Kota Kinabalu: Sabah Sukma golfers are assisted by the latest technology as they resumed their training a week ago at Sabah Golf and Country Club in preparation for the biennial games in Johor next year.

Sabah Golf Association (SGA) Junior Development Chairperson Julia Huang in a statement released on Thursday disclosed the use of various golfing software in their training session led by State coach Fraser Pook.

“We are working with State coach Fraser Pook  and other coaches  on the use of technology in the training and preparation of our Sukma Squad, such as Trackman – a golf radar; Capto – a putting analysis system software; Superspeed – a golf swing speed training programme, which also includes more personalised training,” she said.

She added the squad’s performances are also monitored by Upgame which is the leading data intelligence and practice tracking platform for golfers.

“The tracking and analysis of the individual performances from now onwards will help ease the task of SGA Selection Committee chaired by Mr Ranjeet Singh in selecting our final team of four boys and three girls based on merit and consistency of performance.”

At the moment the shortlisted players are Timothy Loi, Casper Loh, Christopher James, Derrick Kong, Mohd Zaeem Jafri, Neil Bainon, Sharie Tambakau, Iyoun Chew, Jacqueline Nickels, Nabilah Alifuddin and Valerie Langkab.

She revealed that SGA also have plan for the trainees to participate in various outings and tournaments.

“This will enable them to acquire practical skill in course planning and game strategy on personal and team basis.

“Once the team is selected, a training camp at Forest City in Johor will also be organised as the final stage of training and preparation for the team. We are confident that our Sabah Sukma team will be able to bring glory to the State.”

Julia also stressed that their training are carried out in strict compliance with the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and guidelines given by Malaysia Golf Association (MGA).

“The team’s health and safety are our top priority and we would also like to thank not only the coaches, but also the parents of our trainees for their tireless support for their children in the pursuit of excellence.”
