The only coach in program history, Patty Post begins her fourth season leading the University of Delaware women’s golf team in the 2014-15 season.
Prior to the 2011-12 season, women’s golf became the 23rd varsity sport at the University of Delaware and the first new sport at UD since women’s rowing was added to the fold prior to the 1998-99 season.
During the program’s inaugural season in 2011-12, Post helped lead the Blue Hens to top 10 finishes during eight of 10 tournaments on the year. Delaware finished among the top five in three tournaments, including a season-best fourth at The Spider at St. James Invitational.
During the 2012-13 campaign, the Blue Hens posted six top-10 finishes on the year, including a fifth place showing at the Colonial Athletic Association Championships.
Last year Delaware enjoyed an outstanding season, as the Blue Hens finished among the top five in all but one tournament. UD claimed team titles at the Tignanelli Towson Invitational, Rutgers Invitational and Delaware Invitational, and capped its year by tying for second place at the CAA Championships.
Amanda Terzian was the first all-conference selection in program history as she was named second team All-CAA after leading UD with a 76.46 average round and placing fourth at the league championships.
Post (nee Frohna) joined Georgetown University as the women’s golf head coach in 2006 and guided a young program that has become one of the best in the BIG EAST Conference and in the region.
In her third year at the helm, during the 2008-09 season, the Hoyas posted eight top-10 finishes in 10 tournaments, including three top-five finishes in the Spring. Those finishes were highlighted by a team third place finish at the Big East Championships and a win at the NIU Snowbird Intercollegiate, the third team win in program history. She was named LPGA Northeast Section Coach of the Year 2009.
Two of her golfers - Chelsea Curtis and Carly Hunt - earned All-BIG EAST honors for the second-straight season. Six of the seven members of the women’s golf team were selected to the All-BIG EAST Academic Team and Hunt, Robyn English and Joan Dulieu were named to the National Golf Coaches Association Scholar All-American list. Georgetown also served as the team host for the 2009 NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Championship at Caves Valley Golf Course in Owings Mills, Md.
In her second season, the Blue and Gray posted eight top-10 finishes and finished in fifth place at the BIG EAST Championship. Four members of the team - Christine Curley, English, Hunt and Madeline Nguyen - were named to the National Golf Coaches Association Scholar All-American list.
Post guided the Hoyas to a fourth place finish at the 2007 BIG EAST Championship and to four top-five finishes and four top-10 finishes during her first season at the helm of the program.
In addition to her leadership of the team on the links, Post herself enjoyed a solid season of play. She played in the LPGA’s Sybase Classic in May 2008, qualified for the LPGA Championship in June, 2010 and capped off her year by playing in the 40th PGA Professional National Championship.
Post came to Georgetown after spending the previous six years as a teaching professional and a player. She joined the Hoyas after serving as the Assistant Golf Professional at Lakewood Country Club in Rockville, Md. for two years (2004-05). At Lakewood, Post ran weekly tournaments, provided lessons, conducted clinics and assisted in the merchandising for the golf shop.
Prior to that, she spent two years (2003-04) at Admiral’s Cove Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla. and was the Teaching Professional at Fair Oaks Golf Park in Fairfax, Va. from 2001-05.
During that time, Post was also pursuing a professional playing career. From 2003-05, Post played regularly on the Futures Golf Tour, earning exempt status on the tour that is known as the “Gateway to the LPGA.” She had two top-20 finishes in events during the 2003 and 2004 seasons. Her playing resume also includes Runner-up finishes in the Maryland Women’s Open from 2003-05, named Middle Atlantic PGA Women’s Player of the Year in 2002, 2005, 2006,and 2007, named LPGA Northeast Section Teaching and Club Professional Player of the Year in 2007, and was only the second female to qualify for the PGA National Club Professional Championship.
A 1999 kinesiology and zoology graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Post enjoyed a stellar amateur career. She was the Wisconsin Amateur Champion in 1998 and was named the most valuable player on the Wisconsin team in 1997 and 1999. Post won the 1999 Notre Dame Invitational and also earned CoSIDA Academic All-American honors during her career.
Post and her husband, Brendon, himself an accomplished golfer who served as Patty’s assistant coach at Georgetown and now at Delaware, have two daughters, Miranda (4), and Kiera (3), and a son, Landon (1).Updated 7/30/14
