Default Re: Furman to discontinue men's golf program

As a furman alum and avid golfer, that saddens me greatly. I had lots of good friends who played golf there not to mention Brad Faxon. The women's program has been more successful but it makes no sense to cut men's golf except due to title ix but at a private school is title IX enforced? The basketball team is about as successful as the golf team and I would honestly bet that a majority of big donors care more about golf than other sports except maybe football...

Furman is becoming more and more concerned about money than ever before...tuition is skyrocketing...oh well guess my donations to purple tee club will end...the more I hear out of Furmna, the more I realize it is no longer the place I attended

...of course our most famous sports alum is a soccer player and at least we have lacrosse, lol...what a ****ing joke...create one sport and cut another

Tough to argue with that one, but I would put Sam Wyche up there also. Brad Faxon graduated the year before I got to Furman, but I always followed his career on the PGA. This is a real disappointment.

Furman also just started their first season ever in D1 Lacrosse...which is by far the fastest growing sport both at the college...from a new program standpoint...and youth level.

Selvy certainly has the biggest record held by a furman athlete but I think that Clint Dempsey has much more fame. There are also many accomplished female golfers in the past so maybe my opinion is biased by who is famous today...so you may be right!

Title IX applies to any institution that accepts any type of federal funding. I have no clue about how Furman is funded, but I would bet there's some federal money coming in somewhere.

I read about a case concerning high schools in, I think, Pennsylvania where a private high school that accepted no federal funds was subject to Title IX because another school in the district accepted federal funds. Going on that precedent, the public schools in the SoCon would subject Furman to Title IX by association regardless of how Furman is funded.

From what I cam tell, it is to fund the lacrosse program, though they won't outright admit it...

Did you play at furman or go somewhere else?

Golf program being reinstated....good move, but I wonder how long it could last...not a great recruiting tool

Its all title IX. I don't care what they say, Instead of cutting the golf program now, they cut funding of the baseball program.
