Success in School... Success in Life

DCGS Golf Performance Programme graduate Eric Byrne is nearing the end of his first year of his PGA Professional Foundation Degree at Mullingar Golf Club under the watchful eye of James Quinlaven.  James featured in the March edition of The Irish Golfer which detailed the impressive progress he has made at Mullingar since taking over and will no doubt be a great platform for Eric to build from.

Eric spent a year with the DCGS honing his game and preparing for the next step in his golfing career and made the most of the opportunity, “the Darren Clarke Golf School helped me to prepare myself for a career in golf and also helped me to represent myself to the best of my ability.”

The DCGS would like to wish Eric every success in his PGA studies and the upcoming golfing season.  See you on the fairways Eric!
