Form Follows Function

Apologies for the absence from the blog, the preparations for the return to golf have well and truly begun. Over the winter period I found myself writing more and more about PGA & European Tour golf but as we come out of this lockdown I anticipate posts to trend towards instruction. If there are anyContinue reading “Form Follows Function”

A Fresh Start

The end of lockdown is in sight. The date is set and the preparations can begin. Disappointingly, it is still a few weeks away but we can be positive that there is light at the end of this horribly dark tunnel. With this being one of my last posts in this strange period of ourContinue reading “A Fresh Start”

Forgive Quickly – A Valuable Lesson from Max Homa’s Victory

Apologies for the posts in quick succession but this one’s an important one. Max Homa won in nerve biting fashion on Sunday night at the PGA Tour’s Genesis open hosted by the fantastic Riviera Club. If you didn’t see it, I highly recommend watching the highlights which can be found here. Tied for the leadContinue reading “Forgive Quickly – A Valuable Lesson from Max Homa’s Victory”

Not all Progress is Visible to the Naked Eye

Why am I not getting better? The million dollar question. The question that if we knew the answer to we’d be shooting 65 every week. One of the things I love about golf is that it can never be completed, we can always strive for better, forever. This also provides it’s downfalls, we get frustratedContinue reading “Not all Progress is Visible to the Naked Eye”

The Distance Debate Simplified

So much ‘golf talk’ at the moment is focussing on distance I thought I would jump on here and hopefully simplify the situation for you all. With PGA Tour players really focussing on their length and now the R&A & USGA looking into limiting equipment, I know a lot of people don’t know what toContinue reading “The Distance Debate Simplified”

Forming Your Recipe

If there was a gameshow that offered £1 million for hitting a fairway with your driver, how would you attempt to do it? You’re standing on the 18th tee at Worplesdon (450y straight par 4), you have to use your driver, you have to hit the ball at least 75% of your maximal driving distanceContinue reading “Forming Your Recipe”

Winners Aren’t Always ‘The Best’ – Analysing a Champion

Last week saw the start of the 2021 European Tour season at the HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship, a Rolex Series event with a huge prize purse to play for. As always, the event attracted big names from all corners of the globe; Rory Mcilroy, Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Rose to name a few. Come Sunday, itContinue reading “Winners Aren’t Always ‘The Best’ – Analysing a Champion”

10 Things I Wish I Knew 10 Years Ago

Where were you 10 years ago? How was your golf game? 10 years ago I was preparing to embark on my university journey. A 17 year old with a seriously dodgy haircut who only really knew how to play golf, about to move to the deep south of America having never left home before…I hadContinue reading “10 Things I Wish I Knew 10 Years Ago”

Letting Go

A phrase I have found myself saying a lot whilst coaching recently is ‘let it go’. I think this has come from watching a lot of golfers play with fear, especially with the driver. I then stumbled across this picture from a fellow coaches twitter account and I thought it illustrated my point perfectly. IContinue reading “Letting Go”
