The PGA of America is looking for student golfers with an established USGA handicap to pair up with PGA professionals for a one-day teaching event. This unique teaching tournament attracts the best coaches within the PGA and promises to help you with your golf game.  This is a great opportunity to have a PGA professional to serve as your own personal coach and caddie for the day.  The teachers themselves do not play.  Students win prizes, coaches win prize money based on how well his/her student performs.

Each participant receives a 2 hour private lesson to begin the day.  The lessons are designed to meet each person’s individual needs.  The lesson is then followed by an 18 hole playing lesson on a championship style course.  A box lunch and an appetizer reception will be provided.  A follow up lesson with your coach at his/her facility following the event is also included, (if available).  We’ll conduct a silent auction and raffle to help support the PGA Foundation.  Space is limited to 60 students with an established handicap.  Bring a friend, make your own group!  We hope you will join us again!  Please email your name, phone number and GHIN as soon as possible.

The entry fee for each student as low as $345.
This includes a box lunch, two hours of instruction on a beautiful all-grass practice facility, an 18-hole playing lesson from the best teachers in the game and a gift bag, prizes & appetizers from our sponsor.   Please come and support your local PGA Professional and the Tee Off Together Foundation.  Proceeds benefit your local PGA Foundation.  For additional questions please contact:  Tim Johnson, PGA (310) 489-0898
