Dear WNY Parents, Coaches and Juniors,
The USA Junior National Team Golf Program is a relatively new entity which is in its second year nationally. Huge industry names like Annika Sorenstam and Chuck Evans are examples of team coaches. It is a high performance coaching program that combines golf technique, mindset training, on course skills, fitness and self- development.
I’m Gary Occhino and I’m honored to inform you that I am one of the 14 select coaches chosen and entrusted to implement the USA Junior National program.
Our WNY program is ready to expand. Dave Patronik, a former Section 6 standout and college golf coach, outstanding player and person is added to our coaching staff. Together, we aim to provide young men and young women with the best opportunity the area has ever seen. The USA Junior National Program is now the benchmark for developmental golf; we are ready to turn our Section 6 golfers into elite, recognized players who represent the wonderful game with class and dignity.
There will be two upcoming information nights for parents, players and coaches. They will be at the following locations and times:
Please share this opportunity with your players. I’ve also created a flier (below) for parents and players to share. Should any of you want more details prior to the information night, please contact me personally. There is also the USA Junior Golf website which is www.usajrgolf.com.
