28 January 2011, Singapore – Dressed in a full Taylormade adidas Golf outfit from head to toe, I was determined to rekindle with my golfing roots which I abandoned some 3 years ago. Holly Jean, Beatrice Tan and myself were going to get a few hours of training from Lee Carrington, a member of the Australian Coaching Council and a fully accredited Level II Teaching Professional with the Australian LPGA. Lee has been coaching in Singapore since 1998. Amongst the three of us, I am the only one who has played on the course. So I couldn’t embarrass myself at Tanah Merah Country Club!!
Lee taught us the basic theory of golf before some hands on. We were given the hole-by-hole explanation as well as a map of the golf course and a score card. She explained to us the basics and what to look out for on tournament day.
Now to the more exciting action where we actually get to hold the clubs. Here we were taught the different types of golf clubs as well as the very important grip. Thank you Lee for the great tips. You got my swing back in no time.
One thing’s for sure. We were all having fun.
Smiles were spotted by Dennis who was photographing our session. He took 500 over photos!!
After the clinic, Lee brought us round garden course to give us a hole-by-hole explanation. This is the course that the ladies will be competing for the HSBC Women’s Champions from 24 – 27 February 2011 as they vie for the US$1.4 million prize purse. I am looking forward to watching the tournament and hopefully capturing some interesting photos.
