Just a quick post to say congratulations to the PGA Junior League All Stars from Baci Golf Team in Boca Raton Florida! The team competed AND WON on August 11-12 at Eagle Ridge Golf Club near Ocala, Florida in the PGA Junior League Golf Southern Regional Championship.
Watching a child golfer, especially your child golfer, is wonderful … and I mean full of wonder. This is true of most young athletes, I’m sure, as parents revel in their child’s talent. I think golf is extra special in this way just because of how hard it is to play well.
One of the most impressive aspects of a child golfer with a good golf swing is the distance they can drive the golf ball. It kinda’ reminds me of an ant that can carry many times its weight. Eight and nine year-olds longer than 200 yards Continue reading

Stan made it a point to be at many, many of our tournaments and was always there with can do and support. Even when we had to leave the house at 5am to travel, he was there.
