Salimah Mussani Named Women's Golf Assistant Coach

Jan. 11, 2008

STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford women's golf head coach Caroline O'Connor has announced the addition of former Cardinal Salimah Mussani as assistant coach.

Mussani, a two-year letterwinner with the Cardinal during the 2000 and 2002 seasons after transferring from Texas, returns to Stanford after competing on the professional circuit since 2003.

'I am very excited to welcome Salimah back to The Farm,' said O'Connor. 'She brings with her a wealth of knowledge, experience and passion for the game and the Stanford women's golf program. Salimah willbe a tremendous addition to our staff.'

Mussani's most recent tournament victory came back in August, when she won the 2007 Canadian PGA Women's Championship to take home her first CPGA women's title. In 2006, Mussani claimed the Michelob Ultra Duramed Futures Tour champion honors in her first major. A two-time winner on the Canadian Tour that season, she also participated in two LPGA events (Canadian Open and State Farm Rail Classic).

In addition to winning the 2004 Vistal Classic, Mussani also competed in the 2003 U.S. Women's Open.

A 2002 graduate of Stanford, Mussani was a member of the Cardinal squad that earned a runner-up finish at the 2000 NCAA Championship. She also recorded five top-10 finishes in two seasons. Mussani competed at Texas during her first two collegiate seasons, earning Big 12 All-Academic honors in 1998.

Mussani, who attended Winston Churchill High School in San Antonio, Texas, as a senior, also had success at the junior level. A Texas State 5A High School champion, she was also a two-time Ontario Junior (1994, 1996) and Canadian Junior (1996, 1998) champion.
