La Manga Club, 11th October 2016 – Still don’t know the new professional team at our new Golf Academy at La Manga Club? We will present them to you!
The Golf Training Centre is the new learning centre of golf, that La Manga Club opened only a few days ago. Swedish Thomas Johansson is the director of this new academy and intends to take golf ‘to the next level’. Johansson started to teach golf professionaly on 1st April 1996 (altough he has been playing golf since 1981 as a junior) and has not stopped since then. He loves to teach and enjoy challenges and that is why he will pay special attention to kids and teenagers that bring themselves to the Training Centre. One of his objectives is to form a junior golf team that carries La Manga Club’s name across all the region and national geographic. Additionally, I started the golf programme in Gibraltar for the Special Olympics where I tought athletes with special needs. I'm also teaching the World Blind Golf Champion.
Alongside Thomas Johansson is Anthony McCarthy, already a well-known person at La Manga Club as he has developed his professional career in the last two years at this complex. After giving golf lessons in England and coming to La Manga Club as a young child to play golf, McCarthy considers the resort like his second home.
The team is complete with another Swedish man, Anders Thelberg, who shares the same philosophy and values as the rest of the members of the team. Thelberg has developed a large part of his career in Norway and is head of education for the PGA in Norway. He is also a trainer for other trainers and his passion is teaching.
