"Coaches care where you are from; in men’s golf 80% of the players ranked above 400 in their class signed at a school within approximately 400 miles of their house. In women’s golf 82% of Division 1 players ranked above 250 signed within 400 miles of their house.

Academics matter to Girls: 80% of girls in the top 100 chose a top academic school like Michigan, Pepperdine, Wisconsin, Penn or Yale."

I was hoping you'd expound on your post.  Anyone can link an article and quote from it but providing applicable information to the group is what we are here for.

Snell Golf balls are just as good as ProV1’s.

Not sure I'm agreeing with the 400 mile thing.  Mike Small at the University of Illinois (the only program that's a consistent winner there) has of their 9 players, 2 from Belgium, 1 from CA and another from AZ.

Oklahoma State has 2 players from Norway and another from VA and 1 from the Republic of Texas.

people in south don't like to go north for school because of weather and worse competition

and people in north complain about grass in south and think schools in north are better

also I think college coaches are more familiar with players close to their school

Will agree with the last statement but the first two are broad generalizations like the 400 mile scenario.  Considering your screen name and the threads you start, it seems as though you have a daughter or son who is gifted in golf.  Care to share more of the story?

More than 58% of college students attend school within 100 miles of home with 30% of those attending less than 25 miles from home.  Less than 11% attend school more than 500 miles from home.

https://www.washingt...m=.f256f84e240a

The data in the GolfWRX article is right on par with college attendance patterns for all college students, not just the ones who play college golf.

Those kids going to those schools arenít ranked above 400.  The quote was about players ranked above 400.  Meaning if you are going to a smaller school or going to be providing depth rather than starting at a top program their going to look local.

I don't like to talk about myself

besides, some in this forum would be able to identify me if I gave some hints (they would be surprised)

Talk about your daughter or son and not about yourself.  

Based on your screen name I'll share a story about a round with a Tiger Mom.  We live in a nice area and there is serious competition to make it on the local high school team.  They'll have 100 kids try out for 10-15 spots and if you're not shooting in the 70's, there's not much of a chance of making the team.  Any hoo, paired up with 2 old guys like me and a 13 year old whose Mom followed with notebook in hand.  She said very little but recorded every shot and the results.  She marked distances, etc.  She basically did a book report on his round.  He hit 13/14 fairways, something like 15 greens and shot a 71.  Such a nice kid, too.

As we walked up the 18th fairway, I asked what she thought of Tommy's round.  She said "Tommy not play very well, he miss a couple putts and should have shot 68."  

I played OK for myself that day and shot 81.  I asked her what she thought of my round and without missing a beat said..."You suck.  You have ugly swing and should take up bowling."

What she missed in tact she made up with fact.

I was just going to ask how these stats compare to regular students.
