Admirably, Tyler Stahle based his college selection on educational quality and chose Villanova.
Understandably, he was dejected when told that walk-ons were not invited to try out for the golf team.
Resolutely, Stahle did not give up the game he loves. He turned to an unheralded avenue that deserves immense respect for resourcefulness: The National Collegiate Club Golf Association.
“Definitely, it’s an organization that has provided a lot of opportunities for golfers to play,” said Stahle, who grew up in Andover, Mass., and lives now in the Philadelphia area. “(At Villanova) we had A and B club teams and had about 115 students to choose from.
