Andy is a UKPGA member and currently lives in England, where he graduated in 2011 with an Applied Golf Management Degree from the University of Birmingham and also represented the golf team. He worked at the Evian Masters Golf Course in France, Egypt, Doral in Miami, with the Titleist Performance Institute in California, with Nike Golf Junior Summer Camps as their only European Coach in their flagship location at Pebble Beach, as well as at The Open Championship. Andy also spent eight months coaching on a cruise ship, which gave him the chance to work in more than 30 countries and travel and work with many of the best in the business to constantly improve his coaching. Andy's greatest desire is to help golfers reach their dreams and to enjoy the process! He teaches because he knows the difference golf can make in the lives of others, and he wants to make real differences in the lives of those he works with.
I believe that golfers can always improve when they know what they are trying to do. Unfortunately, more often than not, they do not! My players leave with a better understanding of this, which leads to more desire in practice sessions and ultimately quick and lasting improvements. By guiding a player, rather than instructing, I have reached the best results and made the learning process fun. My coaching revolves around the player in front of me. I believe that everybody is different and swing styles vary greatly. What is important and is common among all of the greats are the true fundamentals, seen at impact.
“Andy fixed my game from a push hook or a push fade in 18 holes. I have never changed my swing as quickly as I did with my new understanding. The second round I played with Andy, I shot 76. Almost every shot I played was dead straight or a slight fade. I played in a tournament the next weekend and I came in ninth place, as the swing thoughts that Andy taught me helped me score well. He is a great teacher.”
“Andy’s coaching is excellent, with no exception. He always thought about the specific needs of everyone and we definitely appreciated very much the time we spent with him. He could even cope with difficult golfers with lots of questions, such as myself!”
