Bratton named head women's coach at OK State
Saturday, June 11, 2011
Alan Bratton has been named head women’s golf coach at Oklahoma State after Annie Young announced her resignation earlier this month. Bratton spent the past seven years as an associate head coach for OSU's men’s and women’s programs.
Bratton’s appointment is pending approval from Oklahoma State’s Board of Regents.
“I’m excited about the chance to head up the women’s program,” Bratton said. “I love coaching and I love Oklahoma State. I’m humbled that OSU thinks enough of me to offer me the job. I’m excited to hit the road and start recruiting."
Bratton was an All-American for the Cowboys, and he played professionally from 1995 to 2000. He regained his amateur status in 2006 and won the Oklahoma State Amateur later that year. Before returning to coach at Oklahoma State, Bratton also spent three years as a player-development manager for Ping. He caddied for Peter Uihlein during his U.S. Amateur win in 2010.
Bratton has helped lead the Oklahoma State men to six conference titles and five top-5 finishes in the NCAA Championship in his tenure. Also during that time, the women’s team produced its first NCAA women’s champion last year in Caroline Hedwall.
