Yet another season on its way and if your anything like me, your desperate for better weather and a chance to get out there for a game!
The 2022 season is looking at being a great year I hope. This awful virus seems to be getting gradually less dangerous, and there seems many more golfers itching to get out there and learn this great game or continue improving, I wish you all the best of successes.
I am hoping to start coaching again as soon as possible once the weather and course become a little more favourable, its looking like early February I hope. As well as private one to one coaching, I will once again be coaching small group classes, and please feel free to approach me with your own private group if you prefer, which allows you to set the time and dates for the coaching. There will be organised group sessions later in the year for men, ladies and mixed groups, please look out for the dates, Im expecting April time.

With over 20 years experience, my goal has been to provide high standards of coaching and to take your game to an entirely new level, thus enhancing your enjoyment of this great game. This is achieved by giving expert and personal "hands on" instruction specially tailored to your individual needs and goals.
My teaching background started in the late eighties with PGA teaching Professional Graham Cowley in Hampshire, England, where I then traveled with Justin Rose to Lake Nona in Florida to work with David Leadbetter.
Since then I have worked as a Teaching Professional mainly in England but also teach at the ‘5-star’ Vale do Lobo resort, Portugal in February each year for private clients, and I teach regularly at the much acclaimed Carya golf resort in Turkey throughout the winter months, staying at the fantastic Regnum Deluxe hotel. Please take a look at the hotel and courses by pressing the trip video tab on the main page. Additionally I am an employee and personal friend of Tiger Woods and I accompany him during the Open Championship each year in the U.K
Since 2006 I had my own successful academy in Germany before returning to Oxfordshire. I coached for a short time at the Oxford Golf Academy before being offered the Head Professionals position at Princes Risborough Golf Club, Buckinghamshire. I was very pleased and excited to take up this new role and new challenge. The club have since improved the small practice area as requested, into the '9 Smart Shot Short Game Academy'. My intension with the new short game area is to give members and guests a place to sharpen up the most important part of this great game, and I very much hope you will all use this new facility.
My playing career has brought success on the PGA Euro Pro Tour, Elite Pro Tour and also on the Alps Tour in Southern Europe and the German EPD Tour. As well as being a fully qualified professional with the British PGA, with a degree in golf studies and sports sciences, I have also been a full playing member of the Belgium PGA and played regularly on the Belgium PGA tour. In Febuary 2016 I played in the European Tour Senior qualifying school and made it through to the finals where just the top 60 players in Europe fought out for only 5 cards.
All of my coaching will be small and relaxed in nature and drawing on over 20 years of experience. I am confident that my teaching style will alleviate the intimidation factor of taking lessons and will replace this with sound fundamentals that will allow all standards of players to reach their golfing potential.
I am pleased to also annouce that from 2018 I have joined forces with Callaway Golf and you will now be able to order Callaway clubs, clothing, shoes and golf balls, as well as all accessories from the number one golf retailer. Please use this new opportunity and try to support this new venture so that we can continue to have access to top quality golf equipment and clothing.
Please contact me directly or look at the flyers for information on future 'golf coaching trips'. I have organized and coached many trips to hotels and courses whiche rank amongst the very best in hotel quality and golf course facilities in the world over the last 10 years. The coaching trips are coaching intensive, but will guarantee improvement and a better understanding of your swing. Please join us if you can, you won't regret it!
As a side point, I have co-written a book that has been published and is on sale now on Amazon. It was co-written with Professor Andy Sola and is titled 'The Philosophical Golfer", please take a look. You can also ask at the Princes Risborough Golf Club or take a look on Amazon if you wish to purchase a copy. Thank you.
