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....
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.
Exemption Star System (effective 5/17/13)**
In order to exempt Phase I of the 2019 Q-School Tournament, you must earn NINE (9) Exemption Stars. For 2019, we’ve classified the stars into CATEGORIES based on the qualities we expect to see from our golfers. However, players may earn their stars across any/all categories and are not required to demonstrate complete balance, though we encourage them to do so.
The STARS CATEGORIES:
Service (1 star)
Conduct (1 star)
Core Academics (1 star)
Work Ethic (1 star)
Participation (1 star)
Performance (multiple star opportunities)
This is the one category in which golfers may earn multiple stars, within limits; all junior tournament accomplishments relative to a field must be viewed OVERALL, not within age groups.)
One Time Stars:
The following may be achieved for a single star UP TO THREE TIMES EACH:
Double-Star Earning Opportunities:
Triple-Star Earning Opportunities:
Four-Star Earning Opportunities:
**The Coaches reserve the right to consider any request for a star that an exemption candidate may make. However, a golfer may only submit TWO requests for special consideration, and, whether successfully appealed or not, that is the limit on the number of player appeals. Players ONLY are responsible for logging in their stars in a timely manner in the logbook on Coach’s desk. Stars must be claimed within 21 days of being earned (72 days over the summer).
