ASSISTANT MEN'S GOLF COACH, SCOTT GUMP
Longtime PGA TOUR veteran Scott Gump completed his fifth season as the assistant coach for the University of Notre Dame men's golf program in 2016-17.
Along with head coach Jim Kubinski, Gump helped oversee Notre Dame's transition into the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) in 2013-14. The Irish posted a head-to-head record of 66-63-2 (.508) during their first ACC season, logging a 295.06 stroke average over 33 team rounds.
