Mardi Gras Fun At The TRUGREEN Junior Clinic

Tuesday of Honda week was also Mardi Gras.  Chapter Executive Director Carl Mistretta is a New Orleans native and took the opportunity to pass out beads and doubloons to all the kids and even a few adults.  Mistretta shared a few Mardi Gras facts with the crowd before the big show began.

Dennis Walters, and PGA Tour professional Andrew Kozan hosted our annual Junior Clinic sponsored by TRUGREEN.  The event began with Dennis and Gussie putting on their inspirational show of golf trick shots.  As always, the crowd was amazed.  Gussie even hit a few shots.  Does Dennis ever miss a shot?

Andrew grew up in South Florida and attended The King’s Academy and then played college golf at Auburn.  He talked to the kids and teens about challenges in his life and how he practices and manages his game to play professional golf.  He watched chapter student Mateo Muniz and alumnus Billy Reid hit some shots for the crowd.   Billy hit it far and Mateo hit it straight! 

Hot dogs and snacks were served to all that attended.  Over 100 juniors joined us for the clinic.  Thank you TruGreen for sponsoring our great partnership.
