Alicia Um Hired as Women's Golf Assistant Coach

June 20, 2006

Alicia Um, 26, a former four-year letterwinner for the women's golf team, was hired as assistant coach for the UCLA women's program, the athletic department announced this week.

"We are excited to have Alicia Um become our full-time assistant women's golf coach," said Head Coach Carrie Forsyth. "As a former UCLA golfer, Alicia brings a tremendous amount of experience to the position. She is a very knowledgeable and experienced golfer who can help our players' development. She has also spent a few years in the business world and will bring her organizational and technological skills to the position. I am grateful to have her."

As a senior in 2002, Um earned All-Pac-10 Honorable Mention honors when she tied for 12th place at the Pac-10 Championships. She was a member of the UCLA team that won the program's first regional championship in 2002. That season, the Bruins finished 21st at the NCAA Championship. She also served as team captain for the 2001-02 season.

Um played three seasons (1999-02) for Forsyth and one year (1997-98) for Hall of Fame Coach Jackie Steinmann before graduating with a degree in Economics in March 2002. She was named to the Director's Honor Roll six times during her academic tenure.

Since graduating, Um has worked in the hospitality and golf industries as well as for an information systems company. For the 2005 calendar year, she competed on the West Coast Ladies Golf Tour, qualified to play on the Futures Tour and participated in LPGA Qualifying School.
