Bielawski Named Assistant Golf Coach at Marquette University
June 13, 2012
MILWAUKEE -- Marquette University head men's golf coach Steve Bailey has announced that former MU golfer Michael Bielawski has returned to the Golden Eagles as an assistant coach. Bielawski, a current PGA professional, was a member of Marquette's 2008 BIG EAST Conference Championship team.
"I couldn't be more excited to bring Mike back to Marquette," said Bailey, who is entering his third season as head coach. "His passion for the Marquette golf program and knowledge as an instructor make him a great addition. More importantly, Mike is a tremendous person and will be a great role model for our student-athletes."
The West Allis, Wis., native was an All-BIG EAST performer as a senior, helping Marquette capture the conference title and earn its first-ever regional berth in the NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championship in 2008. Bielawski finished his MU playing career as the all-time leader in rounds played (135), and he still holds the school record for lowest round when he shot an 8-under-par 63 at the Xavier Provident Invitational as a freshman.
After graduating from MU with a degree in public relations and advertising, Bielawski played professionally on the National Golf Association Hooters Pro Golf Tour as well as the Dakotas Tour, while also working as a club pro at Blue Mound Golf and Country Club in Brookfield, Wis. Currently, Bielawski serves an assistant golf professional at nearby Ozaukee Country Club under head pro Andy Fish.
Bielawski, who still ranks seventh all-time at Marquette in career scoring average (75.18) and fifth in career rounds of par-or-better (29), was twice an all-state selection while attending Nathan Hale High School (West Allis, Wis.) and was the Wisconsin PGA Junior Player of the Year in 2002.
