Looking for fun and creative ways to stay engaged at home? We’ve got you covered!
At First Tee, there’s never an “off-season” when it comes to keeping our minds working and thinking about golf and life skills. To that aim, we’ve developed a collection of resources for the whole family.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll continue to add more activities. Want to see something specific? Just let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you completed an activity below? We would love to see your work! Tag us on social media at @TFTSeattle (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram). Know a golf-minded family that might be interested in these activities? Please share!
First Tee at home
Golf skills & Drills
Our coaches have put their heads (and hands) together to create some great material for young golfers, including a “How To” series from advanced players and the 14 Swing Principles of the PGA in ways that golfers of all abilities can understand. We will be adding drills and ideas you can try at home to improve in each one of these areas.
Get into the minds of advanced golfers and learn how they play their best. And in this series, we spotlight golfers you may know: our coaches, ACE members, and local instructors and golf professionals!
The PGA of America outlines 14 primary swing principles that are essential to any golf swing, and our coaches have developed video tutorials for each of the principles. Throughout spring 2020, we will release one new principle each week for you to review and study.
Book and Movie Recommendations
With all the time we are spending at home, it’s a great opportunity to catch up on some reading, and especially about golf! We’ve listed some of the best golf books and movies of all time, so check it out and let us know which ones you enjoy the most.
