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:
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.
My teaching philosophy is based around the knowledge I have acquired from knowing and working with some of the World’s most gifted coaches.
Paul Hurrion a biomechanics consultant and renowned coach to players such as Danny Willett, Rory McIlroy and Padraig Harrington is the force behind Quintic, a high speed camera and software system that tracks the putter and the ball at impact. The data analysis produced by Quintic is trusted by all major manufacturers and dozens of Tour players throughout the World.
Jamie Donaldson is Europe’s Senior Aimpoint Instructor. His green reading skills are known throughout the World. Aimpoint is used by players such as Justin Rose, Adam Scott and Lydia Ko and Ian Poulter.
Karl Morris is one of Europe’s leading Performance Coaches who has worked with 6 Major winners and numerous Tour players as well as amateurs, Walker Cup and Curtis Cup players. Creator of the Mind Factor programme which educates players to develop the right mind-set to improve their on-course performance.
2 hours – ideal to accurately record and analyse the various aspects of your technique, putting stroke and ball-roll performance using Quintic as well as your timing and tempo with Blast Motion Sensors. You will be given the knowledge you need and the drills necessary to improve your putting. Lesson notes and appropriate videos included.
1 hour – ideal follow up lesson to check progress and make further recommendations.
2 hours – ideal to improve these 3 key areas:
1 hour in the Studio – Using the full power of Quintic to ensure your putter specification is optimised to get the best results on the greens. Advice on the ideal length, lie angle, loft, weight, grip and alignment profile for either an EvnRoll or Edel putter (to be purchased separately).
