This past November, at the 2019 MJT National Championship presented by TaylorMade & adidas Golf held at Reunion Resort in Florida, Maple Leaf Junior Tour member Alex Swinnerton showed off his skill in the bean bag toss competition and was the lucky winner of a golf camp at Sean Foley Performance golf academy in Orlando.
During his Spring Break, Alex made the trip from Saskatchewan to Orlando, Florida, to take part in a week-long high-performance training camp. Touching on all aspects of the game, including putting, short-game, full-swing, course management and golf fitness, Alex and some friends from Saskatchewan got a sneak peek of what it’s like to live and train at Sean Foley’s junior academy.
Alex said afterwards, “My time at Sean Foley Performance Academy was unbelievable. I was treated by each coach like I was right at home and I learnt so much during my week at the Academy. Whether it was training or playing golf, I didn’t feel like I missed a beat… Overall, this week was a lot of fun, but more importantly I learnt some key tools that will elevate my game to the next level. I’m excited to get the season started and I want to thank Sean Foley for the opportunity.”
“It was great to have the guys from Saskatchewan here,” said camp organizer, Chris Bennett. “We have more kids coming from Ontario and Alberta in the next few weeks, and we are all really excited to have more Canadians around.”
The academy is running Spring Break Camps now through to the end of May and is also taking applications for next year’s full-time program now. The full-time program combines a private academic school education with elite golf performance training.
