A new year… here we go! So let’s get the golf season off to a great start.
My first trip was off to Orlando USA. A fun trip where I got to (luckily) get to see an LPGA golf event at Lake Nona . It was the Tournament of Champions. For me it was great to watch the top LPGA players do their stuff. I have in the past watched the LPGA and LET players at The Ladies Open in the UK and the Evian tournament in France. It was such fun I have to say. I then was able to go to the PGA Golf Show in Orlando. This is my 4th visit and it really does not disappoint! It was great to see all the new equipment for the 2023 season. As well as meeting up with old friends and making new ones! I was able to touch base with all the guys from my equipment supplier Mizuno! Alex Thorn the UK manger and then Lauren Smith who is the manger of the Ladies tour USA and then a lovely guy called Brett Ramsay who is one of their reps! So very knowledgeable on the complete range of Mizuno. So, I had fun. The whole show was fab, I was like a kid in a sweet shop!! Lol.
Then it was back home to get back to the lesson tee and help all my students get ready for the oncoming season. From one-to-one coaching to my Ladies groups, I am soo proud of all their hard work.
My first golf school was at the lovely Islantilla Golf Resort in Spain. We were blessed with fine weather as the group worked hard throughout the week. We worked on all the aspects of the game, and then put their new skills into action on the golf course. It is always fun for me to watch the group experiment with new ideas. I gave the group drills to work on as well as practice games to work on when they get home.
The last day competition was won by Lynne R with 35 point and the secret partners were Lynne C and Ceri with 53 points. Well done guys it was a complete pleasure to help you all on your way to better golf this season.
My 2nd golf school was at the lovely Isla Canela just over the Portuguese border into Spain. We were blessed with lovely weather to help the school practice hard and to enjoy the two courses here. Both very different, one with plenty of trees and water and the other a links like course, a tad more open.
As in all my golf schools we covered what we need to get the students ready for the golf season a head. It was great to give them all a plan to work on going forward, both with long and short game. With drills to back up the practice always helps with reminding people WHAT they need to work on. The important part of my schools are on course tuition sessions and it was good to see the group “trying out “ the new things they had learned.
Our last day competition in a strong breeze and was won by Robyn on count back from Jim with 30 points, and the secret partner were Sue and Claire with 49 points. It was a great week with fab people who were willing to practice and work hard on their games. A big thank you one and all for your hard work and fun.
