The 2018 Achievers’ Camp concluded at the Hero Women’s Indian Open with the girls being photographed with the event winner, Becky Morgan, at the prize giving ceremony.
Earlier in the day, the girls had a ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour and learned about the TV operation, the scoring procedures and the work of the golf journalists in the Media Centre. They watched the final groups go off the first tee and were then given the opportunity to hit balls onto the chipping green and driving range under the supervision of LET players Victoria Lovelady, Kiran Matharu, Astrid Vayson de Pradenne and Caroline Martens.
As the camp came to an end, some of the girls were asked about their time at a professional women’s golf event. One of the campers said: “I really enjoyed it. This was a really good experience and I’ve learned a lot. I feel like a lot of junior golfers in India need to come to events like this and learn from the players.”
Another one of the girls commented: “The camp was great! Watching the clinics and the players on the course was incredible. I hope I can take all these experiences into when I turn Pro.”
Before leaving, the girls were asked if they think the camp will have motivated them to go on to bigger and better things, the response was a resounding: “YES!”
After what was a memorable three days, the girls will return to their home clubs and tell inspiring stories and maybe they will return at some point in the future to take part in the main event and speak to the next generation of campers.
