An impressive playing year for TGGA’s Team Elite players

Three-Generation Golf Academy’s Team Elite player, Chayutpol 'Smart' Kittirattanpaiboon, took home the first place trophy (boy’s B division) in the TGA-CAT Junior Golf Ranking (Northern Thailand) held at the challenging Chiang Rai Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed Santiburi Country Club.

Shooting an impressive 76 on the first day awarded Smart the lead advantage on the second day of the tournament. Waking to an injured left hand finger that left him holding the club 'like an Englishman sipping a cup of tea' Smart says, along with a bleeding nose on hole number 12 added some unexpected challenges to Smart’s day on this 6853 yard course. Holding it together, but grappling with a string of bogeys on holes 13-17, Smart managed his round well to finish with a par and impressive score of 79.

Smart’s win at this final 6th event of the 2010-11 TGA-CAT Junior Ranking’s qualified him to represent northern Thailand Junior TGA at both the TGA-CAT Junior Golf Championship 2011 (Asia Pacific), 27-30 March at Royal Hill, Nakorn Nayok and the TGA-CAT Junior Golf Championship 2011 (Junior World), 5-8 May at Blue Sapphire, Kanchanaburi. Smart’s entry fee to both events has also been waived for his win.

More good news for TGGA Team Elite... on March 5-6 competing at the Thai Junior Guardian Golf Association’s (TJGGA) Optimist qualifier in Chonburi, both Smart (under 15) and Es (over 15) have qualified for the final match '2011 Optimist International Junior Golf Championship Qualifying Tournament Thailand' on 4-7 April, Pattana, Chonburi.

Winners of this final qualification will receive an all-expense paid trip to play in the final Optimist International Junior Golf Championships in the USA this summer.

Golf lessons in Chiang Mai - Family-style

It’s certainly nice to have a fabulous vacation destination like Chiang Mai in northern Thailand for families searching for a holiday destination that caters for a wide range of interests. Traveling from Singapore, three generations of the Koh family were attracted to the full range of sport and leisure presented at Three-Generations Community for Learning which suited both young and old alike.

Golf was the highlight for father and son team, who participated in a week of golf lessons at the Three-Generation Golf Academy. Director of Golf, Spike Collier, trained each morning with young golfer, Nathen, developing increased precision in his golf swing, while father, Darren, focused on the knowledge of the swing fundamentals. It was their desire to be able to enjoy the sport together as a family event. Grandfather, Mr Koh took a more leisurely path and enjoyed several days of golf with his family at many of Chiang Mai’s Championship golf courses. For the ladies and other siblings, tennis instruction, shopping and other sightseeing activities combined to make this a holiday that all members enjoyed.

Precision instruction is the key to a successful golf lesson experience and that’s what you will find at Three-Generation Golf Academy.

TGGA Team Trophy Awards Ceremony

TGGA Team Elite players Chayutpol (Smart) Kittirattanapaiboon and Tapat (Es) (Es) Wittayakom are awarded their recently won trophies from the Pro-Am PTT Senior Golf Tournament held on December 1, 2010.

Due to the lateness of the awards ceremony at the event they missed receiving their trophies for their 1st place finish in both the Pro-Am Team event and Es for his 1st place Amateur win.

In front of teachers, staff and fellow students, Pro Spike presented the awards at the PTIS’s final Senior School assembly before the term break. Pro-Am team members, Rod Driscoll and David Buck, were also on hand to receive their awards. This is TGGA’s first team trophy to be placed in the school’s trophy case.

Team Elite players, Es and Smart, were also honored to meet Chiang Mai’s new governor, M.L. Panadda Diskul, a special guest speaker at today’s PTIS’s Senior School Assembly.

Visiting Malaysian junior golfer completes TGGA training

15 year old, 9 handicap junior golfer, Leonard Yogandra, recently traveled to Chiang Mai and the TGGA during his Malaysian school holidays for some intensive training. Residing on-site at the PTIS International School's Boarding facility during his stay allowed Leonard to travel independently to his lessons while making new friends amongst fellow boarders and Tennis Academy roommates from India and Pakistan. Being able to join in boarding activities such as impromptu games of football, watching a movie, a trip into the city or riding a bicycle around the campus provided light entertainment in the evenings.

Leonard was up early everyday and seen hitting balls at the driving range before his morning training with Director of Golf, Spike Collier. Leonard took full advantage of his training time in Thailand. With a mid-day break for lunch at the campus cafeteria and a couple hours of relaxation, Leonard returned once again in the afternoons to train with TGGA's Team Elite at the Academy and nearby Summit Green Valley Golf Club. During his stay, TGGA was able to help organize a game of golf during his weekend free time with Team Elite players and entry into a local two-day junior golf competition sponsored by Northern Thailand Junior Golf Club (NTJGC).

Select visiting players receive personalized lessons to meet their criteria, unlimited practice time, secondary training with the Team Elite and the ability to play in local competition that coincide with their visit for one very reasonable fee. Now that the PTIS International School's boarding facility is open to visiting athletes, a fully-supervised program is available to talented young players in the Asia-Pacific region.

Leonard was most interested in improving his skills for the competitive-golf arena, a central focus of the TGGA's own Team Elite, but certainly not the only one. "Basically, we encourage all our students to define their own goals. We then customize a plan to help them reach those goals through skill development and video analysis. Some of our visiting students want to be better competitors in their home country; some want to secure college scholarships; some want to play professional golf; and some simply want to play better golf on a recreational level. Whatever it may be, we’re here to make it happen." says Spike.

When asked what he liked most about his stay, Leonard stated "the overall environment and calm setting" was a highlight as well as the "effective instruction" he received "by the best coach ever". With his "wish to come here next year" we hope to see Leonard again soon with improved scores, swing refinements and of course his great attitude towards his learning potential.

Good results at the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships
24 July - 1 August 2010

Six hundred of golf’s top young players headed to the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Four of PGA National’s championship layouts were used for the event – the Champion, the Palmer, the Haig and the Squire courses. PGA National is home to the PGA TOUR’s Honda Classic and has been host to the PGA Seniors Championship, the 1987 PGA Championship and the 1983 Ryder Cup.

A number of other well-known professional golfers have participated in Optimist-sponsored championships, including Ernie Els, Nancy Lopez, Davis Love III, Michelle McGann, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.

The Optimist prides itself as an international event bringing together some of the world’s most talented young competitors, many of whom have the potential to become leading collegiate and professional golfers in the future. Qualifying players traveled from forty-three states, four Canadian provinces and thirty-three nations to take part in the event. Thailand was respectively represented by twenty boys and girls from four age divisions, including Nont Panayanggool, Grade 10, from Chiang Mai’s PTIS International School and a member of the Three Generation Golf Academy’s Team Elite.

Nont participated in the boys’ 14-15 division and along with 106 other boys from eighteen different countries took on the challenge of PGA’s 6,500 yard Champion course over three consecutive days. In his first International event, carrying his own bag under sweltering conditions, with lightning fast greens (11.5), Nont shot a very impressive 229 (76-75-78) finishing tied for 22nd place. "I am very proud of Nont and in his ability to play under pressure and representing himself, the TGGA and PTIS International School," says his coach, Spike.

The winning competitors in the boys’ 14-15 age division battled it out in a final playoff with Jake McBride of Hartville, Ohio (71-73-73 - 217) coming out the champion. Second place winner was American Evan Deroche of Key West, Florida (76-67-74 - 217) with third place going to Nontaphat Hattakanont of Bangkok, Thailand (72-72-73 - 217).

Summer Camp at Three Generation Golf Academy

Three weeks of fun-filled days and nights at the Three Generation Summer Camp have come to an end this week for a variety of students from around Thailand, Japan and Taiwan.

One of the many camp activities included 4 sessions a week learning basic golf skills at the Three Generation Golf Academy. Both boys and girls learned how to hold a golf club, correct golf posture along with learning the FUNdamentals of putting, chipping and full swing.

Pro Nah concluded her time with the campers by challenging them to a 'Putt for Kanom' contest and mini tournament. For the putting competition, students lined up and took aim to try and reach their ball to an assortment of goodies laying about the putting green. The student that hit or came closest to the target won the prize!

Golf Reflections:

At golf learning I like to play golf and swing (the club). I also like using the putter because I hit the candy and I get a candy! - Minnie, Bangkok

I like golf because when I hit a golf ball and it went very far, I feel I that I can do it! - Pak, Bangkok

I couldn’t golf (before) and I didn’t like golf, but I like (it) now! (It) is interesting. Thank you very much. - Kyoka, Japan

Nont qualifies for Optimist International Junior Golf Championship
Dateline: 24 April, 2010

The Three Generation Golf Academy is proud to announce that a member of its Team Elite, Nont Panayanggool, qualified to play in the Optimist International Junior Golf Championship. The tournament will take place on 22 - 27 July 2010 at the prestigious PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Gardens, Florida.

What makes this achievement so special is that Nont minimized his tournament play over this past year and dedicated himself to the task of making some refinements to his swing. The refinements were designed to enhance his abilities as a powerful hitter of the ball. Although frustrating for him at times during team practice he could always tap into one of his most powerful resources... his sense of humor. He constantly has the team and me laughing so hard we literally have to hit the ground.

Nont is a wonderful representative of what we have set out to achieve at Three Generation Golf Academy. At the age of fifteen Nont has developed a level of maturity that balances his passion for living every shot he makes on the golf course.

From the entire Team we all say CONGRATULATIONS, Buddy, and have loads of fun over there!

Stay tuned to find out how two more of our Team Elite players, Chayutpol Kittirattanapaiboon (Smart) and Tapat Wittayakom (Es), play in the Mercedes Trophy Qualifying event coming in May. Smart is currently ranked first and Es is ranked sixth in their age divisions. These guys can really turn it on when it comes to playing good golf. Enjoy every shot, guys, and have a great time!

Smart wins a second Mercedes Trophy event
Dateline: 8 February, 2010

January 2010 has been a victorious month for young Team Elite player, Smart, a Grade 8 student from the PTIS International School.

On 16-17 January, and for the second time, Smart won at the Mercedes Trophy Junior Golf Championships. This is a six-leg series, played at a variety of courses around Bangkok, of which Smart has now won the first and fourth events.

This is a special event because the player’s grades come into play for points in their standing. Smart’s application to his studies at school saw his name listed on the Honor Roll, again, which gives him twenty extra points for each event in which he plays. His best 18 Hole score was a 2 under par 70!!!

Two weeks later, Smart was champion yet again after an exciting playoff finish at the Srixon-Cleveland Junior Golf Tournament. The event was held on 30-31 January at the Inthanon Golf Club and sponsored by the Northern Thailand Junior Golf Club (NTJGC).

Smart has been studying at Three Generation Golf Academy for two years. After the first year of working together he lowered his handicap by 20 strokes which earned him a 50% scholarship to PTIS. Not only does he have great golfing skills, but Smart is an extremely well-rounded person with a great sense of humor and dedication to everything he does.

"He represents what I call being ‘in The Zone’," says Coach Spike. "I’m not talking about that elusive ‘mystical zone’ so often talked about and seen as ‘unconscious’ or ‘miraculous’. I’m talking of the ‘Real Zone’ where one participates fully in everyday life with eyes and heart wide open. It is where the management of time and energy coincide with awareness and desire."

Smart is developing personal power and precision levels through knowledge and management that produces long-lasting champions, whether it is in sport, school or life. Learning to ‘live in the zone’ at such an early age will give Smart an amazing advantage on whatever path he chooses.

"It is important to realize that his training coupled with the love and nurturing of his very fine parents is part of the formula of his success and I thank them both so much for entrusting his golfing development to our academy," says Spike.

Smart Wins "The Mercedes Trophy"
Dateline: 1 October 2009

Traveling south to Rayong’s Green Valley Golf Club, three players from Three Generation Golf Academy’s Team Elite made their debut appearance at the highly-acclaimed national junior golf competition known as "The MercedesTrophy".

Thirteen year old Chayutpol (Smart) Kittirattanapaiboon, was the surprise winner of the Class B2 division to beat over forty other players from around Thailand in his age group.

Returning competitors to this tournament took notice of Smart’s steady play throughout the two-day event where he held the lead on both days. All players between the ages of thirteen and eighteen were expected to play from the back tees on Rayong’s naturally hilly and undulating course.

Besieged with seasonal rainy and windy weather conditions, this already difficult course was a challenge to be reckoned with for any golfer. Smart’s short game skills was what proved to be the factor that set him apart from the other junior golfers during this event where he completed an impressive 80-78 (158) final score winning the Class B2 division trophy by just one stroke.

The MercedesTrophy will be sponsoring five more two-day events throughout the year at a number of championship golf courses located in the Bangkok area. Top qualifiers from these events will compete in The Masters’ Final which will host international junior golfers from around the world, with the top Thai finishers in each age category winning a trip to an international event overseas to be named later.

Adult School - Visitiors from Abu Dhabi
Dateline: 11 September 2009

Looking to escape from Abu Dhabi’s sizzling summer heat French national Quentin Couturier and Thai national, Nongluck Boonyou decided on Chiang Mai for their cool-down holiday getaway.

Both Quentin and Nongluck were looking for a place to relax and enjoy part of their day riding a motorbike and exploring local and cultural sites while also pursuing their desire to learn some of the important fundamentals of their new found interest - golf.

They found the complete package right here at Three Generation Golf Academy.

Opting to stay right on campus, one of The Residence and Spa one-bedroom suites offered the couple a green and peaceful setting away from the city with close proximity to their morning golf lessons. Director of Golf, Spike Collier, spent a full week with Quentin and Nongluck teaching them essential practice skills so that when they return to Abu Dhabi they could continue their practice regimen.

"Quentin and Nongluck now have the knowledge to manage their own skill development. The next time we get together will be just to add a little more precision. This week was great and a lot of fun." Spike said at the end of a training session.

Although very new to the game Quentin and Nongluck chose to take advantage of one of Chiang Mai’s championship golf courses, The Royal Chiang Mai Golf Club, for a bit of a challenge on the final day of their program. Not quite ready to play a full game on their own, a scramble format of play was used so that they could enjoy the beautiful surroundings and also focus on the most important lesson in golf - having fun!

As a newly-opened venue for golf instruction in Chiang Mai we are often curious as to how our clients from overseas have heard about Three Generation Golf Academy.

"We found out about Three Generation Golf Academy on the Internet. We were impressed with the web layout and informative site. After taking part in the lessons and staying on the campus we can say we see a very bright future for the academy," says Quentin.

TGGA joins the Singapore-Thai Chamber of Commerce
Dateline: 23 July 2009

20 July, 2009 - With current direct flights from Bangkok, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur to Chiang Mai, Three Generation Golf Academy offers easy and accessible opportunities to the region for anyone looking for performance based golf instruction.

The Three Generation Golf Academy has been working hard in recent months to increase awareness of its facility and programs around the region. Networking is an integral part of promoting ones services and indeed is one of the main reasons Three Generation Golf Academy joined the Singapore-Thai Chamber of Commerce (STCC).

The STCC aims to promote economic and social relationships by bringing Thai, Singapore and foreign companies which are stationed in Thailand together.

Singapore is the third largest investor in Thailand and sees that Thailand has a lot of potential given its resources, natural beauty, and its central geographical location to Asian Pacific countries. Many Singaporean tour companies are setting up businesses in Thailand recognizing the potential for tourism as limitless.

As the STCC’s vast network of companies and professionals encourage interactivity between Singapore and Thailand to locate and identify potential partners or business opportunities, Director of Golf, Spike Collier, believes this new relationship will provide an invaluable resource in the marketing of the Golf Academy.
  With the kind invitation of Wilfred Kang (Chairman of STCC) to join in the Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce Presidents Council Meeting, it was clear to me that joining STCC will provide Three Generation Golf Academy with sound advice and up to date current affairs concerning businesses in Asia and around the world

Brian Gay Wins Again!!!
Dateline: 19 June 2009

June 14, 2009 - Brian an ardent student of The Golfing Machine (TGM) scored an 18 under - 262 total, to win by 5 shots at the St. Jude Classic June 11-14.

This win earned Brian an exemption to the 2009 U.S. Open. When he was asked about having to make this last minute trip to New York, Brian said, "I don’t know if we’ll go home or straight up there tomorrow or what. I’ve got a lot of stuff with me and a lot of dirty clothes."

Brian has been studying with TGM super coach, Lynn Blake. Mr. Blake holds the G.S.E.D honors given to him by Homer Kelley the author of The Golfing Machine, the most thorough book on golf stroke engineering in the history of golf.

The book is not an instructional book per se but rather a catalog of components that are found in a golf swing. It is not a book to just pick up and start reading unless you are very keen to know everything! The information is best derived from an instructor according to Mr. Kelley.

Congratulations Brian on another fine display of G.O.L.F.

Es and Smart win at the Northern Thailand Junior Golf Club tournament
Three Generation Golf Academy had three players join in the Northern Thailand Junior Golf Club tournament played at the Summit Green Valley Chiang Mai Country Club this past weekend June 6-7, 2009.

Es, Smart and Run put their skills to the test on a drizzly Saturday morning where Es played nearly flawless golf to shoot a 3 under par 69 and lead the tournament by 4 strokes.

Smart battled it out against the rainy conditions on his last two holes to hang in there for second place shooting a rugged 79.

Returning to tournament play after a two and a half month break, Run, had his ups and downs on the course that day shooting an 86. This put him 8 strokes out of the lead.

On a bit more weather friendly Sunday morning, Run came back like a freight train!!! His front nine score was a three over par 39 which included a 2 stroke penalty. He played his heart out but had a bad break on the 16th hole due to a long wait on the tee box and ended with shooting a 41 on the back nine.

Run managed to make up 4 strokes on the field in the Class C Division for a phenomenal 4th place finish!

Es battled hard on Sunday against his old nemesis, Guy from Chiang Mai, and shot a 1 under 35 on his front nine. Joe came back with an amazing response for the day by shooting a 1 under par round of 71.

The pressure was on for the Class B Division Title! At the last hole Guy drained an amazing 15 foot putt which forced Es into the pressure cooker. Es is now faced with a daunting right to left breaking putt of about 7-8 feet.

Es looked as cool as a cucumber. He went through his methodical routine, took one last look at the hole, and stroked the putt… POW right in the center of the cup!!! I’m not sure but I may have left the ground for a second or two.

To put this winning score of a 1 under par total for 2 days into perspective for you, the Thai Senior Tour played this very same golf course, from the same tees, with a winning score of 4 under par over 4 days.

Meanwhile, way back on the 9th tee box Smart is waiting to play for the Class C Division Title in a play-off agains a very fine player named Joe.

Smart was not having his best day but his "never-give-up" attitude found him chipping in during regulation play to force this play-off. Probably one of the proudest moments I have ever had was after Smart’s play-off tee shot I saw something that just made my heart jump out of my chest.

Walking down the fairway and pulling Smart’s golf bag was his teammate and friend, Run. In a pure hearted gesture of support, Run offered to caddy the play-off for his buddy. At that moment I saw 2 champions walking side by side.

Smart hit his second shot a little heavy and came up short of the green while Joe was struggling a bit hitting his fourth shot over the green. Smart had a 22 yard chip shot facing him and all he has to do is get it close and one-putt to win. Well, I about folded in half when he nearly chipped it in the hole where the ball came to rest 6 inches from the cup!!!


Well, there you have it. Sadly, Nont could not compete due to a back injury but I’m sure he’ll be back with a vengeance. Let’s hand it to these fine young men putting it all on the line when it counts. I thank you guys for working so hard and being true gentlemen warriors.
