What it Would Mean to Gain a College Education

Obtaining a college education would mean everything to me. It will help me get a job after I finish college and allow me to live happily. Also, if I attempted to play golf professionally, a college education would allow me to have something to fall back on that route didn’t work. Furthermore, I want to get a college education to make my family proud. It takes a lot of hard work to balance playing a sport and school, and I want to show them I can do it. College is going to drill into me time management and I need to take advantage of the practice. Having good time management is something I’m working on because I know it will help me later in life. 

In college I plan on studying something relating to business. I’m not sure what aspect of business I’m going to go into, but I hope I will be able to relate it to golf. My golf coach, John Ronis, has done this and used his golf and business experience to create his own golf academy. What he has done has inspired me to learn more about business and to be passionate about the things that I learn. 

Watching and learning about golf my entire life has molded me into the person I am today. The game has inspired me to always be my best and to never give up. Obtaining a college education will prepare me for adult life by providing me with knowledge, time management skills, and the assurance I can succeed in life.
