We kicked off our IJGA Summer Academy Experience with a bang by welcoming students from all over the country and all over the world. Junior golfers from the various First Tee chapters across the nation joined us in Hilton Head for the golf training experience of a lifetime. Week one began on June 15, 2015.
With a “work hard, play hard” motto, juniors put in plenty of hours on the course each day, often in intense heat, and focused on growing their game. After working on everything from course management and putting to mental training to fitness, juniors took advantage of the area’s various forms of entertainment. During the week, juniors, residential instructors and coaches celebrated the summer experience by using the hashtag #IJGASummer and sharing their fondest memories.
Here are some of our #IJGASummer Photos of the Week:
