PGA Master Professional Gary Alliss in Israel to Teach Israeli Golf Professionals
November 7, 2008PGA Cup captain and PGA Master professional Gary Alliss brought his special expertise to Israel under the auspices of the PGAs of Europe and the R & A.
Allis, a top European professional is no stranger to visiting countries that are trying to improve the sport of golf having recently visited Slovakia for the same purpose. Alliss came to Israel to assist Israeli professionals in their understanding of the game and to improve their coaching skills. A new world-class course is opening at Caesarea and golf is expected to grow rapidly in popularity.
Israel had previously focused its golf attention almost exclusively on the United States. Alliss is proud that he was able to demonstrate to the Israelis just how much the European golf scene has to offer. Alliss and his team provided training and instruction that included rules, sport science and clinics for adults and juniors. He hopes that a new training program for Israeli professionals will be put in place and that it will be recognized by the European PGAs. Allis believes that there is great potential for the growth of golf in Israel.
