BROOKWOOD BRONCO GOLF TEAM TRYOUT FORMULA - 2018/2019

All young men/women who want to play competitive golf for the Brookwood Broncos in 2019 should strongly consider participating in a level-appropriate agenda of golf events.

FOR ALL PLAYERS:

Join a junior tour.  Atlanta Junior Golf will open their summer schedule to members for registration in mid-March.  We advise that virtually every golfer who's not swarmed with a national-level series of events participate IN AT LEAST FOUR EVENTS.  Visit their website at www.georgiajuniorgolf.org for more information.

Most of our varsity-level guys will complement their Atlanta Junior rotation with either a Southeastern Junior Golf membership, a Georgia PGA Junior Pass, or will sample national-level junior tournaments.  There are plenty of choices out there, so don't be bashful about surfing around for one that fits your game, schedule, and desired investment level.

FOR ELITE VARSITY PLAYERS:

Must do events this year are....

  • The Georgia PGA Junior Championship
  • The GSGA Junior Championship
  • The USGA Junior Amateur Championship Qualifier

 

VOLUNTARY SUMMER PRACTICES:

On some days, we'll play the courses; on other days, we'll simply stay in at the range/practice area to work on particular golf skills.  Players must be picked up by a parent/carpool person promptly at TBA each day. These sessions will be called by team captains and/or Coach Thompson/Graham/Terry/Sochacki.
