If you don’t know already, I have recently started on my pathway to becoming a PGA Professional. The course officially started on October 1st 2018, with various assignments and playing regulations being set from the start. I have a total of 7 assignments due over the course of the academic year and I must enter a minimum  of 7 professional events every year! So please, if you would be interested in playing a pro-am with me, come and have a chat with me and I will be happy to look at some courses and dates that are available that we could play in together 🙂

I have devised a plan with my golf and my assignments, where I plan to try and get the majority of my assignments done and out of the way over the winter period. I’m not a massive fan of playing in the winter, some may say I’m a bit of a fair weather golfer. However, I think I have done my share of playing in bad conditions from below freezing and snow to torrential rain & wind. So I know the best ways to effectively stay warm and dry even in the worst conditions.

As a good example of this, I’ve recently helped a lady from wearing 7 layers of clothing and still not quite 100% warm, down to just 3 layers and getting a bit cosy! This was achieved by getting the correct clothing and layers to keep you warm! This then allowed her to swing the golf club more freely and she therefore had a better golfing experience.

If you need help getting the correct layers or the correct clothing, then please come and see me and I will be happy to help. Certain types of clothing to stay away from would be such things as –

Cable Knitted Jumpers - Too bulky & the fibres are too spaced apart, which releases too much heat.

Summer Clothing - These are designed to keep heat out and disperse heat away from the body.

Please come and see me and I will be happy to help you out in any way I can. Also, if you have Facebook and want to follow me on my personal journey through my PGA and follow my latest scores or hints and tips.
