DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Aug. 4, 2008 – The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) is proud to announce it's first-ever compilation of the “The 50 Best Teachers.” To identify and recognize the best instructors in each of the five LPGA Teaching and Club Professional (T&CP) sections (Central, Midwest, Southeast, Northeast and Western), the LPGA T&CP - which includes more than 1,200 members – were asked to rank their peers by voting for the top teachers in their sections.
“Through LPGA student-centered education, our teachers are trained to tailor their instruction based on the individual golfer's goals, personality and preferred learning style,” said LPGA T&CP National President Patti Benson. “Each individual is definitely the focus of our golf instruction.”
“For almost 50 years, the LPGA Teaching and Club Professionals have been the grassroots ambassadors growing the game of golf and making the game more enjoyable by providing industry-leading golf education to golfers of all skill levels,” said LPGA T&CP Executive Director Nancy Henderson . “The significance of this list is that, for the first time, LPGA teachers have been recognized and voted on by fellow LPGA members.”
The LPGA T&CP membership was established in 1959 as an outgrowth of the LPGA Tour membership and has enjoyed an unprecedented rate of growth in recent years. The LPGA boasts the largest membership of women golf professionals in the world and is dedicated to the advancement of golf through teaching, managing golf facilities and coaching.The teachers listed below are The 50 Best Teachers for 2008-2009.
