Many kids were at the pool today, but some lucky ones were on the links learning from some of the best. School's out for Tri-State students, but some learned how to drive, put, and even get themselves out of the rough.

30 kids from the Boys and Girls Club and YMCA took part in the Youth Golf Clinic. They got pointers from several Web.com Tour pros and local high school golfers. Golfers from the Evansville Junior Golf Association also participated in the clinic. The pros showed the kids the right way to drive and worked with them on their swing.   

"I think it's really awesome," said Jalen Cook, "because I can learn how to golf. And I can see pros golf too, and I think it's really cool."

It wasn't all business. The children got some pictures taken with the pros and got some autographs.
