Do College Golf Camps Provide a Recruiting Edge?
Article by Nicky Goetze
I’m sure you’ve heard of college golf camps. As a parent or young player involved in the world of junior golf, camp brochures and emails have likely been sent your way. Camps have become increasingly popular over the years, and many quality options are available to suit your needs and preferences.
For example, junior golfers can attend camps at a favorite college or university. Exposure camps featuring multiple coaches are often attractive. Even “experience” camps, which include travel to amazing golf destinations, offer a memorable combination of fun activities, practice, and play.
Your Golf Identity
Article by John Barnes
I recently saw something wildly entertaining and amazing. It was a YouTube video of Dustin Johnson (The #1 golfer in the world, yes THAT Dustin Johnson) hitting a series of trick shots. Frankly, one does not have to be a golfer to find this video amazing. You may remember (if you are old, like me) the Nike commercial of Tiger Woods bouncing a ball off the face of his wedge a number of times, then popping the ball up and hitting it out of midair. Well, this video of DJ makes that Tiger video look elementary.
In one sequence, Johnson CHANGES CLUBS while the ball is airborne, THEN hits it a mile out of midair. The finale is him holing (not just hitting) two chips simultaneously, a wedge in each hand. Check it out: YouTube Dustin Johnson trick shots.
Too Cold to Play Golf?
Now is the time to finalize your Golf & Academic Resume!
Do you have aspirations of playing golf in college? Is your goal to obtain a golfing scholarship to help defer the costs of college? What if you have a great tournament but all there is are your name and scores? Are you making it difficult for a coach to know more about you?
Getting a coach's attention is about two things: visibility and making it easy for the coach to contact and follow you. So ask yourself, how does a player develop a proactive strategy that helps his name stay on a coach's short list of recruits for his graduating class? By presenting yourself professionally and being as visible as possible.
