Philip Rowe, former All-American at Stanford, named Assistant Coach
STANFORD, Calif. - Knowles Family Director of Golf Conrad Ray has appointed former Stanford standout Philip Rowe to the position of men's assistant golf coach.
A three-year letterwinner at Stanford from 2000-02, Rowe earned Golf All-America honors as a senior after recording seven top-10 finishes, highlighted by a first place showing at the U.S. Intercollegiate and a second place finish at the Pac-10 championships.
Rowe, who graduated from Stanford in 2002 with a bachelor of arts degree in psychology, was also a two-time All-American Scholar Athlete honoree by The Golf Coaches Association of America.
A native of Cornwall, England, Rowe has played professionally on various world tours since 2002. Since 2005, Rowe has made his mark on the Professional Circuit in France, winning three tournaments and finishing in the Order of Merit's top-10 each year.
He also was a member of Great Britain & Ireland's Walker Cup team in 1999, winning all three of his matches in helping GB&I to a victory over the United States. He also participated in the 2000 British Open held at St. Andrews.
"We are very excited to have Phillip return to The Farm as an assistant coach," said Ray. "His vast array of amateur and professional golf experience will be a tremendous asset to our program. He was able to leave his mark on Stanford Golf as a player and I am sure he will even have more impact as a coach."
