Birdee Golf A lot of us go out in the backyard with a wedge and chip some balls around. A few of the more excitable among us can’t resist taking a full swing. A fine idea if you don’t have any neighbors or care much about your lawn. That is until BIRDEE GOLF launched onto the scene late last year being featured in the Best New Product Zone at this years National PGA Show in Orlando and being voted Best New Product in the most recent Minneapolis Golf Show by TwinCitiesGolf.com. BIRDEE GOLF consists of 2 target nets (no assembly and sets up in seconds!) and 6-patented birdees (golf ball/shuttle combo) and a nylon-carrying bag for easy storage and portability. BIRDEE GOLF’S flexibility allows you to not only play a very exciting full swing golf game but also makes for a great limited flight training aid. The patented birdees hit and react just like a real golf ball allowing you to fine tune your accuracy on a variety of wedge shots at varying swing speeds and the one piece molded design won’t break apart like other models. Whether on the beach, in the yard or tailgating BIRDEE GOLF allows you to have fun, work on your game and satisfy that urge to reach back and crush it! www.BirdeeGolf.com or visit their retail store in the Burnsville Center. Follow Birdee Golf on Facebook (www.facebook.com/birdeegolf) and Twitter (@birdeegolfgame) for all the latest promos and events. Birdee Golf has a variety of games at varying price points starting at $49.95.

Minnesota  Minority  Junior   Golf  Association   and  The  First  Tee

By  Tim  Cotroneo

'R\RXNQRZRID\RXQJVWHUZKRZRXOGEHQHÂżWIURPWUDLQLQJLQWKHHVVHQWLDOVRIFRPPLWPHQW The  Minnesota  Minority  Junior  Golf  Association  is  the  legacy  spurred  by  Tylerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  positive   LQWHJULW\KDUGZRUNDQGVRFLDOVNLOOV"0LQQHVRWD0LQRULW\-XQLRU*ROI$VVRFLDWLRQDQG7KH experiences  as  a  caddy.  In  1987,  the  MMJGA  began  as  a  charitable  organization  designed   First  Tee  offer  all  this  and  more,  while  teaching  kids  the  great  game  of  golf. to   support   minority   junior   golf   and   create   opportunities   through   the   game.   In   1999,   the   organization  evolved  into  its  present  form  when  its  caddy  program  took  shape. During  2012,  Tee  Times  Press  is  running  a  series  of  articles  focusing  on  the  many  organizations,   both  public  and  private,  that  support  the  growth  of  golf  in  Minnesota.  The  organizations  being   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   wanted   this   program   to   be   so   much   more   than   just   teaching   a   child   how   to   play   golf.   SURÂżOHG LQFOXGH WKH 3*$ ([SORUH 0LQQHVRWD7RXULVP ([SORUH 0LQQHVRWD *ROI$OOLDQFH I   felt   MMJGA   should   be   about   life   lessons   on   issues   like   integrity,   discipline,   learning   Minnesota  Womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Golf  Association,  the  EWGA  and  the  Fairway  Foundation. responsibility,  earning  money,  and  the  value  of  hard  work.  Caddying  teaches  a  youngster  all   these  things,â&#x20AC;?  Tyler  said.

THE  MINNESOTA  MINORITY  JUNIOR  GOLF  ASSOCIATION One  of  the  best  ways  to  grow  the  game  of  golf  is  to  demonstrate  the  gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  gifts  to  a  youngster   at  an  early  age.  No  one  takes  this  idea  to  heart  more  than  F.  Clayton  Tyler.  This  Minneapolis   attorney  gained  so  much  from  his  years  caddying  at  Minneapolis  public  golf  courses,  that  he   took  it  upon  himself  to  develop  a  program  designed  to  instill  the  values  he  learned  from  his   childhood  golf  experiences. LEARNING  FROM  A  LEGEND $WWKHDJHRI7\OHUEHJDQFDGG\LQJIRU6DQG\6WHSKHQVD8QLYHUVLW\RI0LQQHVRWD$OO American  quarterback  and  a  player  on  the  Gophersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  national  championship  team.  Arising  at  6   a.m.  to  caddy  for  the  college  Hall  of  Famer  taught  Tyler  about  the  importance  of  commitment.     Also,   the   money   management   skills   that   became   necessary   with   newfound   caddy   income   ZHUHDQRWKHURQWKHMREZDNHXSFDOO&DGG\LQJIRU6WHSKHQVDQGWKH0LQQHDSROLVEXVLQHVV people  Tyler  met  at  various  golf  courses,  proved  to  be  an  early  lesson  in  networking  to  which   Tyler  adheres  today.  

CADDY  SUCCESS  STORIES Tyler  was  asked  if  there  were  spontaneous  offshoots  of  the  program  that  surprised  him.  Tyler   recalled  attending  a  scholarship  banquet  at  a  Minneapolis  church.  The  banquet  had  nothing   to   do   with   golf.   Much   to  Tylerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   delight,   an   impromptu   MMJGA   testimonial   came   out   of   QRZKHUHÂł,WWXUQHGRXWWKDWRQHRIWKHVFKRODUVKLSZLQQHUVZDVRQHRIWKHÂżUVWNLGVWRJR through   our   program.   He   got   up   in   front   of   the   people   assembled   and   said   he   wanted   to   thank  me  and  our  Executive  Director  Jackie  Cherryholmes.  He  said  our  caddying  program   taught  him  so  much  about  perseverance  and  hard  work.  This  young  man  said  that  the  traits  he   OHDUQHGIURPRXUSURJUDPZHUHKLVÂżUVWVWHSVOHDGLQJWRFROOHJH´7\OHUUHFDOOHG One  of  MMJGA  favorite  success  stories  is  Sasha  Phillips,  a  program  grad  who  went  on  to   EHFRPH DQ (YDQV 6FKRODUVKLS ZLQQHU$V D \HDUROG QHZFRPHU WR WKH FDGG\ SURJUDP Phillips  was  barely  big  enough  to  carry  a  golf  bag  18  holes.  In  2008,  Phillips  earned  a  Bachelor   in  Urban  Studies  from  the  U  of  M.  One  of  MMJGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  shining  stars,  Phillips  regularly  comes   back  to  tell  her  personal  before  and  after  narrative  at  new  caddy  recruiting  events.   Tyler  revealed  that  one  of  the  best  dividends  of  the  MMJGA  caddy  program  is  how  it  impacts   SDUHQWVÂł:KHQDFKLOGQHHGVWRJHWXSDWLQWKHPRUQLQJWRFDGG\LWXVXDOO\PHDQVWKH parents  are  involved,  too.  The  encouraging  nudge  that  a  parent  provides  helps  greatly  with  a   childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  overall  commitment.  There  are  positives  across  the  board  when  the  parent  becomes   involved   and   the   child   starts   earning   money   through   the   game   of   golf.   Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   had   many   parents  tell  us  about  the  difference  our  program  has  made  in  their  lives,â&#x20AC;?  Tyler  said. THE   FIRST   TEE   â&#x20AC;&#x201C;   LEARNING   ABOUT   LIFE   THROUGH  GOLF The  First  Tee  is  a  national  junior  program  with  local  ties  that   is  also  helping  youngsters  grow  through  golf.  According  to   First  Tee  of  St.  Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Executive  Director  Brian  Simpson,  golf   is   a   tremendous   vehicle   for   teaching   a   child   core   personal   values.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honesty  and  Integrity  are  the  keys  to  success.  Golf   LVDVSRUWZLWKQRUHIHUHH<RXNHHSWUDFNRI\RXURZQVFRUH 6RPHWLPHVRQO\\RXNQRZLIWKHVFRUHMRWWHGGRZQRQ\RXUFDUGLVWKHFRUUHFWRQH<RXÂśUHLQ charge  when  no  one  else  is  watching,â&#x20AC;?  Simpson  said. *ROILVDVSRUWWKDW\RXFDQSOD\LQWR\RXUJROGHQ\HDUV:KHQLVWKHEHVWWLPHWROHDUQJROI" Ask   any   pro   and   theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll   say   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   great   to   teach   someone   before   bad   habits   are   ingrained.   Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  interesting  is  that  the  key  strategies  consistently  practiced  by  the  best  golfers  apply   perfectly  to  success  in  life.  Check  out  First  Teeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Life  Skills  program  fundamentals  and  see   how  the  fundamentals  in  golf  and  life  parallel  each  other.

WHATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S  PAR  FOR  THE  COURSE  IN  YOUR  LIFE? In   addition   to   learning   the   proper   golf   grip,   stance,   and   short   game   skills,   youngsters   put   through  the  paces  of  First  Teeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Life  Skills  training  learn  the  essential  traits  to  prospering  in   life  and  business.

First  Tee  of  St.  Paul  will  work  with  1,000  youngsters  in  2012.  In  addition  to  St.  Paul,  there  are   four  other  Twin  Cities  locations  from  which  to  choose.  Simpson  noted  that  through  donations   and  grants,  St.  Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Highland  Park  Golf  Course  is  opening  a  new  kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  learning  center  on   their  golf  range.  Another  exciting  development  is  that  family  members  of  military  personnel   get  free  golf  and  life  lessons  through  First  Tee. Simpson  echoed  the  beliefs  of  MMJGAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Clayton  Tyler  when  he  shared  the  silver  lining  to   the  First  Tee  program.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  focused  on  breaking  down  barriers  and  creating  opportunities   for  kids.  Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  also  all  about  seeing  kids  achieve  their  dreams,â&#x20AC;?  Simpson  said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey Pro, Do you suggest static stretching before I play golf? PRO:  Shocking  answer  but  the  research  says  NO!    

Many  top  athletes  and  trainers  argue  that  static  stretching  is  ineffective  and  potentially  unsafe.     If  you  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  believe  me  go  ahead  and  Google  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rickey  Fowler  golf  warm   upâ&#x20AC;?  and  you  will  find  Fowler  and  his  personal  trainer  warming  up  with   techniques  known  as  dynamic  warm  up.    As  you  watch,  think  of  these   warm  ups  as  stretching  your  muscles  by  moving  them,  not  the  traditional   static   stretching   that   is   proven   to   have   little   benefit   and   many   even   do   more   harm   than   good.     When   most   people   think   of   stretching   they   think   of   toe   touches,   quad   stretches,   and   other   techniques   that   isolate   an   individual   muscle   in   a   lengthened   position   for   10   seconds.     Golf   fitness  and  Titleist  research  shows  that  stretching  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  reduce  injury   risk  and  may  actually  hurt  performance,  holding  a  stretch  will  activate   a   protective   reflex   that   temporarily   weakens   muscles.     Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   get   me   wrong,  stretching  can  increase  flexibility  but  it  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  boost  muscular   efficiency.  Still  confusedâ&#x20AC;Ś  think  of  the  analogy  this  way,  when  you  just   stand   there   and   statically   stretch   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   kind   of   like   you   purchased   some   empty  land,  and  forgot  to  develop  any  real  estate.    Dynamic  warm  up  is   development  of  real  estate.    

Dynamic  stretching   accomplishes   two   main   jobs;   recruits   the   major   MRLQWV OLNH KLSV DQG VKRXOGHUV WR GRPLQDWH DQG DFWLYDWH EORRG Ă&#x20AC;RZ WR the   cold   muscles.     Examples   of   dynamic   stretching   would   be   arm   swings,  arm  circles,  leg  swings,  walking  lunges,  and  arms  crossed   IXOO VTXDWV  :KDW WKHVH DIRUHPHQWLRQHG FUHDWH DUH ORQJWHUP PRELOLW\ WKURXJK LQFUHDVHG Ă&#x20AC;H[LELOLW\ DQG VWUHQJWK  2Q D practical  note,  I  try  to  always  have  my  students  warm  up  in   a  dynamic  way;  in  my  opinion  I  think  dynamic  stretching   tricks  the  nervous  system  into  relaxing.       In   closing,   hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   a   tip   from   the   top:   never   force   cold  muscles  to  move  in  unnatural  ways.    If  you   DUH JHWWLQJ ROG DQG ORRVLQJ \RXU Ă&#x20AC;DW EHOO\ , recommend  that  as  a  warm  up,  all  you  have  to   GRLVMRJVORZO\IRUPLQXWHVWKHQG\QDPLF VWUHWFK IRU  PLQXWHV WKHUHÂśV \RXU QHZ warm  up!    Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  that  easy.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Swaneyâ&#x20AC;?  to  his  friends,  and  he  had  many  of  them! By  R.J.  Smiley In  the  days  before  the  iPod,  if  you  listened  to  music  outside  you  had  a  â&#x20AC;&#x153;ghetto  blasterâ&#x20AC;?   sometimes  referred  to  as  a  â&#x20AC;&#x153;boom  boxâ&#x20AC;?.    Swaney,  whose  family  lived  on  Hastings  CC,   grew  up  on  the  golf  course.    From  an  early  age  he  eagerly  waited  to  play  a  few  holes  with   his  dad  after  supper.    He  spent  hours  on  the  putting  green  chipping  and  putting  and  learned   to  compete  beating  the  bigger  kids  out  of  nickels  and  dimes. 7KRXJK QRW D SXUH VZLQJHU KH EHFDPH VFUDSS\ JHWLWXSDQGIURPDQ\ZKHUH VFUDWFK player.    Once  you  got  to  know  Swaney,  you  loved  him;  he  always  had  big  smile  and  a   quick  wit  to  go  along  with  all  his  little  nervous  tics  and  twitches.    Swaney  loved  to  needle   his  opponent,  and  often  screamed  his  favorite  expression,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;God  I  love  that  power  fade!â&#x20AC;?   DIWHUKLWWLQJWKHIDLUZD\RQDSUHVVXUHÂżOOHGWHHVKRW %XW 6ZDQH\ KDG RQH ELJ SUREOHP  KH JRW VR K\SHG XS DV WKH WHQVLRQ JUHZ LQ ELJ tournaments,  he  many  times  made  unforced  errors.    He  tried  alcohol  and  an  occasional   joint  to  keep  himself  calm.    He  was  always  looking  for  the  answer. When   I   got   the   pairing   sheet   for   the   annual   Hildebrandt   Invitational   Tournament,   at   Hastings  Country  Club,  I  was  happy  to  see  that  I  was  playing  with  my  old  friend  Greg   6ZDQVRQ:KHQ,ÂżUVWVDZ6ZDQH\SUDFWLFLQJKLVSRZHUIDGHRQWKHUDQJHKHKDGDVHW of  earphones  on  his  head.    When  I  walked  over  to  shake  hands  and  say  hello,  he  jerked  the   HDUSKRQHVRIIDQGVDLGÂł5-,KDYHWKHDQVZHU&ODVVLFDO0XVLFLWNHHSVPHFDOP6HH I  even  have  two  young  caddies,  one  for  my  clubs  and  one  for  my  boom  box.â&#x20AC;? When   the   starter   announced,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now   on   the   tee   from   Hastings   Country   Club,   Greg   Swanson,   play   away   please.â&#x20AC;?     Swaney,   dressed   in   new   white   FootJoys,   black   shorts   DQG D QHZ +DVWLQJV && ORJR VKLUW KH VWLOO ORRNHG VFUXII\  VRPH JX\V \RX MXVW FDQÂśW clean  up),  removed  his  earphones  and  teed  it  up  with  a  relaxed  look  on  his  face.    His   H[SUHVVLRQLPPHGLDWHO\FKDQJHGKHSRSSHGXSWKHSRZHUIDGHGLUHFWO\WRZDUGWKHODNH that  guards  the  right  side  of  the  fairway.    We  all  held  our  breath  as  the  ball  came  to  rest  on   a  point  of  land  that  jutted  into  the  lake.    Swaney  leaped  off  the  elevated  tee  and  took  off,   then  remembered  his  relaxing  boom  box.    With  earphones  on  and  a  caddie  on  each  side   Swaney  strolled  to  his  ball.     The  lie  was  okay,  but  Swaney  was  forced  to  play  his  bread  and  butter  shot,  the  power  fade,   around  a  big  tree  on  the  far  side  of  the  pond.    Swaney  and  his  club  caddie  were  standing   on  the  sliver  of  land  that  extended  into  the  pond.    The  relaxed  Swaney  said  to  his  young   caddie,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Son,  I  am  going  to  cut  this  one  right  around  that  big  tree.    So  watch  it  close,   IROORZWKHEDOOĂ&#x20AC;LJKWZLWK\RXUH\HV´7KHH[FLWHGFDGGLHKDQGHG6ZDQH\KLVFOXEDQG placed  the  bag  on  his  shoulder,  ready  to  go.     The  â&#x20AC;&#x153;relaxedâ&#x20AC;?  Swaney  was  getting  nervous  and  twitchy.    He  took  two  big  practice  swings,   the  divots  landed  far  into  the  lake.    With  all  eyes  on  the  ball,  Swaney  made  perfect  contact,   his  ball  made  the  right  turn  around  the  tree  toward  the  green.    Then  we  heard  a  scream,   6ZDQH\ÂśVFDGGLHKDGIROORZHGWKHEDOOZLWKKLVH\HVDQGDOVRKLVIHHW+LVÂżUVWVWHSZDV into  the  lake;  he  went  deeper  as  the  slippery  mud  bottom  sucked  him  in. We  spent  the  next  ten  minutes  and  used  all  of  our  towels  cleaning  up  Swaneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  clubs,   bag  and  caddie.    And  bowed  our  heads   to   honor   the   end   of   Swaneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   boom  box!   Swaney  is  now  playing  the  big   golf  course  in  the  sky  and  God   is   watching   his   power   fade.     Every   member   of   Hastings   CC  has  a  Greg  Swanson  story,   he  left  his  mark!

BRI  RADTKE Columbia  Golf  Club,   Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  the  funniest  thing  you  have  ever  seen  on  the  golf  course?    I  saw  a  guy   Minneapolis tee  off,  almost  whiff  and  the  ball  ended  up  somehow  hitting  his  ankle.    Looked   like  it  hurt,  but  pretty  funny. Tell   us   what   you   do   during   the   golf   off-­ season.    Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  a  full  time  grad  student,  taking   classes   at   the   U   of   M   in   the   program   of   Physical  Therapy. Why   did   you   decide   to   pursue   a   career   in   â&#x20AC;&#x153;beverage   distributionâ&#x20AC;?   at   your   golf   course?    I  really  enjoy  the  game  of  golf;  I   absolutely  love  the  outdoors  and  socializing   with  other  people;  there  is  no  better  job  in  the  summer  than  bev  cart! Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  the  best  tip  you  have  ever  received  from  a  golfer...monetarily  or  other?    I  sold  a  diet   coke  for  $2.50,  a  lady  gave  me  a  $20  bill  and  said  keep  the  change.    I  asked,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are  you  sure?â&#x20AC;?  and   she  insisted.

What  hobbies  do  you  have  away  from  the  golf  course?    Anything  outside  on   DEHDXWLIXOVXPPHUGD\,ORYHWRUXQELNHVZLPÂżVKVXQWDQHWFDQG,HQMR\ just  hanging  out  with  my  friends. What  is  your  favorite  drink?    Blended  strawberry  daiquiri.    Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  good  thing   we  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  have  blenders  on  the  cart  or  no  one  else  would  get  served. Do  you  play  golf?    How  well?    Yes!  I  grew  up  with  it;  golf  is  a  part  of  my  family.     I  played  all  throughout  high  school  and  one  year  of  college.    Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  okay,  but  not  as   good  as  I  want  to  be.    Story  of  a  golfers  life. When  your  â&#x20AC;&#x153;careerâ&#x20AC;?  as  a  beverage  cart  girl  is  over  what  are  your  goals  in  life?     Well,  I  hope  to  graduate  in  2  years  with  a  Doctorate  of  Physical  Therapy;  ideally   I  would  love  to  work  in  a  sports  therapy  clinic,  rehabilitating  athletes.
