Local Teens Tote for Top Golfers
When you reach the level of play required for the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship, one small mistake can mean the difference between victory and defeat. A good caddie who knows the course well can make all the difference. So when the best amateur players from across the country play the course this summer in the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship at Laurel Hill Golf Club, they may benefit from the caddie advice of four Fairfax County teens with impressive high school golf records of their own.

For Strength and Stability, Try TRX Suspension Training
You don’t have to be an athlete to train like a pro. People at all fitness levels can benefit from TRX Suspension Training classes offered at Fairfax County RECenters. The workout system is made up of three adjustable nylon straps attached to a metal ring. It leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises to develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. You control the level of personal challenge because you can adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.
