Junior InstructionInstructing juniors is a privilege and can be the most rewarding aspect of being a golf instructor. My philosophy with juniors is to be a mentor coach teaching them fundamentals and growing knowledge of Their game and the overall game of golf. However my primary goal of teaching juniors is to teach life skills and strong character traits. Their success in golf will be a direct reflection of these values.
