JUNIOR GOLF CLINIC WITH SYMETRA PROS

Here are some more images from the Junior Golf Clinic held Tuesday, May 30, at Zoller Elementary School in Schenectady with the First Tee DRIVE after school program. Three Symetra Tour pros: Lauren Kim, Alex Milan and Alexis Keating spent time with the students teaching them some of the basics of the game and how they go to where they are.

The Junior Golf Alliance of NY will be holding more events in the coming days to help grow the game. More volunteers are needed to facilitate. If you are interested, contact Frank Ciarlo at juniorgolfalliance@gmail.com or 518-207-6758.
