  • Thomas Nelson golfer French signs on with Bellarmine

    You’ve heard of a gym rat.

    It describes a basketball player who spends countless hours practicing shooting, ballhandling and other fundamentals, mostly done when there is no one else around.

    In a golfer’s term, it’s the same as a range rat.

    That’s the player who spends countless hours on the range, pounding ball after ball, from driver to pitching wedge, perfecting a swing and trying different shots that one might encounter during the round.

    But it doesn’t stop there.
