Former Lake Superior State University men's golf student-athlete Andrew McKenney returned to his alma mater in the fall of 2016 and is presently in his third year as the head coach of the Laker men's and women's golf teams.
The Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, native grew up playing golf at the Sault Ste. Marie Golf Club where he quickly established himself as a competitive golfer. His teenage years were spent traveling to tournaments in Ontario, Michigan and Ohio.
McKenney won the Sault Country Club Junior Club Championship three years in a row (2008, 2009, 2010), before becoming the youngest individual to ever win the men's club championship in 2012.
In 2010, McKenney joined the golf team at LSSU, representing Laker golf for four years. His collegiate career was highlighted in 2013, when he was selected to represent LSSU on an international trip to Scotland, hosted through USA Athletes International. He joined 11 of the top players in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference on the prestigious trip competing against a Scottish team at the Kittocks Championship Course in St. Andrew's, Scotland.
McKenney's background in these fields should prove to be a strong asset to the continued improvement of Laker golf. He brings a passion for player development, along with a knowledge of technical aspects of the golf swing.
With over 10 years professional experience in the golf industry, McKenney is excited to continue to expand the legacy of Laker golf along with his passion for golf, enthusiasm and dedication to excellence.
McKenney earned his master's degree from the University of Guelph in 2016.
