Education, Mentorship and Advising
on the College Golf Recruiting Process


Our Mission is to educate and mentor junior golf families during the college recruiting process and provide them with the tools that will lead to the ideal fit for college, both academically and athletically.

Additionally, we will aim to further the life skills of each player through leadership development, social media training and mentorship.


“Navigating the world of junior golf and college recruiting can be overwhelming.
As a former AJGA staff member and college coach, Rich Brazeau has great
experience towards understanding what it takes to be successful.
Rich is a very professional guy and I highly recommend him.”
— Mark Oskarson, Chief Operating Officer, AJGA
“Rich is an invaluable resource for golfers and parents trying to negotiate the difficult and confusing waters that lead to college golf. He knows coaches. He knows the colleges and the kind of opportunties they offer, and he knows kids and how to evaluate their talent. Put these things together and you have winning combination. We don’t know what we would have done without him. We recommend him highly and without reservation.”
— Angie and Bill Halamandaris, Class of '16
We would highly recommend Rich Brazeau and Second Nine Consulting. He is a great resource for anyone trying to navigate the college recruiting process. What sets Rich apart is his highly personalized approach. To better understand my son’s game, Rich took the time to watch Eric in competitive tournaments, played a round of golf with him 1-on-1, met his swing coach, and reviewed the evolution of his key statistics to better understand the trajectory of his game. Without question, the insight Rich gained from this analysis, combined with his deep understanding of the recruiting process, was essential to successfully identifying and communicating with the golf programs that represented the best fit for Eric.
— The Ganshaw Family


Coach Brazeau has over 10 years experience in college golf, both as a Division 1 player at Seton Hall University and 6 years as a coach, most recently 4 seasons as the Assistant Coach at the United States Military Academy at West Point.

Second Nine Consulting was founded to translate Coach Brazeau's knowledge, passion and insights to junior golf families during the recruiting process.  It has become a more complex web then ever before and Second Nine is here to help guide and educate families so that they can make the best possible decision for their family.
