Travel League

Junior Travel League​

Introduction to Competition

Travel League is the fourth step in TGP’s Junior Development Series and is intended to be an introduction to competitive golf. Travel League is geared toward young golfers who have demonstrated basic playing skills, a primary understanding of rules and etiquette, have previous golf course experience, and have an interest in competitive golf. Travel League golfers will be coached to be thoughtful students of the game while challenging their own abilities through well-intentioned practice. Students will have an understanding of their specific golf projects and how they can utilize various resources to properly measure their progress and experiences.

This program focuses on golf fundamentals, including:

  • A reliable pre-shot routine – Junior golfers will continue to build a consistent pre-shot routine that allows them to analyze and prepare for each shot, which is a skill that is needed to successfully perform under pressure.
  • Wedging skills – Students will gain an understanding of how to execute a proper wedge shot and how to vary their shot trajectory through their setup and stroke.
  • Putting technique – Students will continue to develop their grip and posture to allow for a free-moving putting stroke, and they will work on various drills to isolate the skills specific to putting (e.g., reading greens, clubface alignment, solid contact, and speed management).
  • Recovery shots – Each player will be taught specialty shots that can be utilized when trying to escape trouble areas on the golf course.
  • Competitive playing procedures – Players will learn more advanced rules and the nuances of golf etiquette that are required in tournament competition.

Travel League classes meet twice per week, and each class is 90 minutes. In addition, during spring and summer months, students will be invited to compete in tournaments that are held once per week.
