Train2Trust Practice Sessions and Bootcamps break all the rules when it comes to how to practice effectively. Boring, rote, non context-specific training is largely a waste of time – and of little use when it comes to dealing successfully with the challenges that arise during an actual round of golf. Designed specifically to help you learn how to perform under pressure on the golf course, Train2Trust Practice Sessions and Bootcamps will put a smile on your face - and ice in your veins. An ‘average’ round of golf will never look the same again…
