We use the very latest in swing and stroke analysis hardware/software to ensure that there are no assumptions in our coaching. The same systems used at tour level give us all of the information needed to quickly identify issues and monitor the process whilst rectifying them.

Our Titleist Performance Institute certified coaches will use methods proven on tour (currently 48 of the worlds top 50 are advised by TPI certified coaches) to assess you as an individual and help you develop a technique suited to your mobility.

SGA coaching team

Good coaching is about understanding that everyone is different. We pride ourselves on our ability to communicate with any individual, whether an absolute beginner, or elite level golfer, in order for them to achieve their own goals. We appreciate too that individual coaching initially can be a daunting experience for some, so strive to ensure a friendly and relaxed environment to learn in.
