The Gift of Golf
Golf Tips from the Tour sprang forth from a birthday inspiration for our son, Cole.  I felt that the best gift I could give Cole to help him attain his dream of becoming a PGA TOUR Player was the gift of the knowledge and experience that led to my success on the PGA TOUR. Now this information is available for others who are interested to benefit as well.

The First Tee of Greater Austin
"Golf is the Game, Life is the Lesson"

The First Tee of Greater Austin was formed in 1998, originally as a youth development organization. The founding partner organizations are the PGA of America, LPGA, PGA TOUR, Augusta National Golf Club, and the USGA. The national First Tee program is involved in several golf events hosted by their founding partners, including the Valero Texas Open and the HP Byron Nelson Championship. Since the start of the Austin chapter in 1998, there have been over 4,000 children of all ages involved. There are 14 First Tee chapters in Texas. There are 208 chapters total, with five international chapters. Overall, 2,000,000 children worldwide have been touched in some way by the program!
The First Tee's Nine Core Values:

Integrity. Sportsmanship. Courtesy. Confidence. Honesty. Perseverance. Judgment. Responsibility. Respect.
Golf Green Tip of the Month

Bunker Shot
April 22, 2009, was Earth Day, a day to celebrate and support our earth and sustainability.  Many children have a natural interest in the earth.  Kindle that interest and encourage kids to be conscious of how their actions affect nature.  Explain to them that by taking care of the earth, they are taking care of themselves as well since human beings are a part of nature.  While spending time with your children on the golf course, pay some extra attention to the surroundings and the wildlife on the golf course.  A fun game is to try and name the various species of plants and animals.
PGA TOUR Destinations:
The "Texas Swing"

The "Texas Swing," the three Texas PGA TOUR events played in succession in May of this year, are close to my heart. Since I am a resident of Austin, Texas, I view the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio, the HP Byron Nelson Championship in Dallas, the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial in Fort Worth, along with the Shell Houston Open as my home tournaments.
May Golf Events

Pocket Pro
Importance of the Grip:

"Teach children a proper grip and encourage a full, hard swing.  This can develop golf swing power muscles at an early age which will stay with them for a lifetime."
- J.L. Lewis, PGA TOUR Professional
Preparing for a Future in Golf
Helping Juniors Become Great Golfers

A child born with the aptitude to perform at a high level in a sport possesses a true gift that should be developed. All children, whether they have natural ability or simply show interest in the game can become good at sports when amply nurtured to enhance the further development of their skills.

Interview with Golf Coach Steve Williams

Steve Williams
I started playing golf at the age of 12 in 1970 and I was smitten from the start. I soon decided I wanted to play on the PGA TOUR. I was selected as All American in High school and received several scholarship offers to colleges and ended up attending the College of the Sequoias in Visalia, CA and then Fresno State University.
