Scottish Golf Performance Programme

Scottish Golf Performance Programme 

Our Performance Programme is designed to add value and support to the work the player is doing with their personal coach. It is not about teaching a player how to improve their swing – their coach already does that – it is about developing potential and maximising performance.

The programme will also provide appropriate competitive opportunities to support the player’s stage of development and help them to build on their experiences to aide their progression to the next level.

Access To Open Champions

We are delighted that Paul Lawrie and Catriona Matthew have joined the Scottish Golf Performance Programme. They are actively involved in the delivery of the programme, so everyone will benefit from their experience.

Working alongside Paul and Catriona will be performance coaches Spencer Henderson and Stuart Clayton, sportscotland Institute of Sport practitioners and other performance staff. This team will work with the players and their current support teams to create an environment to optimise the player’s development.

The Scottish Golf Performance Programme is all about helping players work towards goals, to reach their future potential, represent Scotland internationally and to win tournaments. Find out more by downloading the full details below.
