As June comes to an end and July starts, I am honored to have the privilege to coach junior golfers. While many recreational players in Florida are avoiding the hot and humid conditions of the golf course in the summer, a number of my junior students are in involved in leagues and playing in tournaments. They are even scheduling their vacations around their golf commitments.
Whether it be the JGFA, U.S. Kids or PGA offerings like the Prep Tour and Junior League, my students have chosen to test their skills on the course and play with other young golfers this summer. I am inspired by their dedication and I am awed by their willingness to learn from every experience that is placed in front of them.
Sadly, I cannot be present at so many events to see them in action but I am thankful for the parents who send me pictures and videos. Knowing that they are out playing, having fun and doing their best makes me happy.
