Minnesota Junior PGA info


 

Over the years most of Redwood Valleys’ successful golfers and state tournament participants have participated in the Minnesota Junior PGA tour.  I believe that there are 3 very important things that can be learned by playing on the Junior Tour.

1)       Learn to play well competitively.

2)      Learn to play well with other people.

3)      Learn to play well on different courses.

Golf is competitive, the more you play in competitive tournaments the better that you will become at handling the pressure of that 5 foot put on the 18th hole.  The hardest thing for a lot of golfers to adjust to is playing with people other than their friends or family, but for our high school golfers you are always playing with individuals from different teams.  Lastly,  All our players usually play well at home, take them on the road when they are inexperienced and you can add 10-15 shots to their score.  I always tell kids there is not one sub-section, section or state tournament that we play at home so your better be able to take your game with you.

All of these things are difficult to coach and really come with experience, this is why I believe that participation in Junior PGA can really help prepare athletes to play at a high level during the high school season.------Coach Hegg
