Lea Garner is entering her first season as an assistant coach for the men's and women's golf teams.
After graduating from Brigham Young University in 2016, Garner went pro in February 2017 and became a member of the Symetra Tour. Her most recent achievement was winning the first-ever Utah Women's Open last month after sinking a 20-foot putt on the final hole to win by one stroke.
While at BYU, Garner earned All-WCC First Team honors for four years and helped the Cougars win the conference title. During her senior season, she tied for second in the WCC tournament and went on to place fourth at the NCAA Regional in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Before BYU Lea played for her dad on the Bonneville High School (Ogden, Utah) girl's golf team. Lea finished her high-school campaign in 2012 as the number one ranked high school player in the state of Utah. With her help, the Lakers won the 4A state tournament in 2011 and 2012.
