Meet Kevin Peterson ~ NJGT Site Director Greetings everyone from Wayne, America. My name is Kevin Peterson and I am the president and publisher of Northeast Nebraska Media, Inc. a/k/a the Wayne Herald & Morning Shopper. My only hobby outside of the office is golf and this summer I am honored to be the site director for the Nebraska Junior Golf Tour in Northeast Nebraska. I will be over-seeing events in Columbus, Wayne, Norfolk and North Bend as well as volunteering for other events such as state stroke play, among others. I became involved working with NJGT through Gary Austin a couple years ago and I truly enjoy it. Getting to meet junior golfers and their followers is rewarding, especially when you see them at multiple events. I look forward to getting more involved each year and my goal is to eventually go through all the rules training classes to help run tournaments well into the future. My wife Shannon is a critical care nurse at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. My daughter Brittney just graduated from Wayne High School. She enjoyed a solid high school golf career in which she qualified for state all four years as an individual. She will be attending Wayne State this fall where she looks to continue her golfing on the collegiate level. My son Jared will be a junior this fall at Wayne High School. His passions include running cross country as well as playing golf. This is his first year competing in the NJGT. Being around NJGT I can see the confidence these young golfers gain just through competing in the summer months. It is a great developmental program headed by a number of people that care greatly about the sport of golf in our great State. Feel free to come introduce yourself to me in upcoming events. See you on the links!

Care for the Course Junior Amateur & Girls’ Amateur participants, We’re very fortunate that our member clubs are supportive of amateur golf and are receptive to hosting NGA competitions. I’m pleased that for the most part, participants and spectators at our events conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrate courtesy and sportsmanship at all times and show consideration to the host club. There is one area, however, that I’ve been a bit disappointed in lately and it involves care for the course. As a competitor it’s extremely important that you leave the course in better shape than you find it. Please review the following tips and make them part of your future routine. If you’re a parent take time to visit with your son or daughter to ensure that they’re familiar with the same. If you have a caddie make them aware of these responsibilities.

Carefully repair any divots you make during play. If available on the teeing ground, fill divots from tee shots with sand provided by the club (generally on par 3 holes). Carefully repair any damage to the putting green made by the impact of a ball (fix ball marks whether or not you make them). View Divot Repair Etiquette Animation On completion of a hole by all players, repair any damage caused by golf shoes. Players should enter bunkers from the low side. Before leaving it, they should carefully rake up and smooth over all holes and footprints made by them and any nearby made by others. The rake should then be replaced outside the bunker where it will least likely affect play. View Bunker Etiquette Animation. Place all trash in proper receptacles. Regards, Craig W. Ames Executive Director Nebraska Golf Association

Active Families Engaging in physical activity as a family can be a fun way to get everyone moving. Studies show that kids who believe they are competent and have the skills to be physically active are more likely to be active. And those who feel supported by friends and families to become active, or surrounded by others interested in physical activity, are more likely to participate. Children need 60 minutes of play with moderate to vigorous activity every day, but it doesn't have to occur at once. It all adds up! And remember, sleep is just as important and is an essential part of living an active life. A recent study found that with each extra hour of sleep, the risk of a child being overweight or obese dropped by nine percent. Here are a few activities and steps that can lead to a healthier lifestyle:  Give children toys that encourage physical activity like jump ropes.  Encourage children to join a sports team/try a new activity.  Limit TV time and keep the TV out of a child’s bedroom.  Facilitate a safe walk to and from school a few times a week.  Take the stairs instead of the elevator.  Walk around the block after a meal.  Make a new house rule: no sitting still during television commercials.  Find time to spend together doing a fun activity: family park day, swim day or bike day.  Issue a family challenge to see who can be the first to achieve a Presidential Active Lifestyle Award by committing to physical activity five days a week, for six weeks. Adults and children can both win!  Talk to your children’s principal or write a letter to your district superintendent to incorporate more physical education in schools.  Encourage schools to hold recess prior to lunch to increase physical activity before mealtime.  Volunteer to help with afterschool physical activity programs or sports teams.  Be sure that children get the sleep they need. Most children under age five need to sleep for 11 hours or more per day, children age five to 10 need 10 hours of sleep or more per day, and children over age 10 need at least nine hours per day.

Meet Terry Hexum ~ NJGT Site Director I started playing golf in junior high school and became infatuated with the game. I played on my college golf team but after graduation took a hiatus from golf to further my education and raise my family. I was able to play again in the early ‘80’s which was like starting over but I made relatively quick progress back toward a satisfying game. My most unique golfing experience was getting a hole-in-one at Yankee Hill in Lincoln using a new golf ball imprinted with my granddaughter’s name that I specifically chose to hit on that hole! My second most unique experience was having my second shot on the par 5, no. 8 at Johnny Goodman, hit the cup (but not stay in the cup!). After retiring from the University of Nebraska Medical Center Faculty in 2008 I looked for more and different opportunities to be involved in golf. One of these was the NGA. This is my third year as a volunteer for the NGA and my first year as one of the Site Directors for the NJGT in the Omaha area. I particularly enjoy watching and guiding the junior golfers. Their earnestness and sometimes naivety is fascinating. My wife and I are members at Sunset Valley Country Club and our travel plans include a variety of golf venues from Pebble Beach to Whistling Straits with an extended period of golf during the winter months throughout the Palm Springs area.

Meet Hobart Gay ~ NJGT Site Director My name is Hobart Gay, but most know me by “Hap”. I spent my teens on one of the great golf courses of the country, Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, CA., though I rarely played golf. We lived walking distance from the Club and my parents belonged and we played tennis and I caddied during the summers for spending money. As most kids in the 60’s in southern California I spent most of my time at the beach surfing and hanging out with my friends (golf was for ol’ guys back then). I could have been learning from one of the best teaching pros on one of the great courses in the country. I didn’t take golf seriously until much later on. I was 36 yrs old when I was drawn back into the game. I have since grown to love the game for the traditions and principles that it is grounded in and the mental challenges that it presents. I retired from a career in the Air Force and now use my time to give back to my community with volunteering for several organizations such as CASA, Lancaster Foster Care Review Board and the NGA & NJGT and of course, play as much golf as I can. It gives me a lot of joy to watch our young kids learning a great game and competing at such high levels, being helped along by organizations such as the NGA and the NJGT.

Meet Curt Munson ~ NJGT Site Director My name is Curt Munson of Omaha. I am a graduate of Norfolk High, 1979. My wife’s name is Tanya. I have a 10hdcp with 2 hole in ones. My son, Chase, is 10 years old and a member of the NJGT. I didn’t start playing golf till after college -- once I got started, I have been hooked ever since. I do everything left handed other than Golf -- when I started, I only had right handed clubs to learn with - this will always be my excuse when things are not going to well on the course!!! One unique thing with my wife and I - when she had her 2nd hole in one - I had my 2nd one exactly 1 week later on the same hole and we both used an 8 iron. Needless to say, it was an expensive week! I have really enjoyed working with the NJGT -- it's exciting to see all the young people learning and enjoying this wonderful life-long game called GOLF.
