Judi Pavon Head Golf Coach
The Volunteer golf program has been a force in the Southeastern Conference and on the national level under the guidance of Judi Pavon. During her career at Rocky Top, the 2006 SEC Coach of the Year has led the Big Orange to 11 NCAA Championship appearances, including four straight berths from 2009-12, and 17 consecutive regional appearances. The Helena, Mont., native holds the Rocky Top coaching records for head-to-head wins (1,931) and tournament titles (20).
Pavon's charges also have enjoyed individual success both on the golf course and in the classroom. Under Pavon, Vols have been named All-Americans 25 times, garnered All-SEC status on 39 occasions and flourished in the classroom, bringing home 36 WGCA Academic All-America citations. Pavon put three on the WGCA All-Academic list in 2017. The success of the program on both the athletic and academic levels should come as no surprise, as Pavon has an extensive golf background that includes a professional career spanning from 1989-94 with two years on the LPGA Tour.
