Heather MacRae, Ladies European Tour player and winner of this year’s Woman’s PGA Championship, talks to followgolf.scot about her golf and the reasons behind her move to Portugal.
An opportunity came up in Portugal at a beautiful 5* resort in the western algarve. The golf academy had been ignored for some time but they have football and tennis academy that attracts top athletes including premiership football teams and national football teams including Portugal, Brazil and the Netherlands so our ( me and my partner, Steve Bainbridge) project is to get the golf up to a similar standard.
4. Who has helped you this year?
Steve has been a huge help this year with my own golf, but perhaps more importantly as developing myself as a coach. He has worked on tour for many years and his knowledge and experience of teaching golf swing and biomechanics is much greater than mine so it is great to learn from him and get his input and feedback. I think between us with my playing background and his coaching background we have a lot to offer out here and we are excited to see where it goes.
