Mörk Joins TCU Men’s Golf Staff
Aug. 13, 2017
FORT WORTH, Texas – TCU head men’s golf coach Bill Montigel announced the addition of assistant coach Adrien Mörk.
Mörk came to TCU after a two-year stint as an assistant coach at UCF.
“I’ve known the TCU program ever since Julien Brun played there. I know how good the program under Coach Montigel has been, so I couldn’t believe it when I got the phone call about the job. TCU is one of the top programs in the nation and I feel like we can do something special in the next few years.”
Mörk will relocate to Fort Worth with his wife, Sandrine, and daughter, Elin.
“Everyone I know that lives in Fort Worth tells me how great it is,” Mörk said. “I can’t wait to be a part of the community and call Fort Worth and TCU home.”
Mörk helped lead the Knights to three team victories last season, highlighted by winning the NCAA College Grove Regional. After earning a national seed, UCF finished in a tie for 14th place at the NCAA Championship. Mörk coached American Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year, Bobby Bai. Bai also earned all-conference honors in The American, along with Donnie Trosper and Manuel Elvira.
“I am really excited about the addition of Adrien Mörk to our golf program,” said Montigel, who begins his 31st season as head coach and returns four of the five golfers that competed in TCU’s 28th consecutive NCAA Regional last May. “He brings with him experience and success in recruiting as well as national championship appearances. He is going to be a great fit for TCU and the guys will love him.”
Prior to joining the Knights, Mörk served as Coach of the French Golf Federation. A native of France, he served as the Team Advisor at the 2015 European Team Championship in Sweeden, where his squad finished in fifth place. He also coached for France at the 2015 British Amateur, where a record four French players played in the quarterfinals, with Romain Langasque winning the event. Langasque went on to make the cut at both the British Open and the Masters.
Mörk also coaches LPGA Tour professional Perrine Delacour. He began working with Delacour in preparation for LPGA Tour Q School in 2014, where she earned her card with an 11th-place finsih. Later in the season, Delacour finished fourth at the 2015 LPGA Kingsmill. After some injuries and a surgery, Delacour is back to her full potential finishing in seventh place at the 2017 LPGA Manulife.
As a professional, Mörk was the first player ever to shoot a 59 in any European Tour event, accomplishing that feat in the second round of the 2006 Morocco Classic on the Challenge Tour. With a first round 63, and then 59 for a 122 total, he has the lowest 36-hole score of any PGA Tour event. In 2006, he won another Challenge Tour event in Madrid at the Challenge de Espana. He went on to graduate from the Challenge Tour to the European Tour, with Martin Kaymer, Alex Noren, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Alvaro Quiros to name a few.
Mörk has also won four times on the Alps Tour in Europe. He played on the PGA European Tour, turning in a Top 10 finish at the Russian Open and Top 20 at the Open de France in 2006.
In the amateur ranks, Mörk represented France in the World and European Team Championships. He has been ranked as high as number 2 on the French ranking and was the French High School champion. He played collegiately at McNeese State University, where he was a four-year team MVP, four-year All-Southland Conference player and Louisiana Freshman of the Year in 2001. He advanced to the NCAA Regionals twice as an individual and held a 73.7 stroke average for his collegiate career, graduating with a Business degree in 2004.
