AT LAST A RESULTS ORIENTATED COACH!
‘Chris gets really focused on what you want to get out of him as a coach. In my case I just wanted to shoot lower scores (who doesn’t) and I didn’t have any set idea of what needed to be worked on to make progress.We started with a playing lesson which allowed chris to see what was happening with my swing on course but more importantly how I was thinking/planning my way around. The initial session allowed us to come up with a plan to go forward with; some technical and mental areas. Chris uses Trackman on the range when he thinks it will help but he is keener to engage with the player on course or on the chipping green – as he says ‘the closer we can make our practise to real play the quicker progress is made’. I have had lessons with quite a few golf pros in the past and I did not really make any progress despite trying hard to work on their advice. I can’t speak highly enough of chris, he won’t just give you the same old half hour lesson, take your money and leave you to it. He has really helped me get more out of my original game and is also working to improve my technique from chipping, pitching through to iron shots and driver. The outcome is that my greens hit has improved from 30% to 50% and I have gone from a scoring average of 84 to my last 4 rounds being 77,74,74,77 and still lots of areas to improve. I can’t wait for the new season. Alan Matchett.
