Lucy Nunn enters her third year as an assistant coach with the University of Kentucky women's golf team after helping the team set new standards for the program in her first two seasons.
The Wildcats broke new ground in Nunn's first year on board, setting the school record for low scoring average at 304.7 while winning their first tournament since 2009, an 8-stroke victory at the Bettie Lou Evans Fall Invitational.
In her second season, Kentucky bested the school record for low scoring average that was set in 2011-12 by more than three strokes. The team also won its first tournament of the 2012-13 campaign, the Old Waverly Bulldog Invitational, on the way to three top-five finishes for the season.
A graduate of Arkansas in 2009, Nunn excelled on and off the golf course in Fayetteville, Ark., en route to earning her degree in kinesiology and receiving numerous honors.
Before joining the Arkansas women's golf team, Nunn was the top prospect coming out of the state of Oklahoma. The native of Lawton, Okla., competed in all of Arkansas' regular season events as a sophomore, and finished the year with the second best stroke average on the team and the 21st best average in the SEC. As a junior at Arkansas, 31 of Nunn's 36 rounds played were counted toward the team total. In her senior season, Nunn led the Razorbacks with an exceptional scoring average of 73.64, earning three top-10 finishes, including a first-place finish at the LSU/Cleveland Golf Classic.
After finishing the SEC Championship in ninth place during Nunn's sophomore year, the Razorbacks surged toward the top of the conference during her junior and senior years, finishing in second place both years. Arkansas' back-to-back second-place finishes at the SEC Championship were program bests, with Nunn playing an instrumental part by finishing in seventh place as a junior and sixth place as a senior.
Nunn was a four-time member of the SEC honor roll and in 2009 was named to the All-SEC Second Team and SEC Community Service Team. Golfweek added Nunn as an All-American honorable mention and she also received the Brandon Burlsworth Award for Character and Integrity from Arkansas in 2009.
Following a successful collegiate career at Arkansas, Nunn joined the LPGA Futures Tour in May 2009. Her best finish was a tie for 15th place at The International at Concord held in Concord, N.H., in 2010. Nunn also made nine cuts out of the 14 events she played in 2010.
Nunn is the daughter of Ron and Cindy Nunn and has an older sister, Andrea.
