In 2022, the SNJGA teed off a new travel team process of selection and ongoing training. The goal is to give the kids the best experience and also put them in the best position to compete with the top travel teams around the country in different competitions.
The members of the SNJGA Elite Travel team have been selected:
“This new process will allow our teams and our players to be more competitive internally and build a closer bond with each other as we move throughout the year and head into the travel season next year,” says SNJGA president John Hawk. “In the past, kids would head to the course and compete against each other in a tournament and then, all of a sudden, we send them to the travel team events and they are expected to play together cohesively. The new process will also allow them to be coached and a team atmosphere will be created. We want to get golfers physically, mentally, and emotionally ready to represent who we are at the SNJGA and also help the golfers perform at their best because these events are high profile and college coaches are watching results.”
PGA of America professional Karl Larcom will serve as a travel team assistant and work with executive director Renee Rocco and Hawk.
