Damon Jensen has been named the new head coach of the golf program at Trinity Christian College. Jensen will direct both the men’s team that enters its sixth season and the women’s team that made its debut as a varsity program a year ago.
“We are pleased to add Damon to our staff as the new head golf coach,” said Athletics Director Bill Schepel. “With his experience from his years as the men’s coach at Olivet Nazarene University and his own playing career, he will serve our teams well as the programs continue to develop.”
For the past four years Jensen was the head men’s golf coach at Olivet Nazarene University and he served as an assistant to their program for three years prior to taking over. At Olivet, he led a successful program as well as hosted multiple tournaments. In addition, Jensen has been active as a private lesson instructor to golfers of all ages for nearly three decades.
As a competitor, Jensen has won numerous tournaments and club championships. He has qualified three times for the State Amateur Championships and three times for the Illinois State Mid-Amateur Championships. He is a member of the United States Golf Association and the Chicago District Golf Association.
Jensen earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Governors State University in 1993 and an advanced degree in law enforcement from Northwestern University in 2005.
