Solheim Cup hero takes up new Performance post at ‘bolstered’ Scottish Golf

LPGA star swapping California for Caledonia to take up new performance position at Scottish Golf

SCOTTISH LPGA player and Solheim Cup hero Kathryn Imrie has taken up a new position as Performance Coach at Scottish Golf.

Imrie, above, will be responsible for the Women and Girls within Performance and Pathways, working closely with Catriona Matthew and the rest of the Performance team.

Relocating home from California, Imrie originally hails from Dundee, and has a strong background both as a player and

as a coach – most notably as Solheim Cup Vice-Captain in 2019 and 2021, alongside Matthew.

Her performance experience is extensive, having turned pro in 1991 after making the GB&I Curtis Cup team in 1990, and posting two top-ten finishes at the 1991 European Tour. Imrie was the first Scot to win on the LPGA Tour in 1995 at the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic and played in the Solheim Cup in 1996 at St Pierre in Wales.

Imrie also held an LPGA record for making eleven birdies in one round at the 1997 State Farm Charity Classic in Illinois. She played professionally until 2009 and went on to teach at the Jim McLean Teaching Academy in Palm Springs, among other coaching commitments.

She brings a wealth of experience, including a transatlantic perspective to the role.

Speaking on her appointment, Imrie said: “At this point in my career this is the perfect opportunity to return to Scotland to help influence and coach our future female golf stars. I’m extremely passionate about sharing my golf knowledge to help others succeed and I can’t wait to join the team.”

Alongside Imrie, Colin Robertson will bolster the team as Pathways and Coaching Advisor.

Colin has worked in the pathway and coaching world of sport for over 30 years, most notably at Scottish Rugby for 20 years as National Coaching Manager and then as Academy Manager.

He was the only head coach to work with all the Scottish Age Group National Teams involving both 6 Nations and World Cups.
