Golf Hall of Fame to Honor Auburn Coach

Auburn, Ala.--Kim Evans, head coach of the Auburn women's golf team, will be inducted into the National Collegiate Coaches Association Hall of Fame at ceremonies in New Orleans on Jan. 13th.

A four-year letterwinner as an Auburn player, Evans has led the Tigers to five SEC championships and 29 tournament titles and is in her 14th season as Auburn's head coach. Her teams have six Top 10 finishes at the NCAA Championships.

A native of Decatur, Ala., and a 1991 Auburn graduate, Evans will be inducted into the NGCA Hall of Fame at ceremonies at the Royal Sonesta Hotel along with former Arizona State golfer Amy Fruhwirth.

"The individuals are the best part of coaching," Evans says. "Of course, everybody likes to win, but when you are dealing with individuals, and they accomplish their goals, we all come together and accomplish our team goals. When you have quality student-athletes and mix them with the game of golf, I can't see a better combination."

Nine different golfers have been named All-Americans a total of 20 times under Evans, who was the 2002 National Coach of the Year as the Tigers posted a 162-7-3 and finished as the NCAA runnerup. She is a three-time SEC Coach of the Year. Her golfers have won All-SEC honors 40 times in the past 13 seasons.

The Auburn women's team, which is moving into to its new home at the Auburn University Club, returns to competition Feb. 25-27 in Tucson, Arizona at the Wildcat Invitational.
