SCOTT LIMBAUGH Vanderbilt Men's Head Golf Coach
In his sixth year at Vanderbilt, Scott Limbaugh has taken the program from the 75th ranked team in the country to #1 ranked team in the country by all 3 college golf polls. Since his arrival prior to the 2012 campaign, Limbaugh has quickly established himself as one of the nation's preeminent coaches. He has mentored three first-team All-Americans, four Palmer Cup selections, a Walker Cup member and 10 total All-America selections, all while also garnering five consecutive NCAA Regional bids and four consecutive NCAA Championship appearances from 2014-17 for the first time in program history. Under Limbaugh, Vanderbilt has won 12 team tournaments -- the most by a head coach in Vanderbilt golf history -- and garnered 10 individual tournament winners. The coach has also led Vanderbilt to a first-place (2017), second-place (2015) and fourth-place (2016) finish in the stroke play portion of the NCAA Championship, Elite Eight appearances in 2015 and 2016, and a Final Four appearance in the 2017 NCAA Championship. He has also had two of his players participate in a PGA Tour event: Hunter Stewart in 2014 at the RBC Heritage and Matthias Schwab at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2017.
