IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus was quoted in Sports Illustrated saying, “How many 22-year-olds ask anybody for advice?” He was impressed about the surprising trend of young PGA Tour players visiting him in search of tips. Who do you look to for advice outside of your parents or coaches? Have you ever thought about reaching out to a former player in your community for a tip or two? Whether you are 15 or 22, you are never too young to keep learning. Seeking advice from someone older that has experience in your sport could give you a different philosophy and viewpoint on how to improve your game!
