Tom Schreiner begins his 10th overall season as the head coach of the men's golf program in 2020-21. He also served as head coach from 2006-11.
Schreiner is no stranger to Covenant golf. He guided the program from 2006-11 and led the Scots to some of the program's greatest successes, including a second place finish at the Appalachian Athletic Conference Tournament in 2009. Also during his initial tenure as head coach, Schreiner's team set a then-program record for lowest 18-hole round and a still-standing 36-hole tournament score (both at the 2008 Piedmont Spring Invitational). Scots golfers won individual titles in three tournaments with Schreiner as head coach.
"I am thankful for the opportunity to be leading the Covenant Scots golf team once again," Schreiner said at the time he was re-hired for the position. "My first stint as head coach were wonderful years and lasting relationships were made with players and their families. I am looking forward to continuing where we left off and helping the Scots become national contenders in NCAA Division III golf."
In his first year back on the job in 2016-17, Schreiner led the Scots to a USA South Tournament berth. The Scots played in 10 events on the year, placing fifth at the Piedmont Fall Invitational and 11th in the 18-team Ted Keller Memorial. Schreiner also brought back the Reeder Cup for the first time in five years to Lookout Mountain in the spring of 2017.
In 2018-19, Schreiner's team had some of the best success the program has seen since joining the NCAA. The Scots earned a top-70 national ranking during the season, the highest in-season ranking for the program, and qualified for the USA South Tournament. The team set program records for a low round score and lowest 54-hole tournament score.
An accomplished golfer in his own right, Schreiner qualified for the 2019 US Senior Amateur Championship. A lifetime golfer, Schreiner had been on the cusp of many USGA national championships throughout his playing career before breaking through in 2019.
In addition to his coaching duties, Schreiner also serves on campus as the Director of Business Operations.
