John Darling
Title: Class "A" PGA Golf Professional
Recommendation: Austin is a competitive athlete with his main goal in athletics is to play collegiate golf. Baseball and golf are his passion. This is the first year he will play on his high school golf team realizing he can play golf at the next level. His academic goals are very aggressive.

Let me list his tremendous attributes:
• Academically extremely strong with great grades and work ethic in school
o Goes to an extremely strong academic high school
 Canyon Crest High School, San Diego, CA
 Ranked #2 in California and #19 in Niche’s public school ranking
• He is very goal oriented and competitive
o He will be the #1 man on his team when the season begins in February
o Unbelievable drive and determination
• Has great leadership qualities
o Captain of baseball team both as a freshman and sophomore
• We have developed a game plan of training and working out that will rapidly increase his scoring ability. Presently in the mid to high 70’s.
o Has played on a very successful high school baseball team for 3 years
o Played little to no golf during that time
o This game plan of big time training and commitment is attainable because of his desire to become a solid collegiate player that can help your team become better as a team.

His change in direction shocked and upset his high school baseball coaches as he is an integral part of their team. His drive and determination rubs off on all who watch him practice and devote time in becoming a very good collegiate golfer.

Along with my credentials of developing junior golfers I also am the varsity golf coach for the Poway High School Titans. He would put our team as one of the top 3 teams in San Diego. That is how much I think of him. When we play his team it will be a great match as he adds so much to their team.
