One week in and having a blast!!
One week into my trip to the Michelle Holmes School of Golf and having a great time so far!
It's great spending time with like minded coaches, who I can bounce ideas of, ask lots of questions and share ideas with. I’m picking up something new each day.
This first week has involved helping out with private lessons, group practice sessions and pee wee classes.
Michelle has at least 25 players heading to the US Kids World Championships in Pinehurst next week, so final preparations are well under way. These kids work so hard throughout the year, really this week is all about building on their confidence and making sure they are ready for the event.
There’s lots of excitement with some of the kids going to Pinehurst for the very first time. Michelle and I will make the trip up on Monday 30th July, with US Kids duties starting on Tuesday 31st July. One of the most exciting parts of the US Kids World Championships is the Opening Ceremony parade which takes place on Tuesday evening through the village of Pinehurst. Watch out for a live video feed on the U.S. Kids Golf Facebook page.
I am also very excited to catch up with US Kids North of Ireland Local tour players who will all be making the trip in the next couple of days. Players travelling from the tour include Ollie McEvoy, John William Burke, Parker Bonnes and Tomas Owens.
Keep your eyes open for more updates from Pinehurst!!
