In her first year as head coach of the BYU women’s golf program, Carrie Summerhays Roberts continues a tradition unique to Cougar golf.
A native of Heber City, Utah, Roberts joined the Cougars in 1998 when, as a freshman, she was named first team All-WAC and placed eighth at the WAC Championships. An impressive freshman campaign propelled Roberts to a career that included four-consecutive first team all-conference awards, back-to-back MWC Golfer of the Year citations as a sophomore and junior, an Honorable Mention All-America recognition as a sophomore and a third place finish at the NCAA West Regional as a senior.
Roberts holds the BYU record for most career tournament victories with six. She graduated from BYU in 2002 with a degree in community health.
After her career as a Cougar, Roberts, daughter of Senior PGA Tour veteran Bruce Summerhays, competed on the LPGA Tour where she qualified for two U.S. Open Championships.
Roberts and her husband Cory now reside in Lindon, Utah with their daughter Mary and son Henry.
Hired in July of 2010, Jake Ellison enters his first season as assistant coach of the BYU golf program.
Ellison was a four-year letterman for the Cougars from 2003-2007. Before attending BYU, he was a member of the 2001 Georgia Tech men's golf team, which was ranked No. 1 in the country.
During his career at BYU he was a two-time All-MWC performer and named MWC player of the year in 2006. As a senior, he was an integral part of the Cougars’ MWC championship run.
Upon graduating from BYU with a bachelor of science in 2007, Ellison entered several professional tournaments, capturing seven victories, including the 2009 Idaho Open. He also organized golf clinics at BYU and Oklahoma State and served as an assitant to Greg Bohls at Centennial High school.
In February of 2009, Ellison was named to the MWC 10th anniversary men’s golf team, which honored the 10-best players in conference history.
Ellison served a two-year LDS mission to Taipei, Taiwan and enjoys spending time with his wife Kathryn and two daughters Morgan and Jane.
Former BYU All-American and Academic All-American Todd Miller enters his first season as director of golf operations and associate head golf coach after serving four years as the assistant men's golf coach at Brigham Young University.
In his first year as an assistant, Miller helped guide BYU to a 15th-place NCAA Championship finish and maintain a spot among the nation's Top 10 for the majority of the season. In his second season, he helped guide the Cougars to an MWC Championship and a Top-20 ranking throughout the season.
Miller played four seasons for the Cougars and became the first player in the Bruce Brockbank era to achieve citations of All-American, Academic All-American and Academic All-Conference. A natural leader on and off the golf course, Coach Miller utilizes his experience and knowledge of the game as a coach for the Cougars.
Miller grew up in Napa, Calif., where he played junior golf and won four Northern California Championships. He came to BYU as a highly touted recruit and played two solid seasons before leaving to serve an LDS Church mission in Chile.
Soon after returning from his mission, Miller found himself leading the nationally ranked Cougars. During his junior campaign, he led the Cougars in four events and was named All-America Honorable Mention. He played a leading role in the Cougars' ninth-place finish at the NCAA Championships, where he placed 30th individually. Miller continued his solid play throughout the summer following his junior season, reaching the finals of the Utah State Amateur.
Entering a senior season in which the Cougars returned all of their players, Miller continued to contribute to the Cougars' success, garnering Academic All-America and Academic All-Conference honors.
"He's a great coach because he's always energized and helps us raise our level of intensity," former BYU Cougar Daniel Summerhays said about Miller. "He also helps us with our mental game out on the course. He's all about service to his players, and he probably pampers us more than he should."
Miller and his wife Shannon have two daughters, Kate and Jane.
