David has been fully qualified for 22 years and been one of the Professionals at Sidcup for 21 of those years. When working with his golfers David wants them to improve both their game and level of enjoyment. This is done by improving their knowledge of their own game and what is required to reach the level they wish to get to.
Through his own drive for improvement David uses the latest technology called Flightscope to help golfers develop their swing. Flightscope is a 3D club and ball tracking system which will give you the most accurate way to measure and see the golf swing.
As well as improving the swing it is important to have your mind in the correct place, to do this David offers a series of 7 mind techniques, called New Golf Thinking. By improving your mind you allow your body to work in balance, making a more co-ordinated swing.
One of the key areas David likes to spend time with his golfers is on the course so he can see exactly how the players emotions and technique hold up on the course. When having a lesson on the course you will get a shot-by-shot breakdown using the latest way of tracking your shots, David will laser every shot to give the most comprehensive statistics of your game, this will allow you to so see where your strengths and weaknesses are in relation to your level of play.
If you wish to work on your short game David has developed his own method to read putts which has gone down well with his lessons, reducing the number of putts especially players 3 putts, David believes without the ability to read putts it is difficult to create a consistent putting stroke as you are not sure what is the correct line to start the ball on.
Pitching, Bunker Play and Chipping are also available.
David teaches all playing levels, from beginners to professionals, and all of his techniques can be adapted to suit you.
