APRIL 7TH FARRINGTON PARK
For once we had great weather today, so plan A ran smoothly. We had 12 girls for today’s session and we met in the range and tried to chip balls off of very high tee pegs. We imagined they were coconuts, just like the fairground but no teddy bears or goldfish were up for grabs.
We then played Drive, Chip Putt and the girls really took to it. So much so, that they want a crack at it again next week, to try and beat their scores.
Kira 115, Grace 105, Maisie 100, Milly 88, Ava 75, Evie 74, Alice 66, Lilia 62, JoJo 56, Lola 51, Abi 51, Emma 43
Well done to Kira, she is the girl to beat next week. (Pic, bottom right)
After DCP we played a Texas Scramble where Milly, Maisie, Jo Jo and Ava came out on top beating the other 2 groups by just one shot. (Pic. top left)
At break we were treated by Evie with an amazing lemon drizzle cake and it was delicious. We also must give a big thank you out to all the volunteers, Fran Davies, Margaret Allen, Pat Roscoe and Sue Skyrme who helped out tremendously, we could not have run today’s session without you.
Chris, Dave and Terry are looking forward to much of the same next week. for our rearranged Feb session.
Rearranged coaching on April 14th
We had 13 girls join in the session today for another dose of drive chip putt.
During the putting game we stopped to watch Annabelle's fantastic putting routine that is very similar to a Somerset Lady County Champion. Hopefully we can organise some video footage for all to see.
After the chipping we showed you a way of getting the floaty flight by keeping the loft on the club face, this was excellently demonstrated by Ffion.
Prior to the driving we worked on routine, shoulder alignment and trying to jink, jink, jink to see the club face again when posing.
Here are the scores from the girls who were able to complete DCP.
Seren 102 Annabelle 95 Evie 62 JoJo 37 Lilia 60 Ffion 117 Abi 44 Ashleigh 45, Amber 74 Milly 90 Maisie 60
A brilliant score from Ffion won her first prize, closely followed by Seren.
We also had two instant prizes for the 2 girls that knocked the coconuts off and they went to Amber and Milly. Well done to Ava who did as much as she could one handed and smiling all the way through the session and once again we must thank Evie for her amazing cake making...the red velvet cake was just as good as the lemon drizzle from last week. It’s up to you now girls for a few weeks to keep on top of your games.
Chris, Dave and Terry are looking forward to seeing you at the all squads get together on May 12th.
May 12th Farrington Park Combined squads day
A lovely afternoon at Farrington Park for an all squads get together with 34 girls.
Once the girls had been split into 3 groups the first hour was spent on the putting greens rotating around 3 different challenges....skills with Shane and Simon, reading greens with Stuart and controlling pace with Chris and Terry.
Captains from the Performance and Development groups were then picked to play Texas Scramble on the front 9 of the championship course with other Development girls and Futures girls. It was absolutely brilliant to watch you all gel together and motivate one another, I’m sure you all watched some wonderful shots.
Before we could play we had to sample some amazing millionaire shortbread made by Evie...I think it gave you all a buzz before playing.
Not all groups managed to complete 9 holes in the allotted time so here are the results for the best 6 holes Gross and we had some amazing scores.
Davina Libbie Amber Lilia -2
Lizzy Annabelle Lucy Ashleigh Even Par
Ellen Kira Polly Emma Even Par
Frankie Grace JoJo Chloe +1
Leah Milly Amy (3 ball) +3
Natasha Alex Lilia +5
We will make sure a prize makes its way to the winning team through your county coaches.
Well done everyone today and thanks to all the parents for bringing all the girls to sessions this season and to all the helpers who have given their time to help out. Dave, Pat and Margaret were invaluable today.
Have a great summer and we will invite you to Somerset Girls Coaching in October.
