Golf Sask. launches development program

Under the guidance of PGA of Saskatchewan professional and Golf Saskatchewan Manager of Sport Development Steve Ryde, the provincial amateur organization is launching a junior development program.

Ryde will work alongside Titleist Performance Institute certified instructor Dallas Mengel as well as experts from Saskatchewan’s Sport Medicine & Science Council. Ryde said the program is designed for junior golfers of all skill levels wanting to improve their game in all areas.

“The program is also aimed to compliment other PGA of Saskatchewan’s coaches programs with having four free mental game webinars and an interactive nutrition webinar as well,” he said. “This program is inclusive to all juniors looking to improve on their games. We want to help create champions in golf and life.”

There is three levels of the program based on what the junior golfer wishes to work on or develop. All three programs will begin in February. Included are virtual mental training sessions, swing sessions at the Saskatoon GolfDome, and training sessions with Mengel and more.

To be eligible golfers must be under 19 years of age as of Dec. 31, 2021 and be a Golf Saskatchewan member of a Golf Canada Public Player.
