“Simple things done often” – is the philosophy I use to help people build their golf games with strong foundations tailored to an individual’s own style.
After the past 8 years as the Golf Programs Manager at the PGA IGI and the 15 years as the Head Golf Professional at Burleigh Golf Club (10 years) and Inverell Golf Club (5 years) – I have developed a successful game development approach through the ability to deliver golf information in simple and clear terms, and taking the role as a “partner “in your continual improvement. My aim is to make you a better golfer not just have a better swing providing a holistic approach to improve your game at every stage of your golf development.
Golf can be challenging and frustrating but it can also be exhilarating and rewarding. It’s the challenge which makes the sense of accomplishment so rewarding. Whether you are just starting out or have been playing for years – I believe there is a swing and style of play which gives you your best chance to play your best golf.
Above all golf should be fun! You should enjoy the “getting better”.
People care how much you know when they know how much you care – As your golf professional – I am part coach, game manager, caddy, cheerleader and psychologist – your challenges are my challenges; your success is my success.
