Hi, my name is Alex Band I am a PGA Assistant Professional based at Worcester Golf & Country Club. I am currently in my third and final year at Birmingham University studying towards a PGA foundation degree. I have been based at Worcester Golf and Country Club for the past ten years, first as a member and then as part of the professional team. I was honoured to be the clubs Junior Captain in 2017 and also represented Worcestershire County Boys team. I am proud to tell you that I was a key member of the team that won the West Midland Boys League in 2017, the biggest title Worcestershire had won in over twenty-five years. One of my key roles as Assistant PGA Professional at Worcester Golf & Country Club is to increase junior participation and grow the junior section.

I have a strong belief that it is hugely beneficial for young people to participate in golf. It encourages a healthy active lifestyle and will help children to develop skills such as hand-eye coordination and self-discipline. Golf has many added benefits that other sports do not have, such as improving social skills, increasing independence and I have made lifelong friendships. My personal experience playing golf as a young person was very memorable and a choice I am glad I made.  

As a coach I believe that juniors should become accomplished short game players first before worrying about the driver. All juniors are strong enough and capable to move the club in short, controlled movements but they can sometimes struggle to make a full swing due to strength or simply the weight of clubs. Therefore it is key to make sure the equipment is the correct size and weight. I have access to various clubs that can be borrowed or purchase.
