Q). What is the importance of the coaching in the game of Golf?
Our beloved sport, golf, is one of the sports where the ball is stationary. So like other sports, it is not as much instinctive. Therefore, a sound swing technique based on a particular body type would help that person a lot to play better golf. More than improving your technique, making the player understand the suggested changes will make him realize why and what are they doing.
Q). Advice for Upcoming and Junior Golfers of Pakistan?
To juniors, I would suggest to make sure they maintain a file containing all there tournament results and golf achievements. Juniors should do so as this will help them in getting a USA golf scholarship. In my view, getting a scholarship in USA and playing NCAA should be the aim for all junior golfers in Pakistan.
Q). What are your future plans in terms of the Golf Academy?
I surely have plans for our academy. I would love to have an academy’s premises containing a gym with a TPI instructor, a few PGA coaches, a sports psychologist and an equipment fitting studio.
