Victoria Fallgren: state champion, player of the year, coach at Gonzaga, apprentice in PGA program

Since 2013 Victoria has been the assistant coach for the women’s golf team at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash. Prior to that she played four years on the Gonzaga team, winning her very first collegiate tournament as a freshman, and becoming the first Gonzaga player to win the individual West Coast Conference championship, which she did as a junior in 2012.

Since then she has won the Washington Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship three times (2017, 2018, 2020) and was named the Washington Golf Women’s Mid-Amateur Player of the Year three times (2017, 2018, 2020). She has qualified for three U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links, two U.S. Women’s Amateurs, and two U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateurs.

Victoria talks with us about her own journey from learning the game as an 8-year-old in Southern California, and how she works with her players in improving their games.

She has recently made the decision to enter the PGA Professional program, giving up her amateur status as a player, with the goal of becoming a better coach to her players at Gonzaga.
