The PGA of America has been making huge strides in its efforts to engage and retain young golfers, who of course, are the future of our game. At the PGA Junior Golf Camps, each summer we witness more and more kids who are enthusiastic about golf and who want to become a part of the game. And that, to us, is pretty exciting stuff,” said Haddad.

The camps’ curriculum is based upon its “PGA Progression Development Tract” which guarantees skill development in the game’s fundamental areas including full swing, putting and chipping. Additionally, the tract also places emphasis on the development of “life skills” such as good sportsmanship and embodying personal integrity both on and off the course.
