Golf news MLA & the European Tour

I had the privilege to spend the day at Aloha Golf Course in Marbella Wednesday 14th March, practice day. Working with MLA putters we were there to demonstrate how great the new putters are. I had the chance to catch up with some friends and players Bradley Dredge, Jose Manuel Lara and Matthew Southgate – good luck to them all for the season.

Golf news Science and Motion – Sam Putt Lab

Another addition to my coaching is the partnership with Science & Motion who invented the fantastic SAM putt lab. This is the best piece of kit on the market to help me in the diagnosis of my players putting stroke. It was invented by a scientist - Dr Christian Marquardt from Germany who now advises many coaches and players from around the world. I am proud to be one of the team and an accredited member.

Golf news Valencia Golf Federation of Spain

At the recent awards presentation for the Valencia Golf Federation several of my professional players received awards. So well done to Jordan Gibb, Liam Murray, Dani Alonso and Diego Torne. Well done lads, keep up the good work. You have pictures of the lads already on the web site.

I have been invited to become an advisor and coach within the Valencia Federation and the first training session is to be the 24th and 25th March in Valencia. I am really looking forward to meeting the players and getting to know their putting strokes.

Golf news Shaun’s Austrian Group

On the 24th February we saw the arrival of Shaun Cunningham and his team from Austria.  Shaun is a pro at a top golf course in Austria and a good bloke.  There were seven amateurs with him.  All of them had the fortune or misfortune to spend a two hours each with me for a putting lesson they will never forget.  Well done to you all.  Thank you Franzi, Mathias, ‘Doctor golf’ Axel, Christoph, Peter, Arthur and Walter.  Hopefully the plans will come off and i’ll see you in Austria soon.  Keep up the great work!

Golf news Gecko Pro Tour Event in Spain. 

Down at Gecko Pro Tour Event in Malaga last week.  Met up with Paul Netherton who runs the new tour on the Costa Del Sol.  He and his team are doing a great job and have a really good following.  Top class players are entering and putting in some good score.  Also great to meet up with Nick Lane, top bloke and someone i suggest you do not argue with.  If you are interested in learning more about the tour contact me or speak directly to Paul on – Thanks Paul and i look forward to a great working relationship.  See you on the 11th March at Marbella Country Club.

Golf news Equipment

While there i was armed with my ‘Eyes’, Video/Camera and the SAM putt lab.  It is important that i can show players exactly what they are doing and how to make sure they understand more. 

Golf news SAM putt lab

SAM putt lab is a great piece of equipment and if you are serious about your game then please try it out.  There is nothing like it and nothing to compare.  I am lucky enough to be meeting with the inventor Christian Marquardt from the German company ‘Science and Motion’ on Thursday in Majorca to get up to date with training.  I am to be their representative on the ladies tour this season and be an advanced trainer.  If anyone would like to see any information then please see the attached record from Jordan Gibb – i know he will be ok with me showing how good he is – if you need to see what they can do then visit the web site

Golf news Liam Murray from England/Spain

While in Malaga had the opportunity to make sure Liam Murray was putting well.  He struggled on the first day and after a few moments we had his set up and grip sorted.  The two photos will show how Liam lapsed into the grip of the putter being in his fingers and was causing him to Pull the ball left of the target – he was actually adding ‘hook spin’ to the ball.  A great second round 4 under – best of the day was the result.

Golf news Tom Coulson from England

Also met up with Tom Coulson.  Tom moved across to Spain a few months ago and is a great golfer and hits the balls miles.  Unfortunately, he had problems with his putting but we’ve sorted it.  The two photos show how he managed to get to a bad habit on sitting too far behind the ball.  A slight alteration as you can see in photo two, now shows Tom in a central more solid set up.  Means he is now hitting the ball out of the centre and able to add a great ball roll.  Well Done pal.

Golf news Ladies Banesto Pro Tour of Spain

Fortunately for me the ladies Banesto tour was at the same golf club a day after the Gecko tour, so, killed two birds with one stone.  Introduced myself and then met a few of the girls around the green.  Able to catch up with Rhian Wyn Thomas to make sure she is ok?  Really happy with her putting she replied, like to hear that and it showed!

Golf news Giulia Franchini from Italy

While there met with Giulia Franchini who i met at Q school at La Manga three years ago.  She has decided to go back into playing more events.  We worked on her set and approach to putting.  Yes, putting is mental but you have to have the ability to aim and set up correctly.  Well Giulia and good luck.

Golf news Barbara Genuini from France

Barbara was also there, after successfully gaining her Ladies tour card she decided to come to Malaga in preparation for the tour.  She and i worked together at Q school in December.  She is putting well but we had to make a couple of adjustments to make sure things were right.  Well done Barbara, see you at Zaragoza later in the month.

Golf news Monia Bernardo from Portugal

This is my first time to meet Monia but she is a good putter and we did a little work to establish understanding of the fundamentals.  Her pace was a little slow so we developed a plan to make it more consistent.  Well done Monia, good work and see you soon.

Golf news Allianz Pro Golf Tour

well done to the lads who went to Q school for the Allianz tour.  Excellent work and congratulations to Dani Alonso and Carlos Aguilar Quesada.

Golf news MLA Putters

i am really pleased a excited to be named as the tour representative for MLA putters from Sweden – they are a putter with a difference.  An optical effect by a line on the putter helps you to aim correctly and thus help you to set up true to the target.  Have a look at the web site for the putters i’ll be having with me by Wednesday

Golf news Carl Siddall

great to meet up with Carl Siddall who is out here at the moment working on his game in preparation for Europro Q School.  His first year back after a break and he is only 23.  Good luck ‘lad’ and make sure you are ready.
