Golf, destination les Universités américaines

<p>Since I was 13 years I have dreamed of becoming a professional golfer and I am going to do everything to make this dream come true. So my plan is to continue my studies in an American University, whilst playing at a high level in the university golf team. This should enable me to fulfil my ambition of becoming a professional golf player.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>In my opinion American universities are the best means of advancing and progressing in my academic and sporting life. I intend studying for a sports degree whilst simultaneously representing my university in the golf championships. This experience will aid development my golfing skills and will enable me to become a professional golfer. The time spent in an American university will allow me to discover a new culture, a different way of life and a new language. All of these changes will help me develop personally, physically and will give me the mental strength and fortitude that is necessary in professional life.</p> <hr /> <h2><strong>THE PROJECT IN DETAIL</strong></h2> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>I want to attend an American university to study sports with a particular focus on golf. Golf has a very important place in American society, and this is replicated in American universities. Whilst being a student there, I will benefit from the very best facilities and will experience the very best training methods. For the duration of my studies, I will be mentored by a number of coaches who will ensure that my training will be of the very highest level. Access to weights rooms, covered golf training areas and a variety and varied golf courses will hone my golfing skills</p> <p>As a member of the university team, I will participate in the frequent inter-university tournaments are organised throughout the year. This will be give me the opportunity to compete against the best players in other states or regions. My individual ranking will, as a result, improve and should allow me to participate in the American or the British Open Amateur Championship. Attending an American university and specialising in golfing sports studies is a recognised way into the professional world of golf. Many of the best players, including Tiger Woods and Jon Rahm, in the PGA Tour have followed this route.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <hr /> <h2><strong>PREPARATION STAGE BY STAGE</strong></h2> <p>Since I have been in my final years of study in lyc&eacute;e Emmanuel Mounier &agrave; Angers, I have made choices that so that I could achieve my dream of becoming a professional golfer. Initially I thought I was faced with two choices;</p> <p>1) stopping my studies after finishing lyc&eacute;e and to concentrate 100% my training ; 2) continuing my studiesand putting my dream if becoming a professional golfer on hold</p> <p>=&gt;Then I realised that if I applied for Sports Studies in an American University I had found a solution which would allow me to continue my studies whilst still playing golf. Since passing my Baccalaureate in July 2018 I have committed everything to enable me to study in America.</p> <h3><strong>Golf Preparation</strong></h3> <p>Since September I have engaged in intensive training, 6 hours per day on average. I follow a programme which has been devised by my golf coaches to help develop all aspects of golf including swing, putting and golf courses.</p> <h3><strong>Physical Training</strong></h3> <p>Every morning I train for one hour to develop my core strength and improve my breathing. In the afternoons, I train for 1hour 15minutes in the weights room. Through this regime, I have gained 8kg in weight and improved my strength and muscle development. This has given me considerable advantage over my competitors. I have also gained endurance and stamina. I am to play several tournaments and golf courses one after another and on occasions, I have played 2 x 18 hole courses in one day.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <h3><strong>Material</strong></h3> <p>I have invested in golf clubs which have been adapted to my swing and this has allowed me to be more competitive.</p> <h3><strong>Competitions</strong></h3> <p>From April until May I will be participating in big prize competitions to allow me to improve my ranking.</p> <h3><strong>English</strong></h3> <p>I am learning spoken and written English to allow me to study in the Unites States. I am also studying for the TOEFL and SAT, which are compulsory exams required for entry into English speaking countries. I have also enrolled in &lsquo;Wall Street, English.&rsquo; This is an English course with teachers and it involves 2 hours of study per day, 6 days a week.</p> <h3><strong>Partners</strong></h3> <p>To give myself the best chance of securing a place in an American university I have acquired the services of golf coaches to help develop my physical&nbsp; and mental strength. I also enrolled with an agency which should help me find American universities which are best suited to help me realise my dream of becoming professional golfer.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p>

Allocation of funds

<h2><strong>What will the crowd funding be used for?</strong></h2> <p>To enable me to realise this dream, in 2018, I have already spent &euro;12,000 on coaches, clubs, competitions, agencies, English courses and examinations. Universities in the United States are not free and the tuition fees are very costly. The universities that I am hoping to attend cost between &euro;30,000 and &euro;40,000 per year. Thanks to my level of golf, the universities will give me a grant of approximately half of the fees. To pay the second half, I have taken a student loan and am supported by my family. This leaves me with a sum of between &euro;3,000 and &euro;6,000 per year to find. This is why I am appealing to you. Donations given through crowdfunding will help me pay my university tuition fees and will allow the possibility of me staying in the United States for the 4 years necessary to pass my Bachelor&rsquo;s degree.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <hr /> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>My Partners</strong></h2> <p>They have helped me :</p> <ul> <li> <h4><em>Sport and golf</em></h4> </li> </ul> <p>ASGAP [Association sportive du golf d&rsquo;Avrill&eacute; la Perri&egrave;re] -&nbsp;</p> <p>Maxime BAUDRY &ndash; Coach mental</p> <p>Isabelle LAVIE, Maxime TR&Eacute;MAS &ndash; Les pros&nbsp;du Golf d&rsquo;Avrill&eacute;</p> <p>Guillaume LE GROS &ndash; Pr&eacute;parateur physique</p> <ul> <li> <h4>Professionnally</h4> </li> </ul> <p>Val&eacute;rie DUCRET &ndash; Graphiste</p> <p>Estelle JOLLIVET &ndash; Formatrice</p> <p>Alice MARY - &Eacute;tudiante en licence information communication</p> <p>Marion OTT - Architecte, Designer</p> <p>PORKEPICOPIES [Imprimerie, travaux graphiques,&nbsp;reprographie] - <a href=";no_sequence=1&amp;code_rubrique=38150900">1 rue Aristide Justeau I 49100 ANGERS</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Wall Street English (Thibault GAUTIER et son &eacute;quipe) - centre de formation d&rsquo;anglais</p> <ul> <li> <h4>Family and friends</h4> </li> </ul> <p>Patricia et Jean-Louis A. ; Fran&ccedil;oise et Olivier C. ; Fran&ccedil;oise et Daniel C. ; Morgane D. et Thomas C. ; Pierre-Etienne D. et Marie C. ; Marion O. et Louis C. ; Marie et Micka&euml;l C. ; Maryse C. ; Philomena Grace D. ; H&eacute;l&egrave;ne et David G. ; Julie, Pauline, Romain G. ; Claire L. ; Guillaume et C&eacute;cile M. ; Reine et Roger P. ; Emmanuel M. ; Estelle N. et Dorian H. ; Elsa N. ; Caroline et Shaun N. ; Catherine et William N. ; Anita et Didier P. ; &Eacute;liane et Antoine S.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p>
