Keys to a Champion Mindset with Debbie O’Connell
What if you could play golf free from negative thoughts, emotions and beliefs? How would a round of golf or a day in your life be if you didn’t worry about what other people think, or stress over not being good enough, or feeling tense about making a mistake? Imagine how you will feel at the end of every round of golf if you absolutely stayed in a positive mindset. If that is a goal you strive for we are pleased to share “Keys to a Champion Mindset” from LPGA Professional Debbie O’Connell with you.
This will be the last offering of Debbie’s outstanding program. Live for 90 minutes each day starting Saturday, October 23 to Wednesday, October 27, the program will help you to Change Your Mindset and Change Your Game!

REGISTER FOR YOUR HANDICAP
If you haven't already done so, why not register to obtain a handicap? A handicap is one way to keep track of your progress, and there might be an event you want to play in that requires a handicap.
Our LPGA Amateurs Northern New Jersey Chapter offers two options for obtaining a handicap: GolfNet or GHIN (Golf Handicap Information Network).
GolfNet is included with your LPGA Amateur membership. GolfNet is good for all LPGA Amateurs events, but you might need GHIN for state tournaments. If you are an active member of the Northern NJ Chapter of the LPGA Amateurs and want to obtain a handicap through GolfNet, contact Handicap Chair Sue Stager. She will activate your account and provide you with the info you need to begin posting your scores.
GHIN is a service offered by the USGA to regional golf associations, such as the New Jersey State Golf Association (NJSGA). Members of the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the LPGA Amateurs can obtain or renew GHIN through our chapter. Having GHIN will register you with the NJSGA, making you eligible to participate in NJSGA tournaments and events.* The cost for this service is $31. To obtain, renew or transfer a GHIN account, REGISTER HERE.
For additional information regarding GHIN check out the Handicap page on our website.
You must be an ACTIVE MEMBER of the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the LPGA Amateurs to register for League Play and GHIN. Please click here and log into the Member Clubhouse to renew your membership for 2021.

A DAY OF GOLF TO CELEBRATE MARILY "MARIE" SARMIENTO
Thank you to everyone who participated in the charity scramble tournament at Lake Isle Country Club on August 30, to honor the life of our friend and fellow golfer, Marily "Marie" Sarmiento. We know Marie was looking down on all of us, sending us a day full of smiles and sunshine.
Many thanks to all those who assisted Andria in making this outing a wonderful event. Proceeds from the tournament will be donated to The First Tee in Marie's memory.
We miss you Marie!
