Scottsdale, Arizona, United States: Troon is promoting May as ‘Player Development Month’ at Troon-affiliated daily-fee golf courses, private clubs and Troon Golf Academies.
Troon facilities and Troon Golf Academies throughout the United States will be hosting golf clinics in May designed for all levels of players, new through advanced with 2019 marking the eighth year that Troon has recognised May as Player Development Month.
The theme for 2019 Player Development Month is ‘20 More Yards’ presented by AMPD Performance, FlightScope and Troon Golf.
A competition will be held for students attending the Troon clinics utilising the FlightScope Mevo launch monitor to determine the ‘biggest gainer’ over the course of the month. The ‘biggest gainer’ across all of the participating locations will receive a US$500 Callaway Golf credit, while the second ‘biggest gainer’ will receive a six-month AMPD on-line programme.
“Through fun programmes and initiatives such as Player Development Month, we continue to have success in growing the game at all levels,” said Tim Schantz, President and Chief Executive Officer, Troon, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“Since 2011, we have introduced thousands of new golfers to this wonderful game through fun, affordable and educational clinics at Troon facilities. It’s a testament to our wonderful associates and instructors for going the extra mile to grow the sport,” he added.
