JOHN DAY – Ron Lundbom wrapped up a successful six-day junior golf camp for youth last week at the John Day Golf Club.
This year he had 14 participants learning golfing basics.
“I think the kids did better than any group we’ve ever had,” said Lundbom, who is also the Grant Union High School golf coach.
He had assistance again this year from Patch Freeman of Long Creek.
Two players from Lundbom’s 2014-15 golf team, Nathan Gehley and Duane Stokes, also helped the young golfers.
The lessons culminated in a golf scramble with the group dividing into two teams for the tournament July 2, and the youth cooled off with some ice cream cake after the event.
The winning team members each received a Dairy Queen gift card.
Lundbom was pleased with the progress of his golfing students.
“They definitely showed improvements in hitting the ball, and had good attitudes,” he said.
