National NCAA Division II player of the year Andrew Beckler and his high school coach, Jared Goehring of Washburn Rural, will host a series of golf clinics at Pure Golf Topeka for young players.
Clinics for boys and girls 12 and under will begin on Thursday, June 17, with clinics also set for June 24 and July 8, running from 6 to 7:15 p.m. each night.
All three clinics will be held at Pure Golf Topeka, located at 7523 SW 21st Street, and sponsored by Pure Golf Topeka and Topeka Junior Golf.
The cost for attending a clinic is $40 or $100 to participate in all three clinics.
A pair of clinics for boys and girls aged 13 and over will follow on July 15 and 22 from 6 to 7:15 p.m. at Pure Golf Topeka.
The clinics will focus on the fundamentals of golf, including short game, full swing, vocabulary and rules/etiquette of the game.
Beckler, who was recently named the winner of the Jack Nicklaus Award as the NCAA Division II player of the year, won Class 6A team and individual state championships under Goehring at Washburn Rural.
Goehring, who also runs the Topeka Junior Golf program, has coached Rural to a total of five state team championships and has coached individual boys and girls champs.
