Ladina King and Carrie Park the Perfect Pairing

Ladina King, amateur and seasoned golfer,  2 times Dimension Data winner and Pro PinkStig Dream team player, Carrie Park teamed up to play in the Sunshine Ladies Tour Dimension Data Challenge and the 72 –hole Betterball Medal Challenge.

Amateurs are teamed with a professional golfer and together they compete for the Dimension Data Pro-Am trophy with the additional professional prize fund. They compete using the Betterball Medal scoring system whereby the lowest stroke by the pro or amateur is recorded for each hole.

This is a match made in heaven, understanding Ladina’s coaching career and the winning streak of young Carrie Park who won the SA Women’s Masters on the 21 January 2017. Ladina’s illustrious two wins at this event added to her coaching career speaks volumes in her interaction with the amateur and young pro golfers. With all the focus on success and winning, we easily can overlook the emotional aspect of the game as the technique most times takes centre stage.

Ladina King

Ladina is a life coach who is passionate about translating the wisdom of the Enneagram and the art of presence into every day experiences.

She says on her coaching site, “Finding our heart, expressing and living from this authentic place brings meaning and aliveness to our daily lives”.

In her own practice on she says: “be curious, get out of your own way and explore that authentic you”.

With a field of 54 golfers, one is inclined to almost scream to the players to gain as much wisdom and knowledge from Ladina as we understand the importance of EQ (emotional intelligence) versus IQ. The PinkStig logo aims to visibly deliver on these three effects – namely an emotional, intelligent and social response. We believe targeting these three aspects of human behaviour will create a lasting effect, allowing for constant growth.

Ladina King embodies these components in a perfect golf game, mixing the technique and experience with her coaching philosophy and her past wins bearing testament to this.

Will this be the hat trick win for Ladina King paired with Carrie Park who is in T1 on the leaderboard going into Day2 of the SLT Dimension Data Ladies Challenge? #mentorshipmatters
