Ken Green to Speak at the Historic Winter Park Country Club

The Winter Park Country Club is very honored to have Mr. Ken Green as our guest for the November edition of our Golf Lecture Series, presented by the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.



Green was born in Danbury, Connecticut. He started playing golf at age 12 in Honduras, where his father, Martin "Marty" Green, was principal of the American school and his only choices were golf or soccer. He quit school at 16 but returned later to finish. He attended and graduated from Palm Beach Junior College and attended the University of Florida for one year. After school he worked to pursue his dream of becoming a professional tour player. He turned pro in 1979 and joined the PGA Tour in 1980.

Green had 5 wins on the PGA Tour; all his wins came in the mid to late 1980s. His first win came in 1985 at the Buick Open, and his last was at the Kmart Greater Greensboro Open in 1989. His best year in professional golf was 1988, when he won two events on the PGA Tour and the Dunlop Phoenix in Japan. His best finish in a major was a T-7 at the 1996 U.S. Open. He played on the 1989 Ryder Cup Team.


Green lives in West Palm Beach, Florida. He has two sons, Ken Jr. and Hunter. He is an avid bowler who has rolled three 300 games.


In June 2009, Green was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident when his motor home left the road. Green was in the back of his recreational vehicle traveling on Interstate 20 near Meridian, Mississippi, when the right front tire blew, causing the RV to veer off the road and go down a deep embankment before hitting a tree. The accident killed Green's brother, William, who Green said was driving; Green's girlfriend, Jeanne Hodgin; and Nip, Green's German Shepherd. Even though his lower right leg was amputated as a result of injuries suffered in the accident, Green has vowed to return to competitive golf.


The "Voice of Golf" Mr. Peter Kessler is scheduled to emcee the event once again.

IMG DAVID LEADBETTER GOLF ACADEMY

IMG DAVID LEADBETTER ACADEMY




I'm very pleased to announce that I recently became an official recruiter for the IMG David Leadbetter Academy in Bradenton, FL. I will cover the greater Orlando and Daytona Beach areas.

MORE ABOUT THE ACADEMY:

The David Leadbetter Golf Academy has impacted junior golf more than any other academy in the country. In the past 13 years the academy has produced 112 AJGA All-Americans, 8 AJGA Players of the Year, 2 AJGA Sportsmanship award winners, 2 United States Amateur Champions, 2 United States Girls Junior Champions. We are very proud of all our students, but when we think of all 112 of our All-Americans, we truly realize the impact our students have made over the years. This accomplishment alone represents golfers at their best. Selection to the All-American teams is based on performance in AJGA tournaments, as well as the non-AJGA national tournaments throughout the country. David Gossett, Aree Song, Casey Wittenberg, Seung Su Han, Paula Creamer, Julieta Granada and Peter Uihlein round out the group of DLGA graduates who have achieved the highest honor in junior golf by earning AJGA Player of the Year honors.


In the past year alone, DLGA students won over 50 national junior titles. DLGA had 12AJGA All-Americans in 2007 as well as three members of the 2007 Junior Solheim Cup Team. Also, in 2007 we had 34 FCWT wins (in the older division), 10 independent national tournament wins and 7 AJGA wins.


Their male alumni have also had great success on the PGA tour, collecting three over all titles. The women have had 5 winners on tour collecting a total of 12 wins. We have produced 13 LPGA tour members, 4 PGA Tour members as well as numerous professionals playing on the Asian Tour, the Futures Tour, and the European Tour as well as numerous other smaller tours around the world. Their alumni include such pros as Paula Creamer, Sean O’Hair, Julieta Granada, Aree and Naree Song, Candy Hanneman, Miriam Nagl, Virada Nirapathpongporn, Taylor Leon, Oh Ji Young, Jeanne Cho, Yani Tseng, Carolina Llano, David Gossett and Ty Tryon. Casey Wittenberg who just secured his 2009 PGA tour card finished in a tie for 13th at the masters at age 19. Just recently we had a current student, Jessica Korda finish tied for 19th in the Women’s US Open.


DLGA Bradenton offers some of the finest facilities in golf training. Facilities include: par 72, 7,000 yard golf course at the IMG Academies Golf & Country Club, a 30-acre double-ended driving range, which includes 3740 sq. ft. of Cover shots covered hitting space. Beneath the Cover shots is EZ Tee Synthetic Range Turf for optimum performance. Recently installed was a 2673 sq. ft. nylon synthetic putting green with a zoysia fringe to compliment the already massive short game area. Opening this summer is a brand new 7,300 sq. ft Golf Admin Building (an indoor hitting bay with state-of-the-art biomechanics, club fitting/testing facility, pro shop and numerous video rooms).
