Arlene McKitrick 2015

A few years ago, in addition to the effects of my diabetes I was suffering such excruciating arthritis pain I was about to quit playing golf all together. Fortunately, David Leadbetter introduced me to the Juvent device.

Juvent Sports (http://www.juventsports.com) and David Leadbetter teamed up today at the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show to bestow a Juvent Sports Achievement award upon an inspirational lady and incredible female amateur golfer, Arlene McKitrick. The award commemorated and congratulated McKitrick for her record 204th career female amateur golf tournament win. She won her first amateur tournament in 1979 and most recently won her 204th amateur tournament title at the Longboat Key Club. However, what is more remarkable than her golf victories is the personal physical adversity she has overcome. Mrs. McKitrick has achieved her golf accolades despite battling Acute Advanced Type I diabetes for over 20 years. Arlene McKitrick is a long-time golf student of David Leadbetter and in addition to having an incredibly positive spirit and personal drive she has also been a vocal user of the Juvent Micro-Impact Platform™ a device to which she has attributed “life changing” benefits, helping her overcome debilitating arthritis pain as well as the some of the effects of her battle with diabetes.

The award reception took place Thursday at the 2015 PGA Merchandise show in the Juvent Sports demonstration area. The award was presented to Arlene McKitrick by David Leadbetter and Juvent CEO Rush Simonson. In presenting the award Leadbetter commented, “I am so proud and happy for Arlene. Her coachability, tenacity on the course are surpassed only by her overall perseverance in tackling the many medical challenges she has faced. Her incredible achievements on the golf course and in life goals are unmatched.” McKitrick was visibly pleased and happy to receive the award from her golf mentor and from the company whose flagship product has made such a difference in her golf game and overall quality of life. “Quite frankly, a few years ago, in addition to the effects of my diabetes I was suffering such excruciating arthritis pain I was about to quit playing golf all together. Fortunately, Mr. Leadbetter introduced me to the Juvent device and it has simply been an amazing factor in my life. I feel healthier, stronger, more in balance, more energized and the terrible arthritis pain has all but disappeared. I am age 68 and I’m playing some of the best golf of my life.” Rush Simonson, CEO and Chairman of Juvent added, “Arlene is an incredible lady, an incredible competitor and a point of pride for all of us who work at Juvent. We are so pleased to have been able to help her continue playing the game she loves so much but more pleased about the positive impact we’ve been able to help make on her overall physical wellness and quality of life.
