The Georgia Tech Golf machine has been rolling. The Yellow Jackets have reached match play of the NCAA Championship twice, won two ACC Championships, and have reached as high as No. 4 in the Golfstat National Golf Rankings the past two seasons. A big reason for that is the contributions that Brennan Webb has made to the golf program, and he was rewarded for that by being promoted to associate head coach .

In a press release on ramblinwreck.com, Jackets head coach Bruce Heppler praises Webb for being instrumental in helping to recruit the incoming freshman class that includes four freshman golfers who rank in the top 50 juniors.
With 19 years of being in charge of Yellow Jackets golf, Bruce Heppler understands the importance of a good associate coach.
In his statement announcing Webb’s promotion, Heppler spoke to the importance of having a solid associate coach, and how much Webb has meant to the program since coming to The Flats:
“In a sport where you have only two coaches, it’s imperative that you have someone who can assist in all aspects of the program, which includes fund-raising, recruiting, player development and managing the team day-to-day. His skill set from day one was exceptional in all these areas, which has led him to have a significant impact on this program and its success. We certainly realize that opportunities are going to come his way, and this is our way of demonstrating to him our appreciation for what he brings each day, and that he plays a critical role in our success. This will ensure continuity in our recruiting and the development of our current players.”
Brennan Webb came to The Flats after being part of the University of South Florida golf program. The Bulls posted seven top 10 finishes and three top 5 finishes during the 2011-12 season.
While at South Florida, Webb was able to sign two of the top five players in the state of Florida with his first recruiting class to the program, and help raise USF’s ranking from 191st to 51st in the preseason.
Webb was humbled by the promotion and showed his gratitude to the administration and coach Heppler:
“I want to thank Mike Bobinski, Theresa Wenzel and, most importantly, Bruce Heppler for my promotion to associate head coach. I am very honored to be involved with what I believe is the best golf program in the country. The last two seasons working with and learning from Coach Heppler has been an invaluable experience, and I look forward to many more. Getting to be around the finest student athletes in the country, day in a day out ,is the most rewarding experience a coach can hope for. I feel beyond fortunate that I get to continue to do that at Georgia Tech for the foreseeable future.”
Webb, who is a native of Ontario, Canada, represented Canada in the World Junior Championships. He played collegiately at East Tennessee St., where he helped that golf team reach No.1 in the rankings and finish third in the National Championship in his junior year.
He also represented Canada in multiple international amateur tournaments that include appearances at the U.S., British, Canadian, and Western amateur Championships.
Brennan Webb also has played in a number of professional golf circuits in 11 different countries. Webb was a fully exempt member of the PGA Web.com tour in 2009 and notched three top 25 finishes to his credit.
In 2010 he competed in the Zurich Classic on the PGA Tour and he has also reached the second stage of PGA qualifying school 8 times in nine tries.
Webb’s pro wins include a 2010 victory at the Coors Light Open in Fort Myers, FL. and wins on the Hooters tour in Canada.
