COACHING

COACHING

The Blues Squad receive coaching on a weekly basis during the first two terms of the academic year from Sam Truman. Sam is a fully qualified PGA Professional having recently completed the AGMS degree programme at the University of Birmingham. We are extremely fortunate to be able to work with Sam - he is a highly qualified coach and is also a county academy coach for Surrey Golf, working with the Surrey Girls elite and development squads and U12's boys development squad. He has lots of experience working in team-based golf environments, and has been a great fit for Oxford University Golf Club. Sam has access to Trackman and Sam Putt Lab, which allow the team to gain objective feedback on how their games are progressing.

training

Every Wednesday afternoon, the team makes the short trip to The Oxford Golf Centre, a well equipped driving range facility located near to the centre of Oxford. Our coach, Sam, casts an eye over us whilst we use the time to work on our games. 

Over the course of these sessions, each player will have the opportunity to spend some time by themselves working on areas of their game that they feel they need to focus on, and will also be able to have some 1 to 1 time with Sam so that he can assess how best each player can make the most of their practice time between fixtures. Each player will also complete a Trackman skills test during the session so that they can benchmark and measure their own progress from session to session. These sessions aim to provide a supportive but also competitive environment for players to push each other and improve their games.
