Using Golf to Learn More than a Sport

Students at Washington Elementary had the opportunity to take part in the ‘First Tee’ golf program. Golf can be a lifetime sport. Students were able to learn the mechanics and safety on how to swing a golf club. Muirfield Village Golf Pro Joe Wisler joined Tim Fritsche with ‘First Tee’ to teach the students. Mr. Fritsche is also a program director with the P.G.A. This program does more than teach golf though; it empowers our students with core values of honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibilities, perseverance, courtesy and judgement. Scott’s Lawn and Garden sponsors equipment for participating schools, so Gym Teacher Mr. Sutphin will be able to utilize the grant to get $3,500 worth of new golf equipment.
