Tatman to Join Pioneers in 2018-19

June 7, 2018

DENVER - The University of Denver women's golf head coach Lindsay Kuhle announced the hiring of Mikayla Tatman on Thursday. The former Colorado State Ram will join the staff this month for the upcoming 2018-19 season, getting started on Monday.

Tatman, a Colorado native, comes to DU after teaching and coaching for ExperienceGolf at CommonGround Golf Course in Aurora, Colo. Just before that she completed internships with both the Colorado Golf Association and the Colorado Section of the PGA.

"I am thrilled to announce the hiring of our new assistant coach Mikayla Tatman," Kuhle said. "She fits right in to our culture and philosophies we have within our Pioneer golf family.

"Mikayla played college golf at CSU and has a passion and love for the game of golf. Not only playing, but coaching, teaching, and promoting golf. She is a perfect fit for our program because she is an extremely hard worker, driven, passionate, and competitive, loves Colorado and more specifically Denver.

"Mikayla will be extremely successful as a coach and will help with player development and recruiting," Kuhle added. "Her confidence and personality is a perfect fit for this program and she is always positive and uplifting. With her experience at Metro State, with the Colorado Golf Alliance, going through the LPGA teaching certification, and her experience teaching and developing golfers the past few years, I am confident she will make an immediate impact on our program."

Prior to her work as a Teaching Professional, Tatman had a successful athletic and academic career at Colorado State University. While consistently being a leader in the Ram's line up, she was very successful in the classroom, being a two-time WGCA Academic All-American selection, a four-time Mountain West Conference All-Scholar member, and a Dean's List selection on multiple occasions. During her time at CSU, she also qualified for the final USGA Women's Public Links Championship in 2014. Tatman graduated in the spring of 2016 with a degree in health and human sciences.


 

 

Before her career as a Ram, she had a successful junior golf career right in Colorado. Mikayla played for Skyline High School and led her team to dozens of wins, including the 2009 CHSAA State Championship. Along with team wins, she added numerous individual titles, both at the conference and regional level.

Tatman is currently an LPGA member and in the Teaching & Coaching Education program as an apprentice. Recently, she earned her Level 1 Certification with Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), which focuses on bettering player performance based on the understanding of how the body functions during the golf swing.
