Congratulations to Carly Carter and Christine Cho who were selected for the Idaho Junior Tour Travel Team to play in the North Pacific Junior Ladies golf tournament. This event, administered by the Oregon Golf Association, is like the Curtis Cup Matches for Amateur women which is known for friendly competition between the United States, Great Britain, and Ireland. This year the event will be held on May 25th-27th at Rock Creek Country Club in Portland, Oregon.
Carly and Christine have participated in my elite junior golf academy, since they were 12 years old. Both are now freshmen in high school and have progressed into my Strive for Excellence program. This program is designed to prepare them for the demands of college golf. Juniors aren’t just coached on swing mechanics in this program. They are required to participate in a golf specific fitness program which is managed by fitness professional, Casey Crowell. They are taught about accountability and taking ownership of their game through various assignments such as goal keeping, journaling their practice, and recording their tournament stats.
I am very proud of Carly and Christine. They are not just incredible players who have no limits to what they could accomplish in golf. They are, more importantly, fine young women who will be outstanding representatives on Team Idaho in the Idaho Junior Tour Travel Team (as freshmen)!
