On Saturday, September 27, local junior golfers and their parents will attend a free workshop held at the Orlando World Center Marriott and conducted by one of the country’s top golf instructors. The workshop is designed to help explain the process of securing college golf scholarships. All juniors in attendance will also receive free swing evaluations, and engage in private discussions that cover their goals and a personal roadmap to achieving them.
There are many misconceptions about what it takes to get noticed by a collegiate golf program. Parents are often shocked to learn that the age of 14 is sometimes too late to begin the process. The top Division I programs identify potential recruits as early as the 7th and 8th grade, and often finish their recruitment before a player completes his or her sophomore year of high school.
The result: as many as 200 of 1,800 female golf scholarships go unclaimed each year, according to the NCAA. This workshop will help those in attendance take the proper first steps in discovering what opportunities exist for their children, and how these opportunities can be realized.
The event is sponsored by the Central Florida TourZone of the Top50 Junior Tour and its Director, Tony Wilson, and hosted by Bill Madonna, a 40-year member of the PGA of America and one of only 15 members of the PGA Master Teaching Faculty. Madonna is a GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teacher, a PGA Section Teacher of the Year award winner, and one of Golf Digest’s Best Teachers in Florida. The event will take place at the Orlando World Center Marriott, home of the Bill Madonna Golf Academy since 2000.
Under the guidance of the National Golf Scholarship Association and PGA Golf Professionals, the Top50 Junior Tour offers students opportunities to develop their golf game, expand their personal knowledge, and build character through scholarship, community service, and competitive junior golf. Both Tony Wilson and Bill Madonna manage the Top50 Junior Tour events in the Orlando area.
Journalists are invited to book their own complimentary private golf lesson with Bill on any day prior to the 27th so that they may personally experience his instructional style. Please contact Bill directly at 407-948-1777 to book a lesson or confirm attendance on September 27.
