In the swing of things

Docklands’ golfers had the opportunity to perfect their golf swings at the World Trade Centre last month.

Professional golf coaches Denis McDade and Steven Bann, where on hand at the WTC atrium, offering free one-on-one golf lessons.  

Between them, the pair has coached some of the world’s best golfers, including Marc Leishman, Stuart Appleby and KJ Choi.

The golf lessons, held on October 23, 24, 30 and 31, took place in the lead up the Australian Masters and World Cup in Melbourne this month, which both Mr McDade and Mr Bann will coach at.

WTC general manager Rob Collins said: “We are always looking for new and exciting ways to activate the unique space we have at the WTC.”

A large net and golf green were set up in the atrium along with recording equipment, allowing the coaches to replay participant’s golf swings on a large plasma screen and talk them through elements of their swing.

According to Mr McDade, the most common mistake novice golfers make is to abide by golfing myths such as keeping your head down and left arm straight, which inhabit what should be a free-flowing movement.
