Morning golfers,

What a crazy week last week was! I was incredibly lucky to spend two days with two of the smartest minds in golf at The Belfry on Thursday and Friday. Lance Gill, Performance and Fitness Coach has worked with some of the top names in golf on their physical dysfunction and capabilities and Jon Tattersall, a Golf Instructor from Atlanta, works with players such as Matt Kuchar.

These two days are only the beginning. This trip time reminded me and challenged me to question how golf Pros see the game and how the body and understanding the body plays a huge role in not only your chances to get better, but also to play the game longer and with less pain.

Put it this way, how many of you played golf in the last two weeks and either during or after the round felt your back, legs or shoulders? With an aging population in golf, it is of no surprise I hear this more and more. One of the biggest issues we see is the word "fitness", people hear this at age 55 - 60 and think I'm too old, I haven't got enough time to go to the gym to train just for my golf. Here's the deal, it's not always about lifting weights, looking like Rory and slipping into a tight fitting top. NO, it's about does your physical capabilities fit what you are trying to do in the golf season, if it does great, but does it or will it cause you pain? As a Level Three Personal Trainer, Fitness Coach, Golf Pro and Golf Specialist I am excited about how this will develop and the offerings I can give players in the future months. Plus, there is going to be a great addition to our coaching offering, NOBODY is going to be going near Cambridge. Keep your eyes peeled!

As now, I am the only Certified TPI Golf Instructor in the Cambridgeshire area, and I am looking to put Girton Golf Club on the map. Click here to check out my profile.

Over the forthcoming weeks, if pain, fitness, performance, golf and score is something that is getting you down, contact me here, as over the next few weeks and months there will be something I will and want to do about it.

On-course Coaching - Real World Application

Can you afford to work with a coach on the course? Would having a skill session followed by time to apply it straight on the course be beneficial? Would be able to go out on the course give more context to the shot and open questions around you scoring better? If you think it would then sign-up to one of our on-course coaching options in May and June.

Option One with Head Professional Alan Fletcher

Acquire the skill then apply it! 30 minute skill acquisition session (based on your weakest area, putting, chipping, pitching, driving etc), followed by a 90 minute on-course coaching session looking at ways to APPLY this new skill, use it in game time and how to improve scores.

For May and June this is only £80.

Option Two with Teaching Professional Dean Saunders

Bring your friends and learn from everyone. Dean will be offering up to three people the chance to join him in a group coaching clinic. The cost is £70 split between the group, whether that be one, two or three people. Ask questions and let Dean talk you through different ways to play these shots.

To book either of these session email us here.
