Golfweek has just released its annual College Preview, which dedicates 22 pages to getting golf fans ready for the highly anticipated college golf season.

Golfweek_CollegeEdition2014The Sept. 5 issue not only delivers the preseason rankings and inside stories readers look forward to every year, but also takes a closer look at the game’s talented senior class, which is expected to dominate the leaderboard on the road to the 2015 NCAA Championships.

“The college golf season is upon us, and as always, everybody at Golfweek is really excited to get going,” said Editor Jeff Babineau. “We travel the country covering the college game in print and online as no other publication can, and we relish telling our readers the stories about the stars of tomorrow, players such as Georgia Tech’s Ollie Schniederjans and Mississippi State’s Ally McDonald.

“We think these two seniors are special players, special leaders, and their play this season could have significant national implications for their teams. In eight months, the NCAA Championships will be played a little more than two hours down the road from our Florida headquarters, and we’re convinced that the season that will unfold to get us there will be an intriguing one.”

Highlights of Golfweek’s 2014 College Preview include:

  • In-depth discussions with player-of-the-year candidates Schniederjans and McDonald on why they’re back for their final seasons
  • A “For Your Game” instruction piece that zeroes in on Schniederjans’ unique swing and how he has improved his putting since arriving at Georgia Tech
  • Lance Ringler’s perspective on how the introduction of match play to the NCAA Women’s Championship could give underdogs a better chance at the title
  • The 2014 Golfweek’s Best Campus Courses list, which ranks the top 30 collegiate courses across the country
  • Preseason rankings for the NCAA’s best teams, individuals and leading freshmen

Complementing the magazine’s in-book coverage, is delivering its own College Preview with a complete breakdown of each of the top 30 preseason men’s and women’s teams. Each team analysis includes players to watch, highlights from the previous season, predictions for Fall 2014 and more.

“College golf is a vital part of Golfweek’s DNA,” said Golfweek Publisher Jereme Day. “Our editorial team is on the ground all year long, getting to know the players and coaches to deliver the most complete, authentic coverage of this aspect of the game, and nowhere is that commitment more clear than in our annual College Preview.”
