Junior Training- Skill Tests

Throughout the winter Under 16 and Under 18 squads have been attending training sessions at either Aldeburgh or Felixstowe Ferry Golf Clubs.

There have been five sessions for each group together with a final joint session, Aldeburgh Head Professional Keith Preston has led the sessions assisted by Robert Joyce and Alastair Spink or Lawrence Dodd. There were 18 boys in the Under squad and 12 in the Under 16's.

At all of the sessions as well as learning about the physical, theoretical and mental side of golf the boys have undertaken skills tests in all aspects of the game- driving, iron play, pitching, chipping, bunker play and putting. Over the duration of the training points were awarded for each test with the scores accumulated throughout the winter.

On completion of the final session at Felixstowe Ferry trophies and vouchers were awarded to the leading points scorer in each group. The winner of the Under 18's was George Copsey of Felixstowe Ferry with Fionn O'Reilly of Thorpeness taking the Under 16 prize. They are pictured with Mike Stevenson, Chair of Suffolk Junior Golf.
