DENVER — Maggie Hartman grew up a stone's throw from City Park here in Denver. Or, in Maggie's case, I should say she grew up "a lofted pitching wedge" away from the park.

As a PGA professional and coach at Experience Golf, Maggie has seen a stark decline in her chances to meet with clients since the stay-at-home order was put into place - but that isn't stopping her from trying to keep the golf community active, enthusiastic, and positive.

She took to Instagram (@golf_coachmaggie) to show off some of her favorite trick shots and encourage her followers to give them a try.

"I was just thinking what could I do that's crazy but also a good role model," says Hartman. "Hopefully, it inspires people to stay busy and try to do something fun when we're in this time."
