BRASELTON, Ga. — The American Junior Golf Association announced a three-year partnership with Tathata Golf as the preferred Golf Training Program of the AJGA and partner of the ACDS Junior All-Star Series.
Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, Tathata Golf is already revolutionizing the way golf is taught and played worldwide. Tathata’s curriculum combines the timeless teachings of martial arts and the movements of some of the world's greatest golfers and athletes of all time. This complete mind, body and swing curriculum was created for golfers of all ages, body types and ability levels.
“It is an honor to be able to establish a long-term partnership with the AJGA,” said Bryan Hepler, founder of Tathata Golf. “To look at the future of our sport, and help train and develop the best junior golfers all over the world is very rewarding.”
Tathata Golf will provide a special AJGA member discount for its 60-Day Training Program that juniors can do from their home, gym or hotel while on the road.
“The AJGA already does such a great job preparing these juniors for college and life, and we are so grateful to be able to come alongside them and be a part of that preparation,” said Hepler. “Not only do we look forward to hosting tournaments with the AJGA but also hosting some unique junior golf schools at the Tathata Training Center in Scottsdale during their winter and summer breaks from school.”
Tathata Golf will also serve as the Title Sponsor of the Tathata Golf Junior All-Star Championship at El Conquistador Golf & Tennis on the Canada course, Jan. 13-16, in Oro Valley, Arizona. This tournament will be the first of 16 ACDS Junior All-Star Series events Tathata Golf will support in 2017.
