Junior Golf in Calgary

Hello friends, golfers, parents and juniors!

Junior golf is the key component to keeping our game healthy and strong for years to come.

Golf Canada has recently released Iphone and Ipad apps to assist coaches and parents in the instruction and guidance of junior golfers. The concepts here are products of extensive research, and a large amount of the content will be beneficial for any sport, for anyone, at any age. There are numerous activities for golf that can be done inside during the winter, with the appropriate equipment.

Ages 4-15 Learn to Play App

Ages 14-18 Learn to Compete App

  • If you are a junior and fall into these ages, please download the apps and use them.
  • If you’re a parent of a junior that either plays golf, plays a sport, or just wants to be better at stuff, please download and use.
  • If you’re an adult, but you wonder why kids can beat you at golf, please download and use the app.
  • If you’re a gym teacher, volunteer, aunt or uncle, coach or just want to learn more about how golf is taught, download and read when you have a chance!

These lay the groundwork to become a winner. To set yourself apart and break barriers in your own golf game, you’ll need a customized approach to your specific needs, wants and desires within the game of golf. Use these apps to solve what golf problems they can, and call me for the rest.

PGA of Alberta Teacher of the Year Finalist 2012

Hello friends,

I am proud to announce that I have been nominated for, and now a finalist for the PGA of Alberta Teacher of the Year 2012! I feel very honored to be a finalist, but more excited for my students. I have gotten some tremendous feedback this year, some huge successes and improvements. I learned so much about my own philosophy, teaching style, goals for my career and motivation to continue playing competitively.

When I learned that I was a finalist, my first thoughts were who to thank..how typical.. But seriously, that’s what it was. Then I truly realized how long that list would be, even if it only pertained to my golf teaching career.

If you didn’t make this list, do not panic. It means you are either one of hundreds more people that have helped me progress and succeed in this game, or your role is more important than worrying about being part of a list.

Thanks all for helping me.

Cheers!
