Ways to get the best from Golf Lessons

2019-04-02T15:54:07+00:00April 2nd, 2019|

Don’t tell your pro what’s wrong with your swing -  I see this several times with new clients. They show up and say, “I need to slow my transition.” Or, “My left arm is stuck inside.” These are all things analysts say during televised golf broadcasts, and unless you frequently play on TV, they probably [...]

Both of Them Say they’re Jesus….One of Them Must be Wrong!

2018-12-10T11:12:10+00:00December 10th, 2018|

Different golf coaches will tell you different things – so how do you know who to trust? Views on how the golf swing works are like stories about near holes-in-one – everyone has one, and no-one really wants to listen to anyone else’s. Absolutely everything within the golf swing can be cause for contention, which [...]

One Size Doesn’t Fit ALL!

2018-10-07T12:25:43+00:00October 7th, 2018|

One of my clients posted a video of his swing on social media a few weeks ago. No ball flight, no data but he hit it well and at it ended up at the target. he is really happy how his game is progressing! He did however, have ,and always had, a bit of bend [...]

Not Fit For Purpose

2018-09-02T15:09:58+00:00September 2nd, 2018|

Not Fit For Purpose.......... More and more I’m seeing the high frustration level of golfers is a leading cause of their giving up the game. I believe much can be done to help golfers better understand the game, and most importantly, improve their enjoyment. In my opinion one of the main sources of this frustration [...]

Get out of your own way!

2018-07-08T11:47:10+00:00July 8th, 2018|

What stops serious golfers from realising their potential?  I’ve made a career out of trying to help golfers like you maximise your abilities. However, in my opinion, the things I see lots of you doing is often what is holding you back. The reality is that most players are generally distracted by what’s not important, [...]

Of All The Things I Teach Or Have Taught In Golf…

2018-02-28T13:03:01+00:00February 28th, 2018|

Of all the things I teach or have taught in golf, I think this is the most important: It’s not what we cover in a lesson, it’s what YOU discover.  If you are hitting the ball better during a lesson, you have proven to yourself that you CAN do it. But what comes after the lesson [...]

Is progress our ability to complicate simplicity?

2017-11-27T15:13:16+00:00November 27th, 2017|

It’s great that we now have the technology to seemingly analyse every aspect of the golfer, their swing, the ball and the golf club, but we have to be realistic in terms of our goals. Ask yourself this question: If I can’t do something perfectly, is there a way I can still do it better? [...]

Does Custom Fitting Help?

2017-10-06T12:20:43+00:00October 6th, 2017|

If a new set of fitted clubs meant that you'd drive the ball 20 yards longer and drop 10 strokes, would you reach for your credit card? According to a recent test conducted by a top club-fitting company, such handicap-smashing results are possible. They had seven players custom-fit for all-new sets, from driver to putter. [...]

3 Steps to Heaven

2017-10-06T14:19:56+00:00October 6th, 2017|

Your golf is broken and you know it. There's something fundamentally wrong. Everything was fine, and then one day it wasn’t. Well, that’s not entirely true. You started to feel it slipping away a few weeks ago but you ignored it hoping that it would get better. Unfortunately it got worse, until you had a [...]

Further?

2017-09-01T15:56:16+00:00September 1st, 2017|

Trouble is, average golfers aren't taking advantage of the game's increasingly sophisticated technology. A recently exclusive player test revealed that golfers across all ability levels are leaving an average of 23 yards on the table. Golf Digest studied how 150 average golfers hit their drivers. They measured swing speeds from 60 miles per hour to [...]
