Loras College Director of Athletics Bob Quinn announced Monday the hiring of Jim Davison as the new head coach of the men's and women's golf teams. Davison replaces Denise Udelhofen, who was recently promoted to Associate Director of Athletics and Senior Women's Administrator. Udelhofen will remain an associate coach with the teams this fall to help with Davison's transition.

"I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity and I'm very thankful to Denise and (Director of Athletics) Bob Quinn," Davison said Monday.

"Denise has done a tremendous job in building these golf programs, and I can only hope to build on the foundation that she has set," Davison continued. 

Davison comes to Loras after a number of positions as a club professional around the country. He has been a member of the Professional Golf Association of America since 1994. Davison has spent time at Sunnyside Country Club in Waterloo, Iowa, Inverness Golf Club in Palatine, Illinois, Desert Highlands Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, and most recently he was the Director of Golf at Forest Highlands Golf Club in Flagstaff, Arizona. In the spring of 2009, Davison was the head boy's golf coach at Cuba City High School in Cuba City, Wisconsin.

The Loras College golf teams begin competition this September. The women open at the Central College Invitational and the men host their fall invitational on September 8.
