At Leigh Golf Club we’re very lucky to have our own Professional Andrew Baguley (Baggers to his friends), who’s been with us for over 28 years.
We’re lucky because Andrew is one of a select band of club professionals who’s played in The PGA Cup for Team GB and Ireland against the USA on two occasions.
The PGA Cup is the equivalent of The Ryder Cup for club professionals, and Andrew was part of the 10-man team that won the competition in 2005 in County Kildare, Ireland.
Andrew is a former Captain of The Lancashire Professional Golfers’ Association is one of the most respected Pros in the North of England.
Andrews more recent achievements was him winning the 2015 Lancashire PGA Senior Championship. He has been part of the successful Dunham Forest Team and enjoys playing regularly in Pro Captain matches.
Most recently Andrew and Captain John Taylor finished 3rd in The 2017 National PGA SkyCaddie Pro Captain Challenge in Morocco.
Andrew believes that golf is unique because it allows players of all abilities to compete together and measure their own improvements in personal performance. With practice, dedication and some professional guidance these improvements can be significant.
Andrew provides golf lessons on an individual or group basis. He feels it’s important that you take enjoyment in your game, and through proper tuition can develop to your full potential or simply work on improving individual aspects of your game. He offers lesson vouchers to be used as the perfect gift for that someone special.
