Our Top 3 Tips For Getting Recruited In This Sport

  1. Play and national tournaments to create a resume of significant accomplishments. Your handicap is not as important as your tournament scoring average and results.
  2. Create a swing video that can be sent to coaches like the ones found here.
  3. Keep your grades up—as a non-money-making sport, golf coaches are especially concerned with recruiting academically minded athletes.

“Prospects should always be trying to qualify for the US Open, the US Amateur, and the US Junior, as well as all of their state championships. Beyond that, my opinion is that young people should just compete. There are so many options out there today for kids and their families that if you are competing, shooting low scores, and beating people coaches will find you.”
– Andrew DiBitetto, Head Coach of University of North Carolina
