Hello fellow golfers…
…and those interested in taking up the wonderful game of golf! I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell you a little about my golfing background.
I am the Head Pro at Witney Lakes. I am an Advanced PGA Professional, and this accreditation signifies that I am within the top 6% of 7,000 qualified PGA Professionals.
I have been coaching both male and female golfers of all ages and abilities since 2003. I have a passionate interest in Sports Psychology, and given my enthusiasm in this area, I became a certified Master Mind Factor Coach and PSYCH-K® Facilitator.
I also have Titleist Performance Institute level 1 & 2 certifications. This accreditation covers both golf-specific fitness and techniques in overcoming physical limitations affecting the golf swing.
I can honestly say that I absolutely love my job!
Playing career highlights…
Within four years of taking up the game, I managed to get my handicap down to Scratch. I maintained a handicap of Scratch for seven years.
I was runner up in the Ladies Italian Open (1998), runner up in the English Ladies Intermediates (1998), runner up in the English Girls Championships (1996), and winner of the Yorkshire Girls Championships (1996).
I represented England at junior and senior level in the Home Internationals, and I was an England Elite Squad member from the age of 15 to 22.
My best results as a professional were coming 6th in the Nedbank South African Masters (2003) and I also won the Tartleton Ladies Pro-Am in Spain (2015).
Coaching is my passion! I am committed to continuing to develop my knowledge in order to help my pupils as much as I possibly can.
With the use of video analysis, FlightScope launch monitor technology, kinaesthetic learning and also engaging in two-way communication about what YOUR body is capable of, it is possible for us to find the very best results for your game.
Videos and reminders of what to work on can be uploaded onto my CoachNow account for you to access after your lesson. This learning support tool is available to you 24/7, to jog your memory of what we discussed during your lesson.
In short, I try to create a relaxed and enjoyable learning environment, where my pupils leave with greater confidence in themselves, and a clear idea of what they need to work on.
