Suzy Whaley, who made headlines when she played in a PGA Tour event a decade ago, has signed on to help coach Quinnipiac University's women's golf team.

NEW-LOOK LPGA

LPGA players show off their off-course style.

Head coach John O'Connor said Thursday that Whaley will be a volunteer coach during the 2013-14 season.

Whaley, who lives in Farmington, Conn., played in the 2003 Greater Hartford Open after winning the Connecticut PGA Section Championship, becoming the first woman to win a PGA section title.

Her victory off the women's tees led to a rules change that requires all golfers to compete from the same tees.

Whaley has been a golf instructor for more than 20 years and last year was named an LPGA Top 50 Instructor.

Her daughter Jennifer is a member of the Quinnipiac golf team.
