Welcome to the new site. Anna and I are back from America and living in Kyiv again. We are armed with new knowledge, new certifications, and ready to help grow the game of golf in Ukraine. We will be sharing golf drills, fitness videos and course reviews from around the region.
Since my last post under the VegasGolf byline, I became the Director of Golf at Kenmont/ Kenwood camp in Kent, CT, and worked all summer with Anna as my assistant instructor. I also completed my Level 2 Golf Certification by the Titleist Performance Institute.
I’ve added a low draw to the old high fade I used to hit, scored my first hole in one and my first subpar round on a championship course (69). I got my SNGA Handicap down to 2, and I look forward to playing competitively around Europe.
Anna has become a very powerful golfer. In our last round before we left America, she reached the par 5 18th hole with a driver and a 9 Iron. She two putted from 4 feet for birdie, missing a chance for her second eagle. (She got her first hole in one last April) Not bad for a player with less than two years of golfing experience. She also met Bill Murray at the AT&T Pro Am at Pebble Beach. The comedy legend and golf addict stopped by to compliment her on her trousers near the second fairway.
During our stay in America, we played a lot of golf all over the country, highlights included at Orange Tree in Scottsdale, Az, Bayonet in Monterey, Ca, Pasadera CC in Carmel, Ca, Southern Highlands CC in Vegas, Kenmont Links in Kent, Ct, and Timber Creek in Roseville, Ca.
We also attended PGA Tournaments at TPC Summerlin and Pebble Beach. It was great time for us to be golfers in America, but now we’re back in Kyiv and excited to start bringing you great golf instruction, fitness, course reviews and travel tips.
Thanks for reading!
