We partner with aspiring golfers to create the pathways to being the best they can be using tried and tested methods. We aim to create a person of sound character who is academically strong as well as a robust and capable golfer.
We fuse science and art to create a fact-based roadmap for each individual. We use evidence, not opinion-based coaching to influence performance. Allied to that, our attention focuses in on skill development for each individual. We operate in a POD system where students work as individuals within an overarching program, which allows flexibility and individualization of the program.
Using an array of the latest technology at our disposal including TrackMan, 3D Golf BioDynamics, BodiTrak, Video, Force Plates and SAM PuttLab – we research facts on the player’s game. Only then can we create a fact-based roadmap based not on opinion, but on sound evidence and data.
The evidence gathered in the benchmarking phase allows us to make an informed choice of corrections, rather than an opinion-generated one. As the name suggests, blueprinting is an individual approach to improvement and performance.
Following a periodized training schedule which morphs seamlessly through the phases of technical, blending, competitive, rest and refection training, we work on controlling the ball and acquiring the necessary skills to have the tools needed to play tournament golf at the highest level.
Physical screening is a vital starting point for the physical fitness program. Golf is a sport that requires strength, mobility, stability and range of motion. The screening process highlights limitations in any of these areas, allowing the coach to generate a personalized program focusing not on gym-vanity but on creating a fully functioning, mobile and strong golf athlete.
The glue that binds the whole thing together is the mental approach. Our program has four levels. One, a curriculum, classroom-based course. This forms the basis of the on-tee mental training, which in turn leads to tournament mental training at our competitive events. Character is just as important to us as the golfer, so we have a character program which looks at giving-back and the enrichment of the lives of others.
