HEAD COACH Bob Lynch Head Coach La Salle ‘79 - 24th Season
Guiding 17 Hawks to All-Conference honors, Bob Lynch begins his 24th season as the head coach of the Saint Joseph’s golf program. The 2003 Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year, he has led the Hawks back to prominence as one of the stronger programs in the Northeast, with several individuals excelling under his teaching, including two All-Region golfers. The architect of one of the region’s most demanding schedules, Lynch took the Saint Joseph’s program to the cusp of its first-ever NCAA Championship berth in 2003 as the Hawks placed second at the Atlantic 10 Championship. The Crimson and Gray’s previous best effort at A-10s was third place, a feat the squad accomplished three straight seasons from 1993-95. He also guided the team to a berth in the Eastern Intercollegiate Golf Association Championships each of those seasons. In his career as head coach, Lynch has compiled an overall record of 20 wins and 22 losses. The last dual meet competition for SJU was a 426-465 win over Lafayette at Llanerch Country Club during the 1992-93 season. Since that time, SJU has competed solely in invitational events that have taken the Hawks all over the country. Additionally, several former Hawks have gone on to have stellar careers thanks to his coaching. Mike McDermott ‘97 won the 2008 Golf Association of Philadelphia Amateur Championship and competed in the U.S. Amateur Championship. Phil Arouca ‘07 claimed the 2011 Illinois Open, while Steve Hudacek ‘09 advanced to finals of the 2011 Golf Association of Philadelphia Amateur Championship. A former standout at Father Judge High School, Lynch is an avid golfer. The 51-year old works for Spikes, a company that specializes in trophies and plaques. The Richboro, Pa., resident also works as an official at high school and college basketball games and works on the scorer’s table for both Saint Joseph’s men’s and women’s basketball games. A 1979 graduate of La Salle University, Lynch and his wife Monica are the parents of five children: Maureen, Bob, Dan, Brian, and Jim.
