    1. Be REAL good
    2. Play in high profile summer tournaments/events
    3. Do everything he/she can to make sure as many college golf coaches as possible know who he/she is.

    HS golfers can do that by using my services or by doing it by themselves. They should...

    1. Put together a powerful resume/profile
    2. Make a good skills footage tape
    3. Email college coaches
    4. Send stuff to college coaches
    5. Call college coaches

    That would be a good start. The golfer should also have reasonable expectations regarding at what level they can compete in college.

    I have helped 4 HS golfers. 1 is playing at a D@ school in Florida, another is playing at an NAIA school in Tennessee, adn the other 2 are no longer playing in college.

    Fill out the questionairre on the school your interested in's website. The coach will usually send you a letter and in a lot of cases in golf, they will encourage you to visit. On college golf visists you usually a play a round with the coach. If your good, you will get noticed. Don't get the shanks on your visit! Also, play in as many tournaments as you can. In particular try to qualify for an AJGA event with the best junior golfers in the country.

    Heard he is a dandy. Seems he is playing well and as a soph one of the better players in the country as well as the great state of Ky. College coaches better line up early to have a chance to get him.

    Chase is a dandy player. He will be a junior this upcoming high school golf season. He's been working real hard on his short game the past few months.
    Look for him to make some noise and get lots of attention in the next couple of years from Colleges and Universities.

    I know Chase very well. He was a younger player at my club when I was in HS. He has a great game and most of all he likes to play the game. I was a pretty good golfer myself, and I can tell you that he has great potential. He has won numerous tournaments and was the KGA player of the year last year for his age group.

    He is a good young man, and I wish him the best. I don't think he will get burnt out on golf like I did, because he likes to practice. Good luck Chase! -- from the Guv!

    Call St.X coach Marty Donolan. He has more boys playing D-1 than any other school in the nation(fact). I am sure he would help you out.
