This funding will be used to give talented youngsters (U18s and U16s) from clubs higher level county coaching and playing lessons to improve their overall approach to the game. This will concentrate on the controllable areas within a golfer’s game – game preparation, course management, focused practice, mindset, warm up, measuring etc.
The talented juniors identified by the Junior Organisers in each club will be able to gain the benefit county coaching and playing lessons in order to progress further into county junior teams and elite squads.
Key outcomes and success are
– progression against personal targets set
– handicap reduction
– increasing matches won/lost
– better competition results
The funding will support the following development objectives:-
Previous Taskers funding has enabled us to develop a “player pathway” where we are able to track the progress of junior golfers and to support them when required. As such, some of our juniors have been able to progress at County, Regional and National level.
