Junior golfers to attend camp in S’pore

Kathmandu, December 6

Two young Nepali golfers Subash Tamang and Shaswat Pradhan will be undergoing the Golfing Lab Camp from December 17-22 in Singapore.

The six-day camp, organised by The Golfing Lab in collaboration with ANK Academy, will be conducted by Director of Golf at ANK Chris Lee, renowned LPGA Tour Trainer Daisuke Saito, TPI Fitness Trainer Jeremy Brecheteau and former Singapore national team coach Goh Kun Yang.

Upon the request of Nepal Golf Association, The Golfing Lab has waived the camp cost of $2,000 for Tamang, while Pradhan will be taking part in the camp on his own expenses. Another junior golfer, Binod Tamang had also received 100 per cent scholarship for the camp but he could not make it.

“The participants can train and interact with other junior golfers of the region during the camp. We trust this will give them an opportunity to participate in a career changing opportunity for them as this is the first time our camp has ever offered such waivers,” said Francis Tan, Director at TGL. The participants will receive technical, fitness and mental training plus conditioning and techniques which they can take home to continue improving their own individual game.

The two junior golfers will be leaving for Singapore on Friday accompanied by Sanjeev Pradhan, father of Shaswat. The players will also take part in the one-day mini tournament on December 20. Top two players of the tournament will get an opportunity to attend a six-day training at ANK Australia.

NGA President Tashi Ghale thanked The Golf Lab Director Francis Tan and Big Fish Golf owner Eric Chong for arranging the opportunity for Nepali junior golfers. “It would not have been possible to send Nepali golfers to the camp without their help and support,” Ghale said.
