Golf Scholarship

“From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.” ~ Arthur Ashe

I overheard the golf coach at my daughter's golf camp say that he can get any girl with average golf skills a scholarship to college. But I thought to myself, what about the rest of the aspiring young golfers out there?

So here is my way to help give back -- the first (of hopefully many) golf scholarships for high school/undergraduate students who are on their school's golf team.

The $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to the best golf essay submitted. The golf essay topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • How you and your team overcame overwhelming odds
  • How your personal journey led you to embrace the sport of golf
  • How the game of golf has helped you in your studies or in preparing for your career after school
  • How you can personally help grow the game of golf

Plus, all entrants have the option to publish their essays published with links to their social media profiles, providing vital exposure for applicants looking to make a name for themselves in the golf industry.

For more information and to submit essays, please visit the website:

    • I really don’t care either way. Watching some pros on TV adjust the line again...and again...and again is kind of annoying.  They may be breaking a different rule by taking so long, but whatever
    • Well said. I'm sorry that I made it frustrating, but happy that I learned. I talked a bit about club lines and how I feel they differ (they don't remain stationary until impact). So when I read another rule, pieces of equipment that the golfer is actively using shouldn't be considered under "any object" unless expressed in the rule? 
    • I’d rather do a driver. Here’s why, assuming I’m playing the white tees at my home course: PUTTER: A full-swing putter is not a shot you’d think of practicing on the range. Sure, I’ve hit one every once in a while just for the heck of it, and I’ve actually hit some solid ones. But I only averaged about 160 yards on a solid strike, and as far as about 175, which wouldn’t get me home in regulation on a lot of the par-4s on my home course. Also, I probably never hit it above head height, which could be ugly on some of the holes. DRIVER: An average driver for me would go about 230 yards, 250+ if I smoke it. That puts me within striking distance on every hole, and as it happens, I’ve actually practiced less-than-full drivers, which helps on the par-3s and shorter approach shots. I can also hit a decent full swing driver off the deck. As for bunkers, in most of the bunkers at my course, you can just run it up the lip and pop it out gently.
    • Todays Session 8-4-20 GOALS: Main goal is to face a more open face in backswing-then close face on downswing. SETUP: Weaker grip, neutral shaft lean BACKSWING: Steep shoulder turn (lead shoulder down, trail hip up). With some leaning tower DOWNSWING: Close face on way down with wrist bow. Go “up” with lead side to eliminate too much shaft lean. 7i Swings Overall very good session. Was really able to build off of success yesterday. Decent setup. Grass was wet, was guarding against slipping. I’ll make sure ball is farther forward next time. Happy with shaft lean at impact. With 3 hybrid-Misses were not duck-hooks or slices. They were high hooks. I’m making progress. Next session I will move to clubs higher than 3H.
    • It’s not. “THE” ball is defined separately. Thus it supersedes other definitions. The club you’re using to hit the shot isn’t “an object” either or you wouldn’t be allowed to set that down behind the ball either. Hell my putter has little lines on it. Oh no, objects that help with alignment. What’s frustrating here is that you cited “spirit of the rules” and yet you seem to try so hard to ignore not only the “spirit” (which doesn’t exist) but the rules as actually written.
