Re: High School GolfDepending on how big the school is, the level of play will be different in order to make the team. I know a few teams from our area can barely find enough players to send out a lineup of 8 varsity nd 8 JV, which is the amount that starts and counts for the team. Most schools will take extra, and for my high school, which is really big and particularly competitive, we kept 13 for varsity and 14 for JV. At most schools like mine, in order to make varsity you need to be shooting in the 70 consistently, and anything under 95 or so to make JV. We had almost 70 people try out though, so cuts had to be made. A few of the schools we played though, as i mentioned, could barely fill a lineup, and bogey golf was able to make varsity, and a bag of clubs would get you a spot on JV.
It just depends on the school. The biggest thing is to give him the opportunity, and let him take it as seriously as he wants. The only thing I would stress to him is the rules, and playing the game honestly, as it seems there are all too many players who try to cheat whenever possible.
