Presentation: at the heart of coaching.

What coaching means to me as a young instructor, how I have developed my coaching beliefs/philosophy as well as who/what has influenced it.

How I have used my belief system to build a framework which grows my business and ensures that I am giving each golfer what they are actually looking for from our sessions.

I will lead into how that allows me to choose the appropriate “game like training” exercises I may uses with different clients.
