The Roncalli Girls Golf team hosted its 4th Middle School Girls Golf Clinic on Saturday May 1st at Otte Golf. The weather was perfect and all the girls performed very well. Time was spent on the green putting and chipping. Coach Stelzel taught them that over 40% of strokes they take playing golf are around and on the green and by getting better there, they can improve their scores quicker.
Time was also spent on hitting with drivers and other clubs. The emphasis here was that by taking the correct grip and stance, they have a good chance of making a good shot.
Coach Stelzel may have another golf clinic in the fall.
