Men's Golf Inks Two to National Letters of Intent

Andrew Rudy and Austin Rendell will join the Hoyas in the fall of 2013.

Tommy Hunter began working at Georgetown in 1979 as the Director of Intramural Sports and Special Programs. In 1984 he took over the Men's Golf program and currently serves as Head Men's Golf Coach and Director of Special Projects assisting the athletic development team raising funds for Georgetown Athletics. Initiating the formation of the "19th Hole Club" (Men's Golf Alumni) and "THE MAJOR" (Georgetown's alumni golf event) have been his main contributions.

Hunter has led the Hoyas to three NCAA post season tournaments. In 1997, the team made its first appearance in the NCAA East Regional which was held at The Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, Va. and the famous Upper Cascades Course. The Hoyas second trip to the NCAA East Regional was in 2004 held at The Yale Golf Course in New Haven, Conn. Most recently, the Hoyas competed in the 2010 NCAA Southwest Central in Bryan, Texas on The Traditions Course at Texas A&M.

Under Hunter's direction Georgetown has captured two Big East Conference Championships - 1998 (The TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm, Potomac, Md.) and 2010 (The Copperhead Course at The Innisbrook Resort, Tampa, FLA). The Hoyas have finished in the top five of the Big East Championship Tournament 13 times since 1990 - first-place twice, second five times, third four times, and fourth two separate times. Outside of conference competition, the Hoyas have placed first in 15 Division I Intercollegiate golf tournaments.

He has coached over 25 athletes who have either been named to the Golf Coaches Association of America All-American Scholar Team or The Big East Conference All-Scholar Team.

Hunter's personal accolades include three times named BIG EAST Coach of the Year - 1995, 2004, and 2010. Coach of the Year honors in District II of Division I Men's Golf in 1997. Georgetown University's Coach of the Year in 2005 and the Vicennial Medal at Georgetown University in 1999 distinguishing 20 years of service.

Hunter is past president of the BIG EAST Golf Coaches Committee and chair of the District II Golf Committee. He serves on the advisory boards for the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) and Golf Pride Grips Co. and has been the keynote speaker for the ESPN Junior Tour. Hunter has been a member of the Georgetown University Host Committee for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournaments in 2001, 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2013.

Prior to Georgetown, Hunter served as the Assistant Director of the Vincent T, Lombardi Memorial Center at Fordham University, his alma mater. As a member of the Fordham University baseball team, he was coached by former New York Yankee legend, Gil McDougald.

Off the golf course, Hunter is an IAABO basketball official, Board #12, serving interscholastic leagues in the District of Columbia, Montgomery Country, Md., Howard County, Md. and Arlington, Va. Hunter has officiated in four Maryland State Boys Basketball Championship Tournaments held at The Comcast Center, home to the Terrapins of Maryland University. He is also a former staff member of the Capitol Conference Basketball League, which is a member of the NCAA Division III.

Hunter grew up in Bethesda, Md. and attended Gonzaga College High School in Washington, DC. His undergraduate years were spent at Fordham University where he earned a bachelor of science in economics in 1977; from there moved on to Temple University to study athletic administration and received his Master of Education degree in 1979.
