After spending much of the first week playing and running basketball camps it was great to get back to golf. This week Kristen and I completed our first session of golf camps at Holywood and after one day spent with the kids it is clear how much golf is loved in Northern Ireland. All the kids were so eager to learn and full of energy, they were especially curious about the United States. I got all sorts of questions ranging from where I was from to my personal favorite, if I knew Tiger Woods. I also learned how popular Disney World is in Northern Ireland, as it seems almost all of the kids have gone on vacation there at some point.
Kristen and I also had our first meeting for the Ulster University Golf team, which was really exciting. We did various ice breaker activities and some team building before going into the season and expectations. The amenities that are available to us are great and will give all the members of the team to make the most of their potential. Along with a strength & conditioning coach and workout plan we have a professional golf coach and range to practice at. I feel extremely grateful that I have a chance to continue to play the sport I love for another year and am looking forward to the first tournament of the season.
