Coach

John Sjoberg (Head Coach)

John Sjoberg was named Emory University’s head golf coach coach following the conclusion of the 2011 season.  He took over for Mike Phillips who announced his retirement after 28 years as the head man of the Eagles’ program.

Even though the team’ 2019-20 season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic that shut down all NCAA Sports in mid-March, Sjoberg saw his squad record a number of impressive accomplishments.  The Eagles registered top-five finishes in all five of their tournaments including first-place honors during at the DIII Fall Preview (18-team field) and the O’Briant-Jensen Memorial (22-team field). Emory launched its spring schedule with a third-place finish out of 18 teams at the Savannah Invitational, carding a 54-hole score of 19-under 845, the program’s second-best ever score for a three-round tourney.  Coming off that standout performance, the Eagles were then set to defend their UAA title in Palm Coast, Florida, before being called home for the year. Emory established a school season scoring record averaging 288.8 strokes over 14 rounds of competition, with individual players logging a total of 33 rounds of par or better. Sjoberg, who completed his ninth campaign at the helm in ’19-20, mentored four players to PING All-America accloades, highlighted by Logan Ryan and Max Schwarz, both of whom landed second-team honors.  Senior Matt Organisak was tabbed to the third team while junior Eric Yiu garnered honorable-mention kudos. Sjoberg was recognized for his team’s fine year with his selection as one of five NCAA Division III finalists for the Dave Williams Award presented by Golf Pride Grips, which recognizes the national coach of the year. It represented the fourth straight year that he reached finalist status for that honor.
