My expectations were pretty high as Idzwan was telling me the training is very detailed and every single shot is recorded. Just before 8am, I received the weekly training log and also my daily training log from Lawrie Montague.
The training was very detailed because we cover every aspect of the game from full swing, chips, pitch, bunkers, approaches, scrape shots and even trouble shots. The best part is, every single stroke is recorded and this allows us to determine the percentage of my shots being in the target diameter.
Once the training at the back was completed, we packed up all the equipment and headed back down to the putting green next to the clubhouse and ended the day with our putting drills.
On the 5th of October, I had my first golf course instruction. Right at the beginning of the session, I immediately felt the difference in confidence and my ability to maintain my focus and concentration longer. This is all due to the amount of hours that we actually spend concentrating when we do our practice. The training set out has different intensity levels and it is adjusted accordingly with what we train for the day.
On the 7th of October, it was the end of the first week of training at PTGC and Lawrie ended the day with a friendly 18 hole short game competition between the students.
The training method adopted by PTGC is very personalized due to the amount of students. PTGC limits the amount of students each term for personalized attention to each student and this makes it a lot more effective compared to academies with large amount of students with only 1 or 2 coaches.
All in all, the first week went really well, surpassing my already high expectations. I can't wait for next week's training to begin. PTGC, you will be seeing me A LOT not only for this term but also in the coming months and terms. This is definitely the best experience I've ever had in training.
