Teaching and Coaching Conference Names First Two Keynotes

The PGA of Canada’s inaugural Teaching and Coaching Conference has landed its first two keynote speakers.
 
Cameron McCormick, coach of three-time major winner Jordan Spieth, and world-recognized physical education adviser Richard Bailey headline the conference, which takes Nov. 28-29 in Mississauga.
 
“I can’t think of a better way to launch our inaugural National Teaching and Coaching Conference than with Cameron McCormick and Richard Bailey,” said the PGA of Canada’s technical director Glenn Cundari. “Not only are they world leaders in their fields, but they are excellent speakers who will make their respective sessions informative and fun.”
 
The Teaching and Coaching Conference—which is part of Tee Talks Live, a multi-day professional development conference for PGA of Canada Members and Candidates for Membership focused on the business and management of golf—will feature a number of interactive workshops, a broad spectrum of speakers and more.
 
PGA of Canada Members and Candidates can register for both—or either one of the two—conferences now at a deeply discounted rate.
