Why are we struggling?

We haven’t been relevant for decades but we’re gradually clawing our way back. The b12 will help.

Yes…but we easily have more National Championships than anyone else in the P5…not even close.

Historically, we are the Alabama of College Golf and we can still add to that

Santiago made the cut at The Mexico Open and is currently tied for 9th at 6 under, 5 back of the lead. Only amateur to make the cut. I’ll be watching today and tomorrow.

Nice write up on Santiago.

Need to get facilities up to date to improve recruiting. Until then nothing will change.
