Rob Watts is new England boys’ coach 
Rob Watts, who coached Darren Clarke when he won The Open, has been appointed as the new lead coach for the England Golf boys’ squad. 
He will deliver the national boys’ coaching programme and support England boys’ teams at specific events throughout the year. He will take up his position with immediate effect.
Watts is based at Castle Royle in Berkshire, where he is the head PGA professional and runs the Rob Watts Performance Academy. He has extensive coaching experience and works with golfers across a wide spectrum, from European Tour players to elite amateurs and county squads as well as beginners and improvers. 
He has been an England Golf U16 regional squad coach for the past three years and currently works with three England internationals. 
Watts is an Advanced Fellow of the PGA and also has qualifications in exercise, nutrition and lifestyle coaching. 
He said: “It is a great honour and I am very proud to have been given the opportunity to work with our national boys’ team. It is a very exciting time, I am very much looking forward to meeting and working with the boys, specialist coaches and management so we can continue to aspire and deliver performances for England Golf on an international level.”
Nigel Edwards, England Golf’s Performance Director, said: “We are delighted to welcome Rob to his new role in our team and look forward to working with him to achieve even greater successes for our players.”
