Some LPGA players like Lydia Ko and Suzann Pettersen pay to have their golf coach/ instructor around with them at tournaments. Depending on the coach/ instructor, one or more of his students will share the cost of having them at the event to provide on-the-course instruction.
Lydia who is coached by David Leadbetter had him at the ANA Inspiration during practice rounds and the pro-am. He was on the driving range with her and he walked inside the ropes at pro-am. Luckily for Lydia’s pro-am partners, David provided private advice to them.
David is really pleased with his students who include Lydia Ko, Danielle Kang, Michelle Wie, Adam Scott and many others.
