Rowe Recognized as U.S. Kids Golf Top 50 Kids Teacher
ATLANTA – Chris Rowe of Trinity, Texas, is among the class of the Top 50 Kids Teachers for 2011, as announced by U.S. Kids Golf.
Rowe has been a junior golf instructor for 22 years and is currently the Head Golf Professional at Whispering Pines Golf Club. This is the first time that he has been named a Top 50 Kids Teacher by U.S. Kids Golf.
“It means so much to receive this award!” said Rowe. “I have been so blessed to be able to teach this game to so many wonderful kids. I thank the kids I’ve taught for their hard work and all of their achievements in this great game.”
The award, in its eighth year, recognizes golf professionals across North America who focus much of their time and energy on developing young golfers in their communities. The instructors are judged on several criteria, including percentage of time devoted to kids programs, creativity, communication and efforts to grow the game.
This year’s class represents 25 states and Canada and includes teachers who work at public, private, resort and municipal courses.
“The Top 50 Kids Teachers represent a group of professionals who are dedicated to helping kids develop their skills and their love of the game,” said Dan Van Horn, founder and president of U.S. Kids Golf. “We are pleased to recognize their talents and commitment.”
The 2011 Top 50 Kids Teachers will be recognized Friday, January 27, at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.
