December Events at College of Golf
Keiser University Flagship Campus Sports Medicine and Exercise Science Students Teach Core Training to Golf Students
Surprisingly enough, many elite golfers suffer from different physical injuries and ailments that effect their golf game. Of all the injuries, lower back injuries are the greatest disabler. Keiser University Exercise Leadership class students finished their semester with the golden opportunity of designing and implementing a core workout session for the university’s College of Golf students. Each student developed and was instructed on exercises for two stations; the golf students progressed through each station learning new techniques to enhance their personal level of fitness and to educate them on injury prevention. The training session proved to be a hit for students in both programs as they came to respect the demands of each other’s chosen field.
College of Golf Tournament Operations Class Raises Money for Cystic Fibrosis
PGA Professional Frank Longabucco’s Tournament Operations class recently organized and conducted a golf tournament to benefit Cystic Fibrosis. The event was played at Palm Beach Polo Club’s Dunes Golf Course, and 32 students participated. The class managed every aspect of the event from forming a committee, to establishing the format, gathering prizes, promoting the event, handicapping the field, and posting the final scores.
The winners of the two-player scramble were Zack Campbell and Nick Lewis in the gross division with a sterling score of 6-under par 66. The net division was won by John Gaston and John Buboltz. Brad Costa captured Closest-to-the-Pin, and Bryce Buesing won the Long-Drive competition. Tournament chair William Graves who assumed overall responsibility for the event stated, “The students enjoyed the overall experience and learned all aspects of running a charity golf tournament.” The event raised over $150.00 for Cystic Fibrosis.
