and Anna have quickly taken Schreiner Men's Golf
from the bottom of the American
Southwest Conference (ASC), where it
was when they took over,
to perennial ASC title contenders.
In each of the past four seasons,
Schreiner has finished no worse than
fourth at the ASC Championships and the program is
now proven it belongs among not only
the elite programs in the state.
Schreiner Golf has produced four
All-ASC performers in its history
and three of those have come in the
past two seasons.
For both, coaching Schreiner Golf
has become a labor of love.
Prior to coming to Schreiner, both
had accomplished their career goals
- Anna as a 10-year veteran of the
LPGA Tour - and Ron, as Director of
Athletics, Men's Golf coach and then
tour caddie. So in creating
Schreiner Golf, it was all for the
benefit of their players.
All of this success has run parallel to
the rapid evolution of the SU
Women's Golf team which the duo
started at the same time as taking
over the men's program. While
the women's team has become a
fixture in the national rankings,
the men's team made the jump in
2011-12 and had the #4 ranked
freshman class in the nation.
Two of those players had a stellar
run in the summer of 2012 and showed
that they are competitive with the
best major college players in Texas. Still, Ron and Anna have much higher
aspirations both for the men's
program and their players in the
years ahead. One of the areas
that the duo are particularly proud
of is the classroom performance of
their players. The men's team
had the highest GPA of all male
teams on campus in 2010-11 and a
record performance in the spring.
Andy Bell became the program's first
Academic All-American in 2012.
Anna was an NCAA
Division I All-American golfer at the University of South
Florida (Tampa, FL) and led the Bulls to a 4th place
finish at the 1991 NCAA D-I National Championships - still the
school's highest finish ever. She turned professional after
graduation (BS, Speech Communications) and promptly won
her first pro tournament (Futures Tour-Naples Open). She retired in the summer
of 2005 after
a 14-year pro career - including the last 10 as a member of the LPGA.
Among her professional highlights is a 15th-place finish at
the 1999 U.S. Women's Open played at Blackwolf Run in
her home state of Wisconsin. She has had five
top-7 finishes in LPGA events and has won 11 professional
tournaments. In late 2004, she shot the second lowest round, 60 (-11), in LPGA history behind only Annika Sorenstam's
That score also broke the LPGA record for lowest round ever shot in a final round (for
a more complete listing of
Anna's playing highlights, click here).
Even though retired, Anna qualified
for and played in her 8th U.S.
Women's Open in the summer of 2007.
Currently, she is Teaching
Professional at The Club at Comanche
Trace in Kerrville.
As mentioned, this is Ron's second stint
as a college golf head coach. He was the head men's
golf coach at Concord University
in Athens, WV from 1999-2002. Ron took over an
unsettled golf program in the fall of 1999 and
completely transformed the team in one season.
The team reached the NCAA Tournament and
was a top finisher in the 15-team WVIAC
each year he coached the team. In the classroom,
the transformation was similarly dramatic. In two
semesters, Concord Men's Golf went from the lowest
team GPA on campus to the highest and maintained that
success throughout his tenure. Ron has a Masters degree (MS
- Sports Management) from St. Thomas University (Miami,
FL) and and a BBA in Marketing from Ohio University
The Macoskos came to
Kerrville in August, 2005 when Ron accepted the job of
Director of Athletics at Schreiner. Anna, Ron, Ben (3/23/01)
and their dog Nelson, live in Kerrville.
