  1. After a year or two of coaching my college golf team, I came up with a challenge for them, as they would make too many stupid mistakes on the par fives in particular, and on too many par fours trying to hit a hero shot when they got into trouble. The challenge? It's simple: don't make a six (or higher). Despite many, many rounds in the 70s or low 80s, and 75 rounds played in total, we have still only had about seven successfully completed rounds. I almost never have a six. Greater than half of my rounds are played without a six. I'll take a bogey on a par four, and I rarely boge
  2. This is just from my perspective as a college student. The fact that most public golf courses don't offer college rates is baffling to me. I've proposed this to the head pro of the municipal golf course and found his reasoning for not offering it to be flawed. In part of his reasoning of why he doesn't want to extend the rate to Afternoon and Evening Times, he said along the lines of: "Why would we want to cater to you guys? Our course is open to anyone, and they're welcome to use it at anytime". But this is only true if you can afford it. The authors from "Sociology of North America
  3. I posted this to my college team on Slack today, but thought it might benefit some of you to read and see this type of stuff. Consider this my top five list of things that college players can generally do a LOT better to shoot better scores. These don’t ALL apply to ALL players, but… they all apply to all of you as a group for sure. In no particular order, the errors I regularly see: 1. Full swings almost all the time. There’s tremendous benefit and control from hitting partial shots inside of even 160-170 yards. You take off a little spin, hit it more solidly, and control dist
  4. PGA Tour Working On Program to Provide Access For College Stars | Golf Channel The PGA Tour might soon have a new feeder system – college golf. Two quotes stand out to me. … and… Making the leap from college to the pros often happens at a terrible time of year. Either you bail on your team mid-way through the season (in November or thereabouts), or you are stuck trying to make it as a pro with status on no Tour after the NCAA tournament in May.
  5. Just say what you want after you answer the poll. I have degrees in French, medicinal chemistry, and computer science. Though I still use my CS degrees, and my scientific background (both daily), they're not really close to what I "do" most days.
  6. I have been enthralled with the Golf Channel's coverage of the NCAA Championships for the last several years, and I imagine this year will be no different. This year, they are hosting it at Eugene Country Club (just off the campus of the University of Oregon). For those who haven't watched, here's a quick rundown of the format: Days 1-4 - 72 hole individual stroke play to determine the individual National Champion, as well as (and more importantly) the eight teams who will compete in the team match play finals. Each team has 5 players competing and the 4 best scores for each day count
  7. Well, the college team I coach shaved seven strokes off our score last year (637) to shoot 630 and win our conference (AMCC - Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference - http://www.amccsports.org/), a ten-team conference of NCAA Division III teams. The boys won by 11 strokes over 36 holes (less than 1.5 strokes per player per round) and have won the AMCC's automatic bid the NCAA National Championship next May at Mission Inn Resort at Howey-in-the-Hills, FL (just northwest of Orlando). The title is Penn-State Behrend's sixth straight (eighth total) and my second in a row. This year, we
  8. So for some back story I had played a little golf here and there up until januaty 2016, it was my junior years golf season start and I wanted to be good. I was a 100s golfer in 2015 and these were my 2016 results thus far 101, 98, 95, 93, 93, 90, 87, 91, 85 each new score is one week later and new tournament. I have started practicing everyday and now work at a golf course and have improved vastly (partly thanks to my swing coach Mark Gray I highly recommend his website www.theprozone.net) as of today my handicap calculated from April 25th to may 22nd is - 7.4, today I played 9 holes and was o
  9. Not sure if any of you guys are keeping up with college golf, but the Men's regionals are underway. Today was day 2 of 3. The top 5 teams from each region will advance to the National Championship Tournament being held in Eugene, OR. You can keep up with the current scores from each regional on Golfstat.com. I'm watching the Stillwater regional closely since that is where Clemson is. Clemson currently sits in 4th place after a tough start yesterday, but they bounced back today and are in pretty good position heading into tomorrow.
  10. Scott0305


    My name is Scott. I'm about a 2 handicap and play as often as I can. I say that because I've been in the airforce for 4 years since I graduated highschool and have 2 years left on my enlistment. I plan to get out after that and go to school using my GI Bill. I've been looking into play college golf but there's not a lot of information about people in my situation. Basically I've gathered this: I'm eligible to play, I don't really need a scholarship(GI Bill for that) but that I don't have any kind of resume for my playing ability. I've worked hard at my game to get to a 2 handicap, and I think
  11. http://www.vice.com/read/talking-to-american-debt-dodgers-who-moved-to-europe-to-avoid-paying-off-their-student-loans-111 So, the debt problem is getting bad, and some people are moving to Europe to dodge their educational debts. I had student loans, but paid them off years ago when I re-financed the mortgage on my house, which (except for a 0% interest loan on a car), is the only debt we carry. And it'll be paid off ahead of schedule, and is financed at a pretty darn good rate itself.
  12. My men's golf team won the AMCC Championship this past weekend with a two-day score of 637 (keeping the best four out of five scores). That works out to 79.625 on a fairly difficult layout at Avalon Lakes Golf & Country Club. ALGCC is a Pete Dye course that, like many Pete Dye courses, is very target-golf oriented. Dye seems to love to use visual trickery to goad players into going for more than they can handle. Sure, it rewards the long drive into the very narrow alley way between water and bunkers, but it punishes a slight miss more heavily than the reward of being 20 yards closer to th
