Leadbetter is one of the biggest names in golf from a coaching standpoint as he has helped players secure 26 Major victories. He has famously worked with as many as seven world number ones and just some of the players he has coached include Sir Nick Faldo, Greg Norman, Nick Price, Ernie Els, Michelle Wie and Lydia Ko.
