ROCHESTER, Mich. -- Head men's golf coach Nick Pumford has been recognized by Golf Digest as one of the leading golf instructors in the country and just one of five coaches in the country to receive this honor.
"It's an honor to be considered one of the best teachers in our state," Pumford said. "Fortunately the athletic department and Oakland University afford me the opportunity to work with eight awesome guys and I couldn't be more proud of them. We are constantly working to get better at our game and I'm excited for what the future holds for the men's golf program."
Last summer Golf Digest distributed ballots to more than 1,000 instructors to identify the top teaching talent both nationally and in every state. By a vote of Pumford's peers, he has been recognized as Golf Digest's Best Teachers by State for 2017-18.
The official teacher rankings will be published in the November 2017 issue of Golf Digest, and are on newsstands as of October 31.
