Port Saint Lucie, FL (Vocus) June 22, 2010
Students at College of Golf Keiser University now hold instructional clinics each Thursday for Port St. Lucie Special Olympics golfers. A recent clinic at the PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance helped athletes improve their putting, chipping, pitching, iron shots, and wood shots in an exciting atmosphere.
Students at the golf college have volunteered their time and the PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance has donated its facility each week for the training. The goal of this effort is to prepare the Special Olympics athletes for the State Special Olympics competition as well as The National Invitational Tournament, which will be held in Nebraska this coming July.
"As one of the leading golf colleges in the nation, we are privileged to be donating our services for such a humanitarian cause," said Dr. Eric Wilson, VP of College of Golf Keiser University. "The athletes we’ve been working with deserve the best instruction to go along with their dedication, and we wish them the best in their competitions this summer."
All students enrolled in the golf academy have full access to the PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance, a 35-acre facility ranked in Golf Range Magazine as one of the Top 100 Golf Ranges. Lessons by professionals at the center are covered in the cost of tuition for the golf school.
Completion of study at the school provides students with an Associate of Science degree with a major in Golf Management. In addition to learning the game, they learn how to manage golf course operations, to maintain golf facilities, and much, much more.
"I’d like to thank all of the students and the PGA Center for their generosity in donating their time and services, and cooperating in our efforts to help the Special Olympics athletes succeed in their golf playing," added Wilson.
