The annual Play with the Professional program has kicked off again this summer, offering Junior Tour players a unique and memorable golf experience. SCPGA staff members handpick deserving juniors that exemplify outstanding character and who are great ambassadors of the program. The goal of the program is to help foster a relationship between SCPGA Junior Tour members and PGA professionals in the Southern California Section. The program is also a great way for SCPGA Junior Tour staff to get to know members of the program better and help build relationships and camaraderie. The rounds are held at premier facilities and provide the juniors with lasting memories. By playing with PGA Professionals, the juniors recieve tips and advice on swing mechanics, course management, and mental toughness that they can then apply to their golf game in order to achieve their golf pursuits.
