NORMAN, Okla.-- For the second-consecutive year, Northwestern associate head coach David Inglis has been named one of three finalists for the Jan Strickland Award presented by TaylorMade-adidas Golf as selected by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).
The Strickland Award is presented to the NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA or NJCAA assistant coach that, among other things, has excelled in working with their student-athletes both on the course and in the classroom.
The three finalists are Inglis, Chris Hill of Houston and Blake Smart of Oklahoma.
Inglis is in his fourth year with head coach Pat Goss and the NU program after helping the Wildcats to the NCAA National Championships in 2011 and NCAA Regionals in 2012-13. Northwestern senior Jack Perry (Santa Barbara, Calif./Santa Barbara) is a finalist for the GCAA Byron Nelson Award, which honors similar on-course, in-classroom and community service excellence as the Jan Strickland Award.
Inglis handles the day-to-day operations and recruiting for the Wildcats men's golf program. He also serves as the tournament director of the Windon Memorial Classic and has been an instructor at the Wildcat Golf Academy. Northwestern has won seven tournaments during his tenure and have been honored as a GCAA Academic Team Award recipient three times. An assistant coach for the 2011 and 2012 European Palmer Cup Teams, he continues to serve on the European Palmer Cup selection committee.
The Strickland Award recipient will have the opportunity to further his professional development by receiving an invitation to the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Kingdom in Carlsbad, Calif.
TaylorMade-adidas Golf has sponsored the Strickland Award since its inception in 2003.
