The USGTF National Office staff would like to wish you a Happy New Year for 2017. It proved to be a great year for the game of golf. The number of rounds played in 2016 through August, according to the National Golf Foundation, were up over 2015, and 2015 showed many positive signs in itself. So it appears that our industry continues to rebound from the economic downturn of the past few years.The USGTF continues to evolve and grow, with divisions in coaching, fitness and nutrition, management and sports psychology. In addition, instructional materials and resources continue to be updated regularly to keep up with current trends in teaching and coaching. These materials and resources can be accessed through our website at www.USGTF.com, or you may call the National Office at (888) 346-3290 or (772) 335-3216.
