Surrey, B.C.’s Adam Svensson is currently ranked number 2 in Golf Canada’s ranking of top amateur golfers, is a member of Golf Canada’s National Team and put together an impressive and consistent championship record in 2014. 
Svensson, who was also recently named as a nominee for the Sport BC Male Athlete of the Year Award, is one of coach Rob Houlding’s star pupils at Houlding’s teaching facility out in Surrey. 
Recently in a tune-up session at Houlding’s Golf Academy the two put together a recording of how Svensson could hit either a fade or a draw from virtually the same set up, changing only his alignment by a ball width or so.

Coquitlam native Bob McDonald has a plan to be ready for the beginning of his spring golf league at Burnaby Mountain Golf Course.
He’s signed up for a 10-lesson golf improvement plan at GolfTEC’s Vancouver location and working with his head teaching professional Norman Baufeld, McDonald has set up reasonable and achievable goals.
“I’m slicing the ball too much and I’m losing too much distance,” said the young-at-heart golfer who’s turning 80 very soon.
“I play about 20 to 25 rounds a year and I’m part of the senior’s men’s club at Burnaby Mountain and I want to continue to get better.”

We all marvel at the athletic ability demonstrated by young people these days but there are still some examples that really have you shaking your head in either admiration or disbelief. Or both.

Take for instance young Michelle Liu, the 2014 Little Masters Champion and a student being taught by Rob Houlding. 

Houlding, who runs the Rob Houlding Golf Academy, a state-of-the-art indoor facility in Surrey and a beautiful outdoor facility in Delta, has been teaching Michelle privately for about 10 months now.
