TOWSON, Md. - Over the next 8 weeks, Tiger fans and golf enthusiasts will have the opportunity to take virtual "lessons" from the pros — Jeff Castle, Men's Golf Assistant Coach and Kate Stepanek, Women's Golf Head Coach – with "Tiger Tips".

Just some of the topics that will be discussed include: putting, getting out of bunkers, different club grips and how to properly tee up your ball.

As one of the best golfers in Towson's history, Castle was named the Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Year twice. He has remained extremely competitive since graduating in 2007.

In 2008, Castle finished second in the Maryland Open. He made seven of 10 cuts on the Tar Heel Tour that year, including four finishes in the top 12. In 2009, he finished fifth in earnings on the Gateway Tour Winter Series. Castle finished second in two events while making five of seven cuts. He also competed in four Tar Heel Tour events and made the cut in three of those four events. Castle advanced to the second stage of Tour Qualifying School that year.

Stepanek was a two-time All-ACC golfer and four-year letter winner at the University of Maryland. The first female golfer at Maryland to turn pro, she competed on the Duramed FUTURES Tour. After qualifying school she earned exempt status and played in 14 events.

The series of tips begin just in time to remind fans that positions are still available for the June 29th, Towson Hall of Fame Black & Gold Invitational, taking place at Towson Golf & Country Club. To learn more/register CLICK HERE.
