Show Notes Chapter Markers

Mic Potter, has been the Head Women's Golf Coach of the Alabama Roll Tide since 2005, and previous to that led the Furman Lady Paladins from 1982-2005. Throughout his career, Potter has developed a reputation for being an excellent teacher of the game as well as a builder of elite college programs. His student-athletes consistently have performed at a high level both in the classroom and on the course, with several carrying that level of excellence on into the professional ranks. Mic has been named  Southern Conference Coach of the Year eight times and led his Furman teams to 36 tournament titles including 10 Conference Championships, while his Tide teams have captured 24 tournament wins, which puts him among the leaders for all active women's golf coaches with 60 total victories.  By any standard, Potter has proven to be one of the best women's golf coaches in the nation for more than three decades. He has built successful programs and maintained that standard by recruiting and cultivating talented players who advance to the professional ranks and obtain their degrees. Under Mic's coaching, 15 of his college players have gone on to play professionally earning a combined total of over $10 million in career earnings. Mic's most notable player includes 17x LPGA winner and tv sports analyst, Dottie Pepper. Potter has coached 36 NGCA All-Americans, 36 NGCA All-Scholar Team selections, 62 all-conference selections, six players to 15 first team All-SEC awards, 14 conference players of the year and seven conference freshmen of the year. Potter already had established a Hall-of-Fame legacy before he arrived in Tuscaloosa - thanks to his impressive work building Furman into a national power - but his work over the past decade at Alabama has been historic, culminating with the school's first national championship in 2012. Three seasons later, Potter helped guide Emma Talley to the individual NCAA Championship to cap off the 2014-15 season, becoming the first NCAA medalist in the program's history.
