PENN STATE 2012–13 • MEN’S GOLF


Head Coach Greg Nye “Our program has grown on the national scene as we watched our rankings consistently stay in the top 25 percent of all Division I golf programs,” Nye said. “We have challenged ourselves with our schedule and the quality of our play has moved right along with that challenge.”

Nye’s national amateur tournament experience is considerable. While at Wooster, he twice gained exemptions to play in the Western Amateur and Porter Cup. He also played in the Eastern, Canadian and U.S. Amateurs. He played professionally on the North Florida mini-tour in 1980.

The Road to Happy Valley

A Life In Golf

After eight years as head coach of the Bowling Green State University men’s and women’s golf teams in Bowling Green, Ohio, Nye was attracted to Penn State and its membership in the Big Ten Conference. The 1987 Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year developed a familiarity with Penn State as a visiting primary instructor to its golf camps. Nye is currently the codirector of the Penn State golf camps, which run for four weeks each summer.

When asked about how his life in golf and Penn State fit together Nye said, “Sports, golf, competing, coaching and teaching have been with me from the beginning. I have been very fortunate to be able to pursue a passion for competitive golf at a few very special places with many outstanding people. Penn State has been one of those places. I have particularly enjoyed the Penn State approach to intercollegiate athletics. Penn State supports our program to be competitive athletically on a conference and national level, but insists that the student athletes’ education and well being remains first and foremost.” Nye and his wife, Marjie, reside in State College with their two sons, Russell (22), and Graham (19).

Professional Leadership Nye has been a member of the Golf Coaches Association of America for 29 years and served as the Chair of the Ethics committee from 1993-2003. In addition, he also served the NCAA as a District Selection Chair for the NCAA Championship from 1997-99. Nye, a PGA “Class A” member since 1982, began his professional career working as a golf professional. Nye also served on the Athletics Council on Diversity and Inclusion from 2006-11, chairing the council in 2009-10. In the spring of 2012, Nye received the “Diversity and Inclusiveness Award” from the Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics Success with Honor Awards Program.

Playing Career Nye graduated from the College of Wooster (Ohio) in 1979 where he earned All-America honors each of his four seasons. As a sophomore, junior and senior, he received first-team honors. With a second-team selection in his first year, Nye and his teammates captured the 1975 NCAA Division III Golf Championship in which he finished eighth individually. Before concluding his collegiate career, Nye earned second, fourth and sixth-place finishes in the national championship. Nye was the individual champion in the Ohio Athletic Conference in his final two years at Wooster. In 1978, he set a conference margin of victory record winning by 11 shots. He played on Fighting Scot squads that captured conference titles in 1975, 1976, and 1977. In 1990, Nye was inducted into Wooster’s Athletic Hall of Fame and was honored with induction into the Wayne County, Ohio Sports Hall of Fame in Wooster, Ohio in 2002. In the fall of 2009, Nye was also inducted into the Wooster High School Hall of Fame.

Nye Family Golf Tradition Coach Nye, his two brothers and his father have all been greatly involved in the sport of golf. Father Bob Nye coached all three sons at the College of Wooster in Ohio and has seen each son find his own niche professionally. Bob Nye coached golf and soccer at the College of Wooster from 1963-1996 and was inducted into Wooster’s Hall of Fame in 1997. He served as the president of the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) from 1984-86 and was inducted into its Hall of Fame in 1998. In 2000, the elder Nye received the GCAA’s highest distinction by being presented with the Honor Award for his lifetime contributions to golf. He was named Golfweek’s Father of the Year in 2007. Coach Nye’s brother, Scott, is the head golf professional at the prestigious Merion Golf Club, located in Ardmore, Pa., which has hosted four United States Open Championships. Merion hosted the 2009 Walker Cup and will host the 2013 U.S. Open. Nye’s youngest brother, Gary, serves as the head golf professional at the Rolling Rock Club in Ligonier, Pa.

Assistant Coach Mark Leon “The combination of both academic and athletic facilites was overwhelming,” said Leon. He recalls thinking that the campus and downtown area were unlike any of the other colleges he had visited thus far. He took an immediate liking to the overall feel of the Penn State community, however, he says what truly sold him was meeting his future teammates. “Everyone on the team hung out together, pulled for each other and took care of one another,” said Leon. “Coming from a large family, and another country, Penn State felt like a place that would feel like home. It turned out to be the best decision of my life.”

Coming to Penn State Leon was initially introduced to the Penn State men’s golf program by former assistant coach Richard Distlerath while competing at an American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) event in Detroit, Mich., the summer after his senior year of high school. At the time, Leon still had one more year of high school to complete, with Canada requiring five years. Shortly after, Leon had the opportunity to meet with Coach Nye on his recruiting trip to Penn State. The trip marked the last of Leon’s five official college visits. He says from the moment he stepped on the campus he knew he was destined to end up in Happy Valley.

PENN STATE 2012–13 • MEN’S GOLF

Leon’s Time at Penn State Leon was a member of the Nittany Lion squad from 2001-05. He earned All-Big Ten honors in 2005, 2004 GCAA All-America recognition and All-Region 2003-05. He is tied for fifth on Penn State’s career scoring leaders list with a 73.79 average in the 134 rounds he played on the squad. As a junior, Leon led the team to a great finish in the 2004 NCAA championships. He posted a three-round, 1-under-par total of 279 (69-69-70-71) to tie for sixth, the best all-time finish in Penn State history.

Life After Graduation After graduating from Penn State in 2005, Leon pursued a career in golf. He brought acclaim to his alma mater when he made it to the quarterfinals of the 2005 U.S. Amateur Championship. The young graduate won his qualifier in Altoona and advanced to the quarterfinals. In 2006, Leon played on the Canadian National Team. He was a medalist in the 2006 Canadian Amateur and made match play in the U.S. Amateur for the second consecutive year. He went on to qualify for the Canadian Tour, of which he was a member of from 2007-10.

Leon Returns to Alma Mater After five years of competing as a professional, Leon made the decision to return to his alma mater as the assistant coach.

“I am thrilled to be coming back to State College and rejoining the golf team as a coach,” said Leon. “Being a studentathlete at Penn State provided me with great memories and friends that I will cherish for lifetime. To have the opportunity to come back and share in those experiences with a new generation of Penn State golfers is an opportunity that I am very much looking forward to.” Leon welcomed the opportunity to work in the new facilities and continue the success the program has experienced in years past. “Since I graduated in 2005 a lot has changed with our program, particularly with regard to the facilities,” said Leon. “Coach Nye and Coach (Jon) Dunlap really ushered in a new look for Penn State men’s golf, and it is reflected in the success of the team in the past six years. The Blue Course, team practice area and Tombros Varsity Clubhouse have given our team a worldclass facility to hone its skills and compete on a national level. Despite everything being so new and so different, it’s still like coming home for me. Like all proud alumni, I love this University and I will do my best to represent it as a coach.”

Leon Family Tradition When asked about how he got involved in the sport of golf, Leon said it was something his dad, John, got him and his three siblings started in from a young age. The Leon siblings have all shared a love for the sport, which is made evident in all of their collegiate paths. The eldest Leon, Michael, played golf at the University of Victoria where he helped the team win a Canadian National Title in 2005. Matthew Leon, who followed Mark to Penn State, was one of the top junior golfers in Canada. He held a spot on the Nittany Lion roster from 2005-09. The youngest Leon, Vanessa, played golf for two years at Michigan State before transferring to the University of British Columbia. While there, she helped the team win an NAIA title in 2010.

Life in Happy Valley After college, Leon married Jaime Stich, a member of the Penn State women’s soccer team from 2001-05. The couple resides in State College with their 3-year-old daughter, Cameron.

2012-13 Review | Fall Gopher Invitational September 9-10, 2012

The men’s golf team kicked off their 2012-13 season at the eighth annual Gopher Invitational Sept. 9-10 at the Spring Hill Golf Club in Wayzata, Minn. Hosted by the University of Minnesota men’s golf program, this par 72, 7,020-yard course welcomed 15 teams from 11 different collegiate conferences. The Nittany Lions, who made their second consecutive appearance at the Gopher Invitational, faced Big Ten competition in the host team, the Minnesota Gophers, as well as the University of Iowa. Among other competition included six teams making their tournament debut: Arizona State, California, New Mexico, Memphis, Oklahoma, and St. Johns. Penn State’s lineup consisted of seniors Jay Woodward and Anthony DeGol, sophomore Jens Talbert, and freshmen Geoff Vartelas and Chris Houston who made their collegiate debuts. The Nittany Lions faced a disqualification in the second round of the Gopher Invitational after two players failed to sign their scorecards. Despite this setback, senior Jay Woodward finished tied for 19th on the individual leaderboard with an 11-over-par total 227. Anthony DeGol was also looking to jumpstart his senior season and finished tied for 48th at the Invitational while posting rounds of 82-76-76 (234). Freshman Geoff Vartelas had an impressive start to the tournament where he sat tied for 12th after two rounds, scoring 75 and 72, respectively. However, round three is where Vartelas struggled, making 6 bogeys and 5 double bogeys to tally a score of 20-over-par 92. Both second round scores earned by sophomore Jens Talbert and freshman Chris Houston were disqualified. In rounds 1 and 3, Talbert posted a steady score of 79, including 4 birdies and 6 bogeys.

Michael Carter Legacy

IN MEMORIAM

Mike Carter’s Legacy Lives On With Tree and Scholarship The Penn State golf family is still healing from the loss of Mike Carter — the spunky and colorful sophomore player from Westfield, N.J. - who passed away on February 13, 2002. Carter, who was known around the course and across campus for his upbeat attitude and engaging personality, was returning home when his car lost control and went off the roadway. Penn State was devastated and the Nittany Lions golf family mourned and remembered their fallen teammate with unity and grace. The men’s team wore pink pants as a tribute to Carter at the 2002 Rutherford Invitational, the Big Ten Championship and the NCAA East Regional. “He was a very bright light on our team, and we will always remember how he lived each day to the fullest,” said Coach Nye. To ensure that the memory of Mike Carter lives on in perpetuity, the Penn State golf family and the Carter family have taken two significant measures. In the spring of 2002, the Penn State team and coaches planted a red maple tree near the 18th hole on the home Blue Course in State College, Pa. and dedicated it, with a plaque, to Mike Carter. In 2003, Michael and Mary Lou Carter endowed a grant in the name of their son to be awarded annually to the golf program.

Lions on Tour Penn State has long been a teeing ground for which graduates use to begin their professional careers. Several alumni are or have pursued their dream of playing professional golf. Matt Abbott, a 2001 graduate has seen great success since 2007 on the Gateway Tour and Minor League Tour. On the Gateway Tour he as earned over $91,000 and made 32-of-40 cuts in the last two seasons. On the Minor League Tour, Abbott has earned numerous victories and over $20,000 in earnings. Mark Leon, a 2005 grad, earned Canadian Tour exempt status in the fall of 2007. After a complete season on tour, Leon finished high enough on the money list to gain exempt status for the 2009 season. Leon’s top finish of the 2008 season was a second-place finish. He advanced to the 2nd round of PGA Tour Q-School. Leon also spent time playing on the Great Lakes Tour before returning to Penn State as assistant coach in 2011. Greg Pieczynski (2006) has spent much of his short professional career on the Gateway Tour. He won the 2008 Philadelphia Open as well as the Philadelphia PGA Assistants Championship. He finished seventh at the PGA National Assistants Championship. Jimbo Fuller, a 2003 graduate, began his professional career in 2006 on the Grey Goose Gateway Tour and had a very successful season. Fuller won one tournament, made 14-of-22 cuts and earned over $55,000. Last year, Fuller qualified for the second round of the PGA Tour Q-School. Adam Decker (1996) is now the head coach for the University of Richmond, and has played in PGA Tour & Nationwide Tour events, including the 1998 Kemper Open, 2000 Florida Classic, 2001 Hershey Open and the 2001 Greater Cleveland Open. He had also played on the former Tear Drop Tour, where he won twice, and on the Golden Bear Tour, where he accumulated over $45,000. Dirk Ayers, a 1995 alum, has been a regular on the Canadian Tour. He joined the tour in 1997 through Q-School and has been a member ever since. His best year on the Canadian Tour was in 2004 when he finished runner-up twice and finished ninth on the money list with over $42,000 in earnings. Ayers has also played in several PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour events. He made the cut at the PGA Tour’s Canadian Open in 2004 and played the B.C. Open in 1998. His Nationwide Tour experiences include the 1996 Buffalo Open, 2003 Alberta Calgary Classic and 2004 Boise Open. Ayers has also competed on the Australasian PGA Tour. 1993 alum, Jason Tyska perhaps turned in the most impressive performance by becoming the second Penn Stater to qualify for the U.S. Open but first to make the cut at the 1999 Open held in Pinehurst, North Carolina. Tyska went on to finish 53rd. He earned his way on to the 1999 Nationwide Tour by making it through all three stages of PGA Tour Q-school. He went on to make the cut in 12 events where he had four top-10 finishes. In 2000, Tyska played in four Nationwide Tour events and qualified for the PGA Tour’s Michelob Championship at Kingsmill.

Danny O’Neill is the only Penn Stater to qualify for both the U.S. Open (1985) and U.S. Senior Open (2001). O’Neill is a 1972 graduate of Penn State. O’Neill remains the only Penn Stater to earn All-America honors all four years of his career. In his career, O’Neill has played in the 1990 & 1996 Buffalo Open (Nationwide Tour). He qualified for the 2002 U.S. Senior PGA Tour by finished 4th at the final stage. In his rookie year on tour (2002), Danny played in 29 events and earned over $216,000. Three-time All-American Kevin Foley graduated in 2010 and has since enjoyed a life in golf. Most recently the talented Penn State alum secured the title at the 91st NJSGA Open Championship with a three-round total of 205 (68-68-69). T.J. Howe, a 2011 graduate, secured his first professional title at the NGA Pro Golf Tour. The tournament, which lasted from Nov. 8-10, 2011 brought in golfers from all over the world. The competitors participated in two rounds before a top-16 cut was made. Howe successfully made the cut, coming in tied for ninth after the second round with a score of 144 (71-73). In the final round, Howe fired a 4-under-par 68, catapulting himself into the first place slot on the leader board. The talented alum concluded the tournament with a total of 212 (71-73-68) “Penn State has had its share of talented players through the years, and these guys have given it a shot,” said Coach Nye. “The young men who come into our program are here for education first, but they all have the tour as a goal or a dream. Some of these guys are close to making it happen. Some of them have given it their all and have now chosen other career paths. It is with great pride that we watch their efforts.” Many Penn State alumni work as golf professionals throughout the U.S. and some still compete as club professionals. These professionals, combined with the alumni trying to make the various tours, have helped Penn State touch the golf community and will help line the fairways for current and future Nittany Lion golfers.


Penn State Golf History

Willie Parks was the designer and creator of the first Penn State golf course. The first golf holes were laid out on the Penn State campus in the late 1800s. The game became more and more popular and eventually became a 9-hole course in 1901. Known as the Golf Club of State College, the club became so popular that 50 percent of the faculty and students played the game. The possible location of this routing existed near the current location of Pollock Hall with some claiming that the location was closer to the present location of Beaver Stadium. In December of 1908, a new club was proposed and the generous support of Mr. H. Walton Mitchell, a strong alumnus and faithful alumni trustee, and other owners leased land known as the Dale Farm at a reduced rate for the purpose of a new club. The land was maintained by the course caretaker who lived in the farmhouse with their family and not only maintained the course with a flock of sheep but also would earn part pay from the produce he could raise off the land not occupied by the links. It is believed that the area of land is where parts of the current White Course are located today. Former Penn State Athletic Director Hugo Bezdek, hired in 1918, wanted the University to have better golf facilities and eventually a varsity team. In 1921, with public school money and a dream in his bag, Bezdek lured Golf Professional Robert B. Rutherford Sr., from New Britain, Conn. to oversee the change from a nine-hole course to an 18-hole championship course. Bezdek and Rutherford hired Willie Park Jr., an internationally known figure who designed some of the best courses in both the United States and Europe. Park, a native of Musselburgh, Scotland, won The British Open in 1887 and 1889.

The annual college championship was a popular event that was contested each fall on the college links. In 1922, Rutherford, nicknamed “Pop”, was named Head Coach and organized the first men’s golf team at Penn State. It was from the college championship that Rutherford would form the first varsity team. The team members were: J.W. Crookston (Captain), F.E. Dale, T.F. Connell, J.L. Bair, and C.M. Andrews (Manager). The first match in Penn State varsity golf history was played on the new campus course on May 26, 1922. The Nittany Lion golfers were defeated by the University of Pennsylvania in their intercollegiate debut by a score of four to three. Had the Lions defeated Penn, they likely would have been invited to The Intercollegiates (National Championship). In 1923, intercollegiate golf began to take shape. Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Cornell, Dartmouth, Columbia, Penn and Williams developed plans to form a golf league. With the steady growth and interest in golf at Penn State, it was only a matter of time before Penn State joined. Each team in the league was to play matches and the team with the best record was declared the champion. With the 1923 Nittany Lion schedule finalized, word was received in April that Penn State had been admitted to the Intercollegiate Golf League. Penn State would begin league play in 1924. The 1923 schedule included matches against Princeton, Lock Haven CC, Penn and Pittsburgh. The Lions would finish their second season of intercollegiate golf with a 6-1 record and were invited to The Intercollegiates where they went on to finish in eighth place. The first undefeated season in school history occurred in 1927. That year, Penn State went 5-0-1. The Lions proved to always be a challenge on the links during Pop’s years. The Lions only had three losing seasons from 1927 to 1942.

The War Years Through the Mid-Fifties With the major developments of World War II in the mid 1940s Rutherford was forced to have a limited schedule in 1943 and 44 and was unable to field a team in 1945 and 46. Varsity golf returned to Penn State in 1947 with a limited schedule. The Lions played five dual matches, finishing third at the EIGA Championship and 25th at The Intercollegiate. Rutherford’s team went on to have three more undefeated campaigns with the most significant being in 1948. The 1948 squad went into the EIGA Playoffs with an unblemished record of 3-0. The linksmen went on to beat Pitt, 8-1, Cornell, 6-3, and Army, 9-0, to reach the EIGA Championships in Atlantic City, N.J. In the first round of the finals, Penn State went on to beat a tough Georgetown

squad by a score of 6-3. Penn State had reached the championship match for the first time in school history. Penn State’s previous best finish at the EIGA Finals had been in 1947 where they finished in third. The 1948 squad, captained by Donald Hart, was not going to be denied the afternoon of May 15, 1948. The Nittany Lions came out hot and would not cool down. All six Lions would win their matches in dominating fashion and therefore also claim the three best-ball matches. They went on to shut out 21-time NCAA Champion, Yale, by a score of 9-0 and became the first Non-Ivy league school to win the EIGA Championship. Coach Boyle was a starting member of the 1948 team and remembered the history made by winning the EIGA with a twinkle in his eye. “We were so excited to win the Eastern Intercollegiate as those Ivy teams were awfully tough in those days,” said Joe Boyle. The team would go on to finish the season undefeated with a record of 10-0 and would go on to finish in 16th place at the NCAA championships in Palo Alto, Calif. The first Grant-in-Aid (Golf Scholarship) was awarded to Rod Eaken of Reading, Pa. In the early summer of 1950, a freshman to be, Eaken received some disheartening news. He had received a letter from Penn State advising that, due to budgetary restrictions, five sports had been discontinued. During the summer months there was at least one invitational golf tournament held each week at some of the best country clubs in the Philadelphia area. One of the weekly competitors in these invitationals was a Penn State alumnus and member of the Penn State Board of Directors: Fred Waring. Fred owned the famous Shawnee-on-the-Delaware resort and had his world famous band “The Pennsylvanians” based there. In June of 1950, while playing at Scranton Country Club, Eaken’s competitor that week was none other than Waring. During the round, Eaken approached Waring and asked him if he was aware that Penn State had dropped the golf team. Fred was outraged and said to , “Penn State will have a golf team if I have to pay for it myself.” Eaken, obviously elated, wondered Waring would actually do something. He had never heard another word from Waring but when he returned to school in September, the Golf Team had been reinstated. It was not until several years later that the other sports were reinstated. Rutherford Jr., continued to build upon the success of his father. In his inaugural season as coach, Rutherford Jr., led PSU senior Tommy Smith to the NCAA championship in New Mexico.

Penn State Golf History Although his teams did not claim an EIGA Championship, his teams finished the 1953 and 1955 seasons undefeated. In his seven-year span as head coach, Rutherford Jr., finished with a career mark of 50-13.

Coach Joe Boyle – Match Play to Medal In 1957, a new coach was named in Joe Boyle. Coach Boyle’s first day of work as the Penn State golf coach just happened to be the same day as that of legendary football coach Joe Paterno. Boyle worked as Rutherford Jr.’s, assistant and was a member of the historic 1948 EIGA Championship team and captain of the 1949 team. Boyle wasted little time building off of Rutherford’s successes. In his first year as coach, his squad went 10-2 and finished second in the EIGA Championship. In his 25 years as head coach, Boyle’s teams won seven EIGA Championships, including back-to-back titles in 1963 and 1964, and a string of three from 1971-1973. He had a team or individual compete for Penn State at the National Championship in 19 of his 25 years with the team and had a best finish of 16th place in 1969. Boyle finished his coaching career with a dual match record of 197-38-1, which included seven undefeated seasons. He was an active member in the Golf Coaches Association of America and served as the associations’ President in 1967-68. Boyle was inducted in the GCAA Hall of Fame in 1987 and was the recipient of the GCAA’s highest award, The Honor Award, in 2007. The Honor Award which began in 1985 is awarded annually to a member of the GCAA Hall of Fame who is retired and has made a significant contribution to the game of golf. Boyle coached in an era that had a lot of change in collegiate golf. Part way through his coaching career intercollegiate golf gradually went away from traditional dual matches (Match Play) to stroke-play tournaments involving a number of teams. The Lions went from playing 10-15 dual-matches a year to 6-8 stroke play tournaments. One of the first and favorite tournaments that the Lion golfers became regular participants in was the Indiana (Pa.) Invitational played at the Indiana Country Club. The Lions claimed their first IUP title in 1964 and went on to win the title 10 out of the next 11 years. With the popularity of intercollegiate golf growing across the nation, districts were also created to select the top teams from various areas of the country. Under Boyle, the Lions were traditionally one of the top-ranked teams in District II, made up of the northern Mid-Atlantic States. William (Bill) Davidson is an important name in the history of Penn State golf. He became the program’s first-ever champion of the EIGA Championship and first All-American in 1959. In the 1958 EIGA Championship, Davidson beat teammate Johnny Felus in the semifinals and went on to win the title the next day beating Ted Weiss of Yale. He was named team captain for the 1959 squad. In his career, Davidson qualified for the NCAA championship all three years he was a Nittany Lion (1957-59). He finished his career with a regular-season match-play record of 22-9. In the fall of 1969, a young freshman from Jamestown, N.Y. enrolled at Penn State. Dan O’Neill immediately made an impact becoming the Lions No. 1 man by mid spring of 1970 and finished in 12th place at the NCAA championship. That finish earned him All-America honors which he would achieve in each of his next three years with the Nittany Lions, becoming the first four-time All-American. In the summer of 1972, Dan O’Neill qualified for the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and made the 36-hole cut. His cut-making putt was seen live across the nation on ABC. In the late 1960’s golf became so popular on the University Park campus, that administration decided to build a second golf course. The new course was named the “Blue” and was built on the far west portion of the campus property and had a separate entrance off of College Ave.

PENN STATE 2012–13 • MEN’S GOLF

The original campus course was renamed the “White” course. The Blue course would open in 1970 at a par of 72 and length of 7,010 yards. It had 87 bunkers and three ponds. The course was designed by the architecture firm of Harrison & Grabin and built by university employees. It became the primary course for all Penn State Intercollegiate competitions.

Kennedy Leads Lions to Atlantic 10 Dominance In January 1982, Mary Kennedy-Zierke, the women’s coach at the time, was promoted to head coach of the men & women’s teams following the retirement of Joe Boyle. “Fall” collegiate golf was now a norm and Coach Kennedy-Zierke led a number of successful teams in her 10 years as head coach. Kennedy, an outstanding teacher, developed several all-district players and guided the Lions to prominence in eastern golf her last five years with the program. She was named District II Coach of the Year in 1987 and 1991. Her teams claimed six Atlantic 10 Conference Championships, including five in a row from 1986-90. Through this period of Penn State golf , nearly all competition was still Eastern based. Through these years, Coach Kennedy’s team improved year after year, nearly always atop the leader board in District II competitions. Overall under Kennedy’s guidance the Lions won 19 events, and twice she was named District II Coach of the Year. The program was given a big lift in the mid 1980s when the massive indoor facility, Holuba Hall, was completed. This free span structure covers two indoor 80-yard practice fields side-by-side. The 118,000-square foot facility, complete with the latest indoor turf surface, provided the Lions with a facility to get an early start on each spring. In 1992, with the development and expansion of the “West” Campus and the inconvenience of running the golf operation from two separate locations, both the Blue and White courses underwent a major facelift. The $1.5 million expansion was generated through the golf course facilities. The golf operation became more efficient with the renovation project of both courses would begin play from the Blue Course Pro Shop and eventually the Walker Clubhouse. Mark Kennedy coached the 1987 golf team to a second place finish at the Merril Lynch Invitational and a first place finish in the Eastern Championship. The 1979 men’s golf team under Joe Boyle won first place at the Wooster Invitational against 20 other teams. They also took first place at the Nittany Lion Open in a field of 19. The 1986-87 men’s golf season concluded with five first-place finishes and a 31st finish at the NCAA Championships.


Penn State Golf History Nye - Builds and Goes National in Scope On Aug, 28, 1992 it was announced that former Bowling Green head men’s & women’s coach, Greg Nye, would take over the men’s team from retiree Men’s and Women’s coach Mary Kennedy-Zierke and lead the Lion golfers in the Big Ten Conference. In Nye’s first season as the Lions’ coach, he led them to six team championships, including the 1993 Eastern Championship. The Lions finished eighth in the Big Ten Championship and were the top-ranking team in District II. Eventually, they finished the season in a tie for 16th at the NCAA East Regional played in Charlottesville, Va. Freshman Dirk Ayers was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year. The 1993-94 season was one for the record books. In Coach Nye’s second year at the helm, the Nittany Lions went on to claim eight tournament titles. Penn State was in its second year as a member of the Big Ten Conference and the Nittany Lions went to Madison, Wis. and finished in sixth place. When the newest edition of the Blue and White golf courses opened in 1994, golfers were greeted with completely new routings for both courses. The back nine of the Blue Course from the 1970 design became the current front nine and a new nine-holes, designed by Tom Clark, 1971 Penn State graduate, was built for the Blue Course as the back nine. The new Blue Course was completely opened for play on May 13, 1994 with a par of 72 and length of 6,525 yards. The White Course was reduced to 12 holes and six new holes were added, becoming a par-70, 6,008-yard layout. With the NCAA Regional system put into play in 1989 the Nittany Lions qualified annually for the NCAA East Regional and reached the NCAA Finals in 1996. The 1996 Nittany Lion team made history, becoming the first Northeast golf program to qualify for NCAA finals since regionals began. Adam Decker, a one time Penn State walk – on, nearly won the NCAA East Regional finishing second, and went on the following year to make the All America team. Following their historic achievement in the spring of 1996, the Lions wasted no time proving that they were once again the top team in District II. Like in 1994, the Nittany Lions captured a record eight tournament titles. With 29 team titles in six seasons, Penn State was dominating the Northeast and changed its schedule to a more national one. Over the next five seasons, the Lions traveled to such places as Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, California, Colorado and Hawaii. Though these years the Nittany Lions were lead by the program’s 13th All-American, Matt Abbott.

The product of a more difficult schedule came together for the 2003-04 team. Early in the fall of 2003, the Nittany Lions captured three tournament titles in a row. The key to the schedule that season was winning the MacDonald Cup, hosted

by Yale University. The Yale University GC was the host of the spring’s NCAA East Regional. After 36 holes of the Regional, the Nittany Lions were shocking the college golf world. In the lead with 18 holes to play, the Lions ended up finishing second behind Clemson University. Nye’s team went on to beat No. 1-ranked Florida, as well as Georgia, Georgia Tech, Auburn and North Carolina. Two weeks later, the Lions would ride the momentum of their regional finish and become the first Northeast golf team of the stroke-play era to make the cut at the NCAA Finals. Mark Leon went on to finish in sixth place and became Penn State’s 14th All-American. In the spring of 2005, in order to compete with Big Ten Conference facilities, the Blue Course and varsity practice facilities underwent their most recent renovation and additions. The Blue Course was lengthened some 700 yards to 7,228 yards. Water hazards were added to holes two, three, five and 15. The most significant changes to the Blue Course occurred on holes seven and eight. Hole seven became 465 yards, par four and hole eight was reduced to 215 yards, par three. New tee boxes, two fairway bunkers, a pitch green, and practice bunker were added to the practice facilities located on the range. A new two-plus acre varsity short-game area was built for the teams behind the 14th green of the Blue Course. The area includes a 13,000-sq. ft. putting and chipping green and an 10,000 sq. ft. “impact” green, surrounded by three fairways and bunkers of four different styles. A big change occurred to college golf in the summer of 2007. The NCAA Golf Committee had decided to change the NCAA Regional qualification system. Districts no longer existed and qualifying for Regional play was now based purely on a team’s national rank.

The Lions would finish the regular season with a stunning head-to-head record of 119-15-0. At the Central Regional, led by a second-place finish from two time All-Big Ten selection Robert Rohanna, the Lions finished tied for eighth place and advanced on to the NCAA Finals hosted by Big Ten member Purdue. After three rounds of play at the NCAA Finals, the Lions stood in 25th place of the 30 teams and would miss the 54hole cut. Kevin Foley advanced as an individual to the final round and finished 23rd and became Penn State’s 15th All-American. Coach Nye was named Mid-Atlantic Region Coach of the Year for the sixth time.

Big National Wins Bring Highest Ranking In the fall of 2007, Indiana played host to the Wolf Run Intercollegiate where the Lions would knock off Big Ten rivals Indiana, Michigan and Northwestern, as well as SEC teams like Kentucky and Arkansas to claim the first of two consecutive wins. The confident Lions went to Richmond, Va., the next week and defended their VCU Shootout title. In that victory, Penn State knocked off perennial top-25 teams Wake Forest and North Carolina. Kevin Foley claimed the individual title with a 15-under-par performance. The following week the Lions received their highest-ever national ranking, at No. 6 in the nation. They were also named Golfweek Magazine “Team of the Week” for their recent play. GoPSUsports.com • PENN STATE 2011–12

Ninth in East Regional, Nittany Lions Appear In 1996 NCAA Finals Following a solid regular season that included three tournament titles, the Nittany Lions peaked at the end of the 1996 spring term. After finishing second at the Eastern Championships and sixth at the Big Ten championships, Penn State surged at the NCAA East Regional, which was played on the Monster Course at the Concord Resort in Kiamesha Lake, N.Y. Facing the best teams in Eastern golf, the Nittany Lions came off the tee box with first-round ferocity, finishing in a five-way tie for seventh place after an opening round 310. Senior Adam Decker (left) led with a two-over 74. In the second round, Penn State improved its team score by six strokes, but fell into a three-way tie for 15th — below the cut line that qualified the top 11 teams for the NCAA Finals. Decker fired a 71 to keep the Lions in contention. In the final round, the Nittany Lions ripped apart the Concord course, making shot after pivotal shot in a miraculous run that ended with a 296 — the third-best score of the day — to tie for ninth place and a berth in the NCAA Finals.

PENN STATE 2012–13 • MEN’S GOLF

Byron Clift (right), a junior, led the Lions with a final round 72. Decker shot a 74 to tie for second place on the individual leaderboard with a total 219, a monumental achievement for the senior, who came to the squad as a freshman walk-on. Seniors Dirk Ayers and Mike Banzhoff and sophomore Joey Chuasiriporn all finished with 75 for the final round and the three-round team total of 910 tied with Tennessee and Alabama. The Lions’ berth in the Finals was not only monumental for Penn State, but for the entire Eastern region as the Lions became the first team in the relatively short history of both Districts I and II to reach the Finals. For the first time since 1987, Penn State headed to the NCAA Finals, held in 1996 at the challenging Honors Course in Chattanooga, Tenn. Penn State played well, but failed to make the team cut after two rounds. Ayers led Penn State individually, making the individual cut and finishing in a tie for 47th place overall after an opening round 71. Penn State placed 29th overall as a team, which at the time was the top finish of any Big Ten team at the Finals.

Penn State Second at NCAA East Regional The 2004 men’s golf team earned a trip to the NCAA Tournament after shocking the golf world with a second place finish at the East Regional held in New Haven, Conn. The Nittany Lions fired a 10 over par 290 to hold fifth place after one round. Greg Pieczynski shot a one-over par 71 to help the Lions take a lead over five of the nation’s top 20 teams according to Golfweek/ Sagarin rankings. The squad ended the second day of NCAA East Regional competition in first place among the 27-team field. The Lions shot five-over par for a total score of 575. Pieczynski led the Lions in their five-man field firing a 71 for the second consecutive day to sit two strokes over par. He held a tie for ninth place individually, while Ted Neville shot a 70 to finish the second round 3-over in a tie for 19th place. Penn State completed one of the greatest performances in program history on the final day of the tournament by finishing in second place in the field. The Nittany Lions, who entered the regional as the No. 19 seed, beat seven Top 20 teams to earn their first berth in the NCAA Finals since 1996. Pieczynski finished in a tie for fourth place after finishing with a total score of 211 (+1). Mark Leon shot a 216 (73-71-72), Marco Poccia shot a 219 (73-73-73), Neville had a 220 (73-70-77) and Jason Pannone shot a 226 (77-76-73). “It was just an enormous effort,” said Penn State head coach Greg Nye. “We had played well at the Big Tens and last weekend at the Maxwell and just continued to play even better. When the pressure was on, we got better. After finishing the first round in fifth place, we proved we were more than up to the task on Friday and again today. We beat some great programs head-to-head.”

The Rutherford Intercollegiate, hosted by Penn State, has become one of the top events in the Northeast, annually featuring a top field of Eastern teams and several squads from around the nation. The Nittany Lions have dominated the Rutherford since it was established as the Nittany Lion Invitational in 1975, winning the tournament 22 times. Seventeen Penn State golfers have medaled atop the leaderboard, the last featuring T.J. Howe in 2011. The 2012 Spring Rutherford Intercollegiate was the 36th edition of the tournament. The Nittany Lions finished in fifth place with a threeround score of 920 (304-305-311). The tournament became known as the Rutherford Intercollegiate in 1983 to honor R.B. “Pop” Rutherford Sr., the man known to the Nittany Lions as the “father of Penn State golf.” Rutherford organized the first Penn State golf team in 1922 and coached it until 1949. R.B. Rutherford Jr. continued his father’s coaching tradition from 1950-1956 and furthered a legacy that is recalled each spring.
