I’ve been a golf pro now for 37 yrs and I’ve had some swing help along the way from some of our most recognised coaches, but today’s lesson I had from Willow may have been the best lesson I’ve ever taken.

I have come away from my lesson energised and excited about what might be around the corner after seeing such a dramatic change to my old swing in only one lesson.

I can’t wait to have a follow up visit with Willow to keep this improvement process going.

A note from David:

“I am dedicated to assisting golfers off all ages and abilities to “Live to Play Better Golf” My goal is to ensure students learn life long skills to improve their golf and not just receiving tips of the day.  

  • Identify areas of improvement in entire game
  • Collecting game & technique data is important
  • Understand concepts, not follow a set of instructions to try and accomplish without knowing WHY. 
  • Every student is unique.  Everyone has different movement patterns and learning styles.
  • Results are important

I would love the opportunity to assist you with your game.  Enjoying the challenge of improvement and enjoyment of playing the game better.”
