I could see waiting till after the NCAA tournament was finished, a lot of the candidates might still be involved. But that's been over for awhile now and no leaks of any interviews or anything.

Great kid, great representation of the school. Doesn't sound like the firing of Coach K was unpopular. Hope this new guy can get things back on track.

-- John Handrigan, the 2015 national assistant coach of the year, has been named head men’s golf coach at the University of Notre Dame. Handrigan brings head coaching experience and time as an associate head coach at the highest level of collegiate men’s golf to the Fighting Irish program.


On the surface it looks like a good hire.

While I certainly don't expect us to rival the top Southern Programs due to being in the Midwest and dealing with the weather, but still other Midwest programs have been more competitive.


At one time we rivalled them. Father Holderith

mainly recruited players from the midwest who could play under all conditions. Also if your Daddy is a legacy and belongs to a couple of top clubs on the west coast helps now.

I remember a couple of years ago I was bird dogging a very good golfer from here to the ND coaches. The kid is on the PGA Tour now. I was told by one of the coaches that "thanks, but we recruit nationally".

















Illinois and Purdue made the finals this year...

and I'd be shocked if they weren't mainly Midwestern Kids. I think Minn has had some good teams and I know Mich made the finals they year that my nephews A&M team won it all. Your comment about recruiting Midwest kids who can play in all conditions hits home. Still tough to beat out the Az,Georgia,Fla,Texas and Calif teams with the advantage of year around good weather.


Prepare to be shocked.

Two of Illinois's six golfers are from the Midwest - one each from IL and IN. The remaining four are from CA, AZ, Italy and Belgium. Four of Purdue's nine are from the Midwest, all IN. The others are from AR, CT, Peru, Italy and Norway


Well at least they have some players from the Midwest..

finish the Monstradium on time and over budget. Much more important for his
legacy.

Baseball and golf are but rounding errors to him.


Or a new football coach or a new baseball coach?
