2015 Coaches Circle – Registration Now Live & Speakers Confirmed3 min read

Posted on: 18th May 2015

Registrations for the 2015 Coaches Circle are now live, whilst the main speaker lineup has been confirmed for the two-day education event.

The Coaches Circle takes place from the 27 – 28 July, 2015 at Pravets Golf & Spa Resort, Bulgaria, and will see national coaches, coaches of elite players (on a level 1,2 or 3 tour), and coaches involved in national junior programmes, attend theory and practical sessions.

This year’s event will focus on Junior Golf and the issues around development, retention, and working with talented young players, drawing on the vast experience of the speakers in the schedule.

Day One will begin with a session from PGAs of Europe Education Committee (EC) Chairman, Jonathan Mannie, looking at the challenges of coaching players to meet Federation objectives, followed by fellow EC Member, Martin Westphal, and his ‘ingredients for junior player development’.

Later in Day One, High Performance Manager for the Irish Ladies Golf Union (ILGU), David Kearney, will give an account of a girl’s journey in and out of high performance golf, which will be followed up with a panel session to close the first day.

Day Two begins with Director of Coaching for the Cranfield Golf Academy, Steven Orr’s, session detailing the skills and character traits of young players, whilst Managing Director of KRL Consulting, Karl Morris, will draw on his experience with both the Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke Golf Schools for his session on expectations and benefits of juniors attending a structured junior golf academy.

Advanced Fellow of the PGA of Great Britain & Ireland from the Impact Golf Academy, Ian Peek, will then look at the relationships between home coaches and their national/regional counterparts and whether this is a case of ‘coaching ego over player success’.
