Simon's teaching philosophy
I think golf is about a consistent ball control, and the ability to have the right distance and direction with the necessary ball trajectory for each shot. This can only be achieved by hitting the ball from the centre of the clubface and having a consistent low point of the swing.
Most players who come to me for golf lessons want more regularity in their game and to be able to hit the ball further.
The truth is that every golfer's good or bad swing looks almost the same, so they are actually already consistent, but the biggest problem is in the bad swing, so there is a big difference between the best swing and the bad swing. And it is this difference that gives them the feeling that you are inconsistent.
Therefore, my first intention with my student is to make his bad shot looks better.
Most golfers already have enough club head speed to hit the ball farther, the problem is how to get that speed onto the golf ball.
So I try to match your ball speed to your club head speed.
My motto: "the golf swing should be as simple, functional and efficient as possible".
