It has been a busy summer for me and I'd like to take a moment to celebrate reaching 300 new private lesson clients since I started teaching at Oakmont Golf Club in Santa Rosa and Foxtail Golf Course in Rohnert Park last Spring. Wow! Thank you so much for being part of my growth! In this time, I have co-founded the Oakmont Junior Golf Academy, taught junior summer camps and started a PGA Junior League Team at Oakmont! Our junior golf programs are thriving at Oakmont, and I am so pleased to grow our programs with my fellow LPGA Professional Jessica Reese Quayle!
And there is more to celebrate! Last month I received two nominations from our LPGA Western Section: one for Professional of the Year and another for Teaching Professional of the Year. I have never been nominated before, so I am proud to share this news with you, as you have all helped me develop as a teacher and coach. Thank you!
In other news: My website has a new look- one that I feel is more aligned with the kind of coaching I offer. To improve as a golfer, we have to grow both externally in skills and technique AND change internally to match how we see ourselves on the course. It doesn't matter if you have the best mental game on the planet if you have not honed your skills to match. And it doesn't matter if you have the prettiest swing on the range if you keep mentally sabotaging yourself when you play. What I offer is a holistic approach to golf improvement, one I hope translates to other areas of your life too!
Tomorrow I will be heading to North Carolina for the LPGA Teaching & Club Pro Division National Championship. It is being held at Mid-Pines, which is a course I've heard lots about and am looking forward to playing! You can follow the tournament on lpga.com. Play will start on Monday! This is my second tournament of the year, and I am looking forward to having some fun on the course with my fellow teaching professionals from around the country!
That's it for now! I hope you are staying cool this weekend and I am looking forward to seeing you soon.
