New Professional with a new Role
Kegan Jamieson joined us on the 1st February 2018 as the Club Professional. Kegan will be combining managing the shop and related services with also being available to all members as a coach, helping individuals and groups to improve their game. Watch this space for more information about lesson programmes.
Kegan tells us:
“His drive and enthusiasm for the game of Golf and everything associated with it has been his passion since he turned professional at the age of 19.
Having gained qualifications in Business Management and completing a degree in Professional Golf at Birmingham University, I have always looked to improve my knowledge wherever possible.
The desire to improve has led me to learn from others and apply what I learn’t to forwarding my career towards my goal of becoming a first rate Club Professional. I also have a passion for using the latest technology with golf tuition and am always looking for innovative ways to improve my pupils’ golf.”
Kegan has achieved a PGA DEGREE. This is a three year degree course, based at University of Birmingham with training taking place at the national PGA training academy at the Belfry. The course consists of various topic areas which each pro needs to have good understanding. These include:
Custom Fit and Equipment Technology
All on top of passing playing tests, PGA professionals must have a handicap of 3 or below before taking the degree and must perform well during the course in professional events to achieve PGA membership. Kegan also holds all certificates required to coach adults and children:
Level 1 and 2 Golf Coaching awards
Kegan’s informative, yet relaxed approach has created an environment that has attracted all levels of golfers. This has resulted in an individual tailored approach to coaching rather than teaching a specific method. We hope all members will welcome and support Kegan as we look to enhance the benefits of being a member at our Club.
