PITTSBURGH — Point Park University Director of Athletics John Ashaolu has hired Easton Renwick as the new head coach of the Pioneers men’s and women’s golf teams. Renwick will begin right away as the 2021-22 golf seasons approach this fall.
“I’m extremely excited to welcome Easton Renwick as our head coach for Point Park University men’s and women’s golf,” Ashaolu said. “Easton’s experience as a student-athlete on the golf teams at Coastal Carolina University and West Virginia University as well as his playing experience professionally make him an excellent choice to lead our golf programs.
“He is an astute teacher of the game and has built connections in the region that will benefit us as we look to continue to build our golf program into a perennial contender in the River States Conference. I am confident that our golf program will once again contend for championships in the very near future.”
“I am extremely thankful to be named head coach at Point Park University,” Renwick said. “Golf has brought so much joy to my life, and I am very excited to share the information I have learned throughout my career to help the student-athletes at Point Park. I am very excited to get on campus and to meet the student-athletes and work with them in developing their skills and achieve their goals.”
Renwick’s playing career has made a name for himself in Western Pennsylvania. He is on the short list of players who have won both the West Penn Open (2017) and West Penn Amateur (2015), a list that includes Arnold Palmer.
The former WPGA Junior Player of the Year in 2009 and 2010 went on to play collegiate golf at Coastal Carolina and West Virginia from 2011-16. He was a team captain at WVU and transferred to the program when the Mountaineers started their men’s golf team in 2014.
Renwick continues to play in tournaments as a professional, and he is also a golf instructor. Renwick is currently stationed at Pine Creek Golf Center in Allison Park as an instructor to hundreds of students of all ages.
Renwick’s golf resume also includes the 2020-21 season as an assistant coach for the North Allegheny High School golf teams and working at Barefoot Resort in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
“I believe that there is more than enough talent in the surrounding areas that we are capable of building a solid team that will be competitive from the start,” Renwick said. “My goal is to field a team of exceptional young men and women that will be leaders not only in the classroom but on the course as well.”
