USGTF MEMBER PROFILE – JULIE WAGNER
Julie Wagner

USGTF Level III member Julie Wagner was certified in 2011 in Greenville, South Carolina. In a short time since, she has made quite an impact.

Born and raised in Kokomo, Indiana, Wagner has been married to Paul Wagner for the past 18 years. She spent 13 years as a quality engineer for Delphi Automotive and General Motors. After earning USGTF certification, she was hired at Wildcat Creek Golf Course in Kokomo as the golf instructor, and earlier this year was named the head women’s golf coach at Indiana Wesleyan University. The program is a startup one, and will compete for the first time in NAIA Division I in 2012-13.

 

In her own words, “In high school I was a volleyball, track, and softball player and never had interest in golf. I started playing golf because my current husband was playing when we met. I fell in love with the game and continued to play. I got serious in 2005, setting my sights on winning the county amateur tournament. After several failed tries, I had USGTF Master Professional Gary Focken help coach me. I won two years straight in 2009 and 2010. It was then I realized I wanted to give back to the community and help grow golf.”

 

“My passion is to continue to teach and coach. I am motivated to grow women’s golf in the area and was successful in running women’s – only clinics and schools last year. It is exciting to be able to work with talented young ladies who strive and share my passion to grow their golf skills and compete at a high level. I will be working to fundraise for the team over the summer to help out in our travel budget. Any lessons I give I will be donating that money to my golf team budget.”
