New Year, New Semester

By | goals, teammates | One Comment


To start this new year off, I decided to launch my website and with it, this blog. I am currently on the golf team at Florida State University and I am a junior. My goal is to turn professional after I graduate and in the meantime, I will blog about my journey.

The best part about coming back from break was seeing my team for the first time in a month! Everyone was literally scattered around the globe; Laure was in France, Carlton was here in Tallahassee, Anna was in Columbia, Kayla was in Pensacola, Matilda was in Finland, Olivia was in Norway and Sherrill was in South Florida. I am happy to report that each and every one of us had a fantastic and rejuvenating winter break. We all hope to follow the footsteps of our football team, which is entirely possible as we are hosting Regionals at our home course. Having a home course advantage will be nice, but we still have a lot of work to put in until then. When we start practice on the 13th, we will have about four months to prepare, improve and plan. Personally, I will be grooving some swing changes and working on my short game. Practicing up and downs is never wasted time.

Beyond golf, I have some interesting finance courses this semester (Investments and Short Term Financial Management) and plenty of community service in mind. One of my favorite things to do in my spare time is to give back. Almost every week you can find me at the Tallahassee Miracle League, playing with the handicapped children in the area.

Please feel free to follow me on Twitter and Instagram (@AlexMilanGolf) and offer suggestions on future blog content. And look for the first edition of Technique Tip Tuesday written by my swing coach Nick Panebianco to be up soon!
