On Monday night, the Pac-12 Networks’ flagship show, ‘Pac-12 Sports Report,’ revealed Hall of Fame head coach and current Sun Devil Athletics Development Director Linda Vollstedt was named the Pac-12 Women’s Coach of the Century.
In Vollstedt’s 21-year tenure at Arizona State, she led the Sun Devils to six NCAA Championships — more than any other program in the country, at the time, and the only program to win three in a row — nine conference championships and four individual national championships. She also coached 41 All-Americans, 12 conference medalists, 71 All-Conference golfers, 15 Academic All-Americans and 11 U.S. Amateur and Public Links Champions.
Also under her leadership, Vollstedt coached the only undefeated golf team in NCAA history in 1995. The team finished first or tied for first in every tournament en route to the program’s third-straight title. Vollstedt also earned numerous coaching awards while at ASU, including five-time Golfweek National Coach of the Year award, three-time NGCA Coach of the Year, four-time Pac-10 Conference Coach of the Year and six-time NCAA Regional Coach of the Year.
We are so proud to have the iconic Linda Vollstedt as an longtime active LPGA T&CP Member who has contributed GREATLY in the area of Coaching Education and Sectional Service! Congratulations Coach Vollstedt!
