Do You Know the Rules of Amateur Status?

Article by Nicky Goetze

If you’ve been pursuing college golf for any length of time, you’ve likely heard about the importance of following the rules related to recruiting, academic eligibility, and amateur status. Junior golfers who want to play college golf should be aware of the key rules and timelines that must be fulfilled. Visiting the The NCAA Eligibility Center and the previous Going to College article, What is the Purpose of the NCAA Eligibility Center?, are two suggested resources to get you up to speed.

But, let’s talk a little more about amateurism. As I work with junior golf families, I’m often asked whether it’s permissible to receive reimbursements for competition-related expenses, to accept prizes in tournaments, or to take advantage of free equipment provided by golf manufacturers—and these are just a few items creating uncertainty.

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.

So with the exciting possibility of playing college golf, think about creating your Junior Golf Scoreboard Golf and Academic Resume.

Woo-hoo!

The Mental Game is Authored by Michael Riggs

Junior players love the praise of their parents.

Think about how many times a youngster says, “Hey mom, look at this,” before she rolls a putt toward the cup. It is always fun to watch the beam on a young player’s face after a successful shot. While kids love to be successful, even more kids love to be recognized by their parents for their efforts.

The time will come, soon enough, where the end result will be the yardstick for success or failure. In an adult world, the outcome seems to take front and center. Did you make the sale or not? Did you complete the job or not? Did you win the game or not? But, for young golfers, this should not be the barometer of their success.
