Becoming and sustaining a champion in any sport requires much more than technical mastery. It requires recognition and attainment of a wide set of traits, skills and attributes, all supported through a different style of player-coach engagement. David Brooks has extensive experience in player development not only for technical excellence, he also has the practical and theorectical grounding to enhance the many other elements so critical to sustainable golfing success.
Although we have number of innovative methods and systems in place, we don’t prescribe one solution as a fit for all. We prefer to meet and discuss your requirements on an individual basis, please contact the Academy to organise an informal meeting with David.
