Golf Entertainment and Education: Pro Tips for Kids

by JL Lewis on October 3, 2011

On August 23, 2011, J.L. Lewis and Bruce Fleisher were the golf professionals and instructors for the Pro Tips for Kids events, two golf clinics hosted by White Horse Golf Club and McCormick Woods Golf Club, and put on in conjunction with Poulsbo Golf Director and creator of the PuttNTrainer™ S.J. Leonard.  J.L. and Bruce taught two separate groups of children aged 12 to 16. They spoke about golf fundamentals and then watched each junior hit golf shots and gave one-on-one instruction. They taught how to hit a draw, fade, and the proper grip. This was a great opportunity for these up and coming young golfers’ to meet and work individually with veteran PGA TOUR players.  Many of the junior golfers attending were very enthusiastic about golf and had very nice golf swings. Later in the week, several of the participating juniors came to the Champions Tour’s Boeing Classic at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge near Seattle, Washington, to follow J.L. and Bruce during their rounds.

Each junior participant in the clinic received a copy of J.L. Lewis’ book, the  Pocket Pro edition of Golf Tips from the Tour, which includes many helpful on-the-course golf tips that are useful for beginners and advanced golfers alike.

J.L. Lewis and Bruce Fleisher competed together on the PGA TOUR in the 1990s and now compete together on the Champions Tour. They enjoy teaching golf clinics together.
