Junior golf is integral to the future of our game.
San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) April 06, 2012
The new Nike Golf Camp at University of Rochester, NY will be offered July 15 through July 19, 2012. The program is coed and open to junior golfers, ages 10 – 18. Campers are housed on campus and travel to Wild Wood Country Club each day for golf activities. For those golfers who live locally, there is a day camp option during the same camp week.
Rochester Head Men’s Golf Coach, Dan Wesley, will direct the Nike Golf Camp alongside McDaniel College Head Coach, Scott Moyer. Wesley and Moyer will be assisted by other teaching professionals and members of the Yellowjackets men’s golf team. Wesley, a 1994 graduate or Rochester, returned to his alma mater in 2007 to take over the golf program. During his tenure, Wesley has produced 5 tournament wins, 12 runner-ups, and 32 top-three finishes in 41 events. Wesley has long-awaited an opportunity to host junior camps and looks forward to establishing a presence in the Rochester junior golf community this July.
"I have wanted to start a junior overnight golf camp since I took over our Rochester program five years ago, so I’m very excited to finally offer a week-long program this summer – and having the opportunity to partner with Nike Golf Schools & Junior Camps just makes it all the more special,” states Wesley. “Junior golf is integral to the future of our game, and Scott Moyer and I look forward to helping each camper grow during their camp experience.”
The University of Rochester is one of the country's top-tier research universities. 158 buildings house more than 200 academic majors, more than 2,000 faculty and instructional staff, and some 9,300 students—approximately half of whom are women.
