G: Tell us about your coaching programmes?
"I try to make every session suit the particular client, making each session clear and giving them help along the way. For example, I can record videos of pupils' swings and send them over to them."
G: What one piece of advice would you give to beginners?
"Start with short clubs such as a pitching wedge, and do short chipping and pitching shots first to get the basics on striking a golf ball well before moving onto big swings."
G: If you could play a round of golf with one famous person, who would it be and why?
"Tiger, because he is the best ever."
G: What’s your favourite moment in golfing history?
