This year’s Jack McKenna Junior Golf Day was cool and wet, BUT, we braved the elements and turned a dreary day into a fun one! Our morning began with a 20 minute warm-up with Matt Provenzano and Ashley Angerer from Summit Physical Therapy. They got everyone’s heart pumping with golf themed stretches and exercises. Thanks Summit PT! After our warm-up we went right into golf instruction and drills. Many thanks to our instructors – Robin Boyer (Chattanooga PGA, Bear Trace at Harrison Bay), Kathleen McCarthy (Chattanooga PGA, First Tee of Chattanooga Master Coach), David McKenna (Assistant Coach, UTC Men’s Golf), and Tripp Harris (former UTC Moc).
After a quick lunch break, current UTC Men’s & Women’s golf team members joined us for a “modified” 3 hole scramble. The juniors were divided into six teams, which consisted of two juniors and two UTC Mocs. They played a fun 3 hole course that included a traditional golf hole with Stableford scoring for points, a target hole where teams had to hit a series of targets to earn points, and the Golfzilla hole with points being awarded based on hitting birdie balls into ‘zilla’s mouth, feet, and hands. See results below and pictures of all our teams in the photo gallery!
Thank you UTC Golf for making Jack McKenna Junior Golf Day so much fun! Good luck to each team at NCAA Regionals.
