Paul Thompson the advanced PGA coach at Powerscourt has also been involved in Irish golf development for over a decade. In his Provincial coaching with the Golfing Union of Ireland Paul has worked with many fine young players including Shane Lowry (European tour winner) Nile Kearney (walker cup) and many players who have gone onto to play international or provincial golf or indeed have turned professional. Recently one of his students won the Munster Youths Amateur Open Championship. Despite being still only 17 Jack Walsh, who plays in the Castle Golf Club, has already experienced his fair share of success and he told Paul during his last coaching session he wants to continue to improve.
Paul commented “It’s great when one of your students wins something like this, you feel so pleased for them.” On working with elite type players the coach said “It is very interesting and sometimes it can be the smallest adjustment that can make a big difference, however I am not sure it replaces the fun and enjoyment you get from seeing a beginner or high handicap player do something really good for the first time.”
