    NU Signs World's 11th-Ranked Amateur to National Letter of Intent

    Matt Fitzpatrick, 2012 British Boys champion, will join the Wildcats next year

    David Inglis joined Northwestern as its assistant men's golf coach prior to the 2010-11 season, marking the first collegiate coaching job for the former NCAA All-American and professional golfer.

    Inglis, a native of Edinburgh, Scotland, was a four-time champion of the Western Athletic Conference and three-time All-American from 2000-04 at Tulsa, also winning Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar Athlete honors from the GCAA in 2003 and 2004. He earned a bachelor's degree in business administration in 2004.

    Northwestern has qualified for the NCAA Regionals in all four of Inglis' seasons, advancing to the NCAA National Championships field in 2011. In both 2012-13 and 2013-14, Inglis was one of three finalists for the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) Jan Strickland Award as the nation's top assistant coach.

    Inglis holds primary responsibility for running NU's home Windon Memorial Classic and for recruiting, where he has had tremendous success.

    In 2000, Inglis won the British Boys Amateur Championship, the largest boys event in Europe and equivalent to the U.S. Junior Championship. Inglis was instrumental in recruiting the 2012 British Boys champion -- Sheffield, England, native Matt Fitzpatrick -- who signed his NLI when he was the No. 11 ranked amateur in the world. Fitzpatrick would arrive in Evanston for the fall of 2013 as the No. 1 player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking after earning the Silver Medal at the 2013 Open Championship, finishing second in the English Men's Amateur and winning the 2013 U.S. Amateur Championship. He picked up two top-three finishes including one win for the Wildcats, then left NU following one quarter to turn professional after the 2014 U.S. Open.

    While at Tulsa, Inglis competed as an amateur for the victorious GB&I Walker Cup team in 2003. He was a member of the European Palmer Cup Teams in 2001 and 2003, winning with the squad in 2003. Inglis was named an assistant coach for the 2011 European Palmer Cup team, making him the first former Palmer Cup competitor to later serve as a coach in the collegiate Ryder Cup-style event. Inglis returned to his post in the event for the 2012 staging, as well, helping the squad make a huge final day comeback to claim the Cup.

    Inglis turned professional in 2004, competing on the European Tour, the Challenge Tour and several Mini Tours.

    Beginning in October of 2005 and continuing until he joined Northwestern, Inglis worked at Bear Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., where he served as a golf instructor, junior golf coach and tournament organizer. He coached and mentored multiple junior golfers with the goal of preparing them for college golf.
