What a great 4 days in Golf.  I met with so many old friends and enjoyed watching Mike Shultz win his award for 2012 Golf Professional of the Year!   I attended the PGA Show with my childhood friend Andrea Dornin- Kellar. Andrea  is a golf instructor in Minnesota and is good friends with Mike and Diane Shultz.  It is great to see good people get recognized.  Along with catching up with many friends, I attended some of golf’s best educational seminars and have more ideas for my students for the upcoming season!  I enjoyed hearing the LPGA will now play in an event similar to the President’s Cup.  The event starts in 2014 at the beautiful Tom Fazio designed Caves Valley Golf Course near Baltimore. Tom and I are shown here in the photo.  In 2016, the event will be held in Chicago at  Rich Harvest Farms, host of the 2009 Solheim Cup!   That is exciting news for the LPGA Tour.  I also visited Mike Bender’s Golf Academy.  It is one of the best designed golf academies and shows us how the best are training the next generation of golf superstars!  I practiced a bit along side the “kids” and am so excited to bring those concepts to my teaching in Pittsburgh. I’m hoping we get rid of this white stuff and I’ll keep looking for that Green Grass up here in the North so we can get started!
