Scott Limbaugh Selected as Assistant Coach Representative to the GCAA National Advisory Board
Scott Limbaugh of Alabama was selected by his fellow assistant coaches from across the country to serve as the assistant coach representative to the GCAA’s National Advisory Board.
“It is a tremendous honor to be selected by my peers as the assistant coach representative to the GCAA,” said Limbaugh. “I am excited to have the chance to represent fellow assistant coaches on the advisory board. This is a special opportunity to listen and learn from outstanding head coaches from across the country.”
Limbaugh is in his fifth season as the Crimson Tide’s assistant golf coach after an extremely successful tenure as the head coach at Huntingdon College from 2005-07. He brings a wealth of experience as both a coach and a former collegiate golfer. He is also the Director of the Alabama Golf Academy and the Tide’s recruiting coordinator.
Limbaugh has teamed with Alabama Head Coach Jay Seawell to produce one of the most successful periods in the program’s history. The Tide has qualified for the NCAA Tournament each year since he arrived and the NCAA Championships in three of those years. Limbaugh has helped tutor five PING All-America honorees since 2008, including two first-team selections — Michael Thompson and Bud Cauley. Both Thompson and Cauley were named to Palmer Cup teams and Cauley became just the second Tide player selected to the Walker Cup in 2009. His recruiting prowess has also been impressive, helping coordinate and land three top-10 recruiting classes according to Golfweek. The 2010 class, which included Cory Whitsett and Bobby Wyatt, was a consensus top-two class while Justin Thomas was a top-five player nationally in 2011.
Limbaugh is also the director of the Crimson Tide Open, which is Alabama’s annual golf fundraiser for boosters and alumni.
Limbaugh married the former Kate Mastin on July 18, 2009. The couple welcomed their first child, Malley, in February.
