Birdie Basics to exhibit at 2020 PGA Merchandise Show

Program features story-driven golf discovery for children ages 3-6

New York, NY – Birdie Basics announced today plans to exhibit at the 67th PGA Merchandise Show, Jan. 21-24, 2020, in Orlando, Fla.

According to founder Kate Tempesta, “As an early childhood educator and LPGA T&CP, I know children learn best through play and stories. Birdie Basics emerged as a way to train a team of coaches working with me. What I learned was that anyone can coach through fun stories, given the right tools. I am super excited to exhibit at the show and share this program with golf professionals wanting to reach this demographic. There is nothing better than empowering children while also giving them a very positive first experience with this wonderful game, and by extension growing the game.”

From Wednesday, Jan. 22 to Friday, Jan. 24, come learn about Birdie Basics at Booth 2293 on the show floor within the equipment hall at the Orange County Convention Center.
