Novice golfer takes first steps to be a professional

Josh Daniels, a Grade 7 student at Reddam House, won an incredible two week trip to Spain earlier this year. Josh entered and won the annual Summer Camps video competition, securing a spot for himself at the prestigious Sotogrande ACES Golf Camp in Spain. This video competition is organised every year by the Inspired Education Group, which Reddam House is a part of. Josh, who has been awarded his Western Province colours for golf, impressed the international judging panel with his golf skills and dedication to the sport.

Josh visited Spain during the July school holiday and had the privilege of playing some of the best golf courses in the world. The first day of camp included a visit to the Andalucía Masters that was played at the famous Valderrama Golf Course in Sotogrande. Here, Josh met South African, Christiaan Bezuidenhout, who went on to win the Andalucía Masters tournament. Spain’s Sergio García and Jon Rahm also played in that tournament.

Josh had access to world class coaches during his time in Spain. The student athletes go through a “body swing link” test to assess their physical condition, strengths and weaknesses which is used as a basis for designing a personalised physical and technical programme aimed at providing continued improvement to achieve success. Josh played very well when out on the course and had the best round of 78 on the final day of his tournament that was played at the La Reserva Club.

All the summer campers had loads of fun on excursion days. Some of the activities included river rafting, water park and adventure park visits. Josh made lots of friends and shared a room with a fellow golfer, Sergio from Spain. This was an amazing and memorable experience for Josh who hopes one day to be a professional golfer.
