Will's PGA Journey - May 2019
Now the golf season is fully underway we are all very busy at work with the Pro Shop, teaching and playing.
I have had a few good results at competitions, and currently stand 2nd in the Yorkshire Assistants Order of Merit after three events so I'm hoping my run of success continues!
It is coming to the end of my 2nd year of study and I had several end of year exams: Equipment Tech (all about gear effect, spin and club designs), Business (financial recording, taxation, budgeting and forecasting) and Coaching (impact factors, swing principles, video analysis and practice routines). They all seemed to go well, so I will find out those results in August.
At the start of May I passed my level 2 Coaching, passing the final part of the course where I had to give a 20 minutes full swing lesson and an explanation demonstration of a bunker shot, so now I am a level 2 coach I have started teaching; I am currently going into primary schools teaching the kids golf using Tri Golf equipment, and the odd private lesson and there.
I’m looking forward to a bit more time to play over the summer now!
