He said: "We're looking forward to getting the sessions started, they should be good fun for all who are involved."

The sessions will take place on August 4 and 5 and August 18 and 19, and will run from 11am-1pm and 2-4pm each day.

The courses are spread over two days, with the first day free of charge, and the second, which is optional, costing £20.

Smith said: "The first session will cover the swing, while the second will focus on the short game. Above all, it will be fun and available to all, although places are limited.

"It's the first one we have organised and hopefully will be the first of many junior programmes."
