Kids in central Georgia with dreams of making it to the PGA tour have a shot to learn from the pros next week.

Bowden Golf Course in Macon is bringing in a few PGA professionals like Ray Cutwright and Keith Brady  for a four-day clinic.

Kids will learn all of the essentials from putting to chipping and driving.

"We want to inspire future generations to continue playing the game of golf," says Director Nathan Caffarelli.

For young Macon golfer Khyle Bentley, playing the game also teaches important life lessons.

"Focus, patience, but mostly patience, because it's hard to keep calm on this golf course, and you just have to fight through it," he says.

"It's a mental game. You've got to keep your attitude straight. You've got to get your mind in the right place," says Bentley's golf partner Joshua Jones.

Bowden scheduled adult sessions for this week, but had to cancel after no one signed up. Caffarelli says he's now focused on recruiting young golfers to next week's clinics and to the sport.

The kids clinics starts Monday and ends Thursday. The cost is $75.

Children ages six through nine will start playing at 9 a.m. and finish at 10:30 a.m.

From 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., golfers ages 10 through 13 will get to play.

Caffarelli says anyone interested in signing up can call the pro shop or stop by to register.
