“Steve produced improvements in my game that were so dramatic that I would not have believed it was possible” Cam Lavac, Editor at Luxury Travel magazine.


After our last lesson, the next game was the best ball striking I have ever had in my life. It was amazing. The swing is feeling wonderful.

Peter Cohen, Sanctuary Cove member

Your analysis and instruction, over a relatively short period, has made a massive difference to my game.

In the lessons, over 4 months, including that great putting lesson, I have been able to drop my handicap from 18 to 12 and feel that with some more practice and maybe a tune-up lesson or two, to keep reinforcing the swing changes, I will see that magic single figure handicap this year.


To me, the most obvious evidence of improvement is that a bad day is now only playing to 15 or 16 which is very encouraging, and I can regularly par one of the nine's in a round.

I happily recommend you as being a coach that will work with the player to make a long-term difference, not a quick fix, pat on the back lesson. Many thanks and I look forward to continuing to work together.
