"better–player"

Camp Excellence

Every year I get all my "better–player" students together for a camp. We stay overnight at one of the houses at Devonvale, we cook together and have lots of fun with golf. I always have a theme to these camps that goes along with the holistic approach to golf. The theme could be swing technique, fitness, mental skills or short game for example. I normally invite a guest coach as a specialist in his/her field to inspire the players a little extra. This past camp, Grant Hepburn was invited to join us as our theme was swing technique.

Camp ExcellenceWe normally start off the camp with an opening session going through our expectation of the days of the camp. Then we head onto the course to play 9 holes together in a fun format. In the evening we cook together and I also normally invite one of my former students to speak about "life as a student–athlete playing golf on a scholarship to the States". After a few hours of sleep, the morning always starts off with fitness. After breakfast and a quick shower we practice golf the whole day. I set up lots of different short game stations and challenges and the guests coach also shares his expertise with us. We normally round the camp off with a quiz and touch base on our expectations and goals that we set in the beginning of the camp. At the end of the 2 days, there is a prize giving of course, with exclusive sought after Swedish goodies. Needless to say, these camps are great, not only for camaraderie but also for inspiration and fun with golf. Guess if we have a good time??
