Return of investment

Imagine you are 16 or 17 years old and you have just been called to your first coaching session of the winter with the England Boys’ Team. This is held at the National Golf Centre in Woodhall Spa and you are due there on the Friday. When you get there you meet the Lead Coach, the rest of the staff and – Daniel Willett! The European superstar has decided to spend the weekend with his coach, Graham Walker, to pin down a couple of things in preparation for the final race towards Dubai. Now the coaching weekend has become partly a chance to learn from some great coaches and also an opportunity to benchmark yourself against a ‘real player’. This player also happens to be one of the friendliest that has ever walked in a pair of golf shoes and the amount of information that is available at Woodhall Spa has just skyrocketed, through the roof.

This could be a pretty nice thing to have couldn’t it? Or it could just be the first England U18 weekend that took place just this weekend. Thanks a million Daniel Willett!
