Men's Golf at NCAA Championship; May 30, 2012
Jason Sigler, a former four-year letterman for the University of Kansas golf team, begins his third season as the Bruins' assistant golf coach.
Sigler, 28, spent five years as an instructor for the Dave Pelz Golf School. For the 2010 year, he served as the lead instructor at the Pelz school's Atlanta location, where he taught more than 1,000 students in one, two and three-day seminars. Sigler opened and organized the school in Atlanta and consistently received high evaluations from students. Dave Pelz is considered one of America's foremost short game experts and has tutored many golf professionals.
"We're excited to have Jason Sigler join the coaching staff at UCLA," said Head Coach Derek Freeman. "His instructional expertise as well as his collegiate experience will be very valuable in our pursuit of championships. In addition, Jason's motivation and excitement will continue to provide our student-athletes with the atmosphere to become successful."
Sigler played at Kansas from 2003-06, where he won the 2004 Kansas City Amateur Championship. He was an All-Big XII Academic selection from 2004-06. He earned his degree in Sports Management from Kansas in 2006.
A 2001 FCWT First-Team All-American, Sigler played four years of golf at Immaculata High School in Leavenworth, KS, his hometown. In 2001 won the Tapetio Springs championship and was a participant in the Kansas State Amateur.
