WORCESTER, Mass. - Holy Cross golf coach Bob Molt has received the Gordon McCullough Coaching Award presented by the New England Intercollegiate Golf Association at the 72nd Annual NEIGA Championship held at the Captains Golf Course in Brewster, Mass. The honor was presented to Molt by Assumption golf coach and former Crusader standout Tim Bibaud, at a banquet held at the Irish Village Restaurant.

"Bob Molt was an overwhelming choice to receive this honor," said Executive Director of the NEIGA, George Jacobson. "He is such a loyal supporter of Holy Cross and has left a positive lasting impression on his student-athletes throughout his 31 year career."

Molt received this honor due to his outstanding dedication to college golf, and for his contributions to his players, fellow coaches and golf committees at local and regional levels. He was also recognized for the inspiration he has provided to many of his players through his roles as a PGA professional and college golf coach.

At the NEIGA Championship, the Starboard Course was named in honor of Molt for the event.
