"Possibly in upstate New York or New England, certainly in Florida, maybe in California or the Southwest. "The idea is to offer golf instruction to the beginners, the kids wim a 36 handicap, all 'the way to the scratch golfer," he said. "We want to leach golf rules, etiquette as well as the playing, of the game, the mechanical! side.

"On the playing of the game, we'll teach the Palmer Method, target golf.If a boy can hit an iron 180 yards, we want to teach him to hit it 170 yards and control it. It's the same thing I've Arnie Palmer talked about in books. Any professional will do it differently, will teach differently. Jack Nicklaus would teach it different from me in some phases of the game. In some phases we might be pretty close. But I want to teach complete golf."
