Chris Zambri, a former USC All-Pac-10 performer and longtime Nationwide Tour veteran, is in his eighth year as USC's men's golf head coach. In a short amount of time, Zambri has established himself as among the top coaches in the nation and has taken his team to the NCAA Championships final in each of his first seven years.
Zambri's teams have won 12 events, including Pac-10 titles in 2007 and 2011 and NCAA Regionals in 2008 and 2012. His 2008 team came within three strokes of first place at the NCAA Championships. Trojan golfers have also won 11 individual crowns under Zambri.
Zambri, 39, played six years on the Nationwide Tour and was an active teaching professional when he was not competing. A 1993 USC graduate who played for the Trojans from 1989 to 1993, Zambri played six seasons on the Nationwide Tour between 1997 and 2004. He finished as high as 19th on the circuit's money list in 1998, posting two second-place finishes that year. He competed in four PGA Tour events as well as the 1995 and 1999 U.S. Opens. As a Trojan, he was a two-time All-Pac-10 second team selection in 1991 and 1993.
Tyler Goulding, a four-year letterman at the Air Force Academy who has professional golf experience and for the past six years has served in the United States Air Force, is in his first year as the USC men's golf assistant coach.
Directors Zambri and Goulding will be assisted by current USC varsity players.
The USC Trojan Golf Camp provides young golfers with the tools to enjoy this great game for a lifetime. Our curriculum is the perfect blend of expert instruction, course play and fun off-course activities. With the experience and passion of coaches Zambri and Wurzer and their staff, each Nike camper can leave at the end of the week feeling more confident about their game.
Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
