'Do Your Part, Play Safe' campaign encourages responsible golf
With golfers of all stripes eager to get out there and tee it up these days, business has been brisk at local courses. This weekend is no different.
That's why we wanted to share some information from an article we came across in the Southern California PGA’s summer edition of the PROgram magazine highlighting its “Do Your Part, Play Safe” initiative in partnership with the SCGA, which encourages responsible golf as the coronavirus persists. It’s an informative campaign that stresses the benefits of playing it safe on the course and urges golf facilities to share that message.
The article was accompanied by the video above, which was released back in early May, but remains relevant today. Check it out — and feel free to share it with your golf buddies.
Also, keep an eye out for signage at your course. It’s on display to help you follow best practices during these uncertain times.
After 14 seasons leading the USC Trojan’s men’s golf team, head coach Chris Zambri and the university have mutually agreed to part ways. There were no specific reasons given for his departure.
During his tenure, Zambri led the Trojans to three Pac-12 titles, three NCAA regional crowns, and a runner-up finish at the NCAA championships in 2008. He also played for the USC golf team from 1989-1993.
"It was an honor to coach my alma mater,” Zambri said in a statement. “I was fortunate to work with so many great teams and players. I want to thank the players, staff, fans and donors who made my time coaching the Trojans so enjoyable. As I move on in my career, I will hold on to those memories and always will be rooting for the USC men's golf program."
It was reported that USC women’s golf coach Justin Silverstein will assist with the men’s program until a replacement for Zambri is found. CLICK HERE to read more.
