OSU – Women’s Golf

Written February 4th, 2013 by Ken

Although Spring is 6 weeks away, more or less depending on your ZIP code, the thoughts of golf are beginning to stir. This is to set up up that periodically, from now through mid-May, I’ll be doing some articles on Women’s Golf at Ohio State. These will be match previews, match recaps and other tidbits. These articles will complement the eye-wateringly good work that Janelle does with her ‘News from the WHAC’ series. I’m motivated to do this series for two reasons; OSU has a rich history in NCAA golf, and I golf a fair amount. So there.

Below are fairly brief thumbnails of both coaches and their team.

Therese Hession

The Buckeyes are led by Coach Therese Hession (22nd year) and Assistant Coach Lisa Strom (3rd year). Head coach Therese Hession concluded her 21st season heading the Ohio State women’s golf program at the end of the 2011-12 season and has continued the strong Buckeye golf tradition, building it to even greater heights.

Over her tenure, Hession has led the Buckeyes to seven Big Ten championships, including four of the last 10, and 13 NCAA championship appearances. Her squads have also competed in 19 NCAA regionals the past 20 years, including the last 18 in a row. For her efforts and impressive results, Hession has been named Big Ten Coach of the Year six times (1993, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2003 and 2005). Read More
