Ed Teer begins his first year at William and Mary in 2014-15 as an assistant coach for the W&M men's and women's golf teams. Teer will assist all aspects of running the Tribe programs, from recruiting and administrative functions to working one-on-one with the athletes both in practice and in competition.
"We are fortunate to have Ed be able to join our program," said Albaugh. "I've had the opportunity to work with Ed on various occasions over the last few years, and I believe his knowledge and enthusiasm will have an instant impact with our players and program. He will be the type of coach that will earn the respect of our players and elevate their games."
Teer joins the Tribe after running his golf academy at Williamsburg National Golf Club for the past seven years. He has coached players of all ages and abilities and while he takes great pride in all his student’s successes, nothing brings him more joy than working with junior golfers. Teer’s Academy offers the area’s only year-round junior development program for 4 years old and up. In four years the program has produced wins at the US Kids Local Tour, local and state junior tours, many high school medalists, three collegiate scholarship players, and two individual college tournament medalists.
Teer’s academy focuses on performance coaching, helping players improve their ball striking skills, develop their peak state of performance, and improve their on-course decision making. He also provides club fitting, club alteration, and club repair.
Teer is a certified U.S. Kid’s Junior Golf Instructor, New Rules Golf Certified, Vector Putter Certified, and utilizes the FlightScope 3D-Doppler Launch Monitor. He played college golf at Wayne State University in Detroit, Mich., and has competed in MAPGA and VSGA tournaments, and in many pro-ams.
Teer graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Wayne State University and a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from Ohio University. He lives in Williamsburg with his wife Francie and their children, Jacob and Sadie.
