Palm City Polo Club owner Joey Casey hosted Phillips this month at his

new state-of-the-art facility in Boynton Beach, just outside Wellington.

The recently constructed hitting cage, regulation-size polo field and highly

experienced staff made the club the perfect place for the young player to

prepare for the prestigious, highly competitive international tournament.

hitting cage, making adjustments to her form and mallet technique before she

mounted. A United States Polo Association A-rated umpire, Harris has officiated

at major tournaments and has coached top polo players.


“Mike made strategic changes to my swing that made a huge difference,” Phillips said.

“He’s a great instructor, and after working with him for half an hour I was already hitting

the ball a lot better.”
