FAQ's

Q: Why should I have golf coaching? 

A: Getting coaching is a way of unlocking your potential to improve. Whether you want to win major championships or your club championship, reach single figures, beat your friends, master a new skill, or even have more enjoyment in your hobby, coaching can help with this. 

Q: Will I have to change my swing? 

A: This depends entirely on where you are at with your golf game and what you want from your coaching. Improvement comes from many different directions, one of which may be altering something in your swing, but improvement never stops and there are always different techniques and skills we can try to master, regardless of where we are at. There are more ways than one to lower your scores.

Q: How does a golf lesson work?

A: We begin by discussing your game, your goals and your requirements. We then identify your strengths and the areas of your game in need of improvement and begin trying to improve those areas (which may technique, skill or performance based). We will develop your understanding of cause and effect and how to apply that knowledge to your play and practice. We will keep it as simple as possible (but not simpler); too much information rarely yields optimal results.

Q: How many lessons do I need? 

A: Progress isn't a one-off event, it is a journey. The number of lessons you need will depend multiple factors, but if the best players in the world see their coaches regularly, why shouldn't you? 

Q: How should I practice? 

A: This depends on where you like to practice. Is it on the course, at the range, or both? Regardless of this, your practice should be relative to something you are trying to improve - and your current ability level - have immediate feedback, and should be difficult. In order to grow, we need to go beyond our comfort zones. This can be tough to adapt to at first, but rewarding down the road.

Q: How often should I practice?

A: This will vary depending on your lifestyle and time constraints. A full time golfer will tend to practice more than a weekend golfer, but little and often usually trumps a long, one-off session. That being said, the quality of your practice is the most crucial part. Once a week can be extremely beneficial if the practice is well structured and focused, so don't be disheartened if you only have time for once session per week. 

Q: Will I see improvement immediately? 

A: The goal is always to improve something immediately, but often learning something new can destablise the system and cause some temporary regression in performance. If you are not seeing improvement after 4 or 5 sessions with quality practice in between, then it may be that something needs to change.

Q: Should I question my coach if I don't like something? 

A: Absolutely! If there is ever anything that you don't understand or that you don't like the feeling of, don't be afraid to raise it with your coach. You should be able to work together to find the best solution for you.
