Longtime USGTF member James Peters of Newport, Kentucky, was named the sixth winner of the Harvey Penick Trophy for Excellence in Golf Teaching at the closing banquet and awards ceremony at the CGTF/United States Golf Teachers Cup in Niagara Falls, Ontario, October 3. Peters teaches at Etter’s Golf Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, and gives approximately 1,000 lessons per year. According to Peters, looking and listening are the most important aspects of teaching. “I always liked the saying, ‘You have two eyes, two ears and one mouth; use them in that proportion.'”

Peters is also an accomplished player, having in the past won USGTF Southeast and Central Region titles. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, Peters has been a longtime member and supporter of the USGTF. The Penick award is given annually to the USGTF member whose teaching accomplishments and service to the golf community are exemplary.
