COVINA, CA--(Marketwire - December 20, 2007) - High school golfers looking for a college to suit their golfing and academic needs received tips and advice at the "Road to College Golf" seminar on Dec. 8. Sponsored by Body Balance for Performance-Covina (, this seminar featured speakers like Ted Gleason, president and CEO of Road to College Golf. Parents and golf coaches also attended with their students.

Road to College Golf is a service which helps junior golfers and their parents select a college that matches their golf and academic abilities. RTCG also mentors and coaches junior golfers to develop life and golf skill sets that meet their college golf goals.

"It can be difficult to choose a college that meets all your needs when you're a high school golfer," said Larry Carter, P.T. and owner of Body Balance for Performance-Covina. "We want to help local high school golfers succeed, and Road to College Golf is an excellent way to do that."

Speaker Ted Gleason has been head golf coach at both the University of Southern California and Southern Methodist University, and has seven years of coaching experience at the Division I level. This includes six trips to the NCAA Finals, either with his team or as an individual. Gleason also has five years' experience as a professional golfer and four years of college golf at UCLA.

Carter and Claudette Salvator, the clinical coordinator for Body Balance for Performance-Covina, also introduced the highest level of golf fitness instruction available through The Body Balance program. Their golf technology and fitness techniques have been used by PGA touring pros to train.

For high school golfers, the golf fitness training that Body Balance offers can be especially beneficial. High school golfers may be more limber, but they may also lack core strength and stability.

"At Body Balance, we focus on helping golfers analyze weaknesses in their body that are affecting their golf game, no matter what age they are," Carter said. "Since high school golfers tend to lack core strength and stability, we can help them with specific fitness training that will fortify those areas and better their golf game."
