Showing your interest in the program you are contacting is a definite green flag in the process. This is certainly easier at some programs if you have grown up as a fan of that particular school/program as opposed to just learning about it but you can still find ways.

During the season you can always reach out about their current schedule and tourneys. Follow their social media. Keep up and follow along! Be excited and interested!

Also, sometimes just showing you are interested in college or professional golf in general can be a green flag. Maybe you watched or attended an event. Or you have some questions. Just your interest and willingness to learn shows them a lot!

But it has to be genuine. Don’t just do it bc you think you’re supposed to, do it bc you’re trying to learn and get better!
