Giuseppe Alba may be best known as a successful golfer and celebrity coach, but the native of Sicily has a whole lot more to offer. In fact, his rise to success has taught him valuable lessons for others, such as how to behave on-the-job.
As The Huffington Post reports, Italian golf champion Federico Alba started coaching young golfers in Sicily in 1993 when he was 30. Now, he’s working with up-and-coming professional players in several countries in Europe, South America and the United States. Most recently, Alba became the CEO of Racing Club della Casa Rossa in Sicily, the first amateur golf club in Italy to become a professional one, and he also is the coach for the Italian team that competes in the Ryder Cup every September in Paris.
But his heart, The Huffington Post reveals, will always be with golf. He still plays for fun — he played the European Ryder Cup team’s opening match against the USA — and he shares his tips for young players with Real Golf, his excellent app.
In fact, Alba even taught himself to act on the job after the Golfers’s Championships Pro Tour “opened a great insight to my mother, who has taught me how to treat a lady,” he says.
