I am highly qualified PGA level 4 coach with over 20 years’ experience working with elite amateur and tournament professional golfers. Specialising in bespoke long-term training and development plans, I use a wide range of innovative technologies and training techniques to accelerate students’ skill progression. This approach consistently delivers measurable and sustained development across a wide range of disciplines.
Since 2010 I have applied my coaching methods in my role as the England U18’s regional coach for the South of England, where I have a proven track record of producing some of the best young talent in the country. In 2008 I spent 4 years working under Rugby World Cup winning coach, Sir Clive Woodward, at the British Olympic Association, an experience which has informed all parts of my coaching and given a deep insight into building effective programmes for teams and individuals.
HOW I HELP MY CLIENTS
At the start of any coaching process I undertake a thorough assessment of a client’s current situation, any particular issues that they present with and the goals they have for their coaching experience. I asses a wide range of performance factors, not just the golf swing, and discuss them openly with the client to make sure we identify their most effective pathway to success. I then focus on designing a bespoke training and development plan that contains regular measured check points to ensure we are on the right track.
If I recognise that the client could benefit from more specialist help, I will draw on my established network of leading experts in sporting performance from around the world, to ensure that the client is getting the best possible coaching and that my implementation is based on sound scientific research and proven tested methods.
I use the very latest in ball flight and club head impact measurement technology such as the GCQUAD [see the TECHNOLOGY page], and also use high speed high frame rate camera footage along with the best video analysis software to pin point key technical flaws that are causing the ball flight/shot result issues.
I also measure key performance stats from the golf course on all areas of their game using one of the best online stats analytics software tools, GOLF DATA LAB. It measures the skill levels for their putting, short game, approach play, and driving. There are over 14,000 elite amateurs and 2,000 professional golfers currently using this system around the world to help focus their training and practice on the key areas they need to improve.
