He’s also the Program Coordinator for the New Mexico State University’s PGA Golf Management Program, responsible for Player and Instructor Development. In addition to that, he is the Founder and Executive Director of the Las Cruces Jr. Golf Assoc dedicated to serving the community, and introducing children to golf. On this episode of Golf Smarter, Henry talks about growing up in a state not known for golf, the NMSU Golf Management Program, and getting your child interested in playing golf. And if that’s not enough of a resume, he is also the host of the Straight Shooter podcast.
