TESTIMONIALS

Both of my boys are playing championship level high school golf.  There was a clear gap in their approach in how they were preparing for tournaments, and how they were managing their games around different courses.  In fact, I observed it was the last component needed to reach more consistent success in their games.  This certainly appears to be a gap for most high-level high school and college players.

The good news is we found Worth Blackwelder, a caddie on the LPGA Tour for decades.   Worth has the patience and desire to help young players learn a tour-like approach.

Worth spent the entire practice round mapping out the course and teaching the boys how to think and prepare for each hole.  In fact, he even prepared a tour-like yardage book for use during the real tournament. 

I have never seen the boys more prepared, and as a result more confident to play in the 2019-Kentucky Junior Amateur.  The result for both boys;  Alexander shot even par for both days and finished 8th and his younger brother Cameron shot 8 over and finished top-25.

Better yet, this skill is now utilized by the boys in all practice rounds.  This is a skill set I could have never taught them, and an approach that will be used for years to come.

Darren Bassel - Golf Dad

We feel fortunate to have given our daughter the opportunity to benefit from Worth's years of experience as a caddie on the LPGA Tour.  His insights into preparation, course management, and the mental aspects of the game have been invaluable to our daughter's progress as a competitive golfer.
