Here Fore You

This is Ryan Hybl's first season as the Assistant Coach of Georgia's Men's Golf team, but he is no stranger to this team. Hybl lettered at Georgia from 2001 to 2004. He was the captain of the team during his junior and senior seasons. He also dominated on the course as he named All-SEC twice as well as All-American twice. This week is the NCAA Championships and Coach Hybl found time to talk.


Dave McMahon -- This is the NCAA Championships, this is why you came back to Georgia to coach for, right?

Ryan Hybl -- Right. This is what we've been playing for. Our goals were to first win the SEC Championship which we did and then the NCAA Championship. No Georgia team has ever won both in the same year.

DM -- When you were a player here, the best your team did was 5th, how much do you want this as a goal for you?

RH -- That was my freshman year, we had our best chance then. We were preseason number one, we won 6 events that year. Us and Duke were the favorites, but Florida was hot and they ended up winning. Sometimes that's all it takes.

DM -- So it's whomever is hot this week?

RH -- A little. One thing that will benefit us is that we are playing on such a tough course and that we have played on it already this year and won.

DM -- What is your main responsiblity as the assistant coach?

RH -- I work with Coach Haack a lot. He always says I am working with him not for him. We work together. I am on the course a lot talking to the guys. I also do a lot of recruiting in the summer time.

DM -- Thank you for your time and good luck.

The NCAA Championships begin on Wednesday and are being played in Sunriver, Oregon.
