Having played a lot of golf as a youngster I developed a passion for the game and decided I wanted to pursue a career in golf. I always enjoyed sharing my knowledge and advice with other players and soon decided I wanted to become a teaching professional.
With a scratch handicap, I qualified as a PGA teaching professional over 15 years ago and soon established myself as a resident golf club professional in Milton Keynes.
In addition to qualifying as a PGA professional I have played British Open qualifying tournaments, pro-am events and charity days. As such I have a thorough knowledge of all levels of amateur competition and am able to pass this advice on to you.
I believe in teaching sound fundamentals and building a simple golf swing, which you will be able to rely upon for many years, even when under pressure!
I have taught thousands of golfers, from beginners wanting to discover golf, to scratch players requiring fine-tuning and coaching. My love of golf and teaching remains to this day and I am equally excited to see new students progress, as I am my regular clients’ maintaining and improving their handicaps.
It is especially gratifying when new students come to me based on recommendations from happy customers, often from other golf clubs in and around the Milton Keynes area.
At Wavendon Golf Club, just outside Milton Keynes we have all the facilities required to learn golf. For most lessons the floodlit driving range is perfect. I have created a comfortable, astro-turfed bay, with a Pure Strike range mat. This ensures balls can be struck from the most realistic artificial surface possible.
I use a number of teaching aids, including a laser-guided club, swing analysis tools & video software and a raised putting matt to ensure you develop as quickly as possible.
In addition, the Par 3 course is ideal for beginners or sharpening up your short game, whilst the main course is ideal for playing lessons or short game sessions. There is also a practice green for sharpening up your putting.
I am a keen follower of the latest advancements in golf equipment and have seen first hand the impact that technology has had on golf. I regularly discuss and advise my clients on the right equipment, specifications and custom fit options, which would help improve their game.
We store a variety of clubs at the Golf Centre, so you can try a different shaft flex or just borrow a few clubs if it’s your first time.
The PGA is the standard by which golf teaching professionals are judged. To qualify requires years of hard work, ensuring that all graduates are fully trained and capable of teaching you the fundamentals of playing golf.
