Teaching philosophy:

Whilst training to become a PGA golf professional, I was always curious about a quote from golfing legend Tommy Armour…"Understand the swing in its complexity to teach it in utter simplicity. 

Significant influences:

As an England Golf National Squad Coach, I have been fortunate enough to work alongside many outstanding golf coaches and sport science professionals. This has deepened my understanding of the game and helped to recognise that every player is a unique individual. Asking the right questions and listening very carefully to the answers is crucial to understand each golfer's game and offer the best and simplest advice to support their development.
