Sinclair Award - Zachery MarshOver 500 PGA coaches are at the heart of Golf Foundation projects, so nominations for the Sinclair Award for leading professional are always competitive.
Zachery Marsh, of Tonbridge Golf Centre in Kent, is the winner (receiving an ETIQUS golfer’s watch kindly donated by Gary Butler). Zachery has a child-centred approach and enjoys teaching Skills for Life. He has worked in 15 schools and introduced over 1,500 youngsters to the sport in the last year. His ability to make the game fun while developing confidence has resonated with many schools.
In his nomination, many wrote on his behalf; Academy director Mark Janes said: “He’s just what the game of golf needs at this present time, someone who breaks down the barriers and gets children thinking this game is cool.”
Zachery has embraced new ideas like Girls Golf Rocks and sits on the HSBC Golf Roots Coaches Network.
