Edward Williams School, Mount Vernon Plays Golf

BYSC introduces recreational sports to young players that never imagined would be taught there before. Below is a write up of such an experience by one of our instructors, Ethan Bunzel, a junior from Scarsdale High School who plays on the varsity golf team.

“The game of golf has given me so many opportunities and has opened me up to so many experiences which has played such an important role in my life.  Therefore, when the opportunity came up to teach some kids that have not had the same opportunities and experiences I have had, I jumped on it right away.  For the past few weeks, my friend Jacob Eisenstein, my brother Max, and I have been teaching golf to 3rd and 4th graders from the Edward Williams School.  While most of the kids have never even seen a golf club, it has been amazing to see how excited they are to learn and how well they are able to process what we teach them.  It seems as if they are as focused to hit a golf ball as they are to learn their multiplication tables.  Golf is not always the most popular or exciting sport for young children to pick up. But by our showing them that golf is actually a very enjoyable sport, they will hopefully be eager to learn more about the sport and improve on the fundamental skills we have taught them.  If we did not establish this program, most of these kids would have never felt the joy of hitting a golf ball.  This program at the Edward Williams School was a great start, and I hope to continue to bring golf to areas where golf has never been experienced before.”    Ethan Bunzel-
