Barry's Stobs Picked to Helm One of Three U.S. National Teams

Barry’s Jimmy Stobs, along with Conrad Ray of Stanford and Brian White of Lamar, has been selected by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) as one of its 2008 international team coaches. Stobs will coach in the Fuji Xerox USA vs. Japan Collegiate Golf Championship, while Ray will lead the United States against Europe in the Palmer Cup presented by Monster at Glasgow Golf Club Gailes Links and White in the Toyota World Junior Golf Team Championship.

Stobs is in his sixth season at the helm of the Buccaneer men’s golf program. Last season, Stobs was named Eaton Golf Pride National Coach of the Year after leading the Buccaneers to an unprecedented 121-35-5 tournament record and the 2007 NCAA Division II national title, the first in program history. The Buccaneers finished in the top-10 in all 12 of their tournaments with nine top-five finishes, five second-place finishes and one tournament win at the national championship.
