LAST COACHING DAY – SUNDAY 19TH MARCH 2017
We have been so lucky with the weather and our coaching days this year – Sunday was grey - but no rain, and only a little wind!
This last day of coaching with Karen and Stuart at Millfield consisted of eight sets of “stations” – short game play ranging from chipping to lob shots, and ended with putting regime game – good fun, needed keen concentration and team co-operation!
All who attended, really enjoyed the day and gained a lot - statistics are still showing great improvement. All is well for the coming season!
We said a sad farewell to Millfield, but will have Karen and Stuart with us until after match week in July.
Sunday 15th October 2017
Our first coaching session of the 2017/18 season with our new coach Terry Williams got underway in fine, dry weather at Farrington Park GC.
The group was split into two (am and pm) – as the total number in the squad is 21. It's a shame that all sorts of other commitments got in the way of a lot of the girls attending – Uni’ / SW coaching / Work and illness. None the less, we had x5 in each group.
The day was good – very informative, with all getting to grips with “green books”, a way of reading and planning putts on the greens. Warm-up, short game, and putting was covered first, and then onto the course to open shoulders and take a closer look at the greens – devising “Starburst” charts!
Attached two photos of the girls – happy faces as everyone enjoyed the day.
Our next coaching session is booked for Sunday 5th November 2017 – we may need warmer clothing!
LADIES SQUAD COACHING ON SUNDAY 5TH NOVEMBER 2017
A bright sunny day dawned for us this Sunday.
Fifteen of the squad turned out for coaching at Farrington Park Golf Club – bunker play was sorted first, with lessons taken on board – then off to play some holes on the nine hole course, incorporating newly acquired knowledge.
A break for lunch – and then back into the bunkers!
All played five holes on the main course – using green card charts devised in our last session. All enjoyed the session, it was good to get together as a team.
Attached are some photos, and as you can see – we had rainbows and sharp showers!
