CPG Appoint David Kearney to Deliver Community Coach Education2 min read

Posted on: 27th Apr 2021

The Confederation of Professional Golf [CPG] have announced the appointment of David Kearney to lead the delivery of the organisation’s Parents in Golf and other community coaching education programmes.

Through his previous roles as lead coach for the Irish Ladies National Team and one of the original authors of Ireland’s Junior Golf Pathway Manuals, as well as his involvement in golf development missions on behalf of the CPG and The R&A, David brings to the role a wealth of international experience in player and coach development across grassroots, intermediate and elite levels of golf.

As a longstanding PGA Professional for over 25 years, David was recognised for his dedication and various successes in 2018 when he received the 5-Star Professional Award at the CPG Annual Awards.

As Director – Community Coaching & Parents in Golf, David will primarily focus on working closely with CPG Member Countries to activate community coaching programmes including Parents in Golf and Golf Activators, that are each tailored to the countries’ needs through online workshops, in-person seminars and multi-day training courses.

Developed by the CPG, the Parents in Golf programme focuses on building and supporting the relationships between children, parents and the coach, using golf as a medium for children’s development. This complements other CPG community coaching programmes, which focus on training the national and local supporting or volunteer workforce to provide effective introductions to the game.

On his appointment, David Kearney said: “The CPG has such a strong sense of purpose as an organisation particularly around collaboration with their Member Countries and the wider golfing community and these values strongly resonate both personally and professionally for me.”

“I am extremely excited to be involved with their golf education activity and look forward to meeting the CPG Membership through the Parents in Golf and other programmes.”

CPG Chief Executive, Ian Randell, commented: “David brings a wealth of international coaching expertise from his time with the Irish national squads whilst also working closely with the country’s development initiatives. Coupled with his wide-reaching experiences in countries such as Canada and Turkey, we are fortunate to have him on the team and leading the delivery of our community coaching programmes across the CPG membership.”
