The Game Changer

With only two months until the 2018 golf season kicks off NOW is the time to assess your game to know exactly where you can make improvements before handicap counting competitions commence. Do not wait for me to rescue your game mid summer, be ambitious and look to start the season in April in winning form!

The Game Changer package is the perfect M.O.T to identify your weaknesses and to give you the fixes which will save you shots. Here’s what you get:

  • Upon completion of the 4 holes we will go to the area that you performed the weakest in – so this could be driving range, putting green or short game area. You will go home with the knowledge of how to score better.
  • You will receive video analysis and a comprehensive email summary of the lesson so that you will never forget the key Points that make you play your best golf.
