On Wednesday, Rutgers men’s golf head coach Rob Shutte was named 2023 Golf Pride Grips Region Division 1 Northeast Coach of the Year. The program continues to make strides under Shutte, who just completed his 12th season leading the Scarlet Knights. He was previously named GolfWeek Northeast Coach of the Year in 2020.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for this award,” Shutte said. “Our players have elevated the program every year higher and higher, and this is a tribute to them. To be named alongside such a tremendous group of golf coaches around the country means a lot. I couldn’t do this without the great support of Rutgers Athletics.”
Shutte’s honor comes just one week after Rutgers was named the 2023 Northeast Team of the Year by golfpride.com. In addition, Xavier Marcoux, Luke Wells and Noah Kumar were named to the All-Northwest PING Team last week.
With almost 20 years of collegiate coaching experience, Shutte is also a PGA Class “A” member. He previously coached at Muhlenberg (men’s) and Lehigh (women’s). Since arriving at Rutgers in 2012, Shutte has rebuilt the program in steady fashion.
Rutgers has produced nine PING All-Region accolades, three All-Big Ten selections and one Big Ten Player of the Year honor during Shutte’s tenure. The program just hosted the Big Ten Tournament for the first time ever. The Scarlet Knights have received multiple standout performances this season from several different golfers. They also finished with the best team scoring average in program history.
