The Motor City and its large metropolitan area has a new glowing and growing reputation, thanks in part to TGA Premier Junior Golf (TGA).
It’s a place where the game of golf is growing. Southeast Michigan is one of 57 markets across the country where thousands of youth are in full swing with TGA chapters through its introductory school and community based golf programs.
This couldn’t be more evident than the numbers from the 2016 local Drive Chip and Putt competition in which more than 50 Motor City area TGA students participated, and 14 kids qualified to the next stage. More are expected for the 2017 event.
“I was really thrilled to see so many TGA kids participate in Drive, Chip and Putt this year,” said Dave Robinson, director of TGA of Southeast Michigan. “Some of the qualifiers are experienced tournament players who qualified last year or have had significant success in competitive golf. But some were competing for the first time. We work very hard in creating the pathway for these kids to learn the game and be able to grow with it and become lifelong golfers.”
