EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

For most of us, the past few days have been uncharted waters.  With so much uncertainty on the horizon, we wanted to reach out to our members and share some things we can all do to keep us engaged in our business until we can return to our normal lives.  We have compiled a list of online activities through both the PGA of America as well as many of our vendors and Section partners.  We hope that you will use these not just to pass the time, but as an opportunity to draw on these tools to better prepare you for this season and beyond.

Educational Resources: Below is a short list of links on the internet that were sourced by a teacher on our behalf. The TNPGA is not promoting any of these as being better than anything you are currently using, rather just providing links that could be useful for you at this time.
