Are you reading this and thinking, “How do I get my name on this list”?
- Get involved. Get a GHIN Handicap if you don’t already have one.
- Practice. Commit to working on your short-game or taking lessons with a PGA/LPGA Professional this year.
- Compete. Register for tournaments across the state and at different levels of competition. Don’t be afraid to fail a few times before you get better.
We’d love to see different names at the top of this list this time next year. Make 2019 your year!
