CEDAR HILL, Texas–Northwood Texas Men's & Women's Head Golf Coach Ben Belfield was recently awarded the title of Certified Putting Instructor. Coach Belfield earned his certification by taking courses through the PGA of America & Frankly Golf Putting.
"I always tell and ask my players to develop and never stop learning, always trying to gain more knowledge. That starts with me,” said Coach Belfield. “I am always trying to find new ways to develop myself and therefore be able to pass on knowledge and expertise to my players. With the courses I have been taking and the knowledge I have been able to acquire, I believe that my team will continue to develop as putters and get the ball in the hole quicker”, Coach Belfield added.
“Ben is the consummate professional,” noted Northwood Athletics Director Jack Allday. “He is serious about golf and his golfers, and that shows up in numerous ways. This putting certification is just one of many examples of his commitment to improve not just his team, but himself.”
