Volunteer Assistant Coach
First Season • VCU '03
Former VCU star Ted Brown joined the Rams as a volunteer coach prior to the 2010 season. Armed with a wealth of collegiate and professional experience, Brown is an exciting addition to the Black and Gold coaching ranks.
Brown is one of the most decorated players in the history of VCU Golf and recently earned a full Nationwide Tour card.
“Ted's wealth of knowledge, gained from seven years knocking around the mini tours, will serve as a great source of information for the team,” said VCU Head Coach Matt Ball. “I have seen how Ted's game has really matured, enabling him to advance to the Nationwide Tour. With his age and experience, he is able to relate to and convey his lessons learned through the school of hard knocks to our players, most of whom have the desire to play professionally. It's great to have Ted around when he is in town."
A two-time All-Colonial Athletic Association selection, Brown led the Rams to three straight league titles from2000-02. In 2002, he fired a CAA Championship record 8-under 64 at The Crossings on the way to individual medalist honors. His historic round included just the second hole-in-one in CAA Championship history. Brown was also the runner-up at the 2003 CAA Championship.
In 2002, he helped the Rams qualify for the NCAA Championships at the Ohio State Scarlet Course in Columbus, Ohio. Additionally, Brown qualified as an individual for the 2003 NCAA Championships.
In December of 2009, Brown finished five-under at the 108-hole PGA Qualifying Tournament at Bear Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach, Fla. Although he fell just shy of earning his full PGA Tour card, Brown earned a spot on the Nationwide Tour by virtue of his top-50 finish.
A native of Peterborough, Ontario, Brown was one of four VCU players recently named to the CAA’s Silver Anniversary Team.
