SERAS getting in to the swing of things

BERMAGUI’S Jackson Hearne, Pambula’s Lincoln Warne and Tura Beach’s Casey Cook have been busily working through a golf program. 

The South East Regional Academy of Sport (SERAS) golf program is in full swing after completing its second training camp on the weekend.  

In December the nine scholarship holders were put through a physical movement screenings by Golf NSW physiotherapist, Matt Green, at the first training camp held at the Gold Creek Country Club in the ACT. 

The movement screening designed by Jack Newton Junior Golf (JNJG) allows the athletes to be prescribed individual strength and conditioning programs to improve the physical aspect of their game. 

The remainder of the camp was devoted to skill development run by the SERAS coach and PGA professional Chris Hearn from the Bermagui Country Club. 

Hearn was assisted by Khan Pullen, the manager of player development with JNJG. 

Pullen used motion analysis software to evaluate each player’s swing and identified areas for improvement. 

The second training camp was held on the weekend at the Bermagui Country Club. 

At this camp the athletes worked with performance specialist Courtney Porter on their strength and conditioning, as well as skill development under the tutelage of Hearn. 

A final training camp will be held in April to follow-up on programs delivered in the proceeding camps.
