Philosophy

"My teaching philosophy is based around feel and understanding. Having encountered numerous swing types and personalities, I have learnt that not only are golfers all built differently, but no two think the same. My goal with each client is to get an insight as to where they want to go with their game and where they think they are going wrong. Teaching with the clients point of view in mind achieves a higher absorption and retention, and therefore improvement rate”

Top Tip

"Less is more - It is pretty much guaranteed that whenever we mis-hit a shot, it is because we have tried too hard to physically hit the ball. Tension forms such a big part of everything we do wrong in the golf swing, so next time you are on the driving range try to hit the ball with a percentage in mind. Hit a couple at 50%, a few more at 60% and work your way up to a maximum of 85%. These thoughts will take emphasis off trying to hit the ball, release the tension from the arms and enable you to actually swing the golf club. You will find that the club actually accelerates through impact and your distance and accuracy will almost certainly improve. The next stage is to step on the first tee and tell yourself that you are going to swing the club at a certain percentage the whole day, and I guarantee the results will soon follow"
