Golf Coaches Profiles

 Josh Smith


Having completed his traineeship at Twin Waters and Logan, Josh went on to be the Head Professional at Riverlakes Golf Course in Brisbane. After several years there he decided that teaching was more his passion. So impressive are his skills as an instructor, that Tom Linskey invited him to co-host his Australian Golf Schools events in Australia and Italy with him. Along with this Josh has had experience playing throughout Asia and Australia. Josh has assisted many of his Professional peers with their golf games, but is equally as comfortable helping beginners, kids, ladies and gents.
His area of expertise is clearly in the realm of short game, and anyone wishing to sharpen their edge in this department should seek him out for his help.

Paul Williamson

 

Are you trying to break 100, or 90, or 80 but feel stuck at a level? 

Are you frustrated and angry at putting in time and effort into practice only to still be shooting the same scores? 

Are you sick to death of spending money on new clubs hoping they could be the ‘secret’ to only to find out they are not? 

Do you want to learn to play ‘golf’ rather than learn a ‘golf swing’

Do you want lower scores but just don’t have the time to practice due to work, kids, life etc? 

Have you had countless lessons that have still not improved your scores? 

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions then coaching from Paul Williamson will help.

 

Paul is a Certified PGA of Australia member - Advanced in Coaching and Management and is now based at Emerald Lakes Golf Coaching Centre on the Gold Coast, Australia

He is a lower golf scores specialist. He has been coaching regular golfers just like YOU to lower scores for the past 20+ years all over Australia and Overseas. He has played in hundreds of pro-ams and corporate golf days with thousands of regular golfers just like YOU. This experience has refined his ability to quickly diagnose why you are not shooting the scores you want on the course. He will take you out for a 9 hole playing assessment where he can measure where the true strengths and weaknesses are in your game. He will then give you some simple strategies and thinking that you can apply straight away on the course, and during practice. If followed, these strategies will reduce your scores! 

If you think this kind of coaching may be what you need, then please feel free to call Paul to have a conversation about what your challenges are.
