Richard is a fully qualified PGA Golf Professional and has a lifetime's experience in the game having represented Cornwall as a junior and adult player and playing and coaching professionally since 2004. Richard is equally happy helping beginners into the game using tried and tested simple methods to help people hit the ball for the first time, or helping more experienced players to understand their own swing and improve all aspects of their game.
For the more advanced player, Richard believes that getting the player to understand their ball flight and what the club is doing at impact to cause this, is more important than striving to build a mechanically perfect swing. In other words, there is no such thing as a perfect swing and Richard will help you learn to use the swing you already have more effectively to improve your consistency and ball flight.
Using various training methods and practice drills combined with the latest video technology will help each player understand their swing. Implementation of a clear game improvement plan, geared to the player's ability and goals, will ensure that the desired success is achieved.
