PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL--(Marketwire - April 29, 2010) -  Join the millions of people who have improved their golf game the last 12 years by participating in PGA Free Lesson Month held at facilities nationwide throughout May. New for 2010, PGA Free Lesson Month has added free family golf clinics, giving families the opportunity to learn and participate in the game of golf together.

"We have added free Family Golf Clinics during PGA Free Lesson Month this year, giving families who are looking for new things to do an opportunity to do something different and have an unforgettable experience," said PGA of America President Jim Remy. "Whether as an individual or with friends or family, PGA Free Lesson Month offers the perfect excuse to get outside, learn new skills and get a little exercise, all while enjoying the game of golf."

PGA Free Lesson Month is designed to reach new golfers and help existing golfers improve their game with free, 10-minute golf lessons conducted by participating PGA and LPGA Professionals. PGA Free Lesson Month gives individuals and families an opportunity to improve their game, making golf more fun and enjoyable for everyone.

"The number of free lessons that have been given over the past 12 years is an incredible accomplishment and the Family Golf Clinics that have been added this year are a fantastic, new component to the program," said Jerry Tarde, chairman and editorial director of Golf Digest Publications. "We are extremely proud to be associated with PGA Free Lesson Month and thank The PGA of America and the thousands of PGA and LPGA Professionals who continue to dedicate their time to make this such a successful initiative."
