Alumni Spotlight: Will McCurdy – Auburn University Athletics




In the fall of 1947, Auburn announced the creation of its men’s golf program. Throughout the 2022-23 season, we remember and honor the defining moments and exceptional alumni that make up the program’s illustrious 75-year history.

A native of Fort Payne, Alabama, Will McCurdy was an All-SEC and All-Region golfer who was part of the first team to place in the top five nationally under Coach Clinard. Later, McCurdy even returned to The Plains to serve as a volunteer assistant coach for the program.

Q: Why did you choose to pursue your golf career at Auburn?

McCurdy: My parents are both graduates of Auburn and my father was also a starter on the football team from 1982 to 1987. My childhood golf hero, Scott Weatherly, was also an alumnus of the golf program at Auburn.

Q: What do you consider your greatest accomplishment during your time with the program?

McCurdy: Be named a 2011-2012 All-SEC student-athlete.

Q: How would you describe your college experience in one word?

McCurdy: Memorable.

Q: What is your fondest memory of your time in Auburn?

McCurdy: Probably the amazing finish at regionals in 2012. We were in the top five teams in the country, and I think we went under 7 in the last 5 holes and made it to nationals by two strokes. Coach Clinard was emotional in the parking lot, and most of us were too.

Q: What degree did you complete at Auburn and what career path did you choose?

McCurdy: Communications. I work as a pre-construction manager for Holland Homes, a home builder based here in Auburn.

Q: Do you still play golf? How?

McCurdy: Yeah, I played professionally for six years then retired in 2018 and regained amateur status in 2020. I’m now the 2021 Alabama State Mid-Am champion and the 2021 and 2022 Saugahatchee Club Champion!

Q: Besides playing, are you still involved in the game of golf?

McCurdy: Not really. I was a volunteer assistant for Clinard and Maggard in 2018-2019, but that’s about it. I now have a one year old daughter and I work a lot. I play once a week to maintain some playing capacity.

Q: What have you learned from your experiences on the Auburn golf team?

McCurdy: Memories and friendships of a lifetime that I wouldn’t trade for the world!

Q: What advice would you give to current and future members of the Auburn golf team?

McCurdy: Immerse yourself! These four to five years are the only times in your life when you will feel this atmosphere of teamwork and fraternity.

Q: Is there anything else you would like to add regarding your time in Auburn?

McCurdy: Yes. I would like to say that I believe I hold an AU golf record as the only one to be paid by teammates to eat a cheese-stuffed hot dog from a gas station rotisserie while traveling in car. CC: Jackson Beindorf and Kyle Kopsick.
