All tuition will be tailored to suit the capabilities of the individuals, whilst the group will be kept to a maximum of eight to allow Lee to deal with each participant on a personal level as well as in an a small group environment.

Coaching will take place on six days, areas covered will include:


The importance of the correct set up with all clubs. The golf swing simplified – how to hit it straighter and further more consistently.

Bunker play: basic principles plus dealing with awkward lies & stances, chip shots, lob shots and chip & run shots, from flat and sloping lies, Green reading, long and short putting, pitching.

The Mind Game
