Patrick Daugherty is in his second year as the head coach of the men’s and women’s golf teams at Willamette University in 2014-15. Daugherty previously served as the assistant men’s and women’s golf coach at Willamette for three seasons. He will assume his new responsibilities immediately.
As an assistant coach for the Bearcats, Daugherty traveled to most of the tournaments for the men’s and women’s teams. When both teams were competing on the same day at different sites, he would travel with one team and former Head Coach Noah Horstman would travel with the other. As a result, Daugherty received experience leading one team by himself at two or three tournaments each year.
Daugherty attended Western Oregon University and graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Psychology and a minor in Sociology.
He has been an employee at several golf courses in Oregon. He has worked in the golf shop at Salem Golf Club since August of 2012. Previously, he gained experience at the Willow Lake Golf Center, the OGA Golf Course and Illahe Hills Country Club. He worked in customer services at Willow Lake, was the director of player services and assistant golf professional at the OGA, and served as the outside service director and golf shop assistant at Illahe Hills.
Willamette competes in NCAA Division III and is a member of the Northwest Conference. In 2012-13, the Bearcat women’s team tied for third place in the overall NWC standings, while the men’s team finished in sixth place.
