Hat Tip Tuesday
Each Tuesday, we offer a “tip of the hat” to current and former students who have been hired, promoted, or embarked on new opportunities.
John Phillips (’13) has been named a full-time assistant coach with the
2014 Atlantic 10 Champion VCU Golf team. He becomes the first full-time assistant in program history. Phillips has served as both a graduate and volunteer assistant with the program since 2012, but his expanded duties will allow longtime VCU Head Coach Matt Ball to press ahead further in recruiting and in other vital areas. For the past year, Phillips has interned with the Virginia State Golf Association, where he organized and administered the 2013 VHSL Girls State Championship and several other qualifiers. He also helped administer a number of other VSGA Championships during his tenure, including the State Open of Virginia and the VSGA Junior Match Play Championship. He has also served as a caddie at the USGA National Championship and scored 90 on the USGA Rules Golf Test, said to be the highest ever for someone on the first try.
