Former Kansas State Associate Head Coach for Women’s Golf Jared Helin was named assistant women’s golf coach at The University of Tulsa, it was announced today by Head Coach Annie Young.
Helin comes to Tulsa after spending the past six seasons (2017-23) at Kansas State, where he spent his first five years as an assistant coach and the 2022-23 campaign as associate head coach.
“We’re excited to have Jared and his family join our golf program and the Tulsa community. Jared is a great coach and teacher. Our players know him very well from interactions when we’ve competed against Kansas State. I believe Jared will be a great asset for our golfers and our program,” said Young.
Helin instantly made an impact at K-State in the spring of 2017 by helping guide the Wildcats to a win in their first tournament, the Westbrook Invitational. Kansas State, which also finished third at the John Kirk Panther Intercollegiate in April, earned a bid to postseason play for the fifth time in school history when it competed in the NCAA Athens Regional.
A Kansas native, Helin helped four Wildcats rank in the top 10 in school history for single-season stroke average.
In his first full year as an assistant coach, he helped bring along a freshman-dominated lineup that was mixed with one of the best golfers in program history. Thanks in part to Helin, the four freshmen came together to rank K-State fifth in the nation in the Golfstat Freshman Class Impact Ranking.
Before his coaching stint at Kansas State, Helin was the assistant golf professional at Colbert Hills Country Club for two years. He began working full time at Colbert Hills in July 2014, overseeing staff management and tournament operations in addition to golf instruction, while serving as a Volunteer First Tee Junior Golf Coach. While at Colbert Hills, Helin worked concurrently for Acushnet Company as a Titleist Product Specialist.
Helin began at Colbert Hills as a four-year member of the pro shop staff prior to spending time as an assistant golf professional at Wamego Country Club.
A Titleist Certified Expert Club Fitter, Helin was the 2012 Kansas Golf Association Four-Ball Champion and a 2014 Mid-Am Kanza Cup Qualifier.
Helin graduated from Kansas State in 2015 with a degree in social sciences. The Colby, Kansas, native also attended Professional Golfers Career College in Temecula, California in 2008.
Helin and his wife, Meghan, have two children: daughter, Palmer, and son Presley.
