CHINESE MEDIA GET IN THE SWING WITH DAVID HOWELL

A group of Chinese media professionals covering the Volvo China Open at the Topwin Golf and Country Club took time out for a special one-off playing lesson from five-time European Tour winner and Ryder Cup star David Howell.

The Englishman, who also holds the post of Chairman of the European Tour Tournament Committee, gave the journalists and broadcasters a taste of the basics of playing the game of golf from club position and posture, to grip and balance.

And he soon had his new pupils – many of whom were swinging a club for the first time – comfortably hitting balls down the middle of the driving range at the host club.

Thanks to Howell’s generous and good humoured coaching skills, he is sure to have an army of new followers when he takes part in the final two rounds of the Volvo China Open this weekend after two opening rounds of 71 have left him on two-under-par.
