Since passing my playing ability test back in August, I have undergone an intensive week of training at the PGA training academy @ The Belfry. Alongside this I have been going through lots of learning materials from the course, developing my knowledge and completing 4 out of the 5 assignments set in year 1.

My assignments are based around the following areas –

Selling & Customer Service (Done)

Golf Coaching (Done)

Golf Retailing (Done)

Sports Science & Junior Development (Done)

Custom Fitting (Doing Now)


Alongside the academic work, I also have to play 7 competitive rounds of golf each year. This includes pro only and pro-am events, so if anyone would like to play in a pro-am then please feel free to get in touch with me.

Please follow the link to the events that are available to play -

Have a look and if you are interested and have a team, then let me know and if you are interested but don’t have a team, then still let me know as I can piece a team together with other people. Either contact me via work or via my own golf Facebook page - DanielWestAssistantPGA.

Alongside this I have managed to secure two sponsorship deals for 2019 with Terry from TW Body Repairs and Phil from Island Fire Alarms. Which will help with the transport and entry fee’s into more competitive events across the country.

With this I have also got a contract with Cobra to play their clubs for the next 2 years! Follow my blogs to find out what’s in my bag and why I’ve chosen to play what I have.
