Timmy Gannon is a talented 2021 golfer with a well-rounded game. He consistently scores in the 70s, with several rounds at or below par. Timmy plays a very strong schedule and counted eight top-10 finishes during 2019. His victories included the Western Carolina Championship (71-73) and the TYGA Sandhills Championship (68). Timmy’s reliability starts off the tee, where he averages 285 yards and finds 70% of his fairways. He consistently hits about 70% of greens in regulation. Timmy also considers his putting (32/round) to be a strength. He continues to work on improving his short game by practicing 4-5 days/week. I saw Timmy hit a couple great bunker shots to save pars during his Western Carolina win. Timmy completed a strong freshman season by finishing third at the conference meet (74). During his sophomore campaign, Timmy averaged a 74.5 on his way to 1st-Team All-Conference and an individual spot in the State Championship, where he finished 12th. He is also serious about his academics, taking a challenging course load at Charlotte Country Day School. Timmy is looking to extend his golf career because he loves the energy of competition. I know he will be a wonderful teammate and a reliable player for years to come. — Jon Feyen, ScoutU Carolinas/Virginia Head Scout, 920-979-3093, Jon@ScoutU.com It is a privilege to write on behalf of Timmy Gannon, a young man that I have helped with his game for several years. Having done this for more than 40 years, I have to say that I have never spent time with a finer young man. Timmy has done a nice job with his game. His scores continue to improve, as does his ability to control the ball and produce distance. He almost always scores better than he hits it, which is common among good players. He putts and chips well and has good confidence in most every part of his game. Though he realizes the need for improvement and is very committed to getting better, his attitude allows him to enjoy competing and the process of improving. All of which leads me to the strength of Timmy Gannon. He is exceptionally bright and as fine a young man as you will be exposed to. I have yet to hear him make a negative comment about someone else, which will make him the ultimate teammate. He will be a terrific leader and be the most valuable team member as he will raise the attitude of everyone around him. The scores and videos will give you a good feel for his game, and I’m always happy to answer any questions. Timmy is able to play all the shots and has no fear of playing them during a round. Having said that, his mental strength will separate him from the field. There are so many good players to choose from, but none will be a more positive influence on your team than Timmy Gannon. Thank you for the consideration. — Scott Davenport, Head Golf Professional, Quail Hollow Club, Charlotte, NC, (704) 724-5992, email@example.com
MESSAGE FROM TIMMY
My name is Timmy Gannon, and I am in the 2021 class at
Charlotte Country Day School in . I’m a hard-working student-athlete who is extremely coachable, and my goal is to play college golf at a school that will challenge me academically. My scoring average is 73, and I had eight top-10 finishes in junior tournaments in 2019, including victories at the Western Carolina Championship (71-73) and the TYGA Sandhills Championship (68).

I have also volunteered at the First Tee of Greater Charlotte, working with 5 to 7 year-olds on their golf and life skills. These activities have taught me valuable skills in time management, teamwork and leadership.
In addition to my high school season, I play in various AJGA, Tarheel Golf Foundation and Carolina Golf Association tournaments throughout the year as highlighted by my tournament results. Thank you for considering me as a candidate for your golf program. I am confident my skills can be an asset to both your university and team.
