Meet Mike

Hello and welcome to my profile page that will give you a brief insight to my experience, abilities and coaching philosophies. I enjoy playing all sports but golf became my sporting passion after watching Severiano Ballesteros win his first Open Championship. From the moment I struck my first shot, I enjoyed all the challenges that golf had to offer and was hooked.

PGA PRO

Despite making many of the common mistakes that I now help others avoid, I managed to achieve a plus one handicap in 18 months and worked at Stoke Park Golf Club where I won the inaugural UK Long Driving Championship. During my time at Stoke Park, I was fortunate to meet, learn and play with many leading coaches, Tour Players and Major Champions including Bernard Langer, Sandy Lyle, Sir Henry Cotton and Sir Nick Faldo (pictured above).

I have won Regional, National and European tournaments and set several course records with a personal best low round of 60 which was 10 under. I have achieved seven holes and my last was when I returned to Stoke Park Golf Club for a charity event. I achieved my 7th hole in one on the club’s signature 7th hole and in doing so, won a VIP trip to watch the Masters.

I am as equally passionate about the play others as I am with my own game and it gives me a great deal of pleasure to help golfers at every level of play to improve their golf skills and gain a greater enjoyment from their play. There isn’t one perfect swing for everyone, but everyone has their own perfect swing and to help each person discover theirs, I deliver bespoke instruction that is easy to understand, apply and ensures that help each person makes the greatest possible improvement to their play.

To ensure analysis is carried out in the best way possible, I have a complete suite of coaching tools that include a high-speed camera, video analysis software, professional launch monitor, game improvement modules, golf simulator and software that provide the most realistic playing experiences. The many benefits of this technology apply to golfers at every level as player improvement can be measures accurately and they speed up skill acquisition by providing valuable feedback that enables golfers to gain a greater understanding and feel for their technique.

We capture swing footage in real time to analyse swing tempo and rhythm but to accurately view and study swing technique when club head speeds can reach in excess of 120 mph, we need to slow the action down with our high-speed camera that is capable of capturing 1000 frames per second.
