Neil is currently in his seventeenth year at Astbury Golf Club and took over as Club Professional in 2006. Neil is a vastly experienced Coach and plays a significant role within The Professional Golfers Association in the training of future Golf Coaches. Only the most knowledgeable, skilled Coaches get to attain such a position within the PGA, so you can rest assured that your golf game will be in very safe hands with Neil.
Each golfer has numerous swing or set up characteristics that are individual to that golfer. A good coach can identify the most pertinent issue, discuss simple and effective ways of improving it, and leave the pupil with a totally clear idea of how to do it. A lesson with me will be simple, uncomplicated and undemanding. If your mind is full of overly technical information, you are unlikely to effectively change anything. I will find the single most pertinent issue in your swing and discuss ways to improve it.
Once we have fixed it, in future lessons, we will look at the next most pertinent issue, and fix that. Simple, clear, one thing at a time. The world's top golfers rarely have their head full of swing thoughts, neither should you.
