Three Former Spartans To Play In Inaugural U.S. Senior Women’s Open This Weekend

Dana Dormann, Amy Ellertson and Juli Inkster are three of the 120 players in the field.

A new era begins in San José State women’s golf as former Spartan All-American and San José State Sports Hall of Fame honoree Dana Dormann takes the helm of the program beginning with the 2018-19 season.

Dormann, who was given a five-year contract, has been the associate head coach and assistant coach for the Spartan program for the past 13-plus seasons. She mentored many players during those years including All-American and conference Player of the Year winners Erica Moston and My Leander. Dormann helped coach the Spartans to berths at the NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championships - 2013 in Athens, Ga., and 2010 in Wilmington, N.C. 

In 2011, Dormann was named the Coach of the Year for the Western Section, as selected by the LPGA Teaching and Club Professional membership. She was one of five collegiate coaches selected for the award.

Dormann has been successful in golf from a young age, winning the 1985 U.S. Junior and Junior World championships to becoming a three-time All-American for the Spartans. She played on 1985 through 1988 teams, was a member of the 1987 NCAA Championship team, won four tournaments and was the 1987 Pacific Coast Athletic Association Player of the Year. Dormann was also an assistant coach for the 1989 NCAA Championship team.

Professionally, she played 10 years on the LPGA Tour, winning the 1992 Las Vegas LPGA International and the 1993 McCall's LPGA Classic. Dormann is a member of the Golf Coaches Association of America Hall of Fame.

Still playing competitively, Dormann earned medalist honors by shooting a three-under 68 to qualify for the inaugural U.S. Senior Women's Open this past July in Chicago. Dormann was the only player under par at the qualifier on the par-71 Ocean Course at San Francisco's Olympic Club.

Dormann is no stranger to USGA events as she played in 14 U.S. Women's Open Championships. She was one of five Spartan All-Americans to make the cut at the 2006 U.S. Women's Open.

Dana and her husband, John, are the proud parents of sons William (23) and Jason (17).
