Putting Lessons & Coaching

Mark's Philosophy

My teaching style has evolved over the years as my quest for knowledge has provided me with information to truly understand putting and what is actually required to improve a players putting performance..

I have carried out hundreds (if not thousands) of hours of research into 4 key coaching areas, all of which link together to create you as an individual player:

  • Putting Technique – covering every aspect of putting including posture, structure, stability, timing, stroke characteristics, face and speed control.
  • Green Reading – as an Aimpoint Certified Instructor I coach players how to use the Worlds #1 system to accurately read every putt you’ll be faced with on the course
  • Putter Fitting – Edel Torque Balanced Putters are individually made to order. The Edel fitting process covers every aspect of putting from aim and alignment through to speed and distance control. Putters can be personalised with your initials and choice of colours. Delivery is direct from USA in around 4 weeks from the date of order.
  • Consistency – as a Certified Master Mind Factor Coach I will teach you how to bring a level of consistency to your performance and teach you how to think like a Tour player.

State of the art equipment

Studio lessons utilise state of the art equipment that accurately measure the ball roll, putter performance and the players stroke. This level of technology allows me to base any recommendations for improvement on facts. The putter is the most used club in the bag and is too important to leave to guesswork.

Learned from the Best

My teaching philosophy is based around the knowledge I have acquired from knowing and working with some of the World’s most gifted coaches.
