GREENSBORO, N.C. – – Piedmont Triad Junior golfers can learn the game from the best in the business at the Youth Golf Clinic presented by Coca-Cola and Triad Golf Today. The clinic is set for Sunday, Oct. 1 at 3 p.m.; it is free and open to the public.
A PGA TOUR player, who will be determined just prior to the event, will headline the professionals teaching at the free Youth Golf Clinic. In addition to the PGA TOUR player, local PGA Professionals from Rick Murphy’s Carolina Golf Academy and Robert Linville’s Precision Golf School will provide instruction to kids in attendance. There is no age requirement, but most of the attendees are between the ages of five and 15. In addition to the gratis instruction, each child will receive a free goody bag.
“The junior clinic is the first event of the week and the unofficial tournament kickoff,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “It’s become a great event. You have the two best golf schools in the triad teaming with a PGA TOUR player to teach the game for a couple of hours. This event has really grown in the past couple of years, and we’re going to do everything we can to continue to elevate it.”
