Invest In Juniors Now!

Those of us in the golf industry are accustomed to the frequent call to grow the junior game, so much so, some of us have become blasé about it. Whatever our take on this urgent need to grow the game, we need to be united to come up with initiatives that will produce the next generation of club members, golfers and professionals.

Talk alone won't do it. We need to make golf FUN and EXCITING for kids to opt for golf. We need to make golf competitive so that kids will embrace it instead of walking over to other more team-oriented sports or even the massively large hand-held video games arena which is proving to be more compelling than any other recreational activity available.

To get the ball rolling, the celebrated and renowned three-time PGA Teacher Of The Year, Joe Thiel, founder of the Joe Thiel Golf Schools and Master Coach of the Mizuno Golf School of Japan will speak on why juniors have to be courted NOW to take up the game.

Joe will be one of the world class speakers at the 2014 Asia Pacific Golf Summit to be staged at the iconic Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore on November 14-15.

There is perhaps no one more passionate about golf and the teaching of the game and its life values to youngsters than Joe. The 37 year veteran was coach to the legendary South Korean super-star Se Ri Pak who is just one of the many thousands who Joe has taught and guided. He has the spunk and get-up of a kid and all that he really cares about is having an opportunity to make a difference in people's lives using golf as his platform.

Kudos and plaudits for Joe from fellow professionals and students are profuse and impressive. "Joe is one of the most dedicated and qualified golf professionals I have ever known. He has taught some of golf's finest players around the world and is continually searching for new ideas that will help golfers of any level," said Mike McGetrick,1999 PGA Teacher of the Year.

"Listening to Joe speak is like being transfixed to an impassioned preacher addressing a large multitude of people – he is absolutely engaging, sincere and totally different from anyone I have heard discussing golf and its growth," said Mike Sebastian, CEO of the Asia Pacific Golf Group and owner/producer of APGS 2014.

"With his intimate understanding of Asia, its varied cultures and his belief in Asia, Joe is going to make a huge impact at APGS 2014 and must not be missed by anyone serious about the growth of golf in the region – Joe is an absolute wizard," Sebastian stressed.
