November, 29, 2016, Marshall Director of Athletics Mike Hamrick announced that the interim tag has been removed and Brooke Burkhammer is now the permanent head coach of the women’s golf program.
Burkhammer has led the program since July after serving as a volunteer assistant last season, in addition to her duties as Marshall softball's Director of Operations.
July 19, 2016 Burkhammer was named the Interim Head Coach of the Women's Golf team. She first joined the Marshall women's golf staff as a volunteer coach in August 2015.
Burkhammer, from nearby Ona, W.Va., and the 2012 West Virginia Women’s Amateur champion, will be involved in all aspects of the program, from practice to tournaments.
Burkhammer played collegiately for Campbell University from 2011-15. During her four years at Campbell, Burkhammer earned nine top 10 finishes, including winning the 2012 Golfweek Program Challenge. For the victory, her 54-hole total set a school record (68-75-68—211) with two of those rounds a new collegiate career best and was named Big South Women’s Golfer of the Week.
Burkhammer was named to the All-Big South Conference Team in 2012-13 after concluding the season with a career-best five top 10 finishes, including finishing tied for eighth at the Big South Championship.
Burkhammer performed well in Big South Championships, finishing in the top 10 twice and helping the Camels win the conference title in 2012, 201 and 2015. Campbell advanced to the NCAA Regionals every year of Burkammer’s career and played in the NCAA Championships twice (2014 and ’15). As a senior, she finished the Big South Championship tied for fifth and was named to the All-Championship Team.
Burkhammer, 22, was born in Huntington and was named the West Virginia Golf Association junior girls’ Player of the Year four times while starring at Cabell Midland High School. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Sport Management from Campbell University.
