I hope you're enjoying the sunshine and a summer full of golf. Our summer sale is in full swing with some great deals for you all to grab and we also have a number of events running this month for you to attend and hopefully finish strong towards the back end of the season.
This week I also wanted to tell you about the coach getting coached! You know sometimes as coaches we forget what it is like to be a beginner or a student taking a lesson and that is why I traveled an hour to go and spend a morning with Short Game coach James Ridyard. Why? Well two reasons:
- To improve my woeful short game, not playing has its pitfalls, so spending some "me" time on my game makes a change.
- To get some great information and insight into wedge play and short game from a coach that has worked globally with national squads and presented to the PGA of America.
Needless to say, the information will probably have more of an impact in my lessons rather than my own game quicker, but I am going to work hard to improve that area.
More Student Success...
The AFG students just keeping improving this summer and I am loving the fact that a lot of my students have the passion and work ethic to improve their golf. This week has seen the following successes:
Ollie Rust - Another win for young Ollie, winning the Gog Magog Junior Open.
Ed Dimambro - Ed has finally reached his long term goal of getting to scratch after a great round at Newmarket in a Medal.
David English - David has moved his handicap down to 18.6 reducing it by three shots this year, only 0.6 to go to hit his target.
Austin Wang - Winning the his first ever Stableford Junior Open at Ely by an amazing 17 points.
