ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – It’s a fun, social and inclusive way for young teens to learn a new sport.
The PGA Junior League hosts golf camps over the summer. Leagues are coached by PGA and LPGA professionals. Much like other youth recreational league sports, students play on teams wearing numbered jerseys.
PGA Apprentice and Assistant Golf Professional, Gerome Espinoza, stopped by KRQE’s This Morning show with a few of his students to demonstrate some of the lessons learned at the camp. Watch above.
Golf students play matches in a scramble format, which reinforces a team concept all while allowing coaches to substitute players every three holes so that all golfers can participate.
This is the second year for the PGA Junior League Golf and it has doubled in size.
Registration is closed as of this year, but interested parents can visit their website for more information.
