While Adam Scott may have just conquered Augusta, a two-day training camp held in Portugal earlier this month offered the chance for those attending to become Masters of SNAG Golf.

The sessions, held with our SNAG Distributor Henrique Duarte, Irrimac, saw a mix of professionals, educational-based individuals and volunteers come along to find out more about the best way to teach the fundamentals of the sport in a fun way.

Under the guidance of SNAG Master Trainer, Tony Howarth, a total of 17 people came along to be shown the techniques, as well as the chance to have a go themselves outside.

On day two the Golf Channel were present to interview Tony and several attendees after recording them taking part in the SNAG games and activities.

A Level Two training course is now being planned for the future in Portugal, giving the opportunity to show the progression from SNAG to traditional equipment as we look to mould the future stars of golf.

So while no one ended up wearing a Green Jacket at the conclusion, the course was still heralded as a ‘major success’.
