“How to Keep Newbies in the Game”
Raleigh, NC – North Carolina-based golf player development program Operation 36 announces that it is co-hosting a webinar for LPGA golf professionals on Monday, June 27.
This “How to Keep Beginners in the Game” workshop will feature Operation 36 Coach Amanda Beeler, LPGA, who is the Director of Golf Instruction and Academy at Healdsburg Golf Club and the co-founder of Operation 36, Matt Reagan, PGA. The webinar training will share the best strategies for quickly engaging beginner golfers and retaining them for years to come.
Golf has a reputation for losing most of its beginner golfers due to the tremendous learning curve. Reagan will share specific strategies to “hook” a beginner and keep them committed to becoming a lifelong golfer. Beeler will share her stories of how she connects with her newbie golfers and how she helps the newbie fall in love with the sport.
Beeler said, “My goal with every student, regardless of age and skill level, is to make golf accessible. Finding a love for the game translates to a lifetime of outdoor golf fun with friends and family. My favorite moments are seeing kids I’ve worked with bringing their parents and grandparents to class. There is a tremendous amount of freedom in feeling confident in an activity that you can enjoy for a lifetime.
The workshop will be hosted online, Monday, June 27 at 2:00 p.m. EDT. Space is limited, and those who are interested can take their place with this free registration here.
About Operation 36
Operation 36 is a division of Golf Genius and is the most effective development program for teaching beginners how to play golf. All new players start on the course, and instead of starting at the tee box, they play 25 yards from the hole. Once the player shoots par (36) from 25 yards, they back up to 50 yards, and so on, until they shoot par (36) from the full tee. Participants attend weekly lessons taught by golf professionals and all golfer progress is tracked on the Operation 36 platform. Operation 36’s mission is to create 1 million new golfers over the next five years, and they want to help coaches introduce new golfers and retain them for the long term.
