Hi and welcome to Golfing Partner, where you'll find a wide range of FREE & Premium Golf Lessons to view that have a strong focus on fundamental points and positions, thus creating a foundation for a Swing to perform from. For example every shot has an Address & Posture, which is the starting position created before ANY Swing takes place ALSO every 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 Balanced Swing Motion to perform from, therefore the Address & Posture must be created correctly to suit the Shot, the Club and the Lie before any Swing Motion is made!
Checkout the 'OnLine Lesson' tab in the menu bar or simply choose a one of the picture tabs, listed below, to open up a series of helpful and informative golf lessons. Alternatively checkout the unique 'Fault Finder' that has been purposefully designed to give qualified explanation to common swing faults that typically cause those problematical Ball Flights or Ball Strikes.
Each tutorial can be viewed on a wide range of devices such as Mobile Phones, iPads, Tablets, LapTops, PC's etc... Please Note - To view any Premium Content a 'Sign Up' is required that will automatically remove the padlock shown on your chosen lesson, this will also give you Unlimited Access to ALL other Premium Lessons for the duration of your 'Sign Up' term.

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. 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!
The Golf Swing
A 'Golf Swing' works and performs from the ground up and I'm going to compare it to building a House. If the Foundation (Address & Posture) is poorly set I’ll guarantee it'll be wrong at the Roof (Club-Face). Poor positioning at Address creates manipulation in the Hand & Arm Swing that typically increases Grip Pressure thus causing the players skill to be re-directed to save the shot rather than it being applied to maximise the shot! If it's wrong at the ground I'll guarantee it'll be wrong at the Club-Face!!
Having an effective Pitching Game not only creates scoring opportunities it also helps to maintain scoring momentum in the round. Within this Lesson Series I'll firstly explain how to work a Pitch Shot Out by using all the information the Shot is offering. Focus will then turn to Addressing the ball correctly to suit the shot, the Club and the type of Swing Motion to be used. The 3rd Lesson will focus on making a committed Swing Motion to deliver the Club-Face to the Ball to get the Ball to perform to suit the chosen shot.
The Putting Stroke is an integral part of any golfers game as it has the most impact on Scoring that ultimately improves performance. Within this 3 Lesson Series I'll explain the importance of working the Putt Out by firstly looking from the Hole back to the Ball to understand how the Ball needs to come to rest. Lesson 2 will focus on creating the Address & Posture Position that creates a foundation of Angles & Lines for the Putting Stroke to perform from. Lesson 3 will focus on committing fully to making a Stroke that gets the Ball to roll efficiently along the Putting Line.

Maintaining scoring momentum in the round is a key facet that ultimately leads to lower scores! Within this Series of 3 Lessons I'll firstly explain how to Work the Shot Out by using all the information the Shot is offering to visually see the Shot before it is played. Lesson 2 focusses on creating the Address & Posture Position that creates a foundation of Angles & Lines to suit the chosen shot. Lesson 3 focusses on making a committed Swing Motion to deliver the Club-face efficiently to the Ball to achieve shot success.

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!
Ian's Coaching Philosophy !!
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 Balanced Swing Motion to perform from. Therefore the Address & Posture Position must be created correctly to suit the Shot, the Club and the Lie before any Swing Motion is made!
If this Positioning has been incorrectly set the Hands will instinctively manipulate the Swing around the failing area to try and re-align balance.
Also 'Grip Pressure' typically increases thus causing tension in the Hands to travel through the wrists, up the arms that activates a tightening of stronger muscles causing a breakdown of efficient and sequenced Swing Motion!
Therefore understanding and applying the correct Address & Posture Position together with the correct 'Static Balance Points' too the chosen Shot is essential to achieve Shot Success!!
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.
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 will occur in the Hand & Arm Swing that effects the Club-face (Roof) when returning back 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 !!
