Address & Posture
Every shot has an Address & Posture Position and every shot has two forms of Balance, namely Static Balance that creates a foundation of Angles & Lines for a Balanced Swing Motion to perform from. Therefore the Address & Posture is the most important position in any golf shot especially when considering its a Static (Still) and Controllable Position! Checkout this all important Lesson Series that gives clarity to 5 key fundamental positions within every Shot to understand the importance of applying these positions correctly to suit the Shot, the Club and the Lie!

Chip & Run
Sometimes getting the ball on the ground quickly can greatly reduce risk in the shot that ultimately widens the margin of error to achieve consistent Shot Success. With this in mind a 'Chip & Run Shot' is one of the simplest but under used shots in golf today. Within this lesson series I'll explain how to incorporate this simple BUT effective Shot into your Game by using it where ever possible to reduce 'Risk in the Shot' that will ultimately improve your scoring results!

Playing from a Greenside Bunker can sometimes be a troubling experience that if not checked can possibly damage confidence and flow into other areas of your golf game. Within this Lesson Series the main focus will be on basic and fundamental points & positions that I'll endeavour to combine with a positive 'CAN DO' mindset to achieve shot success. If you walk into a Bunker believing you 'CAN DO' the chances are you 'WILL DO !!' Checkout the growing number of Bunker Drills & Games in the GP Video library designed to benefit your game!
A Little Bit About Ian
My coaching philosophy is very simple!!
Every shot has an Address & Posture, which is the starting position created before any Swing Motion takes place and each shot has two forms of Balance, namely Static (Still) Balance and Balance in Motion (Swing Motion).
Static Balance creates a vertical foundation of angles & lines for a Balance Swing Motion to perform from. Therefore the all-important Address & Posture Position must be created correctly to suit the Shot, the Club and the Lie!
If this Positioning together with relevant Static Balance Points has been incorrectly set to suit the chosen shot the Hands will instinctively manipulate Swing Motion around the failing point to try and re-align balance.
Typically 'Grip Pressure' increases thus causing tension in the Hands to travel through the wrists and up the arms that activates a tightening of stronger muscles causing a breakdown of an efficient and sequenced Swing Motion!
Understanding and applying the correct Address & Posture Position together with the correct 'Static Balance Points' to suit the chosen Shot is essential to achieve Shot Success!
If I compare my coaching philosophy to building a House it can't be built from the roof down it's built from the ground up. Therefore if the Address & Posture Position (Foundation) is incorrectly set to suit the chosen shot I'll guarantee manipulation in the Hand & Arm Swing and the Club-face (Roof) when returning the Club to the ball at impact!
As a coach my focus will always start by checking and correcting any relevant position or balance point within the Address & Posture before looking at any type of Swing Motion or any type of Club-face delivery to the ball at Impact.
I've purposefully instilled my coaching philosophy into every area of Golfing Partner for you to benefit from - Please Enjoy
