Women and Girls’ Golf Week: WPGA Chairman Tracey Loveys is giving lessons at the Ricoh Women’s British Open today to encourage new players. Here is her story.

first_img5 Aug 2018 Women and Girls’ Golf Week: WPGA Chairman Tracey Loveys is giving lessons at the Ricoh Women’s British Open today to encourage new players. Here is her story. WPGA Chairman Tracey Loveys is one of the women professionals offering free lessons today in the swingzone at the Ricoh Women’s British Open. Tracey, from Bigbury Golf Club, tells how she encourages women and girls to get into golf.What’s your golfing background?I started to learn how to play at the age of 13. My father was a keen golfer and he encouraged me to ‘have a go’, even though my initial thoughts were that ladies didn’t play golf!How long have you been a PGA pro?I turned professional in 1992How often do you work with women and girls?Almost on a daily basis, more so with women rather than girls as our location doesn’t lend itself to many juniors as we off the beaten track! However, our current junior captain is a girl.I run group coaching sessions for our ladies’ section at the start of the year to help brush off some winter rustiness and we also have a group of higher handicap ladies that ‘roll up’ once a week and I organise a few group sessions specifically for them too throughout the year.How do you encourage them to play golf?I have a Get into Golf banner at the golf club main entrance which attracts quite a few people. I also advertise these sessions on my village’s Facebook page. This too has proved successful.The number of ladies taking up these lessons outweighs the gent beginner by about 8:2. I do believe that the fact I am a female pro has a big influence on this figure. They are learning together, they then go on to form lifelong friendships, their golf grows together and then, hopefully, join our club and become part of a ‘bigger family’.How supportive is your club?I have been at Bigbury for 10years now and the club have always been very supportive. It is renowned as being one of the friendliest clubs in the area.Your star pupil … not necessarily your best player?Two years ago at my club I held a ‘bring a non-golfing friend along’ session for the lady members. This was aimed at inviting a friend along to walk the back seven holes with the golfing member and to do the putting. The idea was to give them a taster for the game, taking in the stunning views from our course and to sample the warm welcome within the clubhouse afterwards.From this initiative I got a few ladies to make up a beginners group. One lady in particular stood out. She is now a full playing member of the ladies’ section, representing them in matches and is now playing off a handicap of 24. Not bad in under two years!What’s your advice for women and girls interested in getting started?Don’t be scared! Have a go! Golf is a game for life. So many new friendships are made and it can take you to courses all over the world.Why do you want to work at the RicohWBO?It’s a great opportunity to meet people and give them a few hints and tips to help grow their enjoyment of the game. They are there to watch the best players in the world and to be inspired.I haven’t been involved in the Ricoh WBO before but I was involved in providing tuition at the ISPS Handa Classic at The Buckinghamshire a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, hence my application to get involved in the biggest event in the calendar!Personal golfing goals?As a player? I still feel that I am able to be competitive and like to think I can give the ‘younger ones’ a run for their money! Deep down inside I know there’s another WPGA Club Pro’s title in me and, as long as my body lets me, I will keep trying!As a coach? To continue to help golfers reach their personal goals and to introduce as many people as possible to our wonderful game.Inspired by Tracey to Get into Golf?

Boston preps for possible World Series celebration

The Red Sox won 3-1 to take a 3-2 lead in the series. (AP Photo/Matt Slocum) by Jay LindsayAssociated Press WriterBOSTON (AP) — Sports championships aren’t rare in Boston anymore, and security officials are drawing on what went right — and wrong — during recent victory celebrations as the Red Sox look to claim another title.The Red Sox return to Fenway Park on Wednesday needing one win in the next two games against the St. Louis Cardinals to win their third World Series since 2004. Meanwhile, police are also dealing with a visit by President Obama, who’s stopping in town hours earlier Wednesday to discuss his health care reform.City officials on Tuesday said they’re confident both events will go off smoothly. But they’re tightening parking restrictions, increasing police presence and asking the public to help unclog streets and keep any Red Sox victory celebrations safe.“We’ve had a lot of great success. … We’ve had some challenges and some tragedies,” said Boston Police Superintendent-in-chief Daniel Linsky. “We’re hoping that fans have grown and got accustomed to the championships, and we’re hoping that they realize that there’s no reason to destroy property to celebrate a sports victory.”The Red Sox’s 2004 title was its first since 1918. But there have been plenty of reasons to celebrate Boston sports success since. The Sox won again in 2007, while the Patriots (2005), Celtics (2008) and Bruins (2011) have also won championships.The postgame street partying after the wins has been generally been uneventful, but not always. In 2004, a 21-year-old college student was killed by a pepper pellet fired by Boston police during crowd control efforts following the Red Sox win in the American League Championship Series.In 2008, a 22-year-old man stopped breathing and later died after police took him into custody during street celebrations of the Celtics title.Linsky said some changes since aim to take down the crowd’s temperature. For instance, officers will be mixing in the crowd wearing regular uniforms, not riot gear.“We used to put our hard gear on to kind of let people know we’re ready for trouble,” he said. “But we’ve found if we do that, people come looking for trouble.”Police also now limit crowds near the park, he said. After the seventh inning, people won’t be allowed into Fenway or the surrounding streets, and if people already there decide to leave, they can’t come back.“Instead of having a crowd of 800,000 in one area, we’ve got eight smaller crowds of 50,000 or so in different areas, and we’re able to manage this better,” Linsky said.The April bombings at the Boston Marathon have police deploying extra bomb sniffing dogs to the Fenway area, as well as more undercover officers and officers trained to spot suspicious behavior, said Police Commissioner Ed Davis.“A lot of the stuff will be transparent, you won’t be able to see it,” he said.Parking restrictions aim to thin out of the number of cars on streets around Fenway starting at 4 p.m., and officials warned people parking in local lots that they’ll be stuck there for a while after the game.“We just ask everyone that comes to use public transportation,” said Mayor Tom Menino.The mayor said he’ll be asking businesses in downtown Boston to relieve congestion by letting workers go home by 4 p.m. City staff has asked local bar owners to pull outside displays by the fifth inning and cover windows so crowds don’t gather outside to watch their TVs.Menino said President Obama is planning to be out of Boston about an hour or so before the first pitch, and city officials have been in touch with the White House to try to ensure everything runs cleanly. All told, he said, a good plan is in place.“The city is ready,” Menino said.last_img read more
