Do you have a Plan for your Tournament Schedule for the year?
After more than 15-years of involvement in Junior Golf, we know which tournaments are the “Must Play” tournaments and how to assemble a Tournament Schedule that helps you achieve your goals – and saves money.
How to get better at tournament golf?
Play in tournaments regularly. At least 1-tournament a month.
The “best” schedule is be between 20 and 30 tournaments a year. (Don’t Panic! It’s not as much as it sounds.)
As you improve, we recommend that you:
- Play tournaments to improve at “Tournament Golf”
- Enter Tournaments that will increase your National Ranking
- Enter Tournaments you KNOW you should win
- Enter Tournaments in which a Top-5 would be a solid result
- Enter Tournaments that college coaches watch
- Enter Tournaments playing against the top players in the Southeast
IMPORTANT: Play a lot of different golf courses – with all types of greens and fairway grasses. You have to get use to all types of conditions – hot, cold, windy, rain, wet course, etc.
A well planned Tournament Schedule will get you ready to deal with “expectations” and “pressure.”
You want to reach the point at which playing in a Golf Tournament is “normal and comfortable” and doesn’t make you “nervous” other than, perhaps, on the 1st Tee Box. But once the tournament round starts, you are focused, relaxed, and making good decisions.
We recommend a tournament schedule that has a good balance of State-Level 1-Day Tournaments, affordable 2-Day Championships, Regional-Level Tournaments, and Qualifier Tournaments that provide Exemptions to enter National-Level Championship Tournaments. You can reach the highest levels of Junior Golf and not have to travel outside the State of Alabama very often.
