Coaching Philosophy

  • “Golfers are only one shot away from failure and, one shot from success”
  • It’s just a question of how they deal with both situations.
  • The coach must have the ability to instill strong self belief within the pupil.
  • The coach needs to ensure the player can do the basic principles to the best of their ability.
  • The coach must have the ability to make practice enjoyable, but also add the pressure of playing to that enjoyment
