As part of its long-term education strategy and in response to the current challenging climate PGAs and their Members are facing, the Confederation of Professional Golf has announced a new series of free online Masterclass webinars.
The ‘CPG Masterclass Series’ includes a range of online talks and presentations that cover a variety of subjects and topics, delivered by industry leading experts from their respective fields.
CPG Chief Executive Ian Randell commented: “Like most organisations and individuals, PGAs and PGA Members are being affected in a number of ways by the COVID-19 virus. Whilst policies and guidelines differ across our Member Countries, we are taking a number of steps and introducing new initiatives to emphasise ‘togetherness’ and the sharing of knowledge and information, at a time when being part of a community is more important than ever.
“The CPG Masterclass Series is just one of these steps and we will continue to work with the leaders from across our Member PGAs to roll out others over the coming weeks and months – Stay Safe, Stay Learning.”
Through this increased sharing of knowledge and thought-provoking content, the Masterclass Series embodies the CPG’s guiding principles of ‘Togetherness, Collaboration and Development’, and aims to provide both new and supplementary golf education resources for the benefit of CPG Member Country PGAs and PGA Members alike.
The initial schedule of speakers includes a focus on the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic on golf with Dr Andrew Murray and Dr Roger Hawkes, Project Leaders for the Golf & Health initiative, communication science and its relation to golf coaching with Marie Jeffery, marketing and student relationships for golf instructors with Jose Vicente Perez, structuring practice and lessons with Adam Young, social media for PGA Professionals with Emma Ballard, along with a variety of other content already scheduled.
Regular announcements of upcoming webinars will be released in due course, with an aim to provide frequent, accessible sessions to enable as many PGA representatives and PGA Members to attend.
