NORMAN – Oklahoma head men’s golf coach Ryan Hybl announced Thursday that Jonathan Moore has been named the program’s Associate Head Coach and Director of Performance.

Moore, the 2006 individual NCAA Champion for Oklahoma State, comes to Norman after a successful professional career as a player and six years piloting the strength, conditioning, and development program for the Oklahoma State men’s and women’s golf programs.

“Jonathan Moore has always been a leader on the forefront of the golf world,” Hybl said. “He will add so much expertise to our program – from playing at the highest level of our game to all of his knowledge and research of body movement in golf. He’ll be an incredible presence on the recruiting trail and play a significant part in the continued development of our current players. Coach Moore will immediately add value to our program, and we’re both excited to get started.”

The Vancouver, Wash., product turned professional after competing in the 2007 Walker Cup, where he eagled the last hole to secure the final point for Team USA. He enjoyed a nearly decade-long professional career, winning four times and establishing himself as one of the premier players on the Asian Tour. Following his retirement as a player, he returned to Stillwater as the assistant strength and conditioning coach, working primarily with Cowboy and Cowgirl golf. In addition, he developed golf-specific programs that optimized the physical tools of OSU golfers to create best-in-class performance.

“The coaches that God has put in my life have been some of my greatest blessings,” Moore said. “I feel called to be a coach and couldn’t be more excited to officially start my coaching career at the University of Oklahoma with Coach Hybl. Sooner Nation – let’s go!”

With Moore on staff, the men’s and women’s teams at Oklahoma State combined to win four Big 12 and one national championship, along with a runner-up finish at the 2021 women’s national championship. In addition, Moore assisted in developing 14 All-American golfers in the six years he spent on staff.

He co-founded the OSU Golf Research, Innovation, and Performance (GRIP) Center. The GRIP program conducts groundbreaking research with Oklahoma State golfers by identifying and measuring variables contributing to player success, including sleep, hydration, strength, power, and more. The first-of-its-kind research center has revolutionized the science of amateur golf and provided student-athletes with tools that professional golfers utilize daily to compete at the highest level.

In addition, Moore co-designed the Gray Institute’s functional golf system – a certification that has been taught to movement professionals all around the world to enhance their ability to rehab and train golfers.

Moore is a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association and a fellow of applied functional science through the Gray Institute.

He is married to Dr. Claire Moore of Cushing, Okla. They have three children, Adelyn, J.T., and Charlotte.
