Club pro breaks 100… in a way

Inside Golf - - News -

TEACH­ING pro­fes­sional Ross Moodie has bro­ken 100...for his stu­dents.

In the past 12 months, the Coolan­gatta Tweed Heads-based club pro has man­aged to re­duce the hand­i­caps of 15 of his stu­dents by a com­bined 113 shots.

Top of the pops was Peter Baldry who re­duced his hand­i­cap from 36 to 17 – a re­duc­tion of 19 shots.

Next best was Nathan Bax­ter who dropped 14 shots from a 30 hand­i­cap to 16.

But Moodie is par­tic­u­larly proud of one of his star pupils, Re­becca Kay, who won the Queens­land U12 Aus­tralian School Sports Golf Cham­pi­onship by 15 shots.

Kay has re­duced her hand­i­cap from 14 to four this year.

Moodie started coach­ing her in Fe­bru­ary 2010 when she played off a 30 hand­i­cap.

“My coach­ing re­sults for 2011 were ex­tremely good, prob­a­bly my ca­reer best,” said Moodie, who has been coach­ing kids at grass­roots level for 30 years.
