Golf World's annual college golf preview package appears in this week's issue. Back again is our traditional "Players to Watch" department where yours truly offers up 50 men's and women's players who I think we should keep an eye on during the 2008-09 season. (If your favorite golfer is missing, don't hesitate to comment below. Some might recall my Colt Knost mishap a two years ago, where he was honestly my 51st guy and sure enough had a standout year.)
Also in the package is the preseason men's and women's coaches' polls for all divisions. Check out where your school ranks. For Division I, the two defending champions--UCLA men, USC women--top the polls.
In the coming days, I'll supplement the package in the magazine here on the blog with conference previews and a more in depth at some of the top rated teams.
