Gleneagles 29/01/06

Our elite group of girls had their first coaching session at Gleneagles on Sunday 29th January.

The girls are pictured above, back row:

Eve Muirhead, Karen Dunbar, Janet Griffiths ( County Captain ), Dawn Butchart ( Vice Captain )

front row:

Laura Campbell, Lucy Gilmour, Jacqueline Sneddon, Annabel Niven, Fiona Allan.

Captain Janet welcomed the girls, wishing them an enjoyable and successful season, she encouraged them to enter as many as possible of the SLGA and LGU Junior Fixtures. She also hoped that they will take part in the county meetings, especially the championship.

Stewart and David, the two Gleneagles professionals, then took over and found out a little about the aims and targets the girls have set for themselves. Moving on to the range they did some work on short irons this enabled the professionals to get an idea of the girls strengths and weaknesses. They finished off with some pitching work.

Hopefully the girls have found the session useful, we can see how well some of them are swinging from the pictures below!

If your swing is not here, don't worry, I'll catch you next time!

13 year old Carly Booth (Comrie) is the only Scottish member in the squad of 10 teenagers from Great Britain & Ireland invited to take part in the Nick Faldo International Series Trophy tournament in Hong Kong. This will be the second time Carly has made the trip to Hong Kong. The tournament is over 36 holes on Wednesday and Thursday. Winning players will play against Nick Faldo in a "champions' shoot-out" on the Friday. This is a fantastic opportunity for Carly to compete with her international contemporates and to attend off-course activities including seminars with Nick Faldo plus fitness and rules workshops.

We wish Carly well and hope she has a fantastic trip.
