The Youth Golf Experience officially kicked off on June 4th at The Villages Palmer Legends Course. Local PGA Professionals took the time out of their busy schedules to provide timeless knowledge and guidance to our youth golfers by allowing them to participate in skill-building activities followed by a round of golf and a clinic put on by the head professional, Wade Martin. "The Youth Golf Experience is a unique opportunity- mixing golf skills with other fun activities for all skill levels from beginner to experienced. Our youth golfers enjoyed spending time with and learning from other PGA Professionals along with all of the other activities."- Wade Martin, PGA, Palmer Legends Country Club Academy Instructor.
Children between the ages of five and seventeen came out to enjoy learning from the best instructors, to improve their golf game, and most importantly, to have FUN! It is an incredible experience for these youth golfers to work directly with PGA professionals because it allows them to see how the game of golf can not only be a hobby but a life-changing career path.
“It was such an inspiration to be able to teach these kids, as well as the PGA professionals sitting next to me, a simple breathing exercise that can be used in everyday life and in golf. It is such an honor to be a PGA member and to have this forum and format to be able to share ideas and techniques throughout our community.”- Phillip Jaffe, PGA, President and Founder of Palmbird Putter Grips.
