The coaches at the IMG Academy golf program have kept a busy schedule this summer. Over the past three months, the coaches have attended more tournaments than ever before, traveling all over the world to attend some of the most prestigious tournaments in golf.
Senior Instructor, Larry Marshall, started the summer off by traveling to Illinois in the first week of June for the State Farm Classic. His next stop was Sylvania, Ohio where he attended the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic. After that, Marshall and IMG Academy Leadbetter golf program Director, David Whelan, both headed to the U.S. Women's Open (Bethlehem, PA) and they just returned from their trip to the RICOH Women's British Open, where IMG Academy Leadbetter golf program student, Catriona Matthew, won the tournament after posting a score of 3-under-par.
Those two are not the only ones doing all the traveling. Shane Reiser, Admissions Director/Coach, has gone to Korea to talk to prospective DLGA students and was the keynote speaker at the Optimist International Junior Golf Championship in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Reiser gave a seminar on collegiate golf and the recruiting and scholarship process that goes with it.
Several other coaches have had the opportunity to represent the DLGA at tournaments throughout the summer. Coaches have traveled to California to visit the Callaway Golf Fitting Center, attend an American Junior Golf Association tournament, and to go to the World Juniors that took place at Torrey Pines.
"The coaches have gone to show support to our current students playing in the various tournaments," says Tracy Reiser, Assistant Director of the DLGA. "We want to spread the word about the DLGA. We are forming some great relationships with tournament directors, which is very important considering a lot of our students are playing in so many of them."
