Hi all - seeking advice.

Daughter is 11 yo, started playing tournaments last year. During the season I had been working with her with range sessions, on course play. we
collect stats and focus on the areas that need the most attention.

Right now it's winter. We are not doing much other than 1-2 times/week hitting some balls.

The plan for the next season is basically more tournaments - Jr PGA, Jr PGA league, girls golf... whatever makes sense.

Longer term goal is college golf... but her academics is still priority #1 (she is an excellent student).

seeking advice for near and long term -

what can we do to improve her golf?
what would bring long term success?
which good schools (academically speaking) give golf scholarships?
what else should we pay attention to?

As far as colleges that give scholarships almost all the top schools outside of the IVY league schools give athletic scholarships and have girls golf team.  I'm not sure which teams are ranked highly at the moment for girls but generally speaking teams in the Big Ten, ACC, and PAC 12 are pretty strong academically as well as on the course.  With improving her game in the short term I would say that 2-3 times a week of practice in the off-season is plenty but its important for her to be an ATHLETE as it will make things a lot easier for her down the road to be consistent and be more in tune with her body to find faults and correct them faster with her swing.  For long term success find a coach in the next couple years that has history putting players into the next level of competition as it will not only help her game but the coach is likely to have connections with college coaches and can put in a good word for her.
