Mary and Andy Warnock attended a three day golf school this week at the Golf Performance Center @ Old Corkscrew. The weather hit record highs making the hard work they did on the range and golf course extremely warm.
This past weekend six very talented juniors where invited to attend a three day golf school at Old Corkscrew Golf Club with PGA of Canada Professional Dave Smallwood. Matt Chaisson, Keaton Jones, David French, Kirsten Degutis, Madison Easterbrook and Michelle Ruiz all attended the golf school. These juniors all qualified to attend by winning particular tournaments in the Maple Leaf Junior Tour during the 2011 season. The juniors managed to enjoy fantastic weather, attended a Florida Everblades Hockey Game, spent time at the pool and Fort Myers beach. The school included daily morning instruction on the range and 18 holes of golf with Dave Smallwood and assisted by Carrie Vaughan.
Amatuer golfers Alex Carrigan from Guelph is hard at work with his Coach, PGA of Canada Professional Dave Smallwood. Alex is making some tremendous strides on some recent swing changes. He has become a regular on the practise tee at the Old Corkscrew GC in beautiful Estero, Florida.
Alex is a recent graduate from the University of Charleston in West Virginia where he spent 4 years on a golf scholarship where he obtained his business degree.
"I was so pleased at how fast Alex has picked up on some of the changes we have made" stated Smallwood. "He is achieving a flighting and trajectory he has never been able to achieve before, which is vital to compete at the next level"
Alex plans to reside in Florida for the three months of training prior to a busy summer playing schedule.
