Our PGA Professionals
As a professional Golf Coach, I have gathered a wealth of experience from a variety of some of the most recognised coaches in the world. It was a privilege for me to begin my coaching career with Michael Bannon , coach to Rory McIlroy. Michaels focus on the fundamentals of the game have become a bedrock for my teaching and helps me focus on individuals rather than swing styles or methods. Also influenced by Claude Harmon and Justin Parsons coach to Open Champion Brian Harman.
The use of modern technologies such as Trackman combined with a TPI education helps me to leave no stone unturned in identifying your swing characteristics and finding your most efficient swing.
Finding a plan for you is a critical moment in the path to improvement and this plan begins with assessment of your game and identifying the areas of focus to meet your goals. That might be better course management , a better putting stroke or maybe some swing education. You can be a better golfer with a plan , call me now to be your improvement partner in golf.
