Nigel Edwards, the England Golf Performance Director, commented: “These awards recognise people who really do pull out all the stops to support the players and squads they work with. They offer encouragement, guidance and support during both the good and bad times and they play a huge role in our successes.”

The awards were presented at a gala dinner at the England Golf coaching conference at St George’s Park, attended by county, regional and national coaches and managers.
