By: Mitch Johnson & Barry Maher, Case Junior Golf Instructors

On October 17, G3-5 students in the Junior School Golf Academy attended the first round of The CJ Cup at Nine Bridges Golf Course, which is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour. The event is the only PGA tournament in South Korea and attracts world-renowned professional golfers from all around the globe. Our students used the opportunity to make connections from their Case Junior golf lessons, observe the techniques of the proper golf fundamentals, and learn the etiquette of the game. After walking the course and watching the competition, the students received high fives and golf balls from a variety of players including Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Jordan Speith, and Danny Lee. Students also received autographs and photographs with the eventual champion Justin Thomas!
