Lydia Hall, Ladies European Tour

They aspire to a life at the top of European golf but talented female golfers got an insight into other career options in golf during the recent LETAS Access Series event at Stoke by Nayland.

Around 50 golfers playing in the WPGA International Challenge attended aresentation by David Robinson, The PGA's training manager.

The girls, mostly in their late teens and early 20s, gained an insight into getting PGA qualified to help broaden their career opportunities after their playing years have ended.

Current LET players Lydia Hall and Connie Chen are two who have already enrolled on the PGA's education programme and Robinson reported positive
feedback from the players.

''These girls are all young, want to play and are focused on trying to make it on tour. This is great to hear but it is very hard to succeed on tour. They are going to be working or playing for the next 40 years and in essence I said that if they wanted to stay in golf the PGA route willstand them in good stead.''

The presentation follows a PGA marketing campaign launched earlier this year to promote its world leading education programmes to the next generation of PGA Professionals. Eye-catching infographics, video logs, google display ads and social media were utilised to highlight the opportunities for those who enrol on either The PGA Foundation Degree in Professional Golf Studies or the University of Birmingham¹s Applied Golf Management Studies degree.
