“As a member of CU’s first team, LindaSue Chenoweth brings a sense of history and tradition to our program,” says head coach Anne Kelly. “She provides the link between the former and current players. She’s a diehard Buff fan and her enthusiasm is contagious.”
LindaSue Chenoweth is in her seventh year as an assistant coach for the University of Colorado women’s golf team, building upon a successful Colorado career that began on the team roster and is now in the coaching ranks.
“Making the transition from player to coach was not a difficult one for me. I wanted to remain part of this program and watch it develop into a top-ranked team. I do miss playing everyday, but I take great joy and pride in watching my successors bring this program to a new level.”
In addition to her coaching responsibilities, Linton is the recently named executive director of the Colorado Opens, having been named to the position this summer.
Chenoweth spent four years on the Colorado women’s golf team from 1994-97, first earning, then maintaining, over the course of her career a reputation as one of the squad’s most consistently reliable performers. She played 83 career rounds, tied for the most ever heading into the 1998-99 season, with her scores counting toward the team total in 63 (.759) of those rounds.
While Chenoweth was a standout on the links, she was an absolute all-star in the classroom, earning academic all-conference honors following each of her four years as a Buffalo. She graduated from CU in May of 1998 with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology.
“My goal is to help each of our players realize that they are responsible for their own success. I try to push them to become more self-motivated and focused on their goals. I try to make them see how far they have come and what a privilege it is to be a member of a collegiate athletic team. I have been a part of this program since its inception five years ago. With each season that passes I see records breaking and milestones reached.”
Born December 14, 1974, in Northglenn, Colo., Linton attended Skyline High School in Longmont, Colo., where she earned several awards, including two-time honors on the CHSAA academic all-state team. A member of the National Honor Society, she earned both English and geography student-of-the-year honors in 1991.
The former LindaSue Linton married Sean Chenoweth on July 4, 2003.
