St. John's Alumna Lois Kim Named Women's Golf Head Coach at LIU Brooklyn|
Oct. 17, 2017
QUEENS, N.Y. - LIU Brooklyn announced that former St. John’s golfer Lois Kim has taken the position as the new head coach of the Blackbird women’s golf program.
"I am excited to take on this new role as the head coach for the women's golf team at Long Island University," Kim said. This is an amazing opportunity to become a part of the LIU athletics family and to work with such talented athletes."
Kim, a Queens’s native, saw her average improve over her four years of play (from an 81.83 as freshman to 78.66 as a senior). During her freshman campaign, the Queens native shot a one-under 70 at the 2007 Treasure Coast Classic, which still remains in the top-3 for lowest scores in program history.
“I hope to be able to guide and mentor these young women, just the same as Coach Ambry Bishop did when I played for St. John's University," Kim said. "I still have some butterflies fluttering around, but I am ready and confident to take on this new role. I want to thank Coach Ambry Bishop because I would not be here without her guidance and support."
Kim was a member of the St. John’s women’s golf team from 2006-10 where she excelled both on the course and academically. She appeared multiple times on the BIG EAST Academic All-Star team, as well as, the Elizabeth Lapchick Award, which celebrates academic progression over student-athletes four years at St. John’s.
“I am really excited for Lois and this opportunity,” Bishop said. “She has built up her teaching career in this area and had been looking to get into college coaching.”
Following Kim’s graduation from St. John’s she has continued to master her game. She spent four years (2011-15) on the National Women’s Golf Association (NWGA) Tour, formerly known as the SunCoast Ladies Pro Golf Tour, and has worked as a teaching professional at the Harbor Links Golf Course in Port Washington N.Y. since 2010.
