Kellan Bodenheimer, from Winston Salem, NC

Library

Kellan is a 14 year old super star on the rise. When I first started working with Kellan, he showed a lot of natural talent, but lacked the fundamentals to be consistent under pressure. With the goal of becoming a competitive golfer, we needed to reduce the extra movements in Kellan's swing, and make it more repeatable under pressure.

In less than a year, Kellan improved his putting stroke, short game, swing plane and course management. I was most proud of him for controlling his emotions. It's not an easy feat for a young man, but Kellan took my advice on positive self talk and visualization during a pre shot routine. Last year, he dropped his scoring average by 9 and won numerous trophies. Kellan Bodenheimer has great potential to go all the way. Thank you, Kellan, for giving me a chance to work with you in 2012.

What a score

Congratulations to Ben Schlottman for shooting a 59 at Oak Valley!
Score Card
"You shot WHAT? 59???" It was one of those dinner time phone calls. Although I was eating, I saw it was one of my kids calling. Ben Schlottman, age 16, called to let me know he shot 59 at Oak Valley. I knew he had shot 29, a career low, earlier in the day. He apparently kept the great round going on the back nine too! Congratulations to Ben for shooting what many would consider a round of a life time. As for me, I think it's the first of several rounds in the 50's. Way to go, Ben!"

Carolinas Junior Tournament

Anne Marie would like to congratulate Philip Kelley for qualifying for the Carolinas Junior Championship. Philip showed maturity and exceptional course management.
Philip Kelley
Carolina Junior Qualifying: Last hole-Philip Kelley KNOWS he needs par to advance to the Championship. Water on the left. Bunker short of the green. He has been through enough Course Management to know he should take a conservative line off the tee and then lay up. But Philip hit a great drive. He is more than tempted to go for the green in two. It's only 210 yards.He stops and thinks about it. The boy in him says, "You can hit it to the green and birdie the hole!" But the man in him follows the game plan.He lays up, sticks a wedge, takes an easy par and avoids any big numbers. Philip Kelley WON the mental battle, and qualified for the event. I could not be more proud! Way to go, Philip!!!

The scores were Victor Wiggins -5;Ben Schlottman -4;Will Long -4.The USGA Junior Championship will be in NH, at the Golf Club of New England July 16-21st. This is special for me because I played in this event when I was a kid. There is something "full circle" about coaching a kid who qualified for a tournament of this magnitude. I am very proud.

AJGA (American Junior Golf Association) Burgett H. Mooney, Jr. Championship

Ben Schlottman played in the AJGA (American Junior Golf Association) Burgett H. Mooney, Jr. Championship in Rome, GA. Opening with a 70, Ben established an early top ten position on the score board. Day two was not as kind. He fell to 19th place with a 74. I tried to remind him that as quickly as he went down the leader board, he was quite capable of climbing UP. Rising to the challenge, Ben was the "spoiler" of the day, firing a 65, to finished tied for 3rd. This fantastic finish will grant him more access to other AJGA events in the 2012-2013 season. Congratulations, Ben Schlottman!

Lessons learned

Sometimes, the victory is not shown on the score board. Congratulations to Kellan Bodenheimer for keeping a positive attitude. When faced with a rough day on the course, lesser golfers fold and lose their composure. Kellan kept focused, stayed with his game plan and showed he is a true champion, regardless of the score. I am very proud of how Kellan applied what he learned during his last lesson on course management.

Hole in One!

Ben Hole in One
Usually, my students like to TELL me about their great shots. Tonight, I actually got to SEE "the perfect golf shot". Congratulations to Ben Schlottman, who scored his first Hole in One at Oak Valley on Thursday January 26th.
During a group lesson, surrounded by his friends, Ben hit a beautiful high fading 9 iron 142 yards to a pin, tucked back right on hole #6. The minute it left the club face, I thought, "Get in the hole!" By the time it was fully airborne, I said, "Get in!" It hit three feet long of the hole, spun back, paused on the edge of the cup, and fell in.
Some Hole in Ones are flukes, but this one was pure perfection. Ben described the exact shot he was going to hit, in detail, just before he hit it. Talk about "calling your shot!"
I consider myself blessed to have been there to witness it. Congratulations to Ben. Many, many more!"
_Anne Marie.
Ben and Friends
Ben and his friends witness a Hole in One.

My scramble team made it to Executive Women's Golf Association National Championships, the biggest women's golf tournament in the country.

Although we did not win, we had a great time and scored better thanks to Anne Marie. _Sherry B. Winston-Salem, NC
