RecruitPKB: Simple Short Game Drill

This is by far the most productive, true to real golf, short game drill you can practice. It is also one of the simplest ones. This was always a part of our weekly drills when I played at Furman and it made a huge difference in my short game confidence. Our coach would set it up for us and give us a target score.

RecruitPKB: Etiquette on Visits

Many junior golfers have been taking advantage of the summer months by scheduling unofficial visits with college coaches. This is a great time to catch a coach in their office or visit a campus while you are out traveling for tournaments. Below are a few things for both junior golfers and their parents to keep in mind. For junior golfers: Leave your cell phone in the car. To keep you from even being tempted to check your phone during the visit it is best to just leave it in the car. Look the coach in the eye and firmly shake their hand when you walk into their office. Sit up straight in the chair. Don't slouch and slump. Be enthusiastic. Make sure the coach knows you are excited to be there. Ask questions. The worst thing you can do when I coach asks if you have any [...]
