Swedens Super Summit for Coaches TeachersThe PGA of Sweden’s forthcoming annual 3-day Coaching Summit, at Halmstad (March 9-11), is entitled ‘START…STAY…SUCCEED’ and features a transatlantic line-up of star speakers designed to continue the pursuit of excellence by teachers and coaches.

From America’s ‘Mr Wedge’ Bob Vokey, whose famous design has sold more than a seven million worldwide, to orthopaedic surgeon Ernst B Zwick, MD PD, the speakers will provide an educational master class of golfing knowledge.

Bob Vokey will be accompanied by fellow American Steve Pelisek (below), general manager of Titleist’s golf club business worldwide. Their presentation will cover wedge design, loft and bounce combinations, sole grinds, fitting tour players and amateurs, spin versus trajectory control, and the shot-making techniques of great players.

Ernst Zwick’s presentation will be on the essential subject of the development of junior players and how biological differences between individuals which, if not understood and appreciated, could hinder their progress.
