Ryan Quinn concluded his first season as associate head men's golf coach. Quinn has spent the past 15 years as a golf pro and in 2008 he earned Class A PGA membership.
The Falcons competed seven matches, including four tournaments and two dual-matches at their home course, in 2017. In its final home match of the fall, Albertus Magnus placed second against Dean College with a season low of 377. At the GNAC Championship in October, Albertus Magnus finished ninth overall with a team score of 749.
In 2016, the men's golf team continued to improve on the links during their second varsity season in the fall of 2016, as the team competed in four tournaments and earned a pair of dual-match victories at their home course.
Albertus Magnus went undefeated in dual-match play in the Elm City this autumn for the first time in program history. The two triumphs were also a new program-best for the Falcons after winning one during the 2015 campaign.
It was a successful first season on the links for the Albertus Magnus College men's golf team in the fall of 2015, as the team competed in four tournaments and earned their first-ever dual match victory in late September at home against Eastern Nazarene.
During their inaugural varsity season, the Falcons played their home matches at Alling Memorial Golf Course. The 6,248-yard track is a par-72 and played host to a trio of dual matches this year.
Since he turned pro, Quinn has been introducing the sport of golf to new players, and helping current players bring up their game. His philosophy is simple. A better swing means hitting better golf shots. Hitting better shots makes the game more fun. He has served as a pro at several clubs along the Connecticut shoreline, including Fairfield County and Quinn has also received several nominations for Connecticut PGA Teacher of the Year.
Currently, he serves as the director of instruction at the Ryan Quinn Golf Academy located at Kleins' Golf Range in Madison, Connecticut. At Kleins, he provides a program of golf instruction for individuals and groups that includes sessions at the range and on-course outings.
