TEMPE, Ariz. – After seven extremely successful seasons as a member of the coaching staff of her alma mater, Sun Devil Women’s Golf Associate Head Coach Michelle Estill has announced her retirement from Arizona State.
An Assistant Coach of the 2017 National Championship team, Estill has been an integral part of maintaining the elite status of the Sun Devil Women’s Golf program.
“I am so grateful for the opportunity Coach Missy Farr-Kaye and Arizona State University has given me for the last seven years,” Estill reflected. “I bleed Maroon and Gold and will be a Sun Devil for Life. I feel fortunate to be a part of the tradition and excellence of the Sun Devil Women’s Golf program and work in this amazing athletic department. I have learned so much about coaching under the leadership of Coach Farr-Kaye, but more importantly, she’s helped me grow as a person. I’m thankful for all the student-athletes who let me be a part of their journey. They had an extremely positive impact on my life. I made some wonderful memories that I will cherish forever.”
Estill was hired in November of 2016 and the decision immediately paid off, as she helped Arizona State win the 2017 NCAA title later that year. Her first four years were spent as an assistant before being promoted to Associate Head Coach in June of 2020, a position she held for the past three years. Working side-by-side with Head Coach and former teammate Missy Farr-Kaye, the two formed a dynamic duo that created a culture allowing student-athletes to thrive on and off the course.
“Michelle has given Sun Devil Golf and Sun Devil Athletics everything,” Coach Farr-Kaye exclaimed. “Not only for the past 6-plus years, but also as alumna and Sun Devil for Life. I am very grateful for the time, passion, knowledge and care that she has provided to Sun Devil Women’s Golf! Michelle made significant contributions to our many successes including winning the NCAA Championship in 2017 and played a huge role in the individual success of many, on the course, in the classroom, and as a friend. As an alumna to our program, her passion has and always will be inspiring and we look forward to her walking the local fairways and remaining a big part of the golf community at various levels. We all wish Michelle all the best in her retirement from coaching at Arizona State and thank…
