The Lady Raiders made their second all-time appearance in the NCAA Championships during the 2014-15 season and used a strong final round to advance past the stroke play portion of the tournament. Texas Tech was among the eight teams to advance to match play where the Lady Raiders capped their historic season in a tie for fifth place nationally after narrowly falling to Duke.

He has a PGA Advanced Professional certification and is also a Trackman Level 2 certified instructor and club fitter for many of the sport’s top brands.Whall spent time on the England mini professional tour after a successful career as an amateur that led to him turning pro at age 18. He graduated from the University of Loughborough in the United Kingdom and spent time learning much of the coaching and teaching aspects of the game from mentor and former Palmer Cup coach for England, David Ridley
