Georgia College golf head coach Jimmy Wilson announced the return of former Bobcats player Patrick Garrett on Tuesday to the program as an assistant coach.
Garrett played for the Bobcats from 2008 to 2013 and was a two-time All-American.
“I am very excited to be back. Getting to play my college golf here was one of the greatest experiences of my life, and I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this great program once again,” Garrett said in a release. “I’ve learned so much from Jimmy over the years, and to be able to come back and continue to learn from such a successful and experienced head coach will be another great learning experience for me. I can’t wait to get started.”
Garrett won two tournaments at Georgia College and finished in the top 10 five other times. He played professionally in 2014 and this year on the Hopkins Tour and the SwingThought.com Tour.
He worked in a few events for the Bobcats as a volunteer assistant in 2014-15.
“We are very pleased to have Patrick back in the fold,” Wilson said. “The leadership Patrick displayed both on the course and in the classroom while playing here will assist him in helping our younger golfers adapt and mature more quickly. He was an asset while playing for us and now those same attributes will be used to help us climb back up the rankings.
