Spring Meeting Begins 2017 Season

March 30th, 2017

The Spring Meeting seminar featured James Ridyard, a former panelist from the PGA of America's Teaching & Coaching Summit in January 2015. Ridyard is the co-owner of the Shore Game Secrets brand. As an instructor, Ridyard spends his time coaching on golfers on professional tours, but also ensures that he spends time working with players of all levels at his home base in the UK.



The video from the seminar highlights his comparison between Larry Mize and Tiger Woods shots during the Masters, trends on approach shots, and more.

If you missed the Spring Meeting, please take a look at the posters below to download and post in your locker rooms.
