MARION — The Heart of Ohio Junior Golf Association Camp recently was held at Determined Brilliance Driving Range in Marion, with teaching professional Steve Grimes lending instruction to a group of juniors on the fundamentals of the golf swing, etiquette and rules on the golf course. He was assisted by Buzz Diamond of Marion.
A few juniors were asked what was most helpful at the camp. Dominic Harms of Delaware said that, “the etiquette part and how to control your swing.”
Other young golfers picked up some helpful tips that will only help them going forward.
“Learning to control distance by my swing,” Tyler Daniel of Marysville cited. “To set up my stance was most helpful,” Briggs Leffler of Mt. Gilead said. Nathan Kirkham of Marion mentioned that he “learned how to gauge putting distance on the putting green”.
Juniors will practice and apply their new learned techniques in the HOJGA tournament series as it continues through June and July.
Heart of Ohio Junior Golf Association, in its 36th season, serves junior golfers in Crawford, Delaware, Hardin, Marion, Morrow, Union and Wyandot counties with its schedule of events.
The HOJGA tournament series began June 6 and continues June 23 Marysville G. C., June 30 Blues Creek, Marysville, July 7 Veterans Memorial at Kenton, July 14 Kings Mill at Waldo and July 18 at Valley View, Galion. The Year-End Awards Banquet will follow the series on July 28.
