For junior boys looking to play college golf, this is spot on. Having grown up competing in the DFW metroplex, I have a lot of experience with the competition. I was a solid player and was recruited to play Division 1 golf. There are so many things a junior needs to learn, and the biggest is humbling himself to be open to going wherever is best for his golf game rather than going to a school with the biggest, most recognizable name. There are plenty of great lower D1, D2, D3, or even NAIA schools that would be way better for someone to go to than a high end D1 program if he isn't going to get much playing time. In the end, you have to go somewhere you will play with teammates who will push you. Take a team in D2 that is winning over a low-ranked D1 team that doesn't have a great culture for excellence.
