Furman Furman Standout Austin Reeves Promoted To Assistant Golf Coach
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Former Furman golf standout Austin Reeves, who joined the Furman men's golf staff as a volunteer assistant coach in the spring of 2013, has been promoted to assistant men's golf coach, as announced today by Paladin head coach Todd Satterfield.
"After Austin helped us last spring in a volunteer capacity, I am extremely excited to have him on board as our assistant coach," said Satterfield. "Austin has done a fantastic job of helping the guys develop as players and he has proven to be a very effective recruiter. His knowledge and experiences will be invaluable to our younger players."
A 2012 Furman University graduate, Reeves captured 2010 Southern Conference Individual Medalist honors while leading the Paladins to the SoCon team title and a berth in the NCAA Southeast Regional. He was named to the 2010 and 2012 All-SoCon teams while garnering 2009-10 Furman Male Athlete of the Year honors.
Reeves, who posted a career 74.1 stroke average over 109 competitive rounds as a Paladin, fashioned a 72.8 stroke average as a junior in 2009-10 en route to earning All-SoCon honors. In addition to his SoCon title, the Greenville, S.C. native captured the Furman Intercollegiate title as a sophomore in March of 2009 with a career-low score of 66 in the final round. Reeves tallied two victories, six top-five finishes and nine top-10 showings during his collegiate career.
"I am very excited for the opportunity to coach at such a great institution and to be able to help players develop as athletes as well as young men," said Reeves. "We have a great group of guys on the team, and I am looking forward to a great season."
A 2007 graduate of Eastside High School, Reeves also claimed the 2011 South Carolina Amateur Championship and competed on the eGolf Professional Tour in 2012.
