegiates). He also won the Southeastern Amateur three times and the Georgia State Open and the Southern Amateur titles once apiece. Hollis was able to attract some of the game’s best players to Athens during his tenure, including David Boyd, Jimmy Gabrielsen,Vinny Giles and Danny Yates. Hollis stepped down following the 1970 season and he was succeeded by Dick Copas, a member of the UGA staff as an academic counselor and dorm director. Copas maintained the level of success that Hollis had begun as he guided the Bulldogs from 1971-96 to 17 NCAAs, including 10 top-10s, and seven SEC titles. Sixty-one of his protégés won All-SEC honors, while 31 were tabbed as All-Americans. Copas himself was named National Coach of the Year in 1978 and the SEC Coach of the Year seven times. Copas coached some of the most decorated players in Georgia history, including Peter Persons, Chip Beck, Griff Moody, Matt Peterson, Paul Claxton and Franklin Langham. Chris Haack stepped from the ranks of the American Junior Golf Association to assume the reins of the Georgia program after Copas. In just his third year on the job, Haack guided the 1999 Bulldogs to the program’s first national championship and he was named the National Coach of the Year. He then guided the 2005 Bulldogs to the national championship and again was chosen as the National Coach of the Year. To date, Haack also has guided the Bulldogs to seven more SEC titles – giving Georgia a league-high 28 crowns. Under Haack, Georgia has set school marks for lowest team total in a tournament and a round as well as lowest mark by an individual. Fifty-one of his players have been tabbed as All-Americans, while 53 of Haack’s players have been chosen All-SEC, including 1998 Player of the Year Jeremy Parrott, 2001 Player of the Year Nick Cassini, 2006 Player of the Year Kirk and 2010 Player of the Year Russell Henley.

Bubba Watson became the first Bulldog to win a major as he claimed the 2012 Masters in dramatic fashion, topping Louis Oosthuizen in a playoff. His shot from the pine needles at Augusta National that landed within 10 feet of the hole was vintage “Bubba Golf” and will be remembered by golf fans for years to come.
