Tiffany Tsai's Hard Work Pays Off, Her Performance Results in an NCAA D1 Scholarship

In the summer of 2023, ACA’s female golf student-athlete Tiffany Tsai began a remarkable journey. After a round of the U.S. Amateur Open, her excellent performance garnered the attention of several spectating college coaches, leading to immediate full scholarship recruitment offers.

At the CT Pan AJGA International Pathway Series, Tiffany first achieved a tie for eighth place, and the following week she placed third, with scores of 76-72-36-34, +2 (over two nine-hole rounds), securing full AJGA status. She then participated in the IMG Academy World Junior Championship, advancing to the second round of competition on July 12. ACA’s CEO, Jim, personally attended the event at Torrey Pines. The presence of numerous top D1 college coaches interacting warmly with Jim provided an opportunity for ACA’s competitors to quickly obtain interview or visit invitations.

Eventually, Tiffany won the 15th FCG Callaway World Championship in the U.S. with scores of 72-64-65, totaling 201 strokes over three days, finishing 11 under par. By then, ACA had negotiated generous full scholarship recruitment conditions with more than twelve U.S. college teams for Tiffany. However, these achievements were not coincidental but the result of perfect planning, groundwork, and cooperation between Tiffany, her family, and ACA.

Last summer, in 2022, ACA arranged for Tiffany to attend a golf camp, which already sparked interest and interview invitations from several coaches. By mid-April of the following year, three schools had offered her full scholarship recruitment contracts. However, believing that Tiffany could find even better and more suitable placements, ACA asked her and her family to remain patient, focus on her academics and golf, and entrusted the recruitment process to ACA.

When Tiffany delivered top performances at the U.S. Amateur Open in July, everything fell into place. Coaches who were initially just observing began to focus their recruitment efforts on her. ACA quickly expanded the list of schools offering full scholarships to thirteen and took advantage of the situation to arrange school visits.

Among several discussed options, Tiffany and her family ultimately chose the University of South Carolina, which ranks fourth in the nation for women’s golf, making her a ready-to-play member of the Gamecocks. This decision was made possible by the complete trust and authorization given by Tiffany and her parents to ACA, facilitating seamless communication and aligned goals. This allowed Tiffany to focus on her golf and academics, leaving everything else in the capable hands of ACA.
