Bill Lindmark to Retire After Twenty-Plus Seasons with Phoenix Golf
GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – After spending more than 20 years associated with the program as both a player and a coach, Bill Lindmark announced on Thursday his retirement from his position as Green Bay’s head men’s golf coach, effective June 30.
“We want to thank Bill for leading our program and our young men for over twenty seasons,” said Director of Athletics Mary Ellen Gillespie. “This was not an easy decision for Bill, but we support him and wish him the very best in his new endeavor. He will always be a member of the Phoenix family.”
Lindmark served as the head coach of the men’s golf program for 19 total years, including from 1992-2002 and from 2007-14. A former Phoenix player and UW-Green Bay graduate, Lindmark was also an assistant coach from 1990-91.
“I'm proud of more than 20 years of some fantastic golf, excellent grades, and the successes of many of the graduates of the golf team,” said Lindmark. “I look forward to cheering on the future success of Green Bay men’s golf as a strong supporter of the program and University.”
The Horizon League Coach of the Year in 2001, Lindmark led the Phoenix to second-place finishes at the conference championships on three occasions (2001, 2010, 2012). Under his guidance, Shaun Rezachek became the first and only two-time medalist in league history (1998, 2001), andwon the league title in 2012.
Green Bay will welcome back 11 golfers for the 2014-15 season, including four players that competed at the 2014 Horizon League Championship.
A national search for a replacement will begin immediately.
