Expert Putting Coaching and Putter Fitting by Mark Bentley
My coaching 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 player’s putting performance.

I have carried out thousands of hours of research into 4 key areas, all of which link together to create the best version of you as a player:

Putting Technique
AimPoint Express Green Reading
Putter Fitting
On-Course Performance

Putting Technique – covering keys aspects of putting including aim, posture, structure, stability, timing, stroke characteristics, start line and distance control. 2 or 3 hour lesson appointments are available in the Studio or on the green at Forest Pines. If you wish, you can combine a lesson at Forest Pines with an overnight stay and a round of golf at preferential rates. Please let me know if this is something I can arrange for you.

Unless learning AimPoint, I recommend your first appointment should be at the Studio where using Quintic – the “Gold Standard” of putting technology we can capture data specific to you, your stroke and putter/ball roll performance. Based on what we find we can then develop an appropriate coaching plan, corrective drills and improvements.

For further information on the technology used please visit:

The Studio includes a 5m x 2m green with a 2% built in slope, where we can check and measure your tendencies on both straight and breaking putts. Two speeds of green are available – tour speed at 12.5 stimp and standard at 10.5 stimp. Depending on your needs, skill level and preferences you can replicate real course conditions appropriate to the greens you play on.
Follow up lessons can be held either in the Studio or on the Putting Green at Forest Pines.
Outdoor coaching on the green at Forest Pines GC allows me to carry out a full assessment to identify your strengths and weaknesses incl. green reading, start line, distance control & touch. Exercises and drills can then be created for you as appropriate.
