Golf is in Great Hands at St. Clare's

Congratulations to Ms Michelle Clarke of St. Clare’s College for her appointment as MyGolf Schools Ambassador.  For a number of years now Michelle has been delivering an inspirational golf program for students at St. Clare’s College.

This year Michelle was interested in incorporating a ‘Swing Fit’ component into her program and she invited Sue Harrison from Jack Newton Junior Golf to provide the girls with some additional ‘moves.’ Michelle’s program already includes a variety of activities that encourages skill and technical mastery of putting, chipping, full swing and bunker play.  The program also incorporates visits to Canberra International Pitch n Putt.

The school oval is smooth enough to putt on, and hitting mats where used to protect the beautifully manicured turf while the girls chipped and hit around the oval.  We did some golf specific stretching and strengthening exercises, which proved to be a little challenging for some of the girls.

Thank you to St. Clare’s College students for their interest and for Michelle’s inspiration and imagination.  With all the intricacies of golf, the students showed a strong knowledge of the technical skills of the game and effectively applied it to their own golf swings.  It was evident that they had received some quality coaching by Michelle prior to the Swing Fit session.  Well done girls – awesome effort!
