Coaching comes naturally to Sue Nyhus, formerly the longtime women’s golf coach of Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University. Having recently become a PGA Professional, Nyhus considers herself “uniquely qualified” to mentor aspiring PGA members. She has the life experience of a veteran teacher, yet also can relate to someone who’s going through the process.
That vantage point, plus a willingness to give back, have resulted in Nyhus’ 2022 Professional Development Award in the Utah Section PGA. “I love helping, and will do it as long as I can be effective,” said Nyhus, a Utah Golf Hall of Fame member who works as the program director for The First Tee of Utah.
She contacted every associate member of the Section, offering any assistance and encouraging them to “finish one more assignment and to keep moving” in the PGA program.
