Pre-handicap Coaching

The first session of coaching for our pre-handicap girls was held at Strathmore on Saturday 18th March.
It was a freezing cold day but five girls braved the elements and smiled all through the two hours.
Andy Lamb worked with the girls on their long game while Andy's wife Jan put them through their paces pitching and putting.
The girls are continuing to work on the junior golf passport, they had started this last season.
All are hitting the ball very well and should be able to return three cards for handicaps in the coming season.

Looking a wee bit cold: Eilidh Dear, Louise Callum, Lucy McNab Jennifer Smith and Rebecca Hutt.

The next session for these girls will be 6th May hopefully spring will have sprung by then!

Distance measuring devices in County events

After discussion, the Perth & Kinross Ladies County Golf Association Committee has decided the following:

Notwithstanding any local rule that a golf club may have invoked, the use of distance measuring devices is prohibited in any County event during 2006. The use of such a device is in breach of rule 14-3, the penalty for which is disqualification.

Elite Girls Coaching

Sunday 5th March saw the second session of coaching for our elite girls at Gleneagles.
As you see Perthshire displayed one of her most beautiful aspects!
David and John chatted with the girls about their practice routines and the importance of visualization of each shot, both during practice and on the course.
On the range all the girls are hitting with much improved consistency so we expect handicaps to come tumbling down as soon as the season begins.

Below are some of the swings that escaped capture last time!

Laura: 'Twice as Good' or 'Double Trouble'?

A wonderful recovery from a disappointing first round also helped Emily's team of Arkansas-Little Rock secure third place overall in the team event. Well done Emily!
