GOLF

Putting worries Corpus

Carl Corpus has his eyes focused on his life after college.

Mainly on his crosshairs, the regional tours. And farther on the horizon, the PGA.

The graduating student at San Jose State University took time from his busy schedule to guest at Noli Eala’s Power and Play.

But while doing his studies, Corpus is occupied harnessing his talents, something that he will rely heavily upon graduation.

One of his areas of concern: Putting.

He’s got the smarts to sharpen that often undermined aspect in golf by doing four-foot putts 250 times per practice.

That’s on top of his driving range and fairway log-ins that usually take six hours of his time daily.

Corpus is the reigning individual champion in the Januarius Fil-Am Invitational in Baguio City later this week.

He will miss it due to a conflict in schedule.

As a golf scholar, he shares an apartment with teammates and follows a strict regimen that begins at 5:30 a.m. and ends at 7 p.m.

That involves workouts, practice and schooling in between.

Corpus also enjoys the guidance of a sports psychologist who takes care of the San Jose team.

The same mental coach handles former Olympic medalist, National Basketball Association players and the Stanford collegiate squad.

“I text him (coach) every week, more about setting goals and the mental process before we hit the ball. And what goes through our minds when we face obstacles,” he said.

Corpus is hoping his school makes it to the regionals and nationals after posting victories over favorite schools like Pepperdine and Stanford.
