Lagedrost steps down as women's golf coach

Former USF standout Kelly Lagedrost has resigned after one season as the Bulls' women's golf coach so she can pursue her professional golf career full-time.

"I can't do both. I can't give 100 percent to both," said Lagedrost, whose last day is Friday. "I see myself going back into coaching, but I'm just not ready to give up on playing yet."

Lagedrost, 28, missed the cut at LPGA qualifying school and is playing on the Futures Tour, where she's made the cut in all five events she's played but hasn't finished higher than 18th. She stepped in as coach in August when Susan Holt resigned after 14 years at USF to become head coach at Notre Dame.

USF finished third out of seven Big East teams in last month's tournament and earned a trip to the NCAA Regionals, where USF finished 17th. Lagedrost said USF will likely name a successor in the next few weeks.
