    Junior golf is fabulous and fun to watch. Their swings are so fluid and flexible and they play with such enthusiasm and gusto. When a junior golfer hits a great shot, you can see the result all over her or his face and in the body English.  
    On April 9-10, the American Junior Golf Association came to St. James to play a pre-season event on the Founders Course. I was there for the Sunday round, hobnobbing with the kids and their parents, observing the hard work performed by a 50-member cadre of volunteers.
