Mitt Romney was slow in releasing his tax returns in 2012; when he did release them, it revealed nothing of interest, and the rumors about what he was hiding quickly fell by the wayside. In reality, the worst thing that could happen to Donald Trump in releasing his tax returns now is that they would confirm what people already assume, based on the extensive investigative reporting on his financials, his foundation, and his business connections. He doesn't have anything to lose; he's just too vain to capitulate.
I'll check those out. Thanks
I kind of thought that placing well in those type events would actually hold more weight than high school golf from what I have seen this year. The matches mean nothing, in my opinion, because there is no scorer and MANY of the players cheat. It came out in districts and regionals who had cheated during the year though. They had scorers with each group there. Kids that were posting 40s on 9 during normal match play were posting 120s in the 18 hole district tournament and regional tournaments.
Location added. Sorry about that. I will check into that as well. I know in Nashville, which isn't far, Brandt Snedeker has a junior tour that I am thinking about getting Jacob playing on next year as well.
Well, the main concern is getting into college period. Golf is just going to be a bonus if he can play. Obviously, a scholarship playing golf would help tremendously. The last suggestion you made is my primary plan, but the help of a scholarship could also add more options for an even better education than some local schools.
College education is the most important thing with golf being a plus. Having a career to fall back on in anything is the top priority because I'm obviously not counting on a PGA tour career or anything...haha. But scholarships could help with money, which could in turn allow him to go to an even better school and get an even better education. I'm just thinking ahead. I want to be able to give him the best opportunity that he can get at an education and a prosperous career. That is my main concern.
@Groucho Valentine jogged my brain a little when he said to pick a college (first) that has a golf program your son likes (second). For just about everyone, the college education should be the primary basis of selection. A golf scholarship certainly could skew the choice, but the education, finding the right field, the right general location, they all have to come ahead of the golf. Golf may pay for some of it, but its the education that's going to be most important when his college days are over.
