Mary Hafeman has been selected as one of the 2015 Golf Range Association of America Top 50 Growth of the Game Teaching Professionals. “This especially exciting for me since GRAA receives an outstanding batch of applicants for this honor and I have been selected from a group of highly regarded teachers,” Hafeman said.
A professional golfer for over 30 years, Hafeman’s parents introduced her to the game when she was 10 years old. “It’s just as exciting as when I started coaching and introducing golf to my students,” she said. “I love seeing them have fun learning, competing, struggling to improve and reaching their individual goals.”
Hafeman’s experience playing on the LPGA Tour has given her an advantage to coach a person to lower their score, talk about strategies, adapt to pressure, and get results they want. “Golf is so much more than just hitting a ball,” said Hafeman. “I’m one of the luckiest people alive to be able to love a sport and share it with others.”
Hafeman is in the process of putting together 2016 plans for a LPGA Girls Golf Program for 6- 16 year olds and PGA Junior Sports Academy for both boys and girls 9-14. More information can be found at Hafeman’s website www.maryhafemangolf.com
