2017 Coaching Reports

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!
