2002 Sun Devil Golf Camp
Becoming a champion is never easy. But, over the years, no other collegiate golf program in the nation has consistently launched more championship careers than Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona. And, now your son or daughter can benefit from this expertise by attending the Sun Devil Golf Camp at Arizona State University.
Directed by ASU's Randy Lein and Mickey Yokoi, two of the most successful college golf coaches in the country, the five-day Sun Devil Golf Camp will provide your athlete with the instruction and counseling required to excel in collegiate golf.
Instruction will focus on improving the student's swing, short game, putting, chipping and course management skills. Campers are grouped by ages and skill levels. Each group (maximum 10) will be guided by a skilled instructor and counselor throughout the camp.
Instruction will be provided by some of the most outstanding collegiate golf coaches, PGA and LPGA teaching professionals and former and current ASU collegiate players.
In the past, we have had guest appearances by PGA and LPGA standouts such as Phil Mickelson, Billy Mayfair and Wendy Ward. (Appearances may vary due to professionals' schedules.)
Fun, Challenging Activities
We finish the camp with an 18-hole tournament followed by an awards reception which is open to the campers' families.
Educational seminars covering the following topics:
- How to earn a golf scholarship
- What to expect from college golf
- Golf history, rules and equipment
- Golf course management
- Nutrition ï¿½Weight training
- Sports psychology: ï¿½The 'mental game'
All campers will be met upon arrival at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix and will be fully supervised from the time of arrival until their departure.
Registration will be at the ASU dormitories on the day of arrival. The official program will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will end after the awards reception at approximately 3 p.m.
Transportation will be provided to and from the airport.
Please plan on arriving prior to 5 p.m. on the first day of camp and departing after 3 p.m. on the last day of camp.
