)-- Matt Primrose, manager of Ace Golf in Riverview, has been selected as a US Kids Golf Top 50 Teacher in the US and has also been selected by the PGA of America as the West Central Chapter Junior Golf Leader. Hundreds of golf professionals were considered for the prestigious awards, and Matt was chosen for his excellence in junior golf education.
In addition to his role as manager at Ace Golf, Matt is also a US Kids Golf Certified Instructor. There are Summer Golf Camps each week and golf clinics that are held in Riverview each Saturday at 1:00 PM & 3:00 PM. Matt is available for expert club fitting and the full line of US Kids Golf equipment is available for purchase at all of Ace Golf’s locations.
U.S. Kids Golf has announced the recipients of the Top 50 Kids Teachers Award, which annually recognizes the world’s most outstanding youth golf instructors. The class of 2013 includes golf professionals from 21 states, Canada, Costa Rica and Mexico, with recipients chosen from a record 747 applicants. U.S. Kids is a leading manufacturer of children’s golf equipment.
“The award was created to help parents find the best coaching for their kids,” said Dan Van Horn, President and CEO of U.S. Kids Golf. “The mission of U.S. Kids Golf is to make the game fun for kids, and the Top 50 Kids Teacher Award is an important part of encouraging golf professionals who are key in supporting us and achieving this mission.”
Since 2004, U.S. Kids Golf has honored golf’s best teachers with the Top 50 Kids Teacher Award. Applicants complete an online survey and winners are chosen based on their contributions to junior golf, such as: time devoted to teaching young golfers; innovation, creativity and fun in their programs; communication; parental involvement; and overall effort to grow the game. Award recipients include teachers who work at public, private, resort and municipal courses.
Following the US Kids award, Matt also received the PGA of America’s Junior Golf Leader Award for the PGA Chapter that runs from Sun City to Ocala and west to Lakeland. Over 100 golf professionals were considered for that award. To have both the US Kids and PGA award go to the same individual is unusual, further demonstrating Matt’s talent in helping kids to learn golf. Ted Bishop, President of the PGA, announced the award.
