A few years ago, one of my graduating seniors shared this with me for what how she felt when she looked back on the recruiting process.

“I feel like I grew up so much through this process” – High School Senior

At the end of the day, there is no guarantee for finding the perfect fit, or even a college golf fit period. There are a lot of factors and pieces that have to fall in place just right for that to happen.

But if you’re willing to fully embrace this process and not expect it to be easy, then you will learn so much about yourself and develop skills that will go far beyond your golf goals.

Many times when the process seems easy, then college golf will hit you with a major reality check because I can guarantee you that college golf will be tough!

Use these experiences now, the times of rejection, the times of uncomfortableness, the times of doubt, the times of pressure, to make you more prepared for the future.
Don’t hide from them.
Don’t expect someone to make it easier for you.
Don’t miss this opportunity for growth, grit, and maturity.
