Chris Mullhaupt, now a junior at Ole Miss, spent 3 Â½ years at the IMG Academy golf program. While at IMG Chris was a two-time FCWT All-American and earned five top-10 finishes in AJGA events. Chris graduated from IMG Academy high honors! While at Ole Miss he has had one Top 5 finish, has been named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll as well as the UMAA Honor Roll.
Chris has been back over break to work on his game and here are a few of his thoughts.
Going to IMG was the best thing I have ever done! The lessons I learned and the people I met while at IMG, will stay with me the rest of my life. Being here helped me learn life lessons and prepared me for college. The friends I met at the academy are going to be my friends for life.
The academy life prepares students for college, teaches time management and personal responsibility. I feel the academy instills a work ethic in students that can't be taught elsewhere. The academy offers so many things that are beneficial to athletic success and life success - such as IPI, Game On, as well as the mental and technical instruction. There truly is no other place like it.
Going to college is a demanding responsibility and I feel that due to my time at IMG I am able to handle college life and all the responsibility that comes with it. College life is all about being on schedule. A typical college day for me is workouts at 6:00 AM, then class until 12:00, a short lunch and then practice. What was so good about IMG is that my schedule was very similar which made the transition from high school to college much easier.
All the coaches at the academy are greatâ¦.they are more than coaches! While at the academy my coach was Shane Reiser and he helped me and the rest of the people in the group on and off the course. He is a mentor to me. I feel mentors are very important in life and in sports and that's what all the coaches are at the academy.
I still come back and visit the academy and I keep in touch with all the coaches. The academy is like one big family and it is a great family to be a part of!
