For many players who are in the 13-14 and 15-18 age brackets, preparing to compete on the collegiate level is a top priority. The 2019 FCG Callaway World Championship drew attention from college coaches across the country, with representatives in attendance from Baylor University, Colorado State University, Rutgers University, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Long Beach State University and more.
“We were proud to sponsor the FCG Callaway World Championship this year,” said Stacy Geyer, Senior Admissions Manager at Laurel Springs School, an accredited online private school and one of the event’s premier sponsors. “In terms of preparing for collegiate competition, these families benefit not only academically from our partnership with FCG, but also because they have the flexibility to pursue their golf goals and train for elite events that will help set the stage for their collegiate golf careers.”
