I prefer to avoid the one dimensional coaching method of just fault fixing. I believe knowing the player is much more important than fixing a fault. We are humans after all, not machines… so I try to get to know as much about a player as possible including their learning style (visual, auditory or kinaesthetic), their fitness and flexibility levels and how their mind works.

Every player has scope to improve by either working physically on swing mechanics, increasing their understanding of how to maximise their score, learning how to practice productively or simply increasing their confidence standing on the first tee.

There are multiple ways to tackle a golf course from Jim Furyk’s precision and accuracy method to the more artistic and natural approach used by Seve Ballesteros. The most important factors in my opinion are having a consistent pre shot routine, knowing your club distances, knowing the course, understanding your limitations, controlling your emotions and being realistic about your expectations.

Golf is a great analogy of life where we must make choices and cope with the frustration and elation that are the consequences of these choices. I try to give my clients the tools to cope with this challenge and enable them to enjoy this great game.



Starting in 2000, Colin has worked at many schools and golf clubs in Berkshire, Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire. He has devised his own unique style of coaching, getting to the heart of how the children learn and adapting to their individual needs. Colin now works with Mike Dodd at Sturminster Marshall GC to bring the fun of golf to hundreds of children.


Colin started running the Hampshire EZGO Tour in 2016. The aim is to create a fun, regional golf tour for children allowing them to experience the excitement of playing different courses and meeting other junior players.

As of 2021 we are pleased to announce our partnership with the Hampshire County Golf. Using the tour scoring as an incentive to get players to participate for the County.

Set-up in 2008 by Mike Dodd, the tour’s title sponsor is EZGO Golf Buggies who supply prizes to all participants. The events are open to all standards and special rules apply to the tour events to encourage new players.
