Murray Patterson

Top 50 Coach

Location: Cruden Bay Golf Club

Murray took up the game aged ten, when he became a junior member at McDonald Golf Club in Ellon. From an early age, he was determined to become a teaching professional, and during his time at Cruden Bay, he’s established a terrific relationship with the club’s members, and worked with a number of mini Tour professionals and collegiate golfers.

Teaching philosophy:

Everyone is different and there is no single way to swing a club. 

Greatest success story:

My greatest success stories aren’t of those who win competitions or tournaments. My greatest success is when a player is ready to give up and I am able to bring back their love for the game again through them playing better golf.

Biggest challenge:

In a world where everything is instant, you naturally come across players who expect immediate success from little tuition and little practice or play. Getting the player to buy into the long-term process can often be challenging.
