England Coaching Experience

A piece of history is being written this week at Woodhall Spa. 11 players (one had to pull out due to an injury at the last minute) of varying age and ability are enjoying the first ever England Coaching Experience. For two and a half days they get to see what it is like to be an England player and enjoy (or is it endure?) the same programme as the England Squad would normally be subject to. England Coaches Gary Smith and David Ridley together with England physio Andy Larmour and England Psychologist Brian Hemmings are due to have their hands full with a group of players who I would guess is not quite as used to the 14 hour days packed with physical activity.

This first England Coaching Experience is meant to pilot whether this is something that is worth doing on a more regular basis. The aim is obviously to bring some funding into the rest of the English Coaching Programme but also to provide something like a “what money can’t buy”, at least not on the regular market, to golfers that are just very keen to become better golfers. There are plenty of golf schools out there but there is only one place you can go to get England Coaching!

The fact that this first pilot sold out in a heartbeat suggests that this is something we should do again. So stay tuned for your chance to explore England Coaching…
