What Letter Will You Write to Your Younger Self
Article by Nicky Goetze
Today, I'd like to share a letter I recently wrote to "my younger self", my "junior golfer self" of 30-plus years ago, with advice I wish I could time-travel to tell him.
I've been fortunate (in my past) to achieve success as an AJGA junior golfer, Division I collegiate player at Clemson, and even as a tour professional in Canada and Asia. But, I'm certain sage advice from my experienced "older self" would have made my journey in golf as a youngster a bit smoother and likely more successful.
Prepare like a Champion to be a Champion

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.
