Unlike Texas Basketball, Football, Track And Baseball There Are Very Few Books Or Research Material That Discuss Longhorn golf.  I Hope With Time This Site Can Add Some Historical Insight And Tell The Full And Compelling Story Of The Texas golf Tradition. 

  • 1971, 1972, and 2012 National Champions with 4 runner-up finishes (1983, 1989, 1994, and 2016)

  • Longhorn success in golf started with Legendary golf instructor Tom Penick followed by his younger brother Harvey Penick.

1913

 

The Athletic Council is formed. Its goal - conduct sports in an "honorable and beneficial manner", promote suitable exercise for UT students, and raise and disburse funds to maintain the athletic programs. 

1923

Texas supports 7 sports in 1923- football, baseball, basketball, track , cross-country, tennis, and wrestling.  There are no varsity sports for women, and no coed golf for either sex. 

1926

Men's golf is adopted by the SWC as an official sport . 

 

Coach Tom Penick 1927- 1930

Tom was Harvey Penick's older brother.  If not for Tom's insistence that Harvey work as a Caddie, we may never have learned about golf thru Harvey's eyes.

1927

Golf is recognized as a varsity sport at UT. Harvey gives credit to his brother for planting the seeds for future UT National Championship teams.  Team had no uniforms or team home.

Tom Penick resigns to focus on his job as head professional golf instructor at Lions.  Tom capacity was unofficial golf coach.  He was an excellent teacher of fundamentals and link play.

Coach Harvey Penick  1931-1963

Kevin Robbins the author of the book Harvey Penick says that Harvey wanted his pupils to swing the bucket, clip the tee, give luck a chance, and take dead aim.

Harvey Penick's coaching style was based on a life time of experience. He knew the truth about a golf swing without knowing the reason it worked. He never tried to answer the question why "taking dead aim" worked. He just taught the premise without discussing the cause.

 

Harvey Penick Earned A National Reputation As The Pro's Pro, The most popular Instructor for Top Players On The Men's And Women's Tours. Among His Students Were Ben Crenshaw, Tom Kite, Don Massengale, Kathy Whitworth, Mickey Wright, And Sandra Palmer. 

Harvey is 26 years old when he accepts the head coaching job for the men's UT golf team.

  • HOH 1969

  • Coached UT to 20 SWC golf titles

  • 8 times Harvey's team finished in the NCAA top 10 including runner-up for the National Championship in 1949

  • 19 individual conference medalists and one National Medalist  

  • Named "National Coach of the Year" by PGA in 1989.

  • 1985 Penick was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame.

 

In the book Harvey Penick-The Life and Wisdom of the Man Who Wrote the Book on Golf by Kevin Robbins, Kevin makes a profound statement that captures the life work of Harvey Penick.  Kevin says Harvey was a "caddie who became a player, who became a club professional, who became an instructor", and ...... is "ensconced, firmly and forever, as the guardian of golf's simplest truths". 

Kevin's book is a great read that not only captures the essence of Harvey Penick, but captures in mesmerizing detail some of the most important tournaments and  historical moments in the history of  Golf.   

 

1931- 1932 Harvey Penick

 

This Longhorn  team was made of inter-collegiate competitive novices.

A Reflection on Harvey Penick's teaching style.

According to the book Harvey Penick- The Life and Wisdom of the Man Who Wrote the Book on Golf by Kevin Robbins, Harvey was non-confrontational, kind, disarming, and non-aggressive. Harvey's skills at instruction were learned from all the great players he met. He was a listener more than a talker, and his listening skills made him one of the greatest college coaches of all time.  Harvey said "Most of my knowledge came from other pros.  He also listened and learned from his UT players. He stated high school "Boys had pros" that taught them before he was their coach at Texas. 

Kevin Robbins says - "Harvey's life was blessed- he was in the right place, at the right time, and in the right frame of mind for the rise of women's golf." Fred Davis says about Harvey "He is simple but not simplistic, reserved without being passive, disciplined but not rigid, and confident without being presumptuous."

Harvey Penick's coaching style  was based on a life time of experience. He never tried to answer the question why "taking dead aim" works.  He just taught the premise without discussing the nature of things. He had a knack for not over coaching his pupils. 

Tom Kite said that Coach Penick was a great coach because "he understood the way the body worked," and he "totally understood what made the golf swing work".

Harvey had a special place in his heart for Tom Kite. In the book "Harvey Penick" by Kevin Robbins the author states that "Kite is a driven man with a colossal work ethic" but he had "a fraction of the athletic ability of someone like Crenshaw". "Golf never came easily to Kite, but he worked so hard at the game that he seemed to bend its will in his favor. Crenshaw won with ambivalent grace. Kite won with rabid commitment". Harvey Penick said that Tom had a " fire smoldering inside of him to succeed". Tom succeeded because of the countless hours he practiced  his shots. Tom knew there was a difference between practice and hitting balls. He said  "Practice requires concentration, while hitting balls does not."
