Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful summer full of fantastic learning opportunities as well as some rest and relaxation. I am grateful to those of you who submitted articles for our newsletter this quarter. I know we all love learning about one another, and I invite all of you to share freely and often.

What makes me most proud to be a T&CP Member is how uniquely talented each and every member is that I meet. I am proud to be a part of such of a dynamic organization in which we all share the same vision of growing the game of golf through the very youngest to the wisest! Building relationships with other T&CP members is the best thing about being a part of the leading organization in the golf industry.
Play Days and Meet & Greets
Lynne Hunter, fellow LPGA member from Kenwood Country Club in Bethesda, MD, and I have been conducting Meet and Greets and/or Play Days in the Baltimore/Washington DC area over the last year. We try to have one once a quarter and have had participation that ranges from 4 to 12 professionals.
We’ve had extremely wet conditions in Ohio and now are heading into the hot and humid part of the summer. I am hoping that all of your golf programs are heating up as well. Vice-President Penny Porter is plugging the LPGA-USGA GG organization and I would like to also put a plug in for the organization with which I have been involved for 13 years in Defiance. The junior golfers involved usually start at a really young age and it’s really rewarding to watch them progress into high school golfers and sometimes collegiate players. I recently saw a photo on MW Section member Pat Gray’sFacebook page. There were three golfers from her junior programs who are headed to play collegiate golf. How neat!
I have enjoyed meeting those of you who I have had a chance to speak with the past few weeks. I am looking forward to talking with many more of you in the near future. Thank you to those who have provided pictures and stories for the newsletters! I have gotten quite a bit of information so if you did not make this newsletter, stay tuned!
