Former tour player Samantha Head has joined iPlayGolfUK to boost the indoor golf facility’s coaching and custom-fitting team. A familiar face on the Ladies European Tour for twenty years, the 42-year old Italian Open and South African Open champion also played for three seasons on the Japanese LPGA Tour.
Head retired five years ago from tour life to start a family. She is seen frequently in golf magazines, is a Sky Sports golf pundit on TV, and currently contributes regular features and articles to Women & Golf magazine. She is the first female golf coach at iPlayGolfUK joining PGA professionals Greg Tilbury and Danny Poulter at the indoor golf experience, located close to Newport Pagnell.
The Bedford-based Tour star is looking forward to working in the technologically-advanced environment at iPlayGolfUK. “Simulators give you so much useable information, whether you’re playing for fun or getting serious about your game”, she said. “iPlayGolfUK is a fantastic place to play golf day or night, whatever the weather, and as one of the UK’s largest custom-fitting facilities offering almost all of the major brands, we have the ability to create your best-ever set of golf clubs right here.”
Simon Avery, General Manager of iPlayGolfUK said, “We’re becoming increasingly popular with families as an entertainment destination, whether they are golfers or not, and it was important for us to find the right woman to become the female face of iPlayGolfUK. With her fascinating tour golf experience, her coaching skills and her exceptionally friendly personality I am sure that Samantha is going to become a firm favourite with all of our customers”.
