Dodd gets back to basics to show gratitude to home club
Tournament professional Lawrence Dodd joined a group of Thetford juniors to help them sharpen up their game for the coming season.
Dodd, who represents Thetford, was joined by his caddy and mind factor coach Neil Goodchild and they spent the morning in a clubhouse session, passing on their knowledge of the professional game and helping the youngsters adapt it into their games.
The afternoon started with a short game skills challenges on the chipping and putting green before Dodd played a few holes on the course to show how he approaches each shot and the importance of a good routine.
Dodd, who progressed through the club's junior ranks, is keen to help young golfers and said: 'I hope all of the juniors enjoyed the day as much as Neil and I did and use some of the techniques when they play next.'
Dodd, who will play on this season's Challenge Tour and EuroPro Tour, is hosting his first golf day at Thetford on May 5 and proceeds will help to fund his playing expenses for the year. Some places are still available.
