International Training Camp – May 2012
he week of May 14th seen the completion of another successful international training camp, carried out at The Mines Resort & Golf Club at Impact Elite Golf Academy. This is now the third camp I’ve held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia which seen students travel from various parts of Indonesia, Philippines, Australia, Sweden as well as some local students from Malaysia.

The focus of these camps are to not only develop the areas of technique, but also getting the players to develop better practice habits, through regular skill testing as well an emphasis on target oriented training. Just as important is educating the students on planning a practice program and being able to work that plan, so they can continue on the improvement process long after they leave.

The week began with a TPI physical screening, 8 hole short game test and an 18 hole on-course assessment. Throughout the week talks were given in the areas of putting, chipping, pitching and bunker play and students were also exposed to the all important techniques of AimPoint Green Reading. Students were also able to experience the world-class facility and golf course at The Mines Resort & Golf Club playing 9 holes every second day. This week we were fortunate enough to have Andrea Furst who’s based in Singapore to deliver techniques to the group on the all important aspects of the mental game. The information was very well received and the students certainly got a lot out of the session.

One of the highlights of the week was getting the students involved in a 9 hole chipping and putting competition, where a prize purse was awarded to the eventual winner Zaki Auliyan. Zaki traveled down from Medan, Indonesia to attend and has now been selected in the top 3 players to represent his country in international competition. “It was great to see how the students changed focus when they’re was a something on the line, and gave them a great feel for competing when practicing” – Steven Giuliano

The camp ended with students receiving a practice program tailored to their skills test results and the observations made during the on-course session. Students also received video wrap-ups on various drills and exercises worked on throughout the week.  The format continues to grow in popularity, due to the success and demand of these week-long camps they are now being held once a month with some exciting new editions to the upcoming events.

I can’t be happier about the decision of sending Zaki to your camp. I am very selective in researching golf camp that fits the need for improving the quality of my son’s golf game. I want to express that I am satisfied with what was obtained during the camp program. Consultation and guidance we got from the coach before and after the camp makes this very effective. This is a great international experience for Zaki. Congratulations for the outstanding job. All the best!
