What Can You Learn from College Golf’s Post-Season Championships?
Article by John Brooks
As the college golf season wraps up with the Men’s NCAA Division I Championships and the busy summer season begins for junior golf families, it’s a great time to reflect back on the recently held post-season championships and to use these results to help you determine your “best-fit” list of golf programs.
For both men’s and women’s competitions, all NCAA Division I, II, and III Championships, along with the NAIA, NJCAA, and PGA Minority Championships, can be followed and researched online at golfstat.com. Over 250 collegiate teams and nearly 1,500 individuals competed in these season-ending championships during 2016. You can also review results from the earlier conference and regional championships to study a more inclusive list of teams and tournament scores.

This was open to both members and non-members of the Iowa PGA Junior Tour. For Junior Tour members this was the second Major point event on the schedule. There were 121 players that participated in this event!
Connor Neighbors from Cedar Rapids shot a first round 64 (-7) from the White Tees (6107). This is a course record for this tee box at TPC Deere Run!
The Mental Game is Authored by Michael Riggs
The relationship between a player’s optimal level of arousal – how revved he is – and performance is one of the most studied, and difficult to pinpoint, concepts in the field of Sport Psychology. Each golfer has an optimal state of mental stimulation that allows him to think and feel “ready” to play. If the golfer is under-aroused, less than peak performance may be the result. Conversely, over-arousal can lead to a sense of panic and feeling “out of control.”
As is true with all aspects of the mental game, learning to recognize different states of beingis the first, and thus, a critical step. It is important to become aware of how “keyed up,” “ready,” or “mellow” you tend to be when you are playing your best golf. Each player has a different level of optimal arousal; therefore, each player needs to be self-aware what that level is in order to “go” there to play his best.
