Parents spend thousands of dollars every year on their kid’s golf expenses.  There is travel to events, the cost of events, the cost of a golf coach, the price of new clubs, and the cost of new golf attire and accessories.  It adds up!  But, what are you doing to make sure this all pays off in the form of a golf scholarship?

College coaches will look at the whole picture when evaluating a golfer: grades, handicap, character, but they really don’t mind what tour a golfer wins or scores well on as long as they are winning!

Tommy Canale, RecruitLook Scout, says, “The first thing a college coach ask me when talking about a recruit is ‘How many wins do they have, and how many top five finishes?’ ”  “They aren’t concerned about any specific tour as long as the golfer is shooting good scores,” adds Canale.

Most high school golfers don’t know how to answer this question:  What are you doing to make sure all your training and competitive events pay off?

“I spoke with at least 10 division one golf programs this past week about a few golf prospects. Each coach expressed their support of the RLJGT and how we will help bridge the gap between high school golfer and college golf coach,”  said Canale.

Some golfers won’t play on specific events because they’re afraid it will hurt their rankings. We’ve done extensive research to figure out the rankings that a lot of companies use.  The top finding are this:

1.) Majority of the rankings are determined by the score a golfer shoots, regardless of where the tournament is played and the competition of the field.  A good score is a good score. Period.

2.) A player will not be dinged for playing on RLJGT if they are playing in at least 9 events that are a combination of AJGA, Golf Channel Tour, Toyota Tour Cup, and Future’s Champions. The ranking companies encourage golfers to go out and play in other tours (more tours only helps grow the sport); therefore, playing in anything over 9 events on the aforementioned tours will not affect their rankings while playing on the RLJGT.
