Andy Newman - GOLF CONSULTANT
"At United Sports USA we are very selective about the standard of male and female golfers on our golf scholarship program. This enables us to achieve an unrivaled level of funding for our players in an environment that they are going to be successful. With 13 years of experience I am here to provide professional support to students and parents during the selection process and beyond. It can be extremely daunting process when deciding where to spend the next 4 years of your life. I monitor all of our players during their 4 years in America and provide valuable support for them. It gives me great satisfaction to see all the hard work come to fruition when our clients begin their new life as a student athlete - playing golf, studying towards a degree, and growing through the life experience this oppotunity provides. I would encourage any young golfer to look into the college scene in America, what a great way to spend 4 years at university."
