My Aim and Philosophy

If you’re a complete beginner or someone who’s been playing for years, my aim is of course to improve your game, but also make the experience enjoyable. Simple, basic information that you can understand (no technical jargon here!).

I teach the way I would want to be taught – one step at a time, understanding what is to be done and how to do it correctly.  I like to feel that anyone who comes for a lesson with me will not be confused with what is being taught. We cover everything from using the correct equipment to knowing how to practice to develop your game.

My Approach

Everyone who walks through my door is different, but they are all treated the same way – with respect.  Not everyone can devote the time they would like for many different reasons.  I understand that and take this into consideration with everyone I teach.

Having played golf for over 40 years I’ve met some fantastic, colourful and interesting people and have enjoyed every minute of it.  It’s helped me to learn even more about this wonderful game.

Give me the chance to share with you my knowledge of golf and enjoy the experience!
