A native of Ashland, Oregon, Tredway joins the Bama staff following a two-year stint as a professional golfer on several circuits including the ANZ/Australasian and the North Atlantic tours.
"I'm very excited to be adding a quality individual like Andrew to our staff," said Palmer. "He comes from an extremely solid college program. Andrew has a wealth of professional and amateur playing experience that will be beneficial to our team. One of his biggest assets is his commitment and desire to coach."
Tredway, a 2000 graduate from the University of Oregon with a bachelor's degree in anthropology, was a member of two UO Duck squads that participated in NCAA Championship play. An honorable mention All-Pac 10 performer in 1999, Tredway lettered four seasons for the Ducks and led the team in scoring average for a year.
As an amateur linkster, Tredway captured the 1994 Oregon Juniors title and was a semifinalist at the 1999 Oregon Amateur. He earned medalist honors at the qualifying events for the 1994 US Junior Amateur, the 1998 US Public Links and the 1999 US Amateur.
Tredway, who owns five career pro titles, was named the 2000 North Atlantic Tour Rookie of the Year. He twice missed appearing in a PGA Tour Event after losing in a qualifying playoff and in his only Buy.Com tour event he posted a Top 20 (T-17th) showing. He is also the current holder of five course records.
