KELLY COLEMAN ON COACH JEFFRIES: “She would always comment on how I was playing, even though I wasn’t one of her team’s players (in 2011). … She gave support. She’d say congratulations if I won the match. She cared about my success in golf, which was really awesome.”
From coach Jeffries: “The kids at this level, they know what clubs to choose. My experience with this is the mental side. Golf is very much a mental game. That’s where I come into play. They know to practice their long and short games. I’m there to help them through it.”
