‘Coaching Masterminds’ Brought Together for 2015 Coaches Circle2 min read

Posted on: 30th Jul 2015

The PGAs of Europe Coaches Circle concluded with more than 40 PGA Professionals from all over Europe, together with more from Canada, being stimulated after a series of workshops and presentations at Pravets Golf & Spa Resort, Bulgaria.

21 countries were represented at the event and were brought together under the umbrella theme of youth golf and to time with the EGA’s European Team Shield Championship.

With subject matter such as working with federations, junior player development, high performance in youth golf, junior academies and coaching relationships, the event has already received hugely positive praise:

“The feedback we’ve received so far has been excellent – really first class,” said PGAs of Europe Director of Education & Membership, Tony Bennett.  “With the format we have it is very interactive and rather than just have ‘talking heads’…this has been an opportunity for the delegates to really dig into the minds and souls of the speakers.

“Coaches Circle is a ‘mastermind’ group where coaches are of a like-mind but also a like-task, having similar things to do in terms of dealing with players, national teams, etc., are given an opportunity to work together, bounce ideas off each other… and perhaps give a bit of support.”

The education event continued its tradition of selecting some of the best speakers from across the continent and further afield to educate, inform and discuss the subject matter of youth golf.

“We always take the view that we have lots of good speakers and lots of good people in Europe, and with that in mind you don’t always have to go for celebrity teachers,” added Bennett.  “There’s lots of good work getting done out there every day on every driving range somewhere in Europe.  Those people are working with the players at the sharp end and understand what is going on.  So we felt as though we could put a very good group of people together from that background.”
