Hit the Nail on the Head

2020-04-18T11:28:28+00:00April 18th, 2020|

“If all you have is a persuasive hammer, every problem will look like a subservient nail. When you respect individual nails only then can you select your hammer!” I’ve recently become concerned that the trend in modern day and especially online coaching has become so obsessed with aesthetics and not paying enough attention to function. [...]

One of the most frequent things I’ve heard during my many years as a coach is: “in my lessons, I get it; but I can’t repeat it on the course, I suppose, as usual, I just go back to my old habits.” In my opinion, it does not matter if you’re a pro golfer or [...]

Still Haven’t Found What You’re Looking For?

Recently I saw a video of a world top 20 player working on technical stuff on the range at a recent tournament. What he was working on was the same thing he has been doing for the last 2 years minimum. Same drill......after 2 years!! That fact contains a very important and helpful message, although, [...]

Older But Maybe Not So Wise!

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!

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?

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!

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 [...]
