BOISE, Idaho — Renzi Lee of Billings has been named the recipient of the 2017 Youth Player Development Award in the Rocky Mountain Section PGA.
The Youth Player Development Award bestows special recognition upon a PGA professional who has displayed extraordinary and exemplary contribution and achievement in this field. As the PGA head pro at Lake Hills Golf Club, Lee has developed and participated in programs helping the advancement and development of junior players.
Lee uses what he calls a Game Board and a Practice Sheet, which encourages kids in his junior program to practice and bring parents along to play. Lee provides different tasks for junior golfers to perform to get squares checked off the Game Board and earn prizes.
The 2017 Youth Player Development Award marks the first time Lee has earned a section honor. He will be presented with the 2017 RMSPGA Youth Player Development Award in May at the Section Annual Meeting and Awards Presentation.
