Well, how was it for you this year? Did you achieve all your 2017 golfing goals? Handicap reduction, captains prize, national title? If not, why not?
I’ve personally played the least golf this year since I first started on this crazy journey way back in 1988 and for very good reason, I’ve been too busy helping everybody else achieve their goals! Plenty of early mornings and late evenings have seen the Getgolfing.ie stable showcase their talents at club, county, provincial, national and international levels. Trophies aplenty, including –
17 club competition wins
Kerry Boys championship
Kerry Girls championships
Kerry Boys league
Munster Fred Daly Plate
Munster Ladies Senior cup
Munster Ladies Senior Foursomes
Leinster Ladies Championship
All Ireland Mens Junior Cup
All Ireland Ladies Senior Cup
All Ireland Ladies Senior Foursomes
Irish Girls Champion
Ladies Home Internationals
2 Hole in ones and a 2 year scholarship to the US
But after all that, the coaching achievement that I am most proud of this year comes from a new and hopefully one time student, JC from Tralee. JC is not a golfer at all, but quite an accomplished Pitch & Putt player –
”Hi Mark, just to let you know that I can’t thank you enough for our last lesson. It’s been 3 months and I haven’t shanked a wedge since. I’m in the match play final and a lot more confident, thanks”.
So if you have any unfulfilled golfing goals look to improve one area of your game that will make a difference or give me a call to discuss starting on a long term improvement plan, Spring 2018 is only just around the corner!
