About Me:

You will never get more than 2 aspects in a lesson (30 or 60 minutes) and feel overwhelmed or like there is too much information.

I have a passion for golf and love playing and coaching, I have always loved puzzles and a golf swing is just another!

I started my training at the Cotswolds Hotel and Spa near Oxford and have completed it at Honiton in 2019.

I am excited to help members and guests reach their playing goals and increase their enjoyment within the sport, whether that be an individual lesson, a quick slice fix or sustained lessons to really get that enjoyment back.
