Lucy Nunn Joins Women's Golf as Assistant Coach
July 29, 2014
"Lucy will relate to all our young women well," said Chadwell, who begins his second season with the program in 2014-15. "From both a player and technical perspective, she will be a tremendous asset for our program. In recruiting, Lucy has instant credibility in the state of Texas, across the country and internationally. I am excited to welcome Lucy to Houston Women's Golf and look forward to the start of the fall season."
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.
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.
