Two Colorado-based golf instructors were recently named among the top 50 LPGA teachers worldwide by the LPGA Teaching and Club Professionals membership, presented in partnership with Women’s Golf Journal.

Elena King of Centennial and Patti Marquis of Evergreen were among those selected for the honor out of more than 1,700 LPGA-certified professionals around the world. This is the first awarding of what is expected to be annual honors.

King teaches out of CGA-owned and operated CommonGround Golf Course in Aurora as well as Meridian Golf Club. Marquis is an instructor who works out of Fossil Trace Golf Club in Golden in the summer and Primm (Nev.) Golf Club in the fall and winter.

An independent golf industry selection committee picked this year’s LPGA teacher award winners after reviewing eligible applications.

“The LPGA is excited to partner with Women’s Golf Journal on this annual recognition,” LPGA chief teaching officer, Nancy Henderson, said in a press release. “More than 70 percent of our members teach the game of golf for a living and they are dedicated to the advancement of golf through teaching golfers of all ages and abilities to enjoy the game of golf.”
