Results From JOG...

Dean and Ollie played in the John O'Gaunt Pro-Am on Monday. It is that time of year where you wll start to see results and competitions from the team as they enter different events. As always it is great to see anyone representing Girton Golf Club. After my round last week, it is a stark reminder that golf is tough, and without practice and hard work, it doesn't matter how good you were, it is difficult to keep up the standards.

Student Success Stories

Ella misses out in the Semi-finalsElla Mason qualified sixth in the Ladies County Championships at Ramsey last Friday. This position meant she played another AFG Student Morgan Tritton in the first round of the knockout. After a good match Ella won moving on to play Past County Captain Sarah Grennall, winning 4&3. On Sunday, in the Semi's Ella faced the defending Champion Tabitha Brain and pushed hard losing on the 16th. A great result for such a young student and a handicap reduction taking her to seven and getting ready for a big summer ahead.

Josh and Josh represent Cambridgeshire - AFG students Josh Hulyer and Josh Austin were paired together representing Cambridgeshire in their away match. In their foursomes the guys played well and fought against a strong pair losing out 4&3. In the afternoon Josh Austin was under par to win his match while Josh Hulyer fought a good golfer pushing him all the way but losing on the last. It is great to sit and wait for the texts and messages about how students have done on a Sunday. Some great golf and the guys will learn so much ready for a strong summer.

Jack Kenyon wins Shearline with a magical 65 - Probably the one student that practices the most on a Saturday... Jack does love his practice and his practice gadgets and last weekend he got his just rewards for the effort and hard work over the winter. In the second round of the Shearline, after making the cut, Jack blew the field away with a magical 65 even with a bogey on 16. These great success stories keep on coming and it is great to see students flourish after some really hard work this winter.

Note to golfers - I think there is an important point to make here... the players that I see succeeding and pushing right now are those that have a commitment to practice and a plan. The great thing with so many of the students I am lucky enough to work with is that during the summer I don't need to see them week in week out. We have done our hard work and now I am on the end of the phone, a text, or even a Skype chat. Coaching is so much more than the hour we spend together. It is a process, a journey and if more golfers saw it as that rather than 60 minutes "Fix Me" then I am sure they would see similar results. The culture of golf lessons and perception from golfers is that the Golf Pro will "change everything". Not so! If you want to start a discussion about how "Coaching" rather than "Instruction" can help your golf, let me know here.
