Tom Sager was passionate about golf. He believed it was a good way to learn how to deal with frustration, to gain discipline, and to build relationships. This summer, eight boys and girls from the Lawrence and Methuen YMCAs will get the chance to learn those skills while participating in the Tom Sager Golf Academy. This joint venture of the Merrimack Valley YMCA, Renaissance Golf Club, and the Sager Family Trust was started in 2011 in memory of Sager, an avid golfer who passed away in 2009. His wife, Barbara Sager says she hopes the experience will have a positive, lifelong effect on the kids.
