I began having golf lessons with Paul about 4 months ago. I was a complete novice, having never played golf or picked up a golf club before. I became interested in golf as my son, daughter and husband all played. Initially Paul focused on the basics, how to hold the club, address the ball and building up my swing. As my lessons progressed Paul has further developed these areas, focusing on balance, adapting my grip and working on my swing. Paul has additionally taught me aspects of golf including understanding the rules, how to read greens, club selection, and the best approach to take. He has taught me the importance of positive thinking and mental attitude.
I have had lessons both on the range and on the course and these have given me the confidence and knowledge to be able to complete a round. I have been able to specify areas I want to develop in lessons on the course, to include chip shots, pitch shots and bunker play. On the range I have been able to focus more intensely on using the array of clubs, improving my swing and correcting any faults.
My son and daughter go to lessons with Paul with excitement and thoroughly enjoy each and every lesson. Paul understands children's minds which enables him to coach with authority but in a friendly manner. He controls the lessons and keeps the children's interest throughout each lesson. He always has a smile on his face rewards the kids when they deserve it and gives positive praise.
As a family we all have lessons with Paul weekly and we all find him approachable, friendly with a great sense of humour when appropriate whilst maintaining professional attitude. I would highly recommend Paul as a coach for players of all abilities and we all look forward to improving our game with Paul in the future.
