OCTOBER ARTICLE:
LIFE OF A COLLEGE GOLFER
Hello SWG Juniors and Families:

We have many students who are thinking of playing college golf and others who may eventually decide they want to play college golf.

What is life of a College Golfer?
 
Schedule:
The schedule of a college golfer can be hectic in general, but, a freshman is also acclimating to a new living arrangement, new friends and new classes. College golf will  teach a student-athlete how to prioritize and accomplish many tasks in any given week.
 
Example of a weekly schedule:
 
Monday - Wednesday
 6:00 am workouts
                  8:00 am - 12:00pm class
                  1:00 pm - 5:00pm Practice / Qualifying Rounds
           
*Qualifying rounds are rounds of golf where players compete for a position on the upcoming tournament travel roster. Teams generally travel with 5-6 players out of a team of 10-12 players.
 
Thursday: Leave for the weekend's tournament (packed with golf equipment, books, and laptop to keep up with school assignments).
 
Friday to  Sunday: Practice rounds and tournament (arrive back on campus on Sunday evening).  Some tournaments may be on a Sunday/Monday or a Monday/Tuesday.
 
Demands:
            1) Maintaining the University's, Coach's and NCAA GPA Standards;
            2) Attending all classes (apart from travel);
            3) If assignments or classes are missed - Tutors are available from most schools;
            4) Performing on and off the golf course (representing your university, coach, and family).
 
Support System:
You will need a strong support system while attending college as a student-athlete.  Your support system includes family, coaches, professors, tutors, teammates, and friends. 

Sticking with the rigorous  student-athlete schedule may be demanding but will maximize your college experience.  You will graduate with solid time management skills which will make highly desirable to potential employers.
