2010-11 Middle Tennessee Men’s Golf THREE STRAIGHT NCAA TOURNAMENT APPEARANCES

2009-10 Notebook Blue Raiders earn program’s highest seed The NCAA Men’s Golf Selection committee was impressed with the Blue Raiders’ 2009-10 season enough to give them a No. 7 seed at the Gold Mountain Regional. That ranked as the highest seed ever for the Middle Tennessee program. In 2000, MT was seeded 14th, then in 2008 had a No. 19 seed, and in 2009 came into the field with a No. 11 seed.

Gold Mountain Regional among the toughest The NCAA Men’s Golf Gold Mountain Regional featured some of the nation’s premier teams, including six of the top 32 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings. Pac-10 Champion Washington had a No. 4 national ranking, while Southern Cal was ranked 10th, and Illinois 11th. The Blue Raiders faced Illinois earlier in the season at the Crooked Stick Invitational where the Illini won and the Raiders came in second. Oregon State entered the tournament ranked 25th, Colorado State was 26th, and San Diego was ranked 32nd. Overall, four conference champions competed in the Gold Mountain Regional.

Impressive record Middle Tennessee finished the 2009-10 season with an overall record of 141 wins, 22 losses, and 1 tie. The Blue Raiders were also 58-25-1 against the Top 100.

Blue Raiders get program’s highest ranking After a fall season that saw the Middle Tennessee men’s golf team win two major tournaments in dramatic come-from-behind fashion, the Blue Raiders were rewarded in mid-November with their first Top 25 national ranking in the Division I era. The poll, by GolfStat.com, was released on Nov. 11 with the Blue Raiders coming in at No. 25.

Comeback Kids Middle Tennessee won three tournaments during the season and all three were in dramatic fashion. The Blue Raiders came from 11 strokes down in the final round to win the Mason Rudolph in the fall and then a few weeks later won the Aldila Scenic Invite after entering the final round nine strokes down. On April 13, Middle Tennessee made up a 12 stroke deficit to win the ASU Red Wolf Classic. “I have said all year that this was one of the most mentally tough teams in the country and they have proved me right all year long,” said Head Coach Whit Turnbow.

Bulle, Millard, Green make all-conference Middle Tennessee placed three players on the 2010 All-Sun Belt Conference First Team. Senior Kent Bulle made the team for the first time in his career as did sophomore Hunter Green. Junior Jason Millard earned all-conference recognition for the second consecutive season.

3 in a row Senior Kent Bulle and junior Jason Millard joined former Blue Raider Chas Narramore as the only players in school history to compete in three straight NCAA Regionals. Narramore, now an assistant coach, was the first to accomplish the feat in 2009.

Bulle named Golfer of the Month Middle Tennessee senior Kent Bulle was named the Sun Belt Conference Co-Golfer of the Month for February. It marked the second honor for Bulle as he also won the award in February of 2009 as well. Bulle earned Co-Medalist honors at the Mobile Bay Intercollegiate for his fourth career win. Bulle led from start to finish as he opened with a 67 in the first round to equal the second-best round of his career. He led the entire field with 14 birdies as the Blue Raiders grabbed another top five finish by placing fifth in the first tournament of the spring season.

Millard owns team’s top rounds Jason Millard, who owns a career-best round of 65, turned in the Blue Raiders’ top two scoring rounds for 2009-10. The junior from Murfreesboro, Tenn., carded a 66 at the 2009 Mason Rudolph and matched that round when he won the 2010 ASU Red Wolf Classic. The MT record for low round is Emile Vaughn’s 64 in the 1977 Tennessee Intercollegiate.

WHITTURNBOW Head Coach 4th season Two-time SBC Coach of the Year Middle Tennessee, 2000

As he enters his fourth season at the helm, Whit Turnbow has led the Middle Tennessee golf program to unprecedented success with three straight NCAA appearances. Turnbow was named the program’s sixth head coach by Director of Athletics Chris Massaro in July 2007. In three years at the helm, Turnbow has led the Blue Raiders to three NCAA regionals, one NCAA National Championship appearance, a Sun Belt Conference championship, been named the league’s coach of the year twice, and guided the program to a No. 25 ranking during Fall 2009. The team also earned the program’s highest ever seed in the 2010 NCAA Regionals at No. 7. Middle Tennessee won its first SBC Golf Championship in 2009, weeks after Turnbow’s Blue Raiders shocked the field to win the Callaway Collegiate Match Play Championship. Turnbow was named SBC Coach of the Year for the second time in as many years.

Turnbow, 31, led Middle Tennessee to a top-40 national ranking and its first-ever at-large berth in an NCAA Regional in 2007-08. Once there, the Blue Raiders advanced to the NCAA Division I National Championships for the first time (as a Division I member) in West Lafayette, Ind. Middle Tennessee continued to make history at the National Championships when the Blue Raiders made the 15team cut to play on the final day. Middle Tennessee won a school-record five tournaments under Turnbow in 2007-08, including four straight - also a school record for most consecutive tournament titles. The Blue Raiders were an astounding 142-54 during Turnbow’s debut season. For his efforts, Turnbow was named the Sun Belt Conference and Eaton Golf Pride Southeast Regional Coach of the Year. Middle Tennessee was named Golfweek’s National Team of the Week three times in 2007-08 and freshman Jason Millard earned All-American honors, while teammates Chas Narramore and Rick Cochran earned All-Sun Belt first-team honors under Turnbow’s tutelage. Although Turnbow is in his fourth season as head coach, he is no stranger to the program. He was a substantial part of the Middle Tennessee golf program both as a player and assistant coach for nine years - four as a player and five seasons (200207) assisting the men’s and women’s programs. Turnbow replaced long-time coach Johnny Moore, who was in the position

Massaro pointed toward Turnbow’s leadership, recruiting ability and maturity when making the decision to elevate him to head coach. “Whit has demonstrated exceptional leadership skills and proven to be a great recruiter as evidenced by the current group of Blue Raider golfers that he was responsible for recruiting and signing,” Massaro said. “I believe Blue Raider fans are going to be pleased with the manner in which Whit leads this program. He has had the opportunity to play for and coach with a great mentor in Johnny Moore, who allowed Whit to handle more and more of the dayto-day responsibilities of running a program through the years, which has helped prepare him for this job.” Turnbow’s Blue Raiders turned in a 38-19 mark against a rigorous fall schedule in 2007-08, capturing a team championship at the Jaguar Intercollegiate and finishing fifth out of 17 teams in the fall opener at the Scenic City Invitational. Turnbow’s team came up big in its second tournament under him as a head coach when it shot an astounding 38-under 826 on the way to shattering the previous school record of 853 for best three-round tournament. Turnbow was responsible for recruiting and signing each Blue Raider golfer in the program in 2007 when

Wilson, a native of Nashville and a graduate of Father Ryan High School, began his career at Middle Tennessee in January of 2008. Initially, Wilson was helping with thee football program full-time, but when ann opening came up for the golf teams, Wilson ilson immediately increased his responsibilities ies and the move has worked out well. Although it was quite a bit different from football, Wilson enjoys adding golff to his duty list. He and Coach Whit Turnbow ow discovered a program that is put on by Titleist through their Performance Institute. tute. It was a program based on years of research earch in how best to train golfers, and offeredd certification to take the course. Wilson, who was a guest speaker in November at the 2010 World Golf Fitness ss Summit, now has three levels of certification and has learned specific things thatt golfers need to do to have a perfect swing, and to add more power to their swing. Analyzing the movements of each ach golfer, and showing them how to correct ct deficiencies is one of the many areas hee specializes in for the Blue Raiders. “Michael Wilson has turned our strength and conditioning program intoo something that is sought-after by otherr programs around the country,” said re Coach Whit Turnbow. “Other coaches are calling me all the time to see what we are doing. “He has completed all three levels in the Titleist Performance Institute certification process and is one of four in the country that works with a golf team that is certified on the second level. He has

done a tremendous job in taking our strength and conditioning program to what I consider to be one of the best in the country.” He also deals with equipment, and how to use it properly. He talks to the golfers about food and nutrition, right down to what they should and should not eat prior to a match, and also during a match. Wilson instructs the golfers in how to lift weights correctly, so that they are getting the most out of what they are doing. “If Coach Turnbow sees something that needs to be improved, such as a swing, or strength to hit the ball

graduated and started job hunting, Melton told him to call Russell Patterson at Middle Tennessee, who was looking for some help in strength and conditioning. Patterson hired Wilson for football, and golf was added to his duties in August of 2008. Wilson is pleased with how well the golfers have responded to the new program. Despite initially being hesitant to try the new program, it has now been fully accepted and embraced by both teams. “We have definitely seen improvement, especially in attitudes. The guys come in now and they want to work,” said Wilson. “Once they realized that this program had the full support of Coach Turnbow, they bought into it immediately. Now, they really get after it and you can tell by their play on the course.”

“Michael Wilson has turned our strength and conditioning program into something that is sought-after by other programs around the country,” said Coach Whit Turnbow. “Other coaches are calling me all the time to see what we are doing.”

Where the men call home ... STONES RIVER COUNTRY CLUB On October 28, 1946, the charter of the Town and Country Club Inc. was accepted by the incorporators and the first charter membership meeting was held. A. L. Todd Jr. presented the first constitution and by-laws and moved acceptance of the same. The first officers of the club were elected at this meeting: B. N. White, president; C. B. Huggins, vice president; K. P. Ezell, secretary; Robert Lasseter, treasurer. On December 2, 1947, the board confirmed the purchase of 70 acres of land from George Haynes. The original 9 holes were designed and supervised by Mr. Arnold Mears, then of Richland Club, Nashville, and presently “pro emeritus” of Chickasaw Country Club, Memphis. Mr. Mears did an outstanding job and his superintendent on the site was Dr. Elbert Patty. The golf course was started in 1948 and the overall cost was approximately $14,000. An additional 3 acres of land was purchased from George Haynes so that the driveway could be located where it now is rather than down closer to the bridge. The golf course was opened for play at 1 p.m. Saturday, September 10, 1949.

Green fees for guests were $1 on weekdays and $1.50 Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. The formal opening of the club and the dedication ceremonies were held on Saturday, September 17, 1949. Dues were $5 per month. The back nine holes were completed in 1969 and the front nine holes were renovated in 1979. Throughout the years, a pool and six lighted tennis courts were added, offering the Rutherford County community the only private, full-service country club in the area. By 1998, SRCC had grown to over 500 members. Due to the need to expand member facilities, improve the infrastructure of the buildings, and compete for the area’s special event business, the membership voted to rebuild a portion of the clubhouse and renovate adjoining buildings at an expense of $4.3 million. The new clubhouse opened in October 1999 and provided the membership

with multiple dining facilities for adults only, families, fine dining and outdoor dining, expanded men’s/women’s locker room facilities, an exercise room, multiple card rooms, and, most significantly, a spacious ballroom facility to attract special functions and large catering events. Stones River Country Club has hosted several golf events including Tennessee PGA Section Championships, the Ladies Tennessee State Amateur, and the Tennessee Girls State Championship. The head golf professional is Rob McGill.

Stockstill became just the second head coach in the I-A era and led the Blue Raiders to a le league championship and a bowl appearance in his first sea season. Two days following his hiring, Massaro was pre pressed into action to find a replacement to lead the natio tionally recognized women’s basketball program. Massaro ma made his first hire when he brought on board legendary hi high school coach Rick Insell to take over the program. Bo Both Insell and Stockstill won championships in their first se seasons on the job. Massaro has also made a significant upgrade in the Blue Raider football schedule since his arrival.

In March 2008, Massaro made another big move when he announced a four-game series with neighboring rival Vanderbilt of the SEC. The series begins in 2015 and the teams will play twice in Murfreesboro and twice in Nashville.
