Golphin Partners with South Central Section PGA

(AYRSHIRE, Scotland) – Golphin Ltd. (, an award-winning Scottish-based company which designs and manufactures specialized golf equipment for children, announces its Bronze Partnership with the South Central Section PGA. Golphin equipment will be used for junior golf instruction within the Section.

“We are delighted to partner with the South Central Section PGA,” said Calum McPherson, founder and managing director of Golphin, “as our goal is to inspire children towards a lifetime of playing golf. Kids need to have fun when playing any game, and making golf enjoyable with a feeling of success from the very beginning is essential.

“Availing PGA professionals of our coaching packs is making that happen. Attracting children and sustaining their interest is a huge challenge, and Golphin’s easy-to-swing clubs are beginning to break down those barriers.”

Golphin is being recognized as the leading innovator in the junior golf space. The recent Golf Digest award as 2016 Best Beginners Junior Clubs adds to Golphin’s other successes, including the 2015 HSBC/IMG Global Innovation Award and the Scottish Sporting Chance Best New Product Award.

The South Central Section PGA, which includes the entire state of Arkansas and a part of Kansas, as well as Oklahoma, was formed in 1959. It previously had included portions of six states. The South Central Section PGA is one of 41 geographic Sections that make up the PGA of America. Approximately 382 Members and 74 Apprentices strive to promote the enjoyment and growth of the game of golf in the South Central region.

Brian Davis, PGA, executive director of the South Central PGA Section, said, “The South Central PGA is excited to work with Golphin and provide these state-of-the-art lightweight clubs to children throughout our growth-of-the-game programming. We are especially excited to start using these clubs with our local YMCAs as they graduate kids onto the golf course for the first time.

“We believe by providing youngsters with Golphin clubs, we will offer them a positive first experience on the golf course that will lead to a lifetime of playing golf.”

Golphin also has partnered with the Mid Atlantic Section PGA, LPGA T&CP, TPI and IMG, and is the exclusive partner to The R&A for The Open Championship PGA Swingzone coaching events.

Very interesting reviews. I particularly liked the comments of the sounds made with the different drivers. Hate those “tinny” drivers.

My niece is 14 years old and she wants to play golf now. I will also give my niece the best driver for beginners specifically designed for kids. This post is helpful to make the selection now. Thanks.
