SUGGESTIONS

 

Practice, Practice, Practice...as much as possible

Take lessons from a certified PGA teaching pro (any local area golf course)

Learn golf etiquette and the rules of the game

Play in as many summer tournaments as possible. Earn a tryout exemption (see below).
 

***EXPECTATIONS:

 

 Seniors (boys shoot 85 or better; girls 93 or better)

 Juniors (boys shoot 90 or better; girls 98 or better)

 Sophomores (boys shoot 95 or better; girls 105 or better)

 Freshmen (boys shoot 100 or better; girls 115 or better)

*** These are NOT requirements, rather generic guidelines to be a part of the Round Rock Golf team. Players shooting above expectations will be evaluated on several factors, primarily the control of the golf swing, which will include driving, iron play, chipping, pitching and putting. Individuals scoring below the expectations are NOT guaranteed a roster spot. Each year, we can accept only so many participants in our program and the goal is to keep the top players in each grade. 

 

TRYOUT EXEMPTIONS (ALL PLAYERS): 

 

Golfers can earn a tryout exemption by playing in any of the following Junior Golf Tour tournaments: STPGA, AJGA, Legends, TJGT, or the equivalent and meet the scoring requirement for their grade level (see expectations above). Exemption comes with meeting those requirements (average score) in at least four 2022 tournaments leading up to summer tryouts. Students must send their coach a link to each tournament score sheet as confirmation. Any student of Round Rock High School that does NOT meet the exemption requirement must take part in tryouts for the 2022-2023 school year.
