”25 years of coaching at all levels have allowed me not only to get a complete understanding of the game of golf but more important to get to know myself better as a person and therefore as a coach.
Thanks to the help of sport sciences and new technologies I am able to get to know my students better and therefore help them reach their goals in the most efficient way possible. The work has to be clear and simple, always respecting the fundamentals of the golf game. Our brain and our body learn through experiences not through the quantity of information dispatched no matter how accurate the information is.
