Colorado State Head Women's Golf Coach Annie Young enters her second season at the helm of the Rams program in 2014-15.
In her first season in Fort Collins, Young led the Rams to six top-10 finishes, the most by CSU since 2003-04. The Rams averaged 308.1 strokes per round, over a two-stroke improvement compared to the previous year.
Young, who starred at Oklahoma State from 2001-05 and earned a degree in marketing, began her collegiate coaching career at OSU where she guided her alma mater for three seasons (2008-11). She comes to Colorado State after one season as the head coach at Cal State Northridge where she led the Matadors' program following a brief stint as a private golf instructor during the 2011-12 season.
In her time in Stillwater, Young led the Cowgirls to a pair of top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championships as well as the 2009 Big 12 Conference title. She coached OSU's first NCAA women's individual champion in 2010 when Caroline Hedwall took home the top honors, also garnering 2010 GolfStat Cup Player of the Year and NGCA Player of the Year accolades. Five players earned All-America honors under Young's tutelage including Pernilla Lindberg who finished third at the 2009 NCAA Championships.
Young's impact as an instructor was also key for the Matadors in her one season at CSUN, as she guided her squad to three individual tournament titles, and helped Clariss Guce earn second-team all-Big West honors, the highest such honor for a Matador golfer since 2008.
One of the most decorated players in Cowgirls' golf history, Young earned first-team All-America honors and was the Big 12 Conference Player of the Year as a senior in 2005. She was the individual medalist in leading OSU to the team title at the Big 12 Women's Golf Championship and helped the Cowgirls to an eighth-place finish at the NCAA Championships. Young's career also included a 2004 Big 12 individual title, and she was a three-time All-Big 12 performer (2003-05). In 2004, she helped OSU to a second-place finish at the NCAA Championships, which marked the best finish in Cowgirl golf history.
As an amateur, Young competed in the U.S. Women's Open in 2003 and led the United States to a win in the 2004 Curtis Cup. She won the 2002 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship in Sunriver, Ore. The win also qualified her for the 102nd U.S. Women's Amateur. As a professional, Young has competed on the LPGA Tour, Duramed Futures Tour and the Cactus Tours, where she owns five career victories.
