Stephanie Priesmeyer (Coach Coop)
Head Womens Coach
Truly one of the most dynamic coaches in all of womens college golf, Mizzou Womens Golf Head Coach Stephanie Priesmeyer has led Mizzou to unprecedented heights in her 15 years at the helm of the Tiger program. She has brought a level of energy and enthusiasm to the table that is infectious and inspiring.
Priesmeyer has led Mizzou to NCAA Regional competition in six of the 13 years she has been at the helm. The Tigers used a record-third-place finish at the NCAA Central Regional in 2005 to make the jump to the NCAA Championships.
Under her leadership, the Tigers have taken home 12 tournament titles and recorded 19 of the 20 lowest 54-hole totals in MU history, including a school-record 872 at the 2008 Las Vegas Collegiate. In addition, 40 of the best 41 single round scores in school history have come since she arrived at MU.
Assistant Womens Coach
Former Tiger Mindy Coyle is beginning her 10th season as part of the Mizzou coaching staff. Coyle concluded her playing career by leading the Tigers to their first-ever NCAA Championships appearance in 2005. Her playing days were highlighted by a runner-up finish at the 2003 Big 12 Conference Championships hosted by Missouri.
“It has been a tremendous asset to our program having Mindy on board as an assistant coach,” head coach Stephanie Priesmeyer said. “From day-to-day activities, to recruiting, to coaching, she has been so positive for our golf team. Mindy is such a competitor and brings a ton of youth, experience and fire to the golf course. This team really looks up to her and certainly has benefited from her competitive desire.”,
As a coach, the former Mizzou standout helped the team to a third place finish at the 2011 Big 12 Championships and enticed one of the countrys top recruiting classes to Columbia for the 2011-12 campaign.
Mizzou Mens Golf head coach Mark Leroux announced the addition of Grant Milner to his program as assistant coach on Aug. 21, 2015, adding immediate high-level golf experience and character for the Tigers. Milner heads into his second season assisting the Tigers in 2016-17, also helping manage day-to-day operations of the program.
The Conference USA Mens Golf Scholar-Athlete of the Year for the 2012-13 season, Milner led Memphis to its third-straight NCAA Tournament as a redshirt junior. Milner paced the group with a 73.8 stroke average and recorded five Top 20 and four Top 10 finishes, including a victorious performance at the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate.
Milner helped lead Memphis to the NCAA Championship Finals as a redshirt sophomore, with the squad placing 28th nationally to conclude the 2011-12 campaign. Memphis also claimed the Conference USA team championship.
