Day 4: Short game and putting
It was day No. 4 for the Le Bureau group on the exclusive “Handicap on Track” coaching trip to Vilamoura. The clients played the Old Course today and encountered windy conditions that were reminiscent of its namesake in St Andrews!
The stunning pine trees lining the fairway made clear to the golfers that it was certainly not a links course they were playing and placed a premium on accuracy from the tee. Learning to cope with the wind is an important part of golf and coach Graham Kaye was on hand to offer some tips such as keeping the ball flight lower and playing punch shots.
The coaching session focused on speed control on long putts today and the group took part in some competitive drills to give some added incentive to improve.
The next stage of the programme tomorrow is course management and, of course, a round on the challenging Millennium Course.
