JTG Training System
Jr Team Golf has adapted a belt system for golf developed by Kano Jigoro, the Japanese founder of Judo. The belts represent the way leading to the highest and most efficient use of both physical and mental energy.
JTG Players will compete at monthly JTG Skills Sessions. To earn their belt signified by a colored pin for their JTG Cap, they must demonstrate a predetermined set of golf skills and knowledge of the game including its rules and proper etiquette.
Here is the significance of each color:
(Signified by the White JTG Golf Cap):
The lack of color signifies purity and innocence. The novice has no knowledge of golf.
The color of the rising sun. Seeds in the ground begin to germinate and grow. Basic golf techniques begin to be learned.
The color of growing things that all can see. Power begins to develop.
The color of the sky which growing things reach for. Physical and mental power starts to stabilize.
The color of the ground where growing things are rooted firmly. Stability of physical and mental power is apparent.
The color of blood, the essential life force. Maturity, honor and respect are exhibited as character begins to perfect.Bl
The combination of all color. The final stage where technique is mastered within the humble and serene beauty of the plant.
