STILLWATER, Okla. – Oklahoma State’s men’s golf team has added former Cowboy standout Stratton Nolen to its staff as an assistant coach it was announced today by head coach Alan Bratton.

“We are excited to add Stratton to our staff. He is smart, competitive, hardworking and loves Oklahoma State,” Bratton said. “He knows what it takes to achieve on the course while excelling in the classroom. He will be a good mentor for our current guys and will bring the right kind of kids into our program on the recruiting trail. I cannot wait to hit the road recruiting with him.”

After redshirting during his first season in Stillwater in 2013-14, Nolen, competed in four events the following season for an OSU team which captured one team title on the year.

As a sophomore in 2015-16, Nolen earned third-team All-America status from Golfweek magazine and was also tabbed as an honorable mention selection by the Golf Coaches Association. A native of Austin, Texas, he was named a first-team All-Big 12 pick after earning his first career victory at the Big 12 Championship where he finished with a 6-under 282 total at Whispering Pines Country Club in Trinity, Texas. That season, Nolen added three more top-five finishes, including a third-place showing at the NCAA Stillwater Regional.

OSU recorded four team victories during that campaign as well.

As a junior, Nolen added three more top 10s while competing for a Cowboy squad that won five times on the year.

Nolen’s final season was a memorable one as the Cowboys reeled off 10 victories during the 2017-18 campaign and capped the year with the program’s 11th NCAA title, emerging victorious at Karsten Creek. He was named a first-team Academic All-Big 12 pick following his final collegiate season.

After competing professionally for three years upon graduation, Nolen has worked since 2021 as a data and financial analyst in the medical field.
