Making Practice Count

Matt Brown - Mike Bender Golf Academy

As a vital component to our full-time Junior Elite Program at the Mike Bender Golf Academy, practicing smart can make the difference between progressing toward your goals in an efficient and timely manner verses spinning your wheels and wasting your time on the practice tee. What should you practice? How long and why? All great questions for the amateur, junior, and professional player alike.

At the MBEGA we make it our goal to help all of our students understand what and when to practice. In fact, we have broken it down into a science; a science that involves specific assessments and test performed at various times of the year for each of our Elite junior golfers.


2015 Press Thornton Future Masters

Joseph Pagdin wins 13-14 Division by Shooting 66 in His Final 2 Rounds!

The Press Thornton Future Masters Golf Tournament is one of the most traditionally rich junior tournaments in the world. An impressive list of golfing greats who have competed in the tournament continues to grow and includes past U.S. Open champions Hubert Green and Jerry Pate, Masters winner Larry Mize, PGA champions Bob Tway, Mark Brooks and Shawn Micheel, and British Open winner Ben Curtis. The Future Masters has become a proving ground for golf's brightest junior stars, but it is not, nor has it ever been, only about golf. It is about the spirit of competition, friendships made, sportsmanship on the course, and the challenge of preserving 66 years of growing golf.

Joseph Pagdin of Orlando, FL shot 66 in the final two rounds to win the Boys 13-14 age group. His 204 total score tied him with Karl Vilips of Jackson Spring,NC at the end of regulation play. Karl's 204 total score included all three rounds under 70. The winner was determined when Joseph sank a 15 foot birdie putt on the 3rd play-off hole.


Repeating a Grade in High School or Pursuing a Post-Grad Year?

Article by Nicky Goetze

During high school, some junior golfers may consider repeating a grade or pursuing a “post-grad” (or gap) year. Why would these options make sense? The desire to become more competitive as a recruit by extending the timeline before starting college is usually the primary motive. Extra time allows a junior player to mature, improve academic credentials, develop golf skills, and strengthen tournament results. Ultimately, the potential exists for both strategies to enhance performance and open up more college golf opportunities.

In this article, the idea of repeating a grade, as well as the pros and cons associated with this choice, will be explored.


Do you want to play golf in college?

What are you doing to make yourself standout amongst junior golfers in your grad year?

  • Do you want them to put you on their “watch” list?
  • Do you have tournaments that you play that coaches don’t know about like qualifiers and high school events?
  • Do you have accomplishments outside of golf you are proud of and want to share?

If you own A Golf and Academic Resume with the Junior Golf Scoreboard, you will be steps ahead of your competitors who are competing for those limited college golfing scholarships. For Grad Years 2015 & 2016 junior golfers, now is the time to let college coaches know you want to play college golf. Coaches are watching! Click Here to learn more about this great tool!

Correct Posture for the Shoulder

Championship Fitness by Kelly Shobe

In golf, many people mention rotator cuff exercises but neglect the shoulder blade/scapula. While exercising is very important, if your scapula is protruding, your shoulder will not be as strong or as stable as it should be. Your stabilizing muscles in the rotator cuff are attached to the floating bone that is designed to assist you during a golf swing.

RU Afraid of Success?

The Mental Game is Authored by Michael Riggs

“I mean, come on, get real. Afraid of success? That’s ridiculous. Why do you think I practice, and sacrifice, and train, and compete, anyway? To succeed!! I’ve always sought success. That is what drives me. Plus, look at all of my accomplishments... those certainly aren’t the result of a fear of success. Are they?”

It certainly seems like a strange concept, at first take, but maybe, just maybe there is something to the possibility of being afraid to succeed. For example, success brings on heightened expectations. After all, the spotlight isn’t shining on those “in the middle of the pack” Or, consider the possibility that deep down you aren’t sure if you have the resources to commit to all that it would take to succeed.
