'I get a tremendous buzz from helping golfers of all levels to improve and enjoy their golf to the best of their ability' Nigel commented.
He adopts a holistic approach that encompasses sports psychology, fitness, diet and biomechanics as well as the natural feel of the golf swing itself. Every golfer is an individual with different needs, physical capabilities, desires & lifestyles and every pupil is treated as such.
In April Nigel and Bigbury were appointed as the first Accredited Explanar Centre in the South West. Explanar is a wonderful swing trainer that 'Turns swing thoughts into swing feelings' and it speeds up the learning process significantly. See the Explanar page.
