I keep hearing this statement.  'If you are good enough, the college will find you.'

You better be really really good.  One of my kids who had 8 straight tournament rounds of par or better in fairly big events had zero interest or offers until I called in a few favors and got him some meetings with coaches.  He ended up with two offers from top 10 D2 programs and some mid major D1 interest.


I'd suggest being proactive when the time comes.  Doesn't mean be annoying and spam them.

Dan,  if it was up to you would you prefer a kid attend a top tier D2 program or lower tier D1?

D2.  The top D2 teams are can win D1 events and do.

If you are top 80 and have a minus scoring differential, they will find you.

Means absolutely nothing.  Not binding even a little bit but may give them an advantage when it's time to sign because they were the first to "offer".

Source area of players reflects patterns of college recruiting in general.

A NAIA school in our area had two players from Northern Ireland. One graduated, and replacement* showed up. The coach doesn't recruit Europe - but he does have a solid link in Northern Ireland.

At a school I once taught at, we had about 130 students a year from Oman. It's not like the school recruited the entire southern Mediterranean basin - but it did have a solid connection with Oman. (The Omani sheikh sponsored an Omani Cultural Week each fall at our school).

I would look at the student golfer mix from a 10-year period to determine what pattern of recruitment a golf coach had. A one-year snapshot doesn't say much about trends.
