CLAREMORE, Okla. — Rogers State men’s and women’s head golf coach T.J. Dickinson announced the addition of Chelsea Burney to the coaching staff as an assistant coach for the RSU golf program.
“We are extremely fortunate to have Chelsea join our staff,” Dickinson said. “Not only is she a RSU alumna, but she is an expert in both the fields of fitness and golf. She will be a huge asset to our program’s success as we move forward. It’s always good to have Hillcat Family members return home to further the greatness of RSU.”
Burney returns to the Hill after a four-year playing career for the RSU women’s golf team. The native of Amarillo, Texas placed in the top five twice in her final two seasons and in the top 10 five times, including in the final three tournaments of her career. As a senior, she finished in the top 10 at the Heartland Conference Championships, her final collegiate event.
Burney brings a strong knowledge of performance training to the RSU golf program. She worked at EXOS, a performance center in Phoenix, Arizona for professional athletes, focusing on health and performance for elite athletes. Burney earned a bachelor’s degree in sport management with an emphasis on training and performance.
“I’m very excited to be back on the Hill,” Burney said. “It’s very honorable to give back to Rogers State, a place that has done so much for me. I am looking forward to the season and working with Coach Dickinson to further the success of the program.”
For her RSU career, Burney played in 33 events, totaling 66 rounds. She was a member of the Heartland Conference President’s honor roll multiple times during her career.
