I am an avid golfer and a senior in high school and capitan of the golf team. I am around a 4 handicap and have a lot of potential (been playing seriously for about 3 years). So I want to play college golf and will most likely get into my first choice school without golf on my resume. When I told the golf coach at the school that I was interested and asked him if there would be tryouts he responded:
At this time, I have received commitments for all my open rosters spots for the 2007-08 year. Because of athletic department policies, I am limited to the number of players I can carry on my team. Since I anticipate having a full roster for next year, I would not have the need to conduct walk-on tryouts.
My question is, is the coach serious, or does he just not feel like getting involved with a player he knows little about. It seems like I should be able to at least practice with the team my freshman year before playing in the tournaments… What do you think?
