The material might be the same, but there will be more than one student, or in this case golf professional, among the audience.
Roy Khoury, the golf fitness instructor with a Newport Beach facility I wrote about three months ago, is back in the news and this time his reach is greater. The 29-year-old Irvine resident has partnered with the Southern California PGA to instruct professionals on the importance of body movements and how they relate to the golf swing. The hope is that professionals will take what they learn and pass it on to their students.
Khoury, a Cal State Fullerton graduate who studied kinesiology, and others are still working out the details, but he envisions classes of 10 to 15 students. The students will come to the Newport Beach facility, O.C. Fitness Solutions, and learn the importance fitness plays in golf.
His foray into this new chapter will be on display Nov. 1 at Friendly Hills Country Club in Whittier for the SCPGA Pro-Team Championship. Khoury said in an e-mail that classes won't begin until 2011.
