Many thanks to Paul Wardell and Euan Bowden who enthusiastically helped Ladies of ELLCGA with various golf skills at the Loretto Golf Academy on the 26th March. Drills for chipping, pitching, bunker and putting were set out and all the ladies came away with a lot to work on for their personal performance.

Paul and Euan are Professionals that teach in East Lothian and are known to many of the ladies.
