    Remember, all activities must be completed using this electronic file, then printed out in black and white and submitted. This is a "Read-Only" file and must be saved as a separate document before you begin. See the 'Read Me' file for "Save As" instructions.

    Refer to the following guidelines when completing all activities.

    • Use complete sentences to answer all activity questions

    • Eliminate all spelling, grammatical, and typographical errors

    • Include all appropriate back up materials to substantiate your work

    • Make sure all required activities are included in your Work Experience Kit

    • Make sure your inventory checklist and sign off sheet are included in your Kit

    Ground Rules

    Here are the key ground rules to follow when you do any work experience activity that requires making repairs:

     • Remember, the most important rule is ―safety first.‖

     • Always wear gloves and eye protection.

     • Never stand in front of a club head when applying heat to the hosel.

     • Take your time.

    Directions

    The activities for Lessons 2 through 11 require you to take photographs of all the club repair procedures you perform in order to create your own Club Repair in Pictures book. You will need to use a camera that produces color or black and white prints. For an example of what the photographs you take should look like, refer to the photographs shown on page 132 in Golf Club Design, Fitting, Alteration & Repair.

    Please follow the directions below when preparing your Club Repair in Pictures book. 1. Develop a title page for each repair task you perform. Include the specific information requested for an activity on the title page. An example of a title page appears on the following page of this guide.

    2. Take a photograph of each step of the repair procedure you perform. Put a caption by each step, and briefly describe what is taking place in the photograph. Be sure to display the photographs in the order in which you performed the procedure..

    3. Glue the photographs to regular paper, mount in a photo album, or place them in plastic 3 x 5 or 4 x 6 inch print pages. Page 13 of this guide contains an example of what a page in your Club Repair in Pictures book should look like.
