Scottish-based company Golphin Ltd have announced a landmark partnership with the LPGA which will enhance the junior golf initiatives provided by LPGA teaching and club professionals.
Golphin will display its specialised lines of equipment at the LGPA Regional Pro-Am, Stroke Play and Conference to be held in Las Vegas from October 28-31, with information provided to interested parents, while Golphin clubs will be distributed to a select four or five LPGA teaching and club professional members who specialize in teaching younger children.
“As we continue to expand our commitment to children’s golf in the US and worldwide, we are pleased to announce our partnership with the LPGA and its outstanding instructional programmes,” said Calum McPherson, founder and managing director of Golphin.
Launched at the 2014 Scottish Golf Show, Golphin clubs are designed to benefit children aged from three to 12, and were developed in partnership with PGA professionals and the biomechanical department at Strathclyde University.
“The Golphin products will assist us as we encourage young juniors at LPGA tour clinics and at several LPGA T&CP events this year to learn the sport,” said LPGA chief teaching officer Nancy Henderson.
“When teaching young juniors, it is critical for them to see immediate success when they first attempt to learn to play. This positive response ultimately will affect the chances of them returning to learn more and engaging with the sport for life.”
