Hayley putts Parley on the map
Golfer Hayley Davis has hit the highpoint of her career so far by qualifying for the 2020 European Ladies European Tour – after training at Parley Golf Centre.
The 26-year-old from St Leonards in Dorset, who represents Ferndown Golf Club, has been under the tutelage of Parley pro Peter Thompson since January.
His computerised golf studio opposite Bournemouth Airport at Parley Golf Centre is where Hayley’s game has been turned around.
And she is not Peter’s first success; he has previously trained winners of the Australian, Portugese and Kenyan Open championships as well as guiding Gary Wolstenholme to become England’s best amateur.
Hayley has benefited from Peter’s philosophy which is that the stance is 75% of the shot and the two stages of back swing count for another 20%.
The method has proved a major hit with Hayley who is now preparing to take on the best European women golfers.
She said: “Peter’s guidance has been invaluable in me improving enough to qualify.
“I have been a member of Ferndown Golf Club since 2003 and have fantastic support there from the members.
“Parley has all the training facilities a golfer requires and working with Peter since January is helping me fulfil my potential.
“I will now be working hard at Parley to give myself the best chance of doing well on the tour.”
Peter said: “Nine months after starting with me Hayley won the Order of Merit on the Ladies European Access Tour – way above the second placed golfer.
“The facilities atParley are excellent with great range mats to play off and the TopTracer range technology.
“The short game practice area is the best for many miles around with a 1,000 square yard putting green built to USPGA specifications, a dedicated green with three sand bunkers and a further two greens for playing wedges into.
“Hayley believes these short game facilities have really benefited her game and she very much deserved to qualify due to her talent but also her desire to improve her game.”
