Aggies finish 10th in last tournament before Big West Championship
Anna Temple, a former professional and accomplished amateur golfer who spent the last four seasons as an assistant coach at Cal, is in her first year as the Aggies' head coach after being named to the position in August 2012.
Temple, a former all-region player for the Golden Bears during her senior season in 2004, was an assistant coach at her alma mater since 2008. She played three years at Cal after transferring from the University of Wisconsin following her freshman season.
Temple enjoyed an oustanding amateur career, qualifying four times for the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship (2000-02, '04) including advancing to the quarterfinals in her first trip. Another highlight was her third-place showing at the 2004 Canadian Women's Amateur Championship.
Temple's professional career spanned the Durmaed Futures Tour in 2005-06 and nearly three dozen tournaments on the European Ladies Tour. She also played briefly on the Ladies African Tour in 2008. She enjoyed a strong showing at the tour's 2008 WPGA Master's, falling in a playoff for top honors.
Temple earned her undergraduate degree from Cal in 2004.
