Elsa Moberly, a former Kentucky Miss Golf, will transfer to Eastern Kentucky University after spending her freshman season at Mississippi State University, Eastern Head Coach Mike Whitson announced today.

Moberly will be able to play immediately as a sophomore at EKU in the fall and have three seasons of eligibility remaining.
The Science Hill, Kentucky native earned Kentucky Miss Golf honors in 2014 as a senior at Pulaski County High School. She was a three-time all-state selection (2012, 2013, 2014) and finished in the top-5 at the state tournament three times.
“I am so glad that Elsa has decided to come to EKU to continue her golf career,” Whitson said. “I have known Elsa for a long time and I am excited to be her coach starting this fall. Her game speaks for itself and Elsa will step right in and help us continue to build our program to a top-notch level.”
At Mississippi State, Moberly played in four events as a freshman in 2015-16. In 11 rounds she posted a 76.9 stroke average. Moberly shot a season-best round of 72 at the Schooner Fall Classic and finished 33rd overall with a 36-hole total of 146 (+4). She fired a round of 73 on her way to posting a season-low 54-hole tournament score of 228 at the Jim West Challenge.
Moberly qualified for the U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship three times (2012, 2013, 2014), played in the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links twice (2013, 2014) and played in the U.S. Women’s Amateur in 2015.
She finished in the top-10 seven times on the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Tour.
Eastern Kentucky has won three of the last four Ohio Valley Conference championships and made three NCAA Regional appearances. The Colonels captured the 2016 OVC title by 18 shots and placed 16th at the NCAA Shoal Creek Regional.
