Zoe to receive US Kids Master Coach award
For the third successive year, Zoe is to receive the prestigious US Kids Top 50 Coach award.
Each year US Kids Golf recognises 50 exceptional coaches who are committed to developing junior golf in their communities. Zoe first received this award in 2017 and again last year in 2018. A very select group of coaches have managed to win the award three times becoming a US Kids Master Coach, the highest accolade given to Junior Golf Coaches.
This year of the 50 coaches to receive the top 50 award, only 12 have won it for a third time, and this year only five coaches receiving this top award are from outside USA. Zoe becomes the sixth Professional outside USA to receive the Master Coach award and is the first recipient from GB & Ireland. She joins an elite group of 182 Master coaches.
Zoe, who is currently in Florida, officiating at the US Kids Holiday Classic in West Palm Beach, will receive the award from Dan Van Horn, President and Founder of U.S. Kids Golf, at the annual PGA Show in Orlando, Florida at the end of January.
Zoe has promoted US Kids Golf by further developing her US Kids teaching programme at Lurgan’s Golf Academy, growing the US Kids North of Ireland Local Tour which has now visited 15 Golf Courses and boasts over 600 players. Zoe also acts as a Tournament Director at larger International US KIds events including The US Kids European Championships in Gullane, The US Kids World Championships at Pinehurst and The US Kids Venice Open.
For 2020, Zoe has published details of the US Kids North of Ireland Spring Tour and there will also be a Fall Tour in September. Zoe also hopes to reveal plans for the 2020 US Kids Irish open.
