Practice with a purpose
Encourage players to start a notebook of their practice and track their progress.
Goal oriented drills are a great way to prepare the junior golfer for college golf and help their game in the process.
Time management skills are number one factor coaches say incoming freshmen struggle with followed by a lack of work ethic and structure.

Recruiting begins as early as seventh and eighth-grade for top 25 programs and may end before junior year begins.
Help them develop a narrow plan of action to make the most of their time and resources.
Building a resume
Resume needs to be clean simple and easy to access and navigate.
Include tournaments resume academics upcoming schedule awards activities references high school and contact information.
Have it available online and as a hard copy.
Trackman or Flightscope numbers are great.
Create swing video
Players need a good quality swing video that is accessible to coaches.
It needs to be clean and professional approximately 2 to 3 minutes.
A variety of shots and angles need to be shown with a short introduction of yourself.
Introduction should include your name, city, state, and graduating year.
Hybrid, fairway wood
Eliminate unnecessary time between shots include slow-motion and some comments.
Contact realistic schools
Players need a standard intro email that includes their resume.
Be realistic in the schools that are contacted.
Playing time as a freshman is important goal where they can be 3rd to 4th man/woman on the team.
It will make players more marketable when they have more schools recruiting them and provide leverage when negotiating scholarship.
