Back row: Bob Gordon (hat and white socks), Sanjay Singh (teaching pro at Hyderabad), George Bruce 
and Sandy Rennie (blue shirt).
Front row Pushp Vaid (Westhill GC club captain).
George Bruce writes:
Pushp’s ex colleague in the Indian RAF, Capt B L K Reddy, is the honorary secretary at Hyderabad Golf Club.
During a telephone conversation to Captain Reddy, Pushp mentioned that he was a qualified level one coach. 
Capt Reddy asked him to come out to India to teach the Hyderabid kids but Pushp felt he didn’t have enough experience and that's when I got invited over.
Robert Gordon and Sandy Rennie are Westhill GC members and clubgolf junior coaches.
George Bruce, pictured right, is coming up to the end of his 15th year as professional at Westhill Golf Club.
"For the first time in my golfing life, I was playing and teaching in shorts in late November ... but it was quite warm at Hyderabad," said George.
"We were over in India for a couple of weeks and it was a fantastic experience. We gave golf lessons not only to the Hyderabad GC juniors but also to local youngsters.
"All in all, it was a really worthwhile trip."
