Transcript Golf N.C.A.A. GOLF CHAMPIONS 1958: Left to right: Jacky Cupit, Phil Rodgers, Jim Hiskey, Coach Williams, Frank Wharton, Bob Pratt. Championship won at the Taconic Golf Club in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Set team record of 570 for 36 holes. Phil Rodgers high man. The guy behind the University of Houston golf success is Dave Williams. He's the coach, recruiter, and planner, and even a pretty good golfer. Now in his eighth season as U.H. golf coach, Williams has produced teams that have won three consecutive N.C.A.A. championships and countless other smaller tournaments. Since Williams, a former mechanical engineering professor, took the golf job in 1952, a Houston team has finished no worse than 11th in the National Championship tourney. In 1956, the Cougars won the N.C.A.A. title in Columbus, Ohio. The Red and White golfers followed up their national title with two more in 1957 and 1958. A graduate of East Texas State College in 1939, the popular coach lettered there in football, basketball, and tennis. It was 1946 before he played golf. Now he shoots in the 70s. Elected President of the N.C.A.A. Golf Coaches Association last summer, Williams originated one of collegiate golf's top tournaments, the annual Southwestern Intercollegiate Invitation.
