Jamie Cundy, a ‘PGA Fellow Professional’, has been selected alongside more than 20 other top golf professionals, to coach for The PGA and The R&A on the Swingzone stand at Royal Troon next month.

This will be the West Midlands’ club’s professional’s fourth Open Championship in a row.

He commented: “The Open Championship is the best golf tournament in the world where I get to teach with the best coaches in the country. Although it’s a long week of solid coaching around 3,000 golfers, it is the pinnacle of my coaching year where I get to meet many of my golfing heroes.

“It’s always wonderful, you never know who you are going to get – I’ve had people who’ve never picked up a club to seriously good players.

“It’s mentally quite challenging because every 15 minutes you have to put on a different hat depending on who turns up – it might be an arm round the shoulder, cheerleader, psychologist, a technical lesson, someone who’s never played – you have to adapt.

“This will be my first time at Royal Troon Golf Club and I look forward to helping hundreds of golfers during the week. All the coaching we give to the general public is free of charge for the spectators at The Open Championship.”

In May Jamie completed three days coaching for junior golf charity the Golf Foundation at The BMW Championship at Wentworth.

He spends his working week at Dudley Golf Club as its resident professional. He is also a PGA director of golf and uses his management skill on a daily basis for Dudley GC.
