Previous College: Rollins College
Experience: Fifth Season

Naree Song was introduced as the assistant coach of the women's golf program on June 30, 2015, and enters her fifth season with the Crimson in 2019-20.

The 2019 team captured its sixth Ivy League championship in eight years, with first-year Elizabeth Wang winning the overall title and joining classmates Michelle Xie, Anina Ku and Chloe Royston on the All-Ivy League team. The women went on to compete in East Lansing, Michigan at the NCAA Championship.

In her first season on staff, Song helped Harvard become the first Ancient Eight program to win five-straight Ivy League titles on the women's side as the Crimson led from beginning to end en route to a 13-stroke victory over Princeton. Anne Cheng (1st team), Michelle Xie (1st team), Christine Lin (2nd team), and Anna Zhou (2nd team) were each named to the All-Ivy League teams for their performances. The squad went on to a ninth-place performance at the NCAA Regional Championships in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the program's best-ever finish at the event, as Zhou, the Ivy League Rookie of the Year, finished tied for 12th place individually to just miss a spot at the NCAA Championships. In her second season with the Crimson, Song helped the squad to three team wins, four individual victories, and a runner-up finish at the Ivy Championship. Anna Zhou was tabbed to the All-Ivy League second team. 

Song began her golf career at the age of seven and quickly became one of the top junior golfers in the world. She won her first professional event, The Thailand Ladies Open, at the age of 14. She also went on to win three AJGA major championships and became a two-time AJGA First Team All-American. She competed in her first U.S Women's Open at the age of 14 where she took Low-Amateur honors.

Song attended University of Florida at the age of 17 and after one semester, turned professional and competed on the Symetra and LPGA Tours, winning one event on the Symetra Tour in 2004.

Due to illness and injury, she retired from professional golf and turned to education at Rollins College where she assumed the Assistant Women's Golf Coach position. During her tenure the team finished runner-up at D2 NCAA Nationals two years in a row. Shortly after graduating Rollins with a B.A in English and an M.A in Human Resources, Song accepted a Programming Coordinator position at The Golf Channel. Song's passion for coaching led her back to IMG Academy, where she was a former student-athlete for seven years.
