The Tournament Players Association now administers more than 1,000 tournaments worldwide. These events culminate with the World Championship and Teen World Championship, which welcomed more than 2,300 participants from 53 countries in 2016.
The Coaches Institute now consists of more than 1,200 members, all working together and growing the game of golf.
U.S. Kids Golf Certified Coaches are recognized as experts in teaching golf to kids ages 12 and under. Certified Coaches understand how to encourage young golfers by making learning fun and providing them with an organized pathway to improvement. They are knowledgeable about the importance of properly fit clubs and techniques to aid in swing development. They engage parents and encourage play from tees that are scaled to each individual member of the family.
The longleaf tee system
Our newest initiative is the design and implementation of the Longleaf Tee System — a unique and important data-based method to scale golf courses. Providing more tees makes the game more fair and enjoyable for every level of player.
U.S. Kids Golf is now partnered with the American Society of Golf Course Architects. Dan Van Horn and Rees Jones joined the set of Morning Drive, presented by the Golf Channel, to discuss the Longleaf Tee System and its importance to growing the game.
