The Glenview, Ill., native enters his fourth year at Minnesota in 2014-15.
The fan-friendly event is part of the second annual Minnesota Invitational.
The Second Annual Minnesota Invitational highlights Michele Redman's fourth year with the Gophers.
Anna Laorr led the Gophers in a tie for 22nd at Karsten Creek Golf Club.
The third and final round of the 2014 NCAA Central Regional is set for Saturday.
Michele Redman is set to begin her fourthseason as the head coach of the University of Minnesota women's golf program. Redman officially joined the "U" family in August of 2011.
Redman and the Gophers are coming off of one of the best seasons in program history in 2013-14. The Gophers' NCAA Central Regional berth in 2014 was just the seventh in school history while the Maroon & Gold finished just two strokes shy of a trip to the NCAA championships. The team also picked up its first win in six seasons at the BYU Entrada Classic last season while the team also hosted the Minnesota Invitational at the Minikahda Club -- the team's first home tournament in eight years.
Statistically speaking, the 2013-14 season may have been Minnesota's best ever with four of the program's top tournament scores including the 2014 UCF Challenge, which tied the school record at 869, as well as four of the top seven rounds in program history. Individually, Carmen Laguna set a new school scoring average record at 74.19 to lead the Maroon & Gold while Anna Laorr, Banchalee Theinthong and Sarinee Thitiratanakorn also posted averages that ranked among the top-10 in program history. Theinthong graduated with the second lowest career scoring average in Gophers history (76.45) while Laorr earned her first career win in 2014 at the BYU Entrada Classic.
Redman, who competed on the LPGA Tour for 20 years, is a graduate of Indiana University, where she was a four-time All-Big Ten selection, a two-time All-American and the medalist of the 1987 Big Ten Championships.
Redman led the team in stroke average in two of her four seasons in Bloomington and helped the Hoosiers claim two Big Ten Conference titles. IU also competed in three NCAA Championships in her time on campus, including an 11th place finish at the 1985 Championships.
"I am so excited to be selected as the new Head Coach for the University of Minnesota Women's Golf program," said Redman, who now resides in Minnesota. "It is an honor for which I am truly grateful. I feel privileged to be able to guide and encourage young women as student-athletes throughout their college experience."
