Scott   Moe

Known for his mental toughness and the ability to routinely rip 300-yard drives off the tee, Scott Moe won three consecutive MIAC Individual Titles in the early 90s and helped the Gusties claim four consecutive MIAC Team Titles from 1990 to 1994. While opposing golfers and coaches reveled at his long drives, it was Moe's passion to compete and understanding of the game that impressed his coach and mentor Whitey Skoog, who later pegged Moe as his successor for the men's golf program. Skoog stated simply, he is as fine a competitor as I ever coached and he played with poise and class. Moe played on four NCAA Tournament squads during his career finishing second in 1991, fifth in 1992, 19th in 1993 and ninth in 1994. He earned All-America honors in 1993 and 1995 posting a career best 19th place individual finish at the national tournament in 1993. One of only eight players in the program's history to play over 100 rounds in a career (105), Moe ranks 12th all-time in career stroke average at 75.9.

After graduating in 1995 with majors in mathematics and secondary education, Moe accepted the position as the assistant men's golf coach at Gustavus, later becoming the head men's golf coach (1996) and head women's hockey coach (1997). He stepped down as the women's hockey coach in the spring of 1999 and added the duties of head women's golf coach in June of 2003. Moe directed the men's golf team to the NCAA Division III National Championship in 2004 and the women's team to second place finishes in 2006, 2010 and 2011. Scott lives in St. Peter with his wife Sarah (Garrison '02) and their children Logan, Jack, and Libby.
