Toby Tree helpsÂ inspire Golf AtÂ GoodwoodÂ prospects
Toby Tree has provided advice and inspiration to some ofÂ Golf At Goodwood's most aspiring and competitive juniorsÂ
The club ambassador delivered a special performance coaching session last month.
Hosted on the Downs Course driving range and putting green, eight juniors were treated to a two-and-a-half-hour masterclass, which focused on getting the most out of their training.
Tree, a European Challenge Tour professional who missed the cut at the final stage of Q School this week, imparted his wealth of knowledge on warming up and maintaining flexibility, playing different shots and tailoring each training session to achieve different goals.
He said: '˜It's great Goodwood hosts events like this, getting the juniors all down practising together.
'˜When you are practising, you want friends and a group to work withÂ because practising on your own can get boring at times and playing with others helps keep you competitive.
'˜The set up at Goodwood is really good and the facilities here have personally helped me a lot with my game.
'˜When I was younger there wereÂ a few peopleÂ I looked up to and being able to see how they did things was really helpful.
'˜I think it's good for them to be able to see players who are bit older, how they play and whether what they do is similar or different.
'˜Hopefully that can help them improve.'
Among the juniors learning from Tree was Joe Sykes, Goodwood's youngest ever scratch team player.
He said:Â '˜The session with Toby was a great experience for all the juniors attending and the stories he told us about life on the tour made it really interesting and valuable.
'˜I look forward to watching his progress.'
