Garrett Runion was named LSU head golf coach in June 2018. He served the previous six season as LSU assistant men's coach. Runior competed four seasons for the Tigers from 2003-08 and was a four-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll.  Runion returned to LSU after coaching Nova Southeastern University to the 2012 NCAA Division II national championship in his only season as head coach.

LSU concluded its shortened spring 2020 season with a 10th-place finish at the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate at Long Cove Golf Club in Hilton Head, S.C.  The Tigers posted consistent team scores (299-298-300) but did not challenge the leaders. Wake Forest shot the low team score each day and cruised to a 26-stroke win over runner-up Auburn with Duke, UCLA and Texas filling out the top five in the 17-team tournament. The course played to par 71, 6,290 yards with an average 18-hole score of 76.1 strokes in windy conditions.

The Tigers' Latanna Stone (75-75-71=221) tied for 20th, and Ingid Lindblad (74-73-75=222) tied for 23rd.
