Last week Director of Instruction John Budwine paid a visit to the University of South Carolina with his student Doc Redman. Doc has been taking lessons from John for 2 years. The trip to USC was a recruitment trip for Doc. Doc is being touted by schools such as USC, Auburn, Virginia, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech, and NCSU to play his college golf. The amazing part of this story is that Doc is only a Sophomore in high school at Leesville!!!
