COLUMBUS, Ohio — Lisa Strom, Ohio State’s assistant women’s golf coach and veteran of more than 50 career LPGA Tour events (2003; 2007-10), recently joined an elite group of women by earning her Class A card as an LPGA Teaching & Club Professional. Not only is Ohio State’s Women’s Golf program led by two former LPGA Tour players, now the coaches are in even more unique company as a staff with two LPGA T&CP Class A members. Head coach Therese Hession has held her status since 1998 following several years of coaching and her LPGA Tour playing days
Strom becomes the newest member of an organization `”dedicated to the advancement of golf through teaching, managing golf facilities and coaching” which was established in 1959.

The LPGA has earned a reputation as the leader in research-based golf education. It also provides its members with sectional, regional and national programs that further the LPGA’s commitment to offering state-of-the-art education in golf teaching methods and techniques. Strom’s Class A membership opens the door for seminars and conferences offered by the LPGA as well as permitting her to conduct golf lessons with prospect age females per NCAA compliance regulations.
“Therese has encouraged me from Day one to pursue my Class A card through the LPGA T&CP, and I appreciate the support from The Ohio State University Athletics Department in making it a reality,” Strom said. “This membership gives us an opportunity to be among the elite instructors in the world and our network of resources is immeasurable.”
Since returning to Columbus in 2011 following a 10-year professional playing career, Strom has assisted her alma mater to eight tournament titles, including back-to-back Big Ten Championships the past two seasons.
