Joseph Martin enters his second season as head coach of the Philadelphia University Golf Team in 2010-11. He comes to PhilaU from Nazareth Academy High School, where he served as the Head Varsity Golf Coach. At Nazareth, he developed the school's first women's golf team. Under his tutelage the women's program is now one of the top three teams in the PIAA girl's division.
In his first year with the Rams, Martin's team finished eighth overall at the CACC Championships. PhilaU completed the season with a second-place finish in a home tri-match just two strokes behind the winner.
Along with his experience at Nazareth Academy, Martin has held positions at golf institutions such as Dick's Sporting Goods and Somerton Springs Golf Shop. In the positions he held with these organizations he assisted golfers as a club technician, club fitter, and as a teacher of the game of golf. It is this experience that has given him a vast knowledge of the game, in the areas of the equipment, rules, and the mental aspects of the game that assists both players and teams in accomplishing their goals.
A graduate of St. Joseph's University ('80), Joseph resides in the Philadelphia, PA area. He also is also a full time student of the game of golf, as he maintains a library in his spare time of applied theories and practices of the game from its greatest teachers and professionals.
