Scott Morter, a 1983 Cornerstone University graduate, has been named head coach of the Golden Eagles' women's golf team for the 2011 season. Morter, who spent two seasons as assistant coach, is an associate professor for Business/Finance at the University.
"We are very fortunate to have someone with Scott's ability and experience to lead our women's golf program," CU athletic director Dave Grube said. "He knows what it takes to build a program and he'll work hard to recruit the type of athlete that will be successful on and off the course."
Morter began playing golf when he was seven, and was a competitive junior golfer. As an adult he spent six years working at Warwick Hills Country Club, the home of the PGA's Buick Open.
"I am excited about building a team that fosters dynamic growth in all areas of life," Morter said. "My goal for each of the women on our team is to teach them and lead them to compete at an advanced level of golf, to succeed academically by graduating in their specific discipline, and to form strong and lasting emotional and spiritual relationships."
"Scott is the right person for the job," Grube said. "He has a passion to teach the game and help players improve. I'm certain that he'll be very successful in developing championship teams at Cornerstone University."
Morter is chairman of the Faculty Senate at Cornerstone, and in 2007 was named Professor of the Year by the student body. He has an M.B.A. from Grand Valley State University and is working towards his Doctorate in Business Administration from Anderson University.
