Costanza Trussoni – PGA Fellow Professional and Performance Coach
HOUGHTON GOLF CLUB-HOUGHTON GOLF ACADEMY AND PERFORMANCE CENTRE
|What led you to becoming a PGA Professional?
|I have always played outdoor sports, mainly tennis, golf, and skiing. I chose golf as it appealed to me as being the more diverse, and definitely a never-ending discovery. I love working outdoors and feel privileged that my work environment is absorbed in Nature.|
|How long have you been in your current position?
|We built the Academy two years ago. I have a great assistant, PGA Professional Ricki Dembo and our doors at the Academy are open to everbody:) People really enjoy mixed lessons with me and Ricki. We learn from each other all the time and we create such nice interactions! I have been a PGA Fellow for the last 3 years and I have been in the coaching industry since 15 years.
|What does your job entail?
|It is mainly coaching and make people fall in love with golf. It is so nice to see a shift and such interest in women golf at present and I really hope we will get more girls into the game and that women golf will reach the heights of women tennis. That said the majority of my clients are business men:) I also do some work with Andy Ostle for SADB. My way to try and give back:)
|Do you have any environmental or sustainability goals that you have met and would like to share?
|I would say I care about the environment in every part of my life. Recycling for example. Oh yes sometimes I go to the Academy with my bike so I spare some car pollution! It is a little tough lol but worth the exercise!|
|Please give us a brief outline of the path you took to lead you to your current position||I love golf, I love people and I want to be the best possible coach for my students. This is why I invested in TrackMan, motor learning studies, and decided to ask Houghton to build a world class Academy (I was so scared at that time now that I think about it…paying rental, expenses, and all that it entails!).|
|Why do you feel that you would be a good candidate to win this award?
|I really do not know how to answer this:) I leave it to my colleagues to decide why I could be a good candidate!|
