TOUR “PRO” FILE – SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER
He did not win in his first 70 starts on the PGA Tour, but Scottie Scheffler has made up for lost time in a big way. He promptly won four out of his next six events, including the Masters. Scheffler’s career is reminiscent of David Duval’s, who also went many tournaments before winning his first event and then winning multiple titles in quick succession. Unfortunately, Duval’s career flamed out four years after his first victory, never winning again, but Scheffler looks to have the longevity that Duval lacked.
Scheffler was a first-team All-American at the University of Texas, where he was in no rush to turn professional, staying all four years and graduating in 2018. In 2019, he played on the Korn Ferry Tour and earned his PGA Tour card for the 2019-2020 season. Although he had yet to win at the PGA Tour level, he was named as a captain’s pick for the 2021 U.S. Ryder Cup team, where he excelled.
谢菲勒是德克萨斯大学的全美一线球员，他并不急于转为职业球员，在那里呆了四年，并于 2018 年毕业。2019 年，他参加了光辉国际巡回赛并获得了2019-2020 美巡赛赛卡。尽管他还没有在美巡赛级别上夺冠，但他被提名 2021 年美国莱德杯球队的队长，并在莱德杯中表现出色。
TEACHING “PRO” FILE – STEVE WILLIAMS
Not to be confused with Steve Williams who used to caddy for Tiger Woods, USGTF professional and examiner Steve Williams has been immersed in golf for most of his life. He attended Fresno State where he won numerous college tournaments and earned conference player-of-the-year honors. Unfortunately, Williams developed back issues and was forced into retiring from playing golf from 1978 to 1992. Upon returning to playing, he competed in the Cypresswood Open in Texas, where he finished as runner-up out of 125 professionals. He also has two runner-up finishes in the United States Golf Teachers Cup.
不要与曾经为老虎伍兹当球童的史蒂夫•威廉姆斯混淆，USGTF 职业教练和考官史蒂夫•威廉姆斯大部分时间都沉浸在高尔夫之中。 他毕业于弗雷斯诺州立大学，在那里他赢得了许多大学比赛并获得了年度最佳球员荣誉。不幸的是，在那之后威廉姆斯因为背部出现问题，于 1978 年至 1992 年期间被迫离开高尔夫运动。复出后，他参加了德克萨斯州赛普拉斯伍德公开赛，并在与 125 名职业球员的比拼中赢得亚军。 他还在美国高尔夫教练杯中获得过两次亚军。
Williams is also one of Texas’ most sought-after teaching professionals, having coached several playing professionals, among them PGA Tour winner J.L. Lewis. Recently, Williams has written a book titled Golf…The Great Revealer! According to Williams, “In this book, I share many of the thoughts and actions that touring pros know are vital to their success, but which few amateurs understand. Any golfer who wishes to play at or near their potential simply must do the same things or they will reach a plateau and go no further.” The book may be found on Amazon.
威廉姆斯也是德克萨斯州最受欢迎的教练之一，曾执教过几位职业球员，其中包括美巡赛冠军 J.L. 刘易斯。 最近，威廉姆斯写了一本书，名为《高尔夫……伟大的启示者！》 威廉姆斯的说道，“在这本书中，我分享了巡回赛职业选手知道对他们的成功至关重要的许多想法和行动，但很少有业余爱好者能理解。任何希望发挥或接近其潜力的高尔夫球手都必须做同样的事情 否则他们很难成功问鼎，且无法进步。” 这本书可以在亚马逊商城上找到。
Williams is the owner of the Texas Golf Academy in Humble, Texas, where he continues to teach the game that has been so instrumental in his career and life.
威廉姆斯是德克萨斯州 Humble 的德克萨斯高尔夫学院的老板，他在那里继续他的职业生涯和教学生活。
STUDENT SPOTLIGHT – EUNICE HAHM
By The Fairfax Golf Academy Staff
Fairfax Golf Academy for young golfers aged 7 to 14 began in the Washington DC metropolitan area in 2015. Five gifted and talented golfers have been selected for scholarships, among them Eunice Hahm. At our tryout, all coaches were surprised by her athleticism and hand eye coordination. They were far beyond her age group.
面向 7 至 14 岁年轻高尔夫球手的费尔法克斯高尔夫学院于 2015 年在华盛顿特区市区开办。五名才华横溢的高尔夫球手获得了奖学金，其中包括尤尼斯•哈姆。在我们的选拔赛中，所有教练都对她的运动和手眼协调能力感到惊讶，其能力远超出了她的年龄组。
Eunice was selected for our elite program and started training immediately. We have built a program for those selected students that include fitness, mental training and strategy. She became well known as she competed in local junior tournaments after just two years of golf experience. Her swing, tournament preparation and her short game were developed by coach Ty Park, a USGTF Master Golf Teaching Professional. Park’s 25 years of teaching experience and teaching skills were a catalyst to boost her growth in her game. She has won five local tournaments and had eight consecutive top-5 finishes in 2018 and 2019. Her goal is to play golf at the college level and beyond, and to help others with their skills. She is diverse in her skills, as she is a robotics instructor at the county community center, a math tutor at her church, and an assistant golf coach for The First Tee and the Fairfax Golf Academy. She is now a sophomore and in her second year on the West Springfield High School varsity golf team.
尤妮丝 被选中参加我们的精英计划并开始培训。我们为那些选定的学生建立了一个计划，包括健身、心理训练和策略。仅仅两年后，她就参加了当地的青少年锦标赛，因此闻名。她的挥杆、短杆以及赛前的准备都是由 USGTF 大师级高尔夫教学教练 Ty Park 负责的。 Park 拥有25 年的教学经验，帮助她在比赛中快速成长。她在 2018 年和 2019 年赢得了 5 次本地锦标赛冠军，并连续 8 次获得前 5 名。她的目标是在大学及打更高级别的高尔夫赛事，并在以后也帮助别人提高技能。她一号木技术最好，稳定的就像机器人一样、就像教堂里的数学导师，现在她成为一名教初学者的费尔法克斯高尔夫学院的助理教练。目前，她是一名大二学生，加入了西斯普林菲尔德高中大学高尔夫球队。

EDITORIAL – GOLF INJURIES AND REHABILITATION
By: USGTF Technical Committee
Injuries are a part of golf, just like in any other sport. It seems, though, that more top professionals are being sidelined with injuries, perhaps none more so than Tiger Woods. Jason Day also has had numerous ailments that have kept him from competing.
Among the older crowd, Fred Couples has fought a balky back for his entire career, and Bill Glasson had numerous surgeries in his playing heyday. But these seem to be the exception rather than the rule. It may just be that with today’s ever-present media, golf injuries in the professional ranks are more noted than they were in the past.
Chris Finn, owner of Par4Success, notes that in golf, pain that can be felt in one part of the body is often the result of a true injury in another part of the body. He says that is important for golfers to not only be flexible, but strong enough to handle the clubhead speeds that they are generating. So, the first order of defense in preventing injuries is to properly train the body. Although many people do not have access to personal trainers for golf, or the cost may be prohibitive, there are many good resources online, including YouTube, that have accurate and up-to-date information. Another line of defense in preventing injuries is to have proper swing mechanics. Those who tend to have a reverse pivot or reverse tilt golf swing often create torques on the back greater than what the back was meant to handle.
Par4Success（一家高尔夫伤痛康复服务公司） 的老板 Chris Finn 指出，在打高尔夫球时，身体某一部位的疼痛通常是身体另一部分受伤的结果。他说，对于高尔夫球手来说，重要的是不仅要灵活，而且要足够强壮以应对他们的杆头速度。因此，预防受伤的第一步是适当地训练身体。尽管许多人无法获得高尔夫私人教练的帮助，或者费用过于昂贵，但在网上有许多很好的免费资源，包括 YouTube，它们提供准确和最新的信息。防止受伤的另一道防线是拥有适当的挥杆体系。那些倾向于拥有标准的反向C挥杆动作的人，通常挥杆时背部会产生自己难以控制的扭力。
