Former LPGA player Laurie Brower joined head coach JoJo Robertson's staff in June 2011 as the program's volunteer assistant coach.
One of the top golfers in school history, Brower, a 1985 Texas Tech graduate, has worked as an instructor at The Rawls Course since shortly after the facility opened in 2003.
"We are very excited to have Laurie as part of our team," Robertson said. "She played here at Texas Tech and had an outstanding career. Laurie has tremendous knowledge of the game and her LPGA playing experience will be helpful to our players. She has a lot to share and will definitely add to our program."
Brower was a two-time Southwest Conference Player of the Year during her Tech playing days from 1982-85. She spent six years on both the Futures and Players West tours before joining the LPGA as a rookie in 1992.
After a 10-year career that resulted in numerous top 10 finishes, Brower retired from the tour in 2002 ranked 214th in total earnings. She came out of retirement briefly in 2008 to qualify and play in the U.S. Women's Open.
