    Lucy Nunn Joins Women's Golf as Assistant Coach

    Former Kentucky assistant coach was award-winning student-athlete at Arkansas

    Lucy Nunn joined the University of Houston Women's Golf program as assistant coach in July 2014. In that role, she assists Head Coach Gerrod Chadwell in all aspects of the program, including scheduling, recruiting, team travel and player development.

    In her first season at Houston, Nunn helped lead the Cougars to its first NCAA Regional appearance in only the program's second year of existence. Under her guidance, Houston also captured its first team title at the UNF Collegiate with Megan Thothong becoming just the second player in program history to win an individual championship.

    In addition to her work duties, Nunn has continued her amateur playing career and remains one of the nation’s top players. In June 2015, she finished eighth at the WTGA Stroke Play Championship at Eagle’s Bluff Country Club, thanks to a Second-Round 70, and tied for 14th at the Texas Women’s Open at Rolling Hills Country Club in July 2015.

    With a 71 at The Heritage Golf Course at Westmoor in Westminster, Colo., Nunn also qualified for the 2015 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship at Portland Golf Club in Portland, Ore.

    PRE-HOUSTON
    Before joining Houston, Nunn spent the previous three seasons at Kentucky. In 2013-14, she helped lead the Wildcats to a pair of top-3 team finishes, including the championship at the "Mo"Morial Invitational in Bryan, Texas, in September 2013. That was the same tournament at which Houston Women's Golf made its debut.

    Four Wildcats collected six top-10 individual finishes during the season with Kentucky earning a bid to the NCAA Regionals for the fourth consecutive season.

    Nunn joined Kentucky for the 2011-12 season, and she made an immediate mark, helping lead the Wildcats to a school single-season low scoring average and the team championship at the Bettie Lou Evans Fall Invitational, the program's first title since 2009.

    In her second season, Kentucky bested the school record for low season scoring average again by more than three strokes and won the Old Waverly Bulldog Invitational, the first of three top-5 finishes that year.

    AS A PLAYER
    A native of Lawton, Okla., Nunn was the top prep prospect in the state when she elected to play for Arkansas. As a four-year letterwinner from 2005 to 2009, she competed in all of the Razorbacks' regular-season events as a sophomore and finished that season with the team's second-best scoring average.

    In her final collegiate season, Nunn led the team with a sparkling 73.64 average and earned three top-10 finishes, including medalist honors at the LSU/Cleveland Golf Classic.

    During her final two seasons, Nunn led the Razorbacks to consecutive runner-up team finishes at the SEC Championships and finished among the top-7 individual leaders each year.

    In the classroom, Nunn was a four-time member of the SEC Honor Roll and was named to the 2009 All-SEC Second Team. That same year, she was named to the SEC Community Service Team and was recognized as an All-America Honorable Mention by Golfweek. She also received the Brandon Burlsworth Award for Character and Integrity.

    After receiving her bachelor's degree in kinesiology from Arkansas in 2009, Nunn joined the LPGA Futures Tour. She finished in a tie for 15th at The International at Concord in 2010 and made nine cuts in 14 events that year.
