The free clinic is part of the 2013 Mylan Classic schedule. 

At the clinic, professional golfers will explain basic golf skills and introduce youngsters to the game, a lifetime sport that fosters physical fitness, cooperation, self-confidence and sportsmanship for players of all ages. 

Clubs and other equipment will be provided. Advance registration is not required, and families are welcome to bring their cameras. 

“This is a wonderful opportunity for young people to try out the game or pick up a few tips from the pros,” says Justin Barroner, director of the professional golf management program at Cal U. “Golf is a sport that almost anyone can enjoy. It’s fun even for beginners, yet it’s challenging enough to keep players involved for a lifetime.”

The Mylan Classic will be held from July 29-Aug. 4 at Southpointe Golf Club.
