College Highlights: University of Tennessee 2008-12

Played for a NCAA Division 1 collegiate golf team against many of the highest ranked amateur golfers in the world. The Tennessee programme (ranked regularly in the top 50 in America) is one of the most highly rated and regarded programmes in the United States. It requires self-motivation, dedication and a balanced lifestyle between golf and study. The programme consists of physical training early in the morning, followed by classes until midday and finally perfecting aspects of golf every afternoon including Saturdays. The ultimate aim of the Tennessee programme is to produce professional tour golfers. Personal Tennessee golf profile available at http://www.utsports.com/sports/m-golf/mtt/porteous_garrick00.html
