    Apprenticeships Cornwall

    Scott Drummond, former PGA golf champion and Skills Group ambassador, reflects on this year’s season.

My game felt more comfortable than ever before, with consistent ball striking and plenty of scoring opportunities in every round. The lows? My results at the main events of the year – the PGA Championship, The Open Qualifying and European Tour Qualifying School.
