Scott Schulte and Juniors leading the way on the Pratice Tee!!!

We all know changing bad habits is a hard thing to do and that's way its so critical to instill good habits from the onset.  With that in mind, today's post gives me great pleasure to write.  Recently, we have been distributing and posting handouts around the club about the proper divot pattern to employ when using our practice tee.  The pattern illustrated below is entirely about promoting quick recovery of already used areas of the practice tee.  Given the size of our range tee, and if everyone does their part, we can have great turf from which to practice from all season long...

I am truly excited to see that Scott Schulte, Assistant Golf Professional, has taken this message to heart and has begun working with our juniors imploring them to lead the way.  I think you'll agree the photos below demonstrate the great progress that is being made on this front.

 Hey, Andrew Fox, the camera is over hear.  Perfectly done though!

Jo Jo Paglino and Jimmy Rauh cool as cucumbers next to their pattern!!!

A great thank you is owed to Scott for his efforts and to each of these juniors for taking to the instruction and leading the way.  Now we just need to get the Adults to follow suit!  I am asking the children to carry this instruction to their friends and family so don't be surprised if the next time you are out practicing with your son or daughter you hear "you're doing it wrong mom or dad".
