Dundonald, 12th July 2017 – World No. 2.

Supported by Bank of Scotland to engage and inspire the next generation of Scottish talent, Jutanugarn is joined by the Golf Trick Shot Boys and a number of Ladies European Tour players to deliver the insightful and informal teaching clinic on Wednesday 26th July, aimed at junior golfers of all abilities from local schools and golf clubs in North Ayrshire.
Famous for their unique show involving unicycles, Swiss balls and other golfing gadgets, the Golf Trick Shot boys kick-start the day before the children then take on a number of different challenges with tuition from the Scottish golf coaches and Tour professionals. At the end of the day, attendees will also have the opportunity to watch their favourite players including Lydia Ko and Charlie Hull in the pro am as well as receive two complimentary tickets for the Championship.
