My Coaching Philosophy

My goal is to help facilitate you on what you want and what your goals are. Whether it’s to break 100, or to have more control around the greens. I am a strong believer of understanding what the client wants, and not what I want as a coach. As long as you understand what your goals are I will help and guide you on your journey with a proper plan in place and discuss with you what we would need to do to reach that goal. I am very open to ideas, thoughts and feels that you might have so please continue to ask ‘why’ as I believe if we both understand the process, we can get there quicker.

How do I help you with your learning process?

In my opinion communication is key, I will find as many ways possible to help you understand why this is the source of the problem and to guide and make sure you understand so that you can become self-sufficient to check on yourself. You will be provided with a written programme and some video analysis with voice over if needed so you can visually see your improvements and to understand it better.

History

I have been coaching for the past 5 years, 2 years was with NZstargolf which is a company that’s based in Hawkes Bay. It’s a rather small company that provided me with the resources to coach beginner golfers from junior holiday programmes to school programmes and also adult beginner programmes. It was from that moment that I realised that my passion was to coach as It gave me such a rush and good emotions when I could see someone whether it’s a beginner adult or a beginner junior that has that light bulb moment and hits a great shot. From there I moved to Taupo Golf Club for about a year and a half, where I started up the First Tee Programme in Taupo. This programme teaches kids life skills and leadership through golf. It showed me that golf is a great sport that extends out more than a game and that it influences lives and makes the youth of today better adults in the future with the nine core values respect, responsibility, honesty, confidence, perseverance, judgment, sportsmanship, courtesy, and integrity. An opportunity arose to go to Auckland and to work and coach at the North Shore Golf Club. It was from there that I focused on one on one lessons and to create the care factor of understanding what the client wants and to create a programme based on their goals. That position lasted about one year and a half. Today I am based at the Takapuna Driving Range as part of the foreGolf team and I am very excited about what lies ahead.

What I will offer you

My point of difference is that I work with you to understand what it is that you are wanting to achieve, then setting out a program to help you facilitate achieving your goals. I will the exhaust all resources to make sure you are well supported.

Referral Reward System

Referral business is by far the most important way to connect with new clients.  Its extremely important to me that I acknowledge and thank those who recommend my services. I will offer you a FREE 30 minute one on one lesson with me as a Thank You for each new person you refer to me.
