Medicus Golf To Sponsor AJGA Preseason/Postseason Junior Series

Series of eight tournaments designed for first-time AJGA players

Medicus Golf will sponsor the Medicus Preseason/Postseason Junior Series, the American Junior Golf Association announced Thursday. The Series includes eight events designed specifically for first-time AJGA members or those members who have not yet participated in an AJGA Open event, Invitational or Nike Golf Junior All-Star Series event.

Medicus Golf and The Medicus Golf Institute are dedicated to enabling all golfers to “Live Their Vision” in reaching their potential. By expanding its corporate vision, mission, products, and services, Medicus Golf will enable golfers to learn and grow – both as a person and as a player – in a series of new and exciting developmental formats.

“We are very excited to be involved with such a professional organization as the AJGA and have the opportunity to extend our knowledge and expertise to these fine junior players,” said Bob Koch, president of Medicus Golf. “In addition, we look forward to giving all AJGA players the opportunity to participate in tournament play and provide them with educational experiences during our Medicus Clinic Series.”

The Medicus Clinic Series will be run under the direction of Bob Koch and Chuck Evans, executive director of instruction for Medicus Golf Institute. A clinic will be conducted during the tournament cookout at each event, which will be held after the first round of competition.

The 36-hole events will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis for those AJGA members who are eligible to apply. Each event will consist of a practice round, a clinic conducted by an instructor from the Medicus Golf Institute and two competitive rounds.

The first event of the Series and the AJGA season is scheduled for April 7-9. The Medicus Preseason Junior at Black Bear will be conducted at Black Bear Golf Club in Eustis, Fla. Other events include: Medicus Preseason Junior at RTJ Grand National (April 14-16, Grand National Golf Course - Lake Course, Opelika, Ala.); Medicus Preseason Junior at Norman (April 21-23, Belmar Golf Club, Norman, Okla.); Medicus Preseason Junior at Rhode Island (April 28-30, Newport National Golf Club, Middletown, R.I.); Medicus Preseason Junior at Red Tail (May 5-7, Red Tail Golf Club, Avon, Ohio); Medicus Preseason Junior at Rancho Mirage (May 12-14, Westin Mission Hills Resort - Gary Player Course, Rancho Mirage, Calif.); Medicus Postseason Junior at Alexandria (Aug. 25-27, Oakwing Golf Club, Alexandria, La.) and the Medicus Postseason Junior Lake Havasu (Aug. 25-27, The Refuge Golf Club, Lake Havasu City, Ariz.).

“The AJGA is very excited about our partnership with Medicus Golf,” said JasonEtzen, AJGA executive vice president for corporate partnerships. “The Medicus Preseason/Postseason Junior Series is a great opportunity for our members who have never played in an AJGA tournament. These events will allow juniors to gain valuable experience and exposure at the national level.”

The Medicus Golf Institution will “live its vision” by offering three fully integrated learning systems:

  • An online learning and training program to educate golfers in the knowledge of the game and golf specific sessions for personal training.
  • Destination Golf Schools for golfers who want to accelerate their learning through a two- or three-day format.
  • Indoor Training Centers for the student who desires a training program where they can learn at their own pace and train on an on-going basis.

All three learning formats will be able to assess the golfer in their strengths and weaknesses within their game and provide a standardized roadmap for player development and game enhancement.
