Chris Brook

Chris is our resident AA PGA International Golf Coach. He coaches tournament professionals and serious amateurs. Chris graduated from the PGA Training Academy in 1995. Since then he has set out to become a great instructor of the golf mechanics. His extensive knowledge of biomechanics and kinematic efficiency has steadily built him a reputation for being an instructor for both tournament professionals and elite amateurs.

His keenness to develop some of the future champions focuses him on using logical and visual techniques to help produce the “complete golfer”. Chris’s coaching methods vary whether you’re a feel or technical golfer. He will coach you whilst on tour or at his coaching facility in the UK.

He uses all the latest analysis equipment including K-Vest, TRACKMAN and Video. If you are a tournament professional or serious amateur looking for a different approach then contact Chris.

Peter Thompson

Peter is our resident Fellow of the Professional Golfer’s Association. He has taught many thousands of golfers including:

  • England’s leading amateur of all time.
  • County champions.
  • Professional winners of the Australian, Portuguese and Kenyan Open Championships.
  • Amateur golfers of all standard who have won innumerable competitions or have simply enjoyed improving their own standards.

Peter Thompson’s philosophy is based on over forty years experience of teaching golf. It recognises that every golfer has different ambitions and is different both physically and mentally, and therefore requires individual tuition. A written report will be given after each lesson.

In 2000, Peter began using a computerised system using two cameras from different angles. This system whilst similar to his previous system allows direct comparisons to world class golfers and monitors the progress of the pupil from their first lesson. Your lesson can be recorded to a DVD and/or VCR tape.
