What Should Junior Golfers Do Before Their High School Years To Start Pursuing College Golf?
Article by Nicky Goetze
If your child is still a year or more away from high school, college is likely a distant thought. Kids grow up quickly though, and the challenges of finding the right college to attend will begin soon enough. Perhaps the biggest challenge will be finding a school that provides the proper setting—one that will support your child as a student and as a golfer.
Fortunately, the difficulties presented by the search for a “best-fit” college can be reduced. Getting a head start on several key action items during your son’s or daughter’s middle school years will allow you to effectively guide your junior golfer toward a fulfilling college golf future.

Most, if not all, of what you need to reach your playing potential has already been created, marketed, and is readily available to you. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel… just get it rolling along.
Great players know how to make the best use of their time and resources. Players on the fast track to reaching their potential become masters at using other people’s ideas and techniques and simply incorporating them into their games.
As a matter of pure time availability, it would be impossible to personally experiment and figure out everything you need to know about proper equipment, effective diet and nutrition, course management, and swing mechanics. Great players are great copy cats.
