    Re: Dando and Homer coaching today

    Well Paul was a joy to work with and thankfully had the patience of a saint!

    after watching my pathetic attempts at chipping and pitching Paul suggested trying to keep my right arm/wrist locked to avoid flipping the club at impact, gripping down the club, hands forward, keeping the speed through impact using my hands and rotating my chest.

    despite it feeling completely alien the improvement was great although I still had the odd chunk or thin.

    we tried different clubs, lies and distances and after a while I got used to the technique and my confidence grew hitting from 10-75 yards.

    im so glad I got this opportunity and thanks to GM for picking me

    I had 2 hours with him for golf monthly in March and he knocked 3 shots of my handicap in the next month of playing. Not been back to see him though.
    No but we had a chat after the lesson finished while the guys were setting the camera's up and came up with a plan to keep him updated and we're going to book an extended lesson to follow up. Great guy, very friendly and patient and easy to see why he's a top 25 coach

    Yep agree, great guy. Good luck to you, in very capable hands if you stick with Paul.

    He took his life in his hands at one point standing about 50 yards out asking me to hit so he could catch the ball

    That mate sounds really positive. You now have the winter to work on it.

    Im actually looking forward to practicing my short game now. Think it'll be a mix of range time (mats aren't great but it all helps) and maybe early mornings in local park
