|As winter quickly approaches here in Western New York, it seems appropriate to review the year as I have done in the past. The strange thing about this year is that more news continues to come in. More and more students have improved and work in warmer climates and continue to play tournament golf.
Here’s a brief summary of summer event results:
8 Club Champions-Men’s, Women’s, Junior and Senior
Paychex Male College Athlete of the Year NCAA Division III Golf.
2 Players pass PAT and start PGA Apprentice Program.
MCC Hall of Fame Inductee
MCC National Champs and Individual National Champion
RDGA Junior Champion
5 Players in top 20 at New York State Amateur, Ryan Memorial Section Championship and at the Brook Lea Invitational.
College players ranked 2nd in the US for Division II and 4th in the US for Division III.
I gave my first PGA section level discussion on the topic of the D-Plane.
I want to thank Mark Sweeney, from Aimpoint Golf, for coming here and providing the green reading clinic. I’ve added a place for questions about the system on my forum for anyone needing a little review. The other reason Mark came here was to certify me as an Authorized Aimpoint Instructor. I will be holding additional clinics as interest grows and I expect to be traveling around and showing it to other clubs and college golf teams.
As always, I will continue to try and improve my knowledge base and seek out information I believe will help my students achieve their goals. This fall I had conferences in Chicago and Washington DC along with many great teachers throughout the US, Canada and Europe. Slowly but surely my name is getting out there as I participate more and more in these situations.
