More About Jeff Mitchell:
In his nine-year career he finished in the Top 10 13 times and made 111 career cuts. He said "there is nothing that can compete with the last hole of a TOUR event." His career was cut short in 1983 by an elbow injury.
Jeff returned to Texas Tech to complete his degree and became the Texas Tech women's golf coach in 1990. In an ironic twist, during his stint with the Red Raiders, he coached against some of the women on "The Big Break VI." In addition, he coached the Red Raiders men's team from 1998-2000. Jeff left Texas Tech in the fall of 2000 to coach the men's team at Stanford University for four years.
He currently plays on the Heartland Tour and is one of the circuit's leading money winners.
