Andrew Szunyog was named assistant coach of the GW golf team in August 2015.
"We are very excited to have Andrew join our program," said head coach Chuck Scheinost, who enters his third season at the helm of the Colonials. "He brings a great passion for the game and helping our student-athletes achieve success both on and off the course. With over 10 years in the golf industry, Andrew's skills are unmatched and will help us as we continue to push the program to new heights."
Szunyog, who served as a volunteer assistant coach for the Colonials in the spring, has spent the last three years as tournament director at The Country Club at Woodmore in Mitchellville, Maryland, managing and operating more than 35 outside events and 10 club tournaments annually.
Szunyog also spent nearly four years as assistant director of rules and competitions at The Sun Country Golf House in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, where he directed tournaments for the Sun Country Professional and Amateur Golf Associations, Sun Country Junior Golf Tour and the United States Golf Association.
In addition, Szunyog has interned with PGA Tour event operations and with the Middle Atlantic Professional Golf Association Junior Tour.
"I am thrilled to join the Buff and Blue here at George Washington University and for the challenges and opportunities that await me in this new position," said Szunyog. "I look forward to assisting Coach Scheinost in continuing to build upon the framework of success he has established in his first two years at GW. I am also excited to work with the team and help them become successful student-athletes on the golf course and in the classroom."
A native of the Orlando, Florida, area, Szunyog earned his bachelor's degree in business administration with a specialization in sports management from the University of Florida in 2003. He also attended Professional Golfers Career College in Orlando, earning his associates degree in professional golf management in 2006.
