David Lynn, Oklahoma Christian University’s athletic director and men’s golf coach, will be inducted into the Golf Coaches of America Association Hall of Fame on Monday, Dec. 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
A 1995 Oklahoma Christian graduate, Lynn is currently a member of the Oklahoma Christian Athletics Hall of Fame. He became the school’s head golf coach in 1999 and athletic director in 2016. Lynn has led the Eagles golf team to 72 team tournament victories, one NAIA national title in 2011, an NCCAA title in 2012, and an NCAA Division II national runner-up in 2022.
Lynn has been named conference coach of the year a total of 10 times in his career, five in the Sooner Athletic Conference, three times in the Heartland and twice in the Lone Star. He has coached 23 NAIA, NCCAA, or NCAA all-Americans and 12 GCAA all-Americans.
Lynn also coached the United States team in the World University Games in South Africa in 2008 and served as an assistant four years later in 2012.
Since being named the university’s seventh athletic director in 2016, Oklahoma Christian has tallied four national championships, both team and individual, across its 15 men and women NCAA sports and five club sports.
“I am humbled and honored to be chosen by my peers for the GCAA Hall of Fame. This honor has only been made possible by the great players I have coached and the support of my family, friends and colleagues,” Lynn said. “It has been an absolute privilege to coach and mentor players for over 20 years at Oklahoma Christian University.”
