Teaching Philosophy

"There is no single ideal golf swing, whatever level you play at. Impact and resulting ball flight are key, so I work with our advanced technologies (TrackMan and SAM PuttLab) to analyse performance using statistics to achieve results."

Tim’s Go To Club

“My Titleist SM10 Vokey wedge and Scotty Cameron putter, are always in my bag. These are my scoring clubs and always have an impact on lowering my playing score.”

Tim’s Golf Hero

“Tiger Woods, is for me, no doubt the greatest of all time. Every time I see a Tiger stat from his years of dominance it blows my mind.“
