Nadene has developed a unique pairing of skills along her golfing journey. On the one hand, the sheer ability to play the game – forged in the heat of battle on the professional tour against the best players around the world. On the other, the ability to pass on its secrets, nuances, and skills – developed out of an increasing involvement in coaching. This is a rare combination which began when she started the game at 13, represented Victoria at 15, Australia at 18 and by 21, after a series of amateur wins, turned professional. By the end of her tour career she won 7 events around the world and had numerous Top 10 finishes in Australia, Japan, Europe, Asia and the US. Since retirement from the tour, Nadene is a fully accredited coach and received a two year scholarship endorsed by The Australian Institute of Sport where she completed a Graduate Certificate/ Diploma- Applied Science in Elite Sports Coaching at the University of Queensland. Nadene also held the title as Assistant National Coach for Women’s Golf Australia in 2002/3.
