Fri Feb 1 2013SNAG Golf Captures Industry Award at PGA Show
SNAG® Golf (‘Starting New At Golf’), a proven first touch player development program designed for new learners of all ages, was the winner of the International Network of Golf (ING) 29th Industry Honors Awards at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando last week. SNAG Golf captured the Player Development Award, and was chosen over the PGA’s Tee It Forward and PGA Professional Rick Grayson.
Called by some the "Academy Awards of the Golf Industry," the ING Industry Honors program recognizes outstanding achievement in the golf business. Master of Ceremonies was former LPGA Tour star and golf course designer Jan Stephenson.
Nominees in a dozen categories are submitted throughout the year from members of the golf industry. Sub-committees that include experts in each category then trim the entries to the top three in each category. ING members vote electronically to determine the winners, who are announced and recognized at the Industry Honors Presentation Press Conference at the annual PGA Show.
“We were honored to be recognized by ING and our peers in the industry for taking the lead in developing future golfers through our SNAG coaching and teaching programs around the world,” said Terry Anton, CEO and co-founder of SNAG Golf. “The growth of the game will be dependent on creating the best feeder system into the growing golf infrastructure and I believe we are accomplishing that every day. This prestigious award further validates that we are making a significant difference.”
Grow the game is a catch phrase that summarises the need to get more people into playing the game of golf. The more people we have interested in playing the more opportunity we have to steer them through all the great things the game of golf can offer.
If you are looking to play socially, part of more structured, or even as a career, golf is a great industry to be a part of.
