College of Golf June 2023 Events
College of Golf Students Enjoy Game on The Breakers West Course
Keiser University College of Golf students recently enjoyed a unique opportunity to play one of the best courses in the area, The Breakers West Course. One of two courses operated by the Breakers Resort, the West Course is a Rees Jones re-design that was originally built in 1968 and is considered one of the premier golf experiences in the southeastern United States.
Students enjoyed the game thanks to student Kenneth Rissley, who is a current employee of the facility. Special thanks for the day also go to The Breakers Head Golf Professional Brett McCurdy, who also happens to be a former player for Keiser University Golf Coach Brandon Miller.
In a competition held with PGA Faculty and students, the team of PGA Professional Ken Martin and students Gabriel Ladue, Kenneth Rissley, and Aramis Wells shot a team score of 59 to claim honors for the day.
College of Golf Students Learn Shot-Shaping Skills
Keiser University College of Golf PGA Professional Frank Longabucco and PGA Master Professionals Brian Hughes and David Wixson conducted a clinic on shot-shaping at the outdoor training area last week.
Based in part on the lessons recent US Open victor Wyndham Clark’s winning performance provided, the main topics included Ball Flight Laws, Adjusting Individual Pre-Swing Principles, and Adjusting Individual In-Swing Principles. After demonstrating the primary points of the clinic, instructors worked with students to develop and refine their abilities to hit different shot shapes with different clubs.
Longabucco discussed the importance of learning from feedback and incorporating it into every shot practiced or played on the golf course. The clinic ended with a competition designed to motivate students to practice and refine their shot-shaping skills.
