• Overview

    There is a time to concentrate on technique and a time to understand how to make the best use of it on the course. Combining technique and an understanding of your golf game however, makes for playing your best and most consistent golf.  We should never forget why we play either – enjoyment!

    Playing good consistent golf involves far more than technique alone, albeit, without sound technique, hitting golf shots with consistency is not likely.

    The UK Golf & Coaching Weekends at Staverton Park, Daventry are aimed at giving you a more rounded picture of all aspects of the game, whereas the David Short UK Golf Academy is a focus purely on technique.  In addition to technical aspects we will discuss equipment, good practice, practice routines, mental issues and course management.

    My long time colleague Barney Puttick and I look forward to spending a few days with you, sharing our many years of experience of coaching golfers of all levels to help you enjoy this wonderful and most frustrating of games.  Click for objectives of the UK Golf & Coaching
