Scottsdale, Arizona, United States: Troon has announced a partnership with The G2 Girls Golf Academy, a unique golf training system developed specifically for female junior golfers.
G2 will deliver the 15-week, girls-only training model at select Troon-managed facilities across the United States, including the first at Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida beginning in January.
Based in Bluffton, South Carolina, G2 has trained female junior golfers of all skill levels using scientific-based instruction designed to remove barriers of traditional instruction in a collaborative group environment and to encourage girls to reach their full potential in golf and in life.
G2 students receive world-class training in golf, mental training, physical fitness, nutrition, leadership and college placement. Training includes benchmarking and development in ‘Five Levels of Competency’, led by a certified teaching professional. Students advance through each level by completing tasks and skill-level evaluations – all tracked and charted in the student-specific mobile App.
“We are excited to partner with Troon and expand our G2 training programmes at Troon-managed facilities across the country,” said Ray Travaglione, Founder and CEO, The G2 Academy.
“The best opportunity for female athletes to gain college scholarships is through golf. The G2 training programme provides a roadmap for getting recruited to play college golf, including a comprehensive developmental plan and opportunities to build golf resumes,” he added.
The G2 Academy is open to female junior golfers aged 11 to 18, from entry level to advanced player. G2’s girls-only programme is based on science and backed by research which provides an atmosphere for learning that is focused and minimises distractions so expectations become achievable while having fun and learning to play golf.
“Growing the game and providing opportunities to advance in the sport are key tenets at Troon,” said Bruce Glasco, Chief Operating Officer, Troon, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation. “The G2 Golf Academy model is one that provides female junior golfers a chance to not only advance in the game, but also grow their self-confidence,” he added.
