TIGER NEWSLETTER | TERM 4 | 2019

TERM 4 REVIEW Term 4 had a taste of all four seasons with blistering heat one week and freezing winds the next, nevertheless our Junior Tiger Cubs soldiered on. We witnessed great improvements not only from a technical standpoint but also in the area of body control and speed development which underpins our belief of developing athletic golfers through the JTGP. For some of our Tiger Cubs term 4 brought about their first experience of competitive golf via the MyGolf Junior League. It was fantastic to see our young boys and girls exposed to on course competition, whilst supported by a teammate thanks to the modified format. Coaches were particularly impressed to hear that our Cubs were now not only thinking about how best to hit, chip or putt the ball but also how best to navigate the course. We look forward to seeing this event and others like it assist our Cubs from practice fairway to the course. Our intermediate group also made the most of Term 4 moving their focus primarily to playing their own ball on course. All players noticed the increased challenge this provided and began to realise the importance of implementing solid decision making when out on course This is another step towards playing regularly and independently on course which is the aim of the JTGP. In 2020 we will see the Cubs session move to 60 minutes in length to allow for more content, practice and more games to assist in the skill development of our participants.

Junior Mygolf League Glenelg participated in the annual MyGolf Junior League for a third time in 2019. The MyGolf Junior League is an interclub competition designed to give the children an introduction to competition golf on a modified golf course in a two person ambrose format. The main focus of this competition is to create a fun environment for the children where they get to meet other children from other courses. Congratulations to all players that were involved in the 2019 season of the Junior MyGolf League. Our team had a lot of fun along the way and finished 2nd in the competion which was an added bonus for the participants. Thank you to all parents and grandparents that assisted throughout the season and provided great support. A huge thank you in particular to Magan Schaefer and James Pyke who helped manage the team each week.
