Friday: Scott Simpson

Ready for tee time? New University of Hawaii men’s golf head coach Scott Simpson will be our featured guest in our next ESPN Honolulu “Fan Friday: Talk Story” episode. This exclusive interview, conducted via Zoom and hosted by Tiff Wells, will be available for viewing on our ESPN Honolulu Facebook page tomorrow (Friday) starting at 10:00 a.m.

Simpson, who was previously an assistant coach for the Rainbow Wahine golf team, has a résumé that is as impressive as it is long. He was a competitor on the PGA Tour for 27 years and won seven tour events, including the 1987 U.S. Open.  In that major, Simpson beat the legendary Tom Watson by one stroke and also held off top ten finishers such as Seve Ballesteros, Ben Crenshaw, Bernhard Langer and Curtis Strange.

Since becoming a full-time Hawaii resident in 2014, Simpson has been active in serving the local golf community. He was the head golf coach at Le Jardin Academy high school for two years and was involved with the Hawaii State Junior Golf Association and the First Tee Hawaii program. Simpson has also taught private lessons at Mid-Pacific Country Club and Hoakalei Country Club.
