Short game experts will put on a clinic

If Pitt Meadows Golf Club members are among the best chippers and putters in Lower Mainland golf, there’s a reason.

If Pitt Meadows Golf Club members are among the best chippers and putters in Lower Mainland golf, there’s a reason.

They’ve been learning for three years from the masters of golf’s short game – Dave Stockton and his son, Dave Jr.

The club is now extending an invitation to non-members, male and female, to enter a draw to become one of 10 lucky guests at two clinics scheduled for July 16 at the club (13615 Harris Rd.).

To enter the draw, contact Caylen Wallace, director of marketing and sales, at cwallace@pittmeadowsgolf.com or phone 604-465-5431.

Successful invitees will be notified by July 10.

Pitt Meadows Golf Club members participate each Wednesday in a Men’s Night event, and the Stocktons have joined a Men’s Night each July since 2012.

“They are honorary members of Pitt Meadows GC and have been generous in sharing their time and their short game expertise with our members.” said club pro Neil Roberts.

The Stocktons are famed for their own skills – Dave Sr. being a five-time major winner on the PGA and Champions Tours as well as a Ryder Cup Captain.

They are especially well known for their expertise and specialized training programs in all aspects of the short game.

The two clinics, scheduled at 10:45 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., will take place at the club’s practice facilities, which now include a brand new driving range.
