Ken Ord begins his 14th season as the head women's golf coach at F&M during the 2022-23 academic year. The Diplomats enter the upcoming season coming off of a second place finish at the 2022 Centennial Conference Championships. That accomplishment marked the third time F&M has been the Centennial Conference runner-up, with two of those performances coming under Ord's guidance (2010, 22)

Under Ord’s tutelage, a member of the Diplomats has earned All-Centennial Conference (CC) honors on six occasions, including a run of three-straight seasons from 2015-17. In that list is Kathleen Smith '16, who became just the fourth women’s golfer in F&M history to earn a pair of All-CC honors after tying for fifth in 2016 and earning runner-up honors in 2015. The most recent All-Centennial Conference honoree for the Diplomats was Holly Rittmaster '22 who took third at the 2021 conference championship. Ord coached the Centennial Conference Medalist in Meghan Maloney during the 2010 season as she and teammate Grace Gallagher took home first and second place in the individual standings.

A 1990 graduate of Slippery Rock University with a B.S. in Business Administration, Ord's professional golf career started in 1992. He gained full membership into the PGA in 1996 and is currently the PGA Director of Golf at Overlook Golf Course. 

While at Slippery Rock University, Ord was a four-year standout pitcher for the baseball program. In 1989, SRU baseball competed in the National College World Series where Ord was the winning pitcher in Game 2. Along with baseball, he has excelled in other sports as he's competed in national events in ice hockey as well. 

Ord resides in Lancaster County with his wife, Candace. They are the proud parents of two children, Mackenzie '96, and Michael '99.
