Premium Golf Enjoyment Survey

Alex Nicolson

Golf Monthly has teamed up with Alex Nicolson at Premium Golf to draw attention to the way many golfers think about the game.

Alex, a PGA Professional, has an fresh and innovative approach to coaching and instruction, and will be writing a regular piece in Golf Monthly throughout 2013.

He aims to change the overriding attitude that golf is all about the numbers, and dispel the 'performance equation', suggesting how well we play is directly proportional to how much we enjoy the game.

To help refine topic areas for future columns, your feedback is sought, so please take a moment to fill out the Premium Golf Enjoyment survey (link below).
