I haven't been out in a couple of weeks and I am Jonesing for some golf.
Looks like some of you have been tearing it up!
I see a nice trophy, some low 80 scores, some nice $$$ payouts!
Congrats guys and keep it up! Hope to get out this weekend and tear it up myself.
My 14 year old just started playing high school golf this year. At our local school, they don't start until 9th grade. He has been playing off and on for years but never taken it that serious until now. He started off shooting in the 60s on 9, so I had him start working with a friend who is a teacher and he has dropped 20 strokes throughout the season. He worked his way up to #3 on the team. They made it to districts and just played regionals yesterday, but fell just a bit short of moving on. His plan is to work even harder now that season is over with a goal of getting into the 30s by next season.
All of this has lead me to start thinking about college and how to get him noticed. What do you guys think are the best ways to get noticed by a collegiate golf team? What scores/accomplishments does it take for each division for example? And what are the things I should be working on, outside of technique, to help get his name out there? We have a really good college in our hometown and their coach keeps up with the local teams, so that won't be an issue. But I am thinking of the bigger names as well. Thanks
