College cutbacks may see fewer coaches

coming over to Britain to recruit

The global financial crisis hung over the American college golf coaches at their annual convention in Orlando, Florida this week.
Many say they'll be asked to reduce the amount they spend on recruiting, a particular hardship for colleges that have relied on international players to help fill out their squads.
"It's been kind of in vogue to go to the British boys' and British girls' championship in recent years , but I'm guessing that won't happen this year as much," noted one coach.
"The real problem here is that the wealthy colleges will still have the money to go ahead and do it but not so well-off colleges are going to get left behind."
