Older But Maybe Not So Wise!

2019-10-11T16:31:56+00:00October 11th, 2019|

It seems like just the other day that I embarked on my teaching career, yet it was almost 20 years ago. As a coach it didn’t take me long to get to a point where I thought I pretty much knew everything there was to know about the golf swing. Oh how things have changed! [...]

Why you sometimes struggle to improve!

2019-06-09T18:06:30+00:00June 9th, 2019|

Firstly, online golf instruction videos. In general, YouTube instructional videos are mostly misleading and probably non specific to what you really need . Now, that’s not to say there’s not some great golf instruction on there, of course there is. However, for the most part, there’s a reason for the adage “you get what you pay [...]

Should You Get Custom Fitted For Golf Clubs?

2019-06-09T11:01:27+00:00June 9th, 2019|

If you’ve been playing golf for a while (at least a couple of years) you know the answer to this frequently asked question: Should I get fitted for golf clubs? – and the answer is a resounding YES!  But if you’re a newbie at the game, still trying to decide if you really want [...]

Ways to get the best from Golf Lessons

2019-06-09T10:56:30+00:00April 2nd, 2019|

Don’t tell me what’s wrong with your swing - I see this several times with new clients. They show up and say, “I need to slow my swing.” Or, “My left arm is bent.” These are all things analysts say during televised golf broadcasts or You Tube video tutorials. Unless you frequently play on TV, [...]

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? [...]
