New concept for teaching beginning golfers coming through Myrtle Beach

Brian Selfridge of Marlton, N.J., will be displaying his STEP into Golf junior golf concept during a Myrtle Beach Junior Golf Foundation Clinic conducted by Russ Brown and other teaching pros at the Golf School of Myrtle Beach at River Oaks Golf Club at 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

The cost of the one-hour clinic is $10 for juniors not already registered.

The Slotted Driver is the concept’s key product. It’s a cavity-back driver made for juniors to assist with aiming and training and can also be used for everyday play. Selfridge says it conforms to USGA regulations.

The cavity back is designed to allow a person behind the learning student to place his foot in the carved out wedge to easily aim the driver and give the student the proper setup.

Selfridge has two sons, including one who is autistic, and found his creation to be helpful in introducing them both to the game. He used to line his autistic son up to the ball by standing on the top of the driver head to keep it in place while he adjusted his son's stance.

"One day I thought, 'There should be a place for my foot in that driver head," Selfridge said. "I started to realize I had created a system that would work for players whether they were handicapped or not."

Selfridge said the USGA has also approved a caddie placing his foot in the driver head for alignment before the player hits the ball.

Selfridge will be filming at the clinics and hopes to improve the quality of the videos currently on YouTube that display the use of the equipment and system. Another clinic Saturday afternoon is being discussed. Visit SlottedDriver.com for more information on the product.
