FUTURE CHAMPIONS

GOLF MAGAZINE Dear Junior Golf Community, The Future Champions Golf Digital Magazine launched in March 2021 and aims to become the leading junior golf publication worldwide. This is an exciting time in the game of golf as the sport is booming on all levels. In recent years, golf was really only growing in competitive golf but since the pandemic hit and people’s interests have changed, golf has become the game of choice for many. In each issue of the magazine, we have goals to inspire junior golfers and educate parents on the process of becoming a great player and more importantly, how to love the game. We think golf is so important for families and wish every family could golf together for a lifetime. As a parent, what more could you want than being able to spend several hours out on the golf course with your kids for a lifetime. We hope you enjoy our third issue. Should you have any feedback or interests for future issues, please let us know. Advertisers, please contact us for more information on how to be involved with our growing community. As always, we hope you play the game with passion, keep your head up high, walk with a purpose and enjoy your time outdoors playing golf. Chris Smeal President and Founder of Future Champions Golf Head Coach at the FCG Academy in Stadium Golf Center

Omni La Costa Resort & Spa Carlsbad, California By Dean Gregory, May 12, 2021 What New York City is to fashion design, Carlsbad, California is to golf. Four of the top golf equipment manufacturers make their home there, including Callaway Golf. It is also home to the Omni La Costa Golf Resort. One of the two resorts that have an iconic history of hosting PGA, and LPGA tour events since 1965. Along with professional events, it has also been the host course for college and junior golf tournament. Starting in 2024 and on through 2026, Omni La Costa Golf will be the host the NCAA DI National Championship for both men’s and women’s teams. But prior to that, it will be the host course in August 2021 for three Future Champions Golf tournaments: August 1 – 2 August 3 – 5 August 8 – 9

FCG Invitational at La Costa Resort FCG College National Championship FCG Odyssey U12 Junior Championship

Omni La Costa Golf consists of two courses the Legends and the Champions. During the World Match Play Championship (1999-2006), the PGA used holes from both courses. Between 2011-2013 both courses were renovated to improve the drainage. Four new holes were added to the Champions course and many of the greens were elevated. The design of the course strategically promotes exciting finishes of any tournament. The Legends is more traditionally design featuring plenty of gentle doglegs making it a shot makers paradise. So, whether you are playing in a tournament or just looking for a casual relaxing round or two, why not play a course where many of the greats have walked before you. Just 30 miles north of San Diego, it’s definitely worth the drive to play and soak in all of the history.

BE YOUR OWN BEST CADDIE! How is your inner dialogue when you step into a shot? Is it positive? Is it filled with fear? Is it scrambling for swing thoughts? Or do you have a rock solid pre and post-shot routine which allows you to “Be Your Own Best Caddie?” We’ve all had penty of time this past year to work on every aspect of our game, what did you choose to work on, the mental or physical aspect of the game? Did you take this opportunity to sit down and reflect on all the strengths and weaknesses of your golf game? If not, it’s never too late to start. I’m sure most of you who are taking the time to read this article, will agree that golf is a difficult game and challenges every aspect of our mental and physical being. What makes one golfer better than another? Is it the equipment, instruction, experience, talent, club head speed, athleticism, practice time, tall, short or if all being equal, would we agree the golfer who can manage their thoughts and emotions; who understands the importance of breath control and visualization will most likely shoot a lower score than those who can’t? All golfers have, and will always have moments of frustration and joy playing this wonderful game. The moment you choose to work with diligence on the mental side of your golf game, it will give you the skills and tools you need to harness the thoughts and engergy needed to experience for better results on and off the golf course.

10

There are no guarantees in this game or life. No matter how hard you work or who might be your coach, or what facilities you have. I would highly recommend you speak or work with a sports psychologist, mental coach or someone within martial arts, to learn the skills neccessary to play golf and live life to it’s fullest. If you’re goal is to play your best golf, then having the ability to manage your thoughts and emotions through pertinent, appropriate strategies is one of the best techniques you can have in your arsenal in order to play this game at the highest level. Every tour player has a unique pre and post-shot routine. Ultimately, their goal is to have a consistent and repeatable every time before stepping into the shot. This simple routine allows the right side of the brain to come alive and play golf. This is where the inner dialogue will become your best friend or your worst enemy. Success during my collegiate coaching career at Oregon State Univerity and The United States Military Academy can be pinpointed directly to the techniques and strategies I learned through the mentorship of leading sports psychologists. What an honor and privilege it has been to work with these amazing professionals. While coaching at Oregon State University we worked closely with Dr. Jerry Lynch. Dr. Lynch gave us the


tools to visualize, meditate and control our breath. Then, in 2010, while coaching at USMA at West Point, I met Dr. Zinsser. Dr. Zinsser worked closely with Dr. Bob Rotella, a world renowned sports psychologist within the golf world. After implementation of positive mental techniques, the Army West Point Cadets were better equipped to find clarity and peace on and off the golf course. Can you imagine a collegiate golf team coming together prior to practice, acknowledging the daily goals and visualizing the day’s practice? There’s something magical about seeing yourself hitting that perfect wedge shot or hearing 5 foot putts drop in the hole. These visualization strategies were woven into practices, team meetings and tournament preperation and competition. You have to play the game of golf in the present! When you learn the techniques for managing your thoughts and emotions, controlling your breath and visualizing successful shots, you’re giving yourself the best opportunity to win the moment. Most junior golfers mistake “being in the present” for being serious and focused over the golf ball. Being in the present really means, believing and trusting your assessment of the situation and committing to the process for the best outcome. How you talk to yourself on the course when you’re practicing or competing? Is your inner dialogue positive or negative? If you caddie for a friend or another player, would you ever tell them during the round how horrible they’re playing? Would you tell them over and over that they will never be good enough to play college golf? Then why in the world would you ever say this to yourself? There is absolutely no competitive advantage to talking negatively to yourself. “I have to get mad and let my anger out, it helps me focus.” This statement always leaves me scratching my head. What about having little to no emotional attachment to the result of a golf shot? Is it possible? It is! Using mental strategies to rise above negative emotions, keeps you, not only in the game, but in the moment and within that golf shot. Take time, reflect and evaluate your practices. We all love hitting drivers, wedges and specialty shots, but how much of your daily practice is dedicated to your mental game? This is by far, the most neglected aspect of the game for junior golfers. Can you control your breath? Can you visualize signing your scorecard with a smile and knowing regardless of the score, you played your best golf for that specific round? Can you see yourself hitting a ball into a penalty area and not allowing this shot affect the next one? Is your inner dialogue positive? If you commit to learning these important strategies early in your golf journey, they will become habits and make you a more complete golfer who will be ready for the next step. A tour caddie acts as the bridge to success for many professional golfers. While it’s important to know the game inside and out, its just as important for a caddie to meet the needs of their player’s needs in the moment. They will most likely stay positive, regardless if it was a good or bad result. Can you imagine a caddie

voicing his/her fear of a 4’ straight uphill putt? A great caddie is present and in the moment for their player every step of the way. You have the choice to identify the challenges on the course, so allow yourself to make the game less stressful and more enjoyable by being your own best caddie! “Just dedicate 5 minutes a day to working on your mental game and it will pay dividends. It’s 5 minutes. You can commit to that!” —Tim Mickelson Former OSU player, friend and colleague Tim Mickelson, is a perfect example of an amazing caddie. Tim knows the game inside and out, he’s a great player and is not shy about building his brother up during a tournament. I’m so honored to have coached this young man and am proud to have watched him grow into one of the best caddies out on tour. His success is a direct result of positive strategies and preparation.

WHAT ABOUT YOUR GAME: • How do you talk to yourself on and off the course? • Are you positive with your inner dialogue of can you do better? • Are you sincerely believing and trusting your words? • Do you have the tools to keep your emotions in check? These subtle changes will impact your life on and off the course. Life is difficult, so let’s make a positive change starting today with your game. Your peers and interested college coaches are watching you on the course and how you handle adversity. If your knee-jerk reaction is anger or emotional escalation you’re not giving yourself a competitive edge. What’s even worse, you’re not giving your teammates your best contribution. You owe yourself, your team and your golf future the best you have everyday and it all starts with managing your thoughts and emotions and keeping the inner dialogue as posititve as possible. I can’t wait to hear your feedback! Enjoy A Better Walk! Coach Watts Coach Watts Consulting brian@coachwattsconsulting.com 541-231-4653

ARE YOU PLAYING IN FLOW? By: Dr. Rick Sessinghaus, PGA I am fortunate to coach many elite golfers and help them play golf in the optimal state of flow. What is flow? Have you ever played a round when you were fully immersed in the moment, enjoying the round, clear on exactly what you wanted to do, belief you had the skills to perform the shot, and played great? That is a flow state. There are a few key factors that help you play in a flow state.

3. Prime your emotional state- too many golfers allow the result of the golf shot to dictate their emotions. Flow is linked to enjoying the present moment. Before you hit the first tee shot for the day get into the optimal emotional state by remembering great past shots and why you love golf. Another very powerful emotion is gratitude, remind yourself that you are fortunate to tee it up that day.

1. Flow follows focus- are you paying attention to the present shot? Or are you distracted by the future or the past shot. Use your pre-shot routine to ask present based questions like- “how will this lie affect the ball flight or where is the wind coming from right now?” The opposite of focus is being distracted. Distractions include too many swing thoughts, fear of hitting a poor shot, or the importance of the shot.

4. Embrace Challenge- Flow actually comes from taking on challenge, not wishing things were easy. You are going to get better when you take on a challenge and whether it goes how you want, you can always learn. Flow is about constantly being in the present moment with the attitude of curiosity to learn. Golf provides us a wonderful opportunity to grow as a person. Applying the skill of present moment focus, creating clear goals, managing your emotional state, and looking forward to the next challenge will help you expand your skills on and off the course.

2. You have a clear goal for the shot. Have you ever hit a great trouble shot? I believe we all have pulled off those shots off because we took on the challenge of the shot and had a very clear visualization of what we want to accomplish. Seeing your shot with as much detail as possible helps you also focus. A simple, yet powerful question to ask is, “what does a good shot look like here?”

3 THINGS TO CHANGE

To Be Confident

Right Now If you aren’t shooting the scores that you want, the problem is probably not your swing and the solution is probably not adding two hours of practice to your daily routine. The fastest way to drop a few strokes right away is to improve your confidence. You might believe you have to be born confident. Or you may believe confidence comes from the things you do, like the putts you make or the scores you shoot. It’s also possible that you believe that confidence comes from things people say about you. Golfers, confidence doesn’t come from any of these places. Your confidence is not linked to whether or not you won a tournament, shot under par this week, or shanked a ball in the water.

18

Confidence comes from what and how you think about yourself. And the beauty about this is that you get to choose what you think about yourself. When it comes to your game, you don’t even need evidence. I work with plenty of players who believe that they can shoot below par, even if they haven’t actually done it yet. They choose to believe this because they truly believe it’s possible. Do you know what happens to these players? They start shooting under par. The exciting thing is that you can believe this about any part of your game, and see tangible improvement as a result.


SO, HERE ARE 3 THINGS YOU CAN START DOING TODAY TO INCREASE YOUR CONFIDENCE:

1 2 3

Choose to believe you’re a fierce competitor, or that you’re a great putter, or that you have the ability to win any tournament. Tell yourself until you believe it. You can even put a note on your bag or your ball to help remind you. Keep commitments to yourself no matter what. If you say you’re going to get up at 6:30 a.m. to work out, you do it. If you tell yourself you’re going to put in 3 hours of practice today, you do it. This will help you to trust yourself and when trust is high, doubt fades away and your self confidence will increase. Imagine your future. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? How’s your game? How do you carry yourself? What awards or scholarships have you won? The more you look to the future, the stronger your belief will be that what you envision in it can actually happen. Do these three things and you will start to see what you’re capable of. And that’s the real game-changer!

Tale of Two Brooke’s By Dean Gregory - May 11, 2021 Mahler and Gelinas are the last names of two FCG golfers who share the same first name, Brooke. But that’s not all they share. These White River High School athletes also share a passion and competitive spirit in golf and basketball. They are best friends in every aspect of the word. Here’s a little look into their life. DG: Can you tell me how you met? BG: Oh, how we met? We played basketball together for a school club team in seventh grade. BM: Yeah, seventh, eighth grade. BG: And then I introduced Brooke (Mahler) a little bit into golf. I told her she should play. BM: Yeah, I started in my freshman year. I mean a did a little before, but it was mostly freshman year. DG: You’re both juniors? BM: Yeah BG: Yeah, we’re both juniors. DG: Tell me how you got close. Because to me you guys seem like sisters. BG: Pretty much BM: Yeah, for all our tournaments, we travel together. And then for school, we have all our classes together. We just do a lot of stuff together. BG: We played basketball together everyday after school and golf. We don’t really have any time apart from each other. So, we kind of had to get close. DG: Makes sense. So, what happens when you go to college. Are you planning on going to the same college too? Or? BG: No, we’ll probably go to different colleges. But maybe we’ll compete against each other. BM: Yeah DG: What schools do you think you want to go to? BM: I’m not sure where I want to go yet. I’m thinking out of state somewhere. Somewhere with nicer weather. BG: Um, I’m thinking of Dixie State University, which is in St. George, Utah. And I’m also looking at a school in Nashville, and one in California. DG: Tell me more about golf. Do you practice together? BG: For high school golf, we play a lot together and practice pretty much every day for that. When it starts to get to summer, we practice at the same location for the most part but not necessarily at the same time though. We’ll like play rounds together or whatever. It just happens. We don’t plan on practicing at the exact same time. But we have the same home course. BM: All of the tournaments that we go to, usually we travel together because we are in the same ones and then we just do our practice rounds together. DG: How much traveling have you done? I know I’ve seen you guys in Oregon a lot and Las Vegas. I know you also have done some stuff in Southern California. How do you like traveling for golf? BM: I like it. BG: Yeah. I don’t like Washington weather, so anytime we can get out of here, we try to. DG: How do you feel like your golf

game has come along? BM: Mine has improved a lot. Because in when I started out freshman year, I was in the 90’s, and hundreds. And now I’m able to shoot in the 70’s more frequently. I’ve started to up my practice time, so I think that’s helped a lot. BG: For me, I feel like I’ve definitely improved. I averaged in the high 70’s my freshman year. Now I’m more in the middle 70s for my junior year. I’ve definitely seen a lot of progression. And I think it’s really helped to travel for golf. I’ve also started taking lessons at a school. DG: Travel helps you with your golf? BG: I feel like just playing on different types of courses. Definitely. It helps improve my game and it helps me learn new shots. I’ll go down to Arizona because I have a lot of family there. It’s a totally different style of courses than here in Washington. I just think it’s good just to play on different courses. Because I know in college, I’ll probably will not be playing on courses that are in Washington. Also, conditions are a lot better in warmer climates than what we have here too. BM: I think when I play on a new course, it makes you focus more because you’re not used to it. So, you have to put more attention into certain shots. DG: That makes sense. So, I have to ask Brooke (Gelinas). Your dad is a PGA Pro. How much of an influence has he had on you? BG: Oh, a lot, for sure. I mean, when we hit the range, everybody knows that we’re related because our swings are pretty similar. Um, he’s been my coach for since I started golf, which I started tournament golf at age nine. So, he’s definitely had a huge influence. He’s helped me a lot with my game and as its progressed. But this year was actually my first year getting a different coach. And so now I have a Swing Coach. And then my dad is just my regular coach and it it’s not like a bad thing or anything. It’s just a different perspective, which is nice since he’s been doing it for so long. DG: Well, I know your dad is really proud of you. Knowing Brooke’s dad, has that had any influence on you as well? BM: Yeah, it’s been nice because the tournament’s we traveled together. So, if I have a bad day, he can usually give me a few tips and help me keep a positive mindset for the next day. So, it’s been nice, good. When they are not on the course or court, you would probably still see them together just hanging out. Whether it’s studying, going to the nearby lake, or even just walking their puppies, there’s no doubt that these best friends share a special bond that I’m sure will last a lifetime. 23


Tournament Recap

12th Annual FCG Las Vegas Championship

The 12th Annual FCG Las Vegas Championship was our biggest one in history with just over 270 junior golfers competing over the two weekends. Usually we have all divisions compete the same weekend but with an abundance of demand the past few years we expanded the event over two weekends and it was a huge success for all. The first weekend on April 3-4th we had the Girls 13-14, Boys 11-12, Girls 11-12, Boys 9-10, Girls 9-10, Boys 7-8, and Girls 7-8 compete over two days to determine the Championship. Primm Valley Golf Course has been the home every year for this special event and we are thrilled to bring players from all over the Western USA to compete at the Tom Fazio gem, literally located in the middle of nowhere. Thank you to all the players and families for making the effort to come compete at Primm and we hope you had an awesome time. This annual event is also a qualifying event for the winner of every age division earning an exemption into the IMG Academy Junior World Championship. This event is also a qualifier for the annual FCG Callaway World Junior Golf Championship with the top 2 finishers earning an exemption to compete. Here is how the top finishers played: Final Leaderboard > Link to Photos > Girls 13-14 Division 15 girls competed in this division and the scores were insanely good.

Our 2nd place finisher with a second round 4 over par and 9 over total is Hailey Zhao from Woodland Hills, CA. The 2021 champion for this division is Beverley Cui from Atherton, CA with two impressive rounds of 2 over par and then -2 for an even par total. Excellent scores ladies! (Week 2) April 10 & 11, 2021 Golfers in both the Boys and Girls 15-18, Boys 13-14 divisions converged to the high desert Primm Valley GC just south of Las Vegas. They came from all over the West Coast and Rocky Mountain states. The weather was perfect which meant that weekend was going to be primed for some great golf. As the weekend unfolded, the golf wasn’t great, it was AMAZING! Day 1 // Twenty-eight players in the Boys 15-18 playing on the Desert Course went even par or lower. With William Walsh (2023) of San Mateo, CA leading the way shooting a -7, 65. But the overnight leader wasn’t alone at the top because Jason Bannister (2021) of Laguna Niguel, CA came in with a -6, 66. Right behind him were three players at -5. On the Lakes Course, Angela Heo (2022) of Murrieta, CA in the Girls 15-18 division also went low. Posting a -7, 64 she took a commanding 5-stroke lead overnight. Mizara Norton (2024) of Las Vegas, NV found herself in 2nd place following the leader after shooting a -2, 69. With two girls 7-strokes back behind the leader after coming in with scores of even par. The lowest round of the day was posted by Ethan Lien (2025) of Cupertino, CA with a -8, 63. He led the Boys 13-14 overnight sitting on a 4-stroke lead over Trenton Stuart (2026) of Lake Havasu City, AZ who shot a -4, 67. Day 2 // The final round proved to be as equal if not more exciting than the finish at The Masters. Just like Hideki Matsuyama, William Walsh started the day knowing he would have to play as well as he did in the first round. And play well he did, after dropping his birdie on Hole 3, he got into the zone and ended up shooting a -6, 66. That was enough for


his 3-stroke victory. While Walsh was on his game the players chasing him were grinding hard to catch up to him. Ian Fritz (2022) of Las Vegas, NV also shot at -6, 66. Which gave him a 2-day total of -10 for the 2nd place finish. Timothy Cavarno (2021) of Redlands, CA carded a -3, 69 for 3rd place. Both Nathan Sampson (2023) of Temecula, CA, and Curtis DaSilva (2023) of Monterey, CA post a 2-day total of -7 for T4. Angela Heo didn’t have the day she was expecting, shooting a +2, 73. But it was good enough for the championship. Kyndall Newman (2021) of Las Vegas, NV, and Natalie Yen (2025) of West Linn, OR both started the day T11. At the end of the day, they posted a round of even par to climb up the leaderboard for a +2, T2 finish. Yue Xu (2021) of Green Twp, NJ totals to +3 for 4th place. With Gabriella Kano (2022) of Fullerton, CA, and McKenzie Hall (2021) of Las Vegas, NV at +4, T5. The Boys 13-14 division did not disappoint either with nail-biting golf, all the players were grinding, especially Trenton Stuart. Fighting his way from 4-strokes back Stuart posts a -7, 64 to win the championship. Lien who held the overnight lead couldn’t find the same magic on the final round. Although he shot a -1, 70 it wasn’t enough to stave off the hard charging Stuart. But Lien still adds this solid 2nd place finish to his resume’. Andrew Rodriguez (2026) of San Pedro, CA and Joshua Kim (2025) of Danville, CA tied for 4th place.

SOME OF THE LARGEST AND MOST EXCITING ANNUAL EVENTS IN JUNIOR GOLF WORLDWIDE

FCGtour.com 36


PLAYER of the month APRIL 2021

BOYS COLLEGE PREP

William Walsh San Mateo, CA Class of 2023 Playing in his first FCG event of 2021, William shoots a first round -7 65 and found himself the overnight leader by one stroke. As he started the second round, he knew he needed to go low another day if he were to come out on top. Turning in a card of 66 was enough to give himself a 3-stroke victory. It also puts him T3 in the World Series Ranking Points. The exceptional play and consistency, earns him April’s FCG Boys Player of the Month.

GIRLS COLLEGE PREP

Angela Heo Murrieta, CA Class of 2022 Angela’s first 2021 FCG event dominated the field in her opening round shooting a -7 64. Leading the field by 5-strokes going into the second round, she never looked back. Taking the championship by 10-strokes breaks her into a T3 in the FCG World Series Ranking Points. And with her dominant victory, she becomes April’s FCG Girls Player of the Month.
