Michael J. Smith is the founder of Fore College Golf. As the former captain of a Division-I Golf Program and someone who has experienced junior, college and high-level amateur golf both inside and outside the ropes,  Mike is well-qualified to help junior golfers and their families navigate junior golf and manage college placement.
