Yes you can. You will still be assigned a regional performance coach for your Scottish Golf Academy programme. Our aim is to create a working team to help you with your performance development plan.
The Regional Performance coach will oversee the your golf performance and training plan, results and use key statistics gathered from competition and practice to build an effective plan for improvement in competitions.
You may be required to travel based on your assigned regional performance coach and residential camp locations.
The Regional Performance Coach will be in contact with their players every month, so missed sessions should be communicated in advance if possible. However you must make yourself available for residential training camps.
