Posted on Greg Robertson’s office door are goal sheets for each of his Kent State players. Each has defined her own personal goals, then mapped out a practice plan for how she will achieve them.

Robertson is new to Kent State after being named just the second head coach in program history last summer. This coaching technique, however, is a holdover from Purdue, where Roberston earned his coaching stripes under Hall of Famer Devon Brouse.

“What was nice at Purdue was that Coach Brouse really kind of let me become my own coach and really gave me a lot ...

“College in general is different than what I expected,” said Feng, who feels ...

Katie Brenny, the former Minnesota women's coach who sued the school alleging that it fired her after learning that she is a lesbian, reportedly was awarded a maximum $359,000 by a Minneapolis judge.

“I pulled over and I burst into tears,” she told Golfweek on March 20 in her first media interview. “So vindicating.”

Nearly three years after Brenny brought a lawsuit alleging the school had fired her as women’s golf coach after learning she is a lesbian, she was awarded a maximum of $359,000 ...
