Dean has been teaching golf in the Wellington area for over ten years. A PGA member since 2009, he left his position as Assistant Professional in 2011 to follow his passion for teaching. He is now one of the most in-demand golf coaches in Wellington. He teaches everyone from absolute beginners to some of the best players in the area.
Dean's teaching philosophy is not based on any one swing model.
Dean believes in physics. There are a lot of ways to hit a golf ball; everyone has their own unique signature to their swing. "Swing your swing I say."
Dean creates a fun and relaxed environment where students learn what has to happen, and how to practice in an efficient manner.
He is not just a swing guru, either. Dean works on the total package – full swing, short game, mental game, club analysis, course management and even physical fitness.
Dean likes to specialise in Junior golf, He uses the Operation 36 program aimed at getting players to shoot par or better for 9 holes!
