A great team of forward thinking Coaches!

PMG Academy Coaches are recruited largely on one overriding factor. Their passion to improve players and develop skills to take their clients game to the next level. They are all Trackman  users, they believe in the PMG ethos of the 5 P's of Winning Golf and constantly upskill their coaching with Professional development.

While PMG Coaches help golfers of all ages and standards, we are very proud to have Coaches that have helped County Champions, International Amateurs, winners on all of Europe's major Professional Tours and even the Olympic Games.

Better than that we believe in constantly reviewing what our clients require, to be ahead of the curve in this ever changing game. We are here to help you both during and after your coaching sessions with our online service.
