New Jersey Golf Foundation at Met Life Stadium

MetLife Health Expo 020

NBC 4 New York & NY Giants Health and Fitness Expo

I volunteer teaching time with the New Jersey Golf Foundation from time to time.  The Foundation is the charitable arm of the NJPGA and its focus is to work diligently to give people, across the state, their introduction to golf by offering free lessons, instilling the values associated with this great game, and most importantly, proving that golf can be fun for people of all ages and backgrounds.

This past weekend the Foundation was invited to take part in the NBC4/ NY Giants Health and Fitness Expo.  The NJPGA set up their travel nets in one of the end zones and a SNAG putting course on the 10 yard line.  The opportunity to get on the field at Met Life was to one I will never forget.  I  once got on the field at the old Meadowlands.  During my 8th grade year I was selected for an all-star soccer team that played before a Cosmos game.  It was a thrill then and it was a thrill on Sunday as well.  To get on the field that the Giants and Jets play on and to teach golf to so many people just as happy to be there as I was really made the day special.

My wife and I believe it’s important to take these opportunities to give back when we can and teaching golf is a way that I can do that and show my own kids that a gift of your time is just as important as any other present you can offer.
