Georgia Regents women’s golf coach Kory Thompson will take over the men’s program for the rest of this fall on an interim basis while the school searches for a full-time coach.

Thompson will lead the men’s team when it plays in the Brickyard Collegiate Champion­ship, Friday through Sunday, in Macon, Ga. The Jaguars will play three additional events over the next five weeks to close out their fall season.

Henrik Norlander, an All-American who helped lead Augusta State to a pair of national championships and just finished his rookie season on the PGA Tour, will serve as interim assistant coach for both programs.

“I’m very confident in the ability of Kory leading both programs in this limited time,” Georgia Regents athletic director Clint Bryant said in a statement. “She’s proven her ability to manage her program and coach at the highest level. We’re really excited about Henrik returning to the university to provide a service for our student-athletes. Henrik is an outstanding example of what a collegiate student-athlete should be about, both in the classroom and on the course, and now his professional career. I’m sure our teams will gain from this experience and knowledge.”

Last week, third-year Jaguars coach Kevin McPherson stepped down to lead the Coastal Carolina men’s golf program in his hometown of Conway, S.C.

Easy there, riverman

Henricks an awesome guy and incredible golfer with 2 national championship rings, a PGA tour card, and all the credentials to withhold this position. He might be Swedish but still no reason to cowardly make fun of the dude from your keyboard.

AugustaBelle87, I'm not

AugustaBelle87, I'm not exactly sure that was directed at me, but I was talking about Kory Thompson, who will coach the men's team for awhile. Her photo is one of the two above. Hit the "next" photo and there's her pretty picture. That was a total compliment for a nice looking lady and from everything I've heard an excellent coach.

As far as Henrick and that national championship team, I am so proud of them. You should have seen all our comments on here when they won. Go ASU.
