Chris Haack Golf Camp
June 3 - 6 & 7 - 10, 2018
The purpose of the Chris Haack Bulldog Golf Camp is to provide each student with the basic and advanced techniques of competitive golf while still having fun. Learn from some of the Bulldog players and coaches what it takes to be a golfer in a top collegiate program. Campers will be using the team practice facilities and team locker rooms of the 1999 and 2005 NCAA Champions.
Completing his 21st season at Georgia, Chris Haack has been named National Coach of the Year twice and SEC Coach of the Year five times, has led the Bulldogs to two national championships and eight conference championships and has captained the 2002 & 2006 United States Palmer Cup Team. Haack made history in 2001 as the first coach to ever have all five players named to the NCAA All-American Teams.
Your Golf Identity
Article by John Barnes
I recently saw something wildly entertaining and amazing. It was a YouTube video of Dustin Johnson (The #1 golfer in the world, yes THAT Dustin Johnson) hitting a series of trick shots. Frankly, one does not have to be a golfer to find this video amazing. You may remember (if you are old, like me) the Nike commercial of Tiger Woods bouncing a ball off the face of his wedge a number of times, then popping the ball up and hitting it out of midair. Well, this video of DJ makes that Tiger video look elementary.
In one sequence, Johnson CHANGES CLUBS while the ball is airborne, THEN hits it a mile out of midair. The finale is him holing (not just hitting) two chips simultaneously, a wedge in each hand. Check it out: YouTube Dustin Johnson trick shots.
Do College Golf Camps Provide a Recruiting Edge?
Article by Nicky Goetze
I’m sure you’ve heard of college golf camps. As a parent or young player involved in the world of junior golf, camp brochures and emails have likely been sent your way. Camps have become increasingly popular over the years, and many quality options are available to suit your needs and preferences.
For example, junior golfers can attend camps at a favorite college or university. Exposure camps featuring multiple coaches are often attractive. Even “experience” camps, which include travel to amazing golf destinations, offer a memorable combination of fun activities, practice, and play.
2018 Masters Drive, Chip and Putt Contest
As the 2018 Masters quickly approaches, so, too, does a special tradition at Augusta National Golf Club that annually takes place on the eve of the Tournament. On Sunday, April 1, 80 boys and girls will participate in the 2018 Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals, where they will live out their dreams of competing on the same grounds as their favorite players and Masters champions.
The National Finals are broadcast live on Golf Channel, and we hope you enjoy sharing in the fun and the inspiration these talented young players bring to those who love the game of golf.
Too Cold to Play Golf?
Now is the time to finalize your Golf & Academic Resume!
Do you have aspirations of playing golf in college? Is your goal to obtain a golfing scholarship to help defer the costs of college? What if you have a great tournament but all there is are your name and scores? Are you making it difficult for a coach to know more about you?
Getting a coach's attention is about two things: visibility and making it easy for the coach to contact and follow you. So ask yourself, how does a player develop a proactive strategy that helps his name stay on a coach's short list of recruits for his graduating class? By presenting yourself professionally and being as visible as possible.
