THREE times European Tour winner Richie Ramsay thrilled young members at Blairgowrie Golf Club.
Carbon Financial enjoys a corporate partnership with Blairgowrie Golf Club and our Tour ambassador was taking a break from the build-up to the Dunhill Links Championship.
“It was great to see youngsters so enthusiastic about their golf and keen to learn,” said Richie.
“I was playing Rosemount earlier in the day and the facilities at the club are ideal for members and visitors.
“There is an ambitious youth development programme in place and I was happy to give the kids a few pointers.”
Ramsay still has three events left this season – the Dunhill Links Championship, The British Masters and the Valderrama Masters.
Blairgowrie junior convener Neil Wilkie said: “Richie was incredibly generous with his time, spending several hours with our junior section.
“It is fantastic that the team from Carbon are being so supportive.
“Not only was Richie chatting to the boys and girls and demonstrating how to hit specific shot shapes but he also made time for one-to one coaching with every single one of them.
“Richie provided lots of encouragement, saying he was amazed at the quality of golf on show and that his swing didn’t look half as good as some of those that were on display from our juniors at an equivalent age.
“Personal encouragement like this from a highly respected multi-event winning European Tour Professional, former US Amateur Champion and Walker Cup player provides an incredible amount of self-belief that our juniors can achieve everything they wish for from the game of golf, if they adopt a similar mindset.”
