I first picked up a club following my dad around a course in the early 90's. Wasn't really that interested until a certain Tiger came along and also realized I wasn't going to be a soccer player. Around the age of 12, I was invited to play with the juniors at a local muni, I made a bunch of new friends and started to realize I could play a bit.

Fast forward to 2004 when I broke my arm playing soccer. I realized how much I missed golf and wanted to make it my career. I got the cast off, got my head down and found myself on a golf scholarship in South Florida in 2006. This was a big period for me as I realized I maybe wouldn't be winning the Masters in the future, questioned a lot of received coaching and felt at home in the USA.

After "chasing the dream" for almost a decade, I found my speciality in coaching. I've been lucky enough to have worked alongside some great coaches, been coached by some of the world's best and witnessed some of the worst coaching. These experiences along with a bunch of reading and plenty of hours on the practice tee have helped me figure out how to approach and help all individuals. Pro's, amatuers, girls, guys, old and young have all trusted that I might be able to help their golf. I feel honored to have met so many and offered advice.... and if my advice doesn't work, well at least you'll make a new, cool British friend!

Cheers, Nick
