2015 Northeast PGA Golf Instructors Conference

Michael Breed, Gale Peterson, Andrew Rice headline event

Russ Held Sports - WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (April 21, 2015)


The best teachers – your PGA golf professionals – are also students of the game.


It's an education that never ends and it continued in full-force Tuesday.


More than 70 PGA of America professionals in the Connecticut Section hit the classroom and lesson tee as participants in a two-day, Northeast PGA Golf Instructors Conference at Hartford Golf Club.


"I really like these, and when I come here I'm just like the student,'' said Jeff Swanson, head pro at Cedar Knob Golf Course in Somers. "I put the ball in their court. A lot of stuff you take away just re-confirms that you're teaching the same way, the right way. It can be a confidence boost.''


World-class instructors Michael Breed, Gale Peterson and Andrew Rice shared experiences and industry knowledge at the biennial workshop.
