Women’s golf coach Caroline O’Connor resigns

May 31, 2012, 1:30 a.m.

Caroline O’Connor has stepped down from the post of Stanford women’s golf head coach after 17 years at the job. O’Connor led the Cardinal to 15 appearances at the NCAA Championships in her 17 seasons, including the program’s best-ever finish, second place in 2000.

A former professional golf instructor, O’Connor came to the Farm and instantly tied a school best by leading Stanford to a fourth-place NCAA finish in the 1996-1997 season. She went on to help the Cardinal win a Pac-10 title in 1999 at the Stanford Golf Course and finish in the top five nationally three times.
