The Junior Golf Performance
Centre at Manchester Golf Club was established by PGA Professional
Scott Connor in 2006, there are now more than 60 junior golfers taking part
in lessons at the club. House of Golf Assistant Ryan Grumbridge has recently
taken over the development of Junior Golf at Manchester Golf Club and in
the wider community. With pupils as young as five, Ryan can work on a one-to-one
basis with boys and girls and also teach juniors in groups.
The Junior Golf Passport which is promoted
by the Golf Foundation has proved to be a great motivation for the youngsters,
as it provides key skills for game improvement at a steady pace. All areas
of the game are worked on throughout the scheme.
The Golf Performance Team has a wealth of
experience when it comes to junior golf. Scott Connor was a junior county
player and Faldo Series Finalist he is a qualified PGA Professional who
has spent time in the States with Butch Harmon, Chuck Cook and Bob Toski
to improve his coaching skills. He works with elite Junior Golfers at the
Golf Performance Centre.
Ryan Grumbridge is an accomplished professional
who is currently in his second year as a trainee with the Professional Golfers
One of the aims of
the Junior Performance Centre is to share this wealth of experience with
up and coming golfers. Advice can be given on tournaments to enter and golfing
schedules, all tailored to enhance the individual's development.
Links have been established with County organisations,
the Golf Foundation and numerous other junior organisations to enable us
to provide the best advice available.

Ping Factory Visit
The Junior Performance Centre and Manchester Golf Club Junior
Section organised a visit to the Ping Factory in Gainsborough. During the
visit the young golfers learned about the importance of having correctly
fitted golf clubs, how golf clubs are manufactured and the technology that
is involved. It was a great experience for everyone!
