After school I was fortunate enough to be sent to a golf academy where I was able to immerse myself into my passion and really perfect my skills of golf.

While been coached there it took me almost 3 years to finely tune my back swing,  having the knowledge now and studying through the PGA  of South Africa with Steve Cottingham as my mentor, I would have perfected it in just 3 lessons. This is when I realized where I wanted to be.  Teaching guiding and sharing my knowledge and skills for those who are wanting to learn and perfect their own game.

In 2013 I travelled to Henry Griffitts in Australia, where I became qualifies club fitter.  Here I understood the importance of lie angle, shaft and loft.  When coaching I have realized the importance of having the correct equipment,  students are not realizing with the wrong equipment it makes it so much harder to improve your game and much longer to reach your goals.

It is so important when your 8 year old is taking up the game that he/she has the correct clubs fitted, and if you are thinking of making a career out of the game you have taken them through the right path to reach this goal easier.

Teaching kids every afternoon I try to keep the law of the swing as simple as possible   teaching them the basics and working with each child individually and concentrating on their specific needs.

I strongly believe keeping the teaching method as simple as possible and making sure the swing is kept on plane makes hitting the ball a lot easier. I also apply these methods to my adult students.
