New Jersey Golf Foundation Women’s Golf Day at Black Oak GC.

Monday I worked as a guest golf instructor at a Women’s Golf Day that the New Jersey Golf Foundation was sponsoring.  The NJPGA has a charitable arm that always looks for different ways to grow the game of golf in New Jersey through  different avenues such as Golf in Schools, Play Golf America Days and Special Olympics.  I was among 16 other PGA Golf Professionals who participated in teaching the 80 or so women at the Black Oak Golf Club in Long Valley NJ.  Bryan Jones the host Instructor/ President of the NJPGA set up a program and learning stations at the course so that students could all move around the practice facility and work on putting, full swing and short game skills. 

Out of my group of six women all but one had played before.  The novice was anxious to learn about what the clubs could do when they were held correctly and moved in conjunction with her body.  Together we were able to get the ball airborne and towards her target.  The other five players were all friends and played together before in the past.  There was no one person who was shy about expressing their thoughts and reactions to my teaching theory.  The afternoon went by fast after a great lunch  hosted by the club and the 90 minute golf instruction.  Unfortunately the winds, clouds and lightning picked up and the rains came shortly before we could get on the course to play.  So naturally the program continued in the clubhouse with wine tasting starting a bit earlier.

I was impressed with the drive of all the attendees to keep golf at the top of their list.  Keep swinging.
