I hope this finds you well and that you have had a productive and prosperous golf season thus far this year.
As we head into fall, I wanted to remind you of two great opportunities coming up to be able to connect with fellow T&CP members. Not only will you be able to catch up with friends, but also play some golf, learn new things to help elevate you within our profession, and also earn some additional CUs in the process.
First, there is the Midwest Section Pro Pro and Education Seminar at Aberdeen Golf Club in St. Louis, Missouri on September 11-12th. MW Section member, Maria Palozola does an outstanding job in putting this event together each year. I especially enjoy helping with the LPGA*USGA Girls Golf Clinic.
New for this year is the addition of the education seminar, featuring two very qualified presenters, with segments on BodiTrak, a pressure-sensing mat and Common Orthopedic Conditions and Injuries for Golfers. I use BodiTrak at my golf school and am looking forward to this presentation. I know we (and our students) have some golf related aches and pains, so it will be interesting to hear that presentation as well.
Next, there is the 2016 LPGA Extravaganza in Las Vegas on October 29 – November 1st. Now who doesn’t want to go to Las Vegas!
This event provides a Stroke Play tournament, Pro Am, and Conference featuring “Women at the Top of Their Game” (and that doesn’t just mean golf)! An amazing group of speakers has been assembled for this conference.
In addition to an overall winner for the Stroke Play event, the MW Section will also recognize the individual with the lowest score representing the MW Section!
A lot of hard work, by numerous members and T&CP staff, has been done to put together these events for our membership. There is something for everyone at each event. Whether you participate by playing as an individual, on a Pro Am team, or attend the education segment; be proactive and support your MW Section and the T&CP.
These events are for YOU! It makes no difference how old you are, how long you have been a member, or if you feel as if you have already served your time and that it is now time for the younger generation to take over. Try and tell that to LPGA founder Shirley Spork as she continues to participate in T&CP functions. It is still your LPGA, too! “Represent” for our MW Section and for the future of our organization.
I will be there, and I hope to see you as well!
