Jane settles in to club coaching role



AFTER missing her European tour golf card by one shot, for the second time, Brisbane's Jane Evans is heading to Yeppoon.

Jane is the Yeppoon Golf Club's new assistant professional, working with David Cardillo.

Starting on January 14, this will be Jane's second stint at the Yeppoon club after a brief spell earlier last year.

"I can't wait (to start),'' Jane said. "I love the area and the people.''

At the age of 25, and frustrated by tour near-misses, Jane was looking for a career change.

"I wasn't enjoying it, but I might go back again in a few years time,'' she said.

This will be Jane's first job as a professional coach, but she has tried her hand at coaching other golfers before.

Although frustrated with her own game, Jane said golf was the perfect equaliser.

"Everyone can play it, it doesn't matter if you're good or bad.

"Once you can hit the ball it's really satisfying.''

Before turning professional in 2004 Jane, who grew up on the Darling Downs, played in State teams for three years.
