IMG Academy golf program gets back to the game's roots in Scotland
Recently, the IMG Academy golf program had a chance to get back to the game's roots with a trip to Scotland. Eight IMG Academy student-athletes, accompanied by coaches Jay Denton and Andrew Oliphant, traveled to the home of golf. The players had the opportunity to play on the historic St. Andrews circuit of courses including Old Course, New Course, Jubilee and Kingsbarns, with an additional stop at Leven Links. The experience gave the players a chance to learn how to play different surfaces and work on their techniques, while also braving the elements during one of the nation’s coldest winters on record. It was also an opportunity to take in some of the local arts and culture in and around Edinburgh, Scotland. Student-athletes Ian Colliard, Guillermo Cortina, Camilla Serrano, Santiago Miranda, Luis Miranda, Andrea Rahandini, Tim Turnham and QiMing Wong were the players to make the trip this year. It was the fourth consecutive year that IMG Academy has organized a trip to Scotland.
