Teaching method.

 

Firstly Adam feels that creating a relaxed pressure free learning environment is what enables all his pupils to get the most out of their lesson times. Adam has over 7 years of coaching experience in which time he has developed his reputation as a highly knowledgeable golf coach.

 

He understands that there is not just 1 perfect golf swing as everyone has their own unique styles and movements however there is a perfect impact position for each individual that will allow them to improve their consistency and results.

 

He believes that all golfers should have the basic knowledge of what makes a good golf swing and develop a detailed picture of their own golf swing. This will allow you to leave your lesson with a clear understanding of what you are trying to improve and help you to achieve the desired results as quickly as possible.

Teaching Philosophy

Adam is a results based golf coach and believes in finding the swing fault and cause to the golfers inconsistency as the priority, rather than trying to get the golfer to swing to a certain method. Adam understands we are all different as golfers so Adam treats every student as a complete individual and tailors lessons to suit the individual’s needs from practice to course management, each golfer will have an understanding and a plan to maintain improvement for the long term and reach their potential as a golfer.
