Short Game Coach & Advanced PGA Professional- Stuart Smith

Short Game Coach & Advanced PGA Professional- Stuart Smith

Without question this is the magical part of golf, and not the game destroyer that most golfers see the short game as. Nothing better than splashing out a bunker shot with spin to stop the ball right next to the hole, or hitting a delicate chip over a bunker and rolling up to the hole, and YES this and much more is achievable by you!

How? 

By gaining more knowledge, as knowledge is what lets golfers down. To have a good short game it just takes you to understand things like – 

The lie and what type of shot is achievable

What can go wrong

What is the correct set up and technique for each shot

Likely outcome

And much more 

Understand the above and you will have a fantastic short game, guaranteed!

So why am I different to other coaches?

I have never had a short game lesson, everything I teach is how I taught myself and my short game allowed me to play in a 72 hole tournament, hit only 25 greens in regulation and finish level par for the tournament! that is how confident I was around the greens. 

And over the years I developed a coaching method to pass my knowledge of the short game over to my students, which I believe will be like a light switch going on in your head, enabling you to surpass your expectations. 

The four areas I coach are – Putting, Chipping, Bunkers and Pitching.

I will teach you the full understanding of –

What the shot is

What you are trying to achieve 

What can go wrong (vital)

Correct set up

Correct technique

Correct equipment

I can run sessions on an individual basis or group sessions, and please go to the events page to see what’s on and where.

For any questions please call me on 07766 733560 or email stuart@stuartsmithgolfacademy.com

I look forward to improving your short game soon.

Murcia – April/May 2020

Murcia – April/May 2020

This resort is absolutely stunning, and I would say is the best hotel to date that I have organised a golf trip to. The hotel is recently fully refurbished with stunning pool facilities, and within a stones throw of the club house.

This resort has an 18 hole golf course, 6 hole academy course, 2 tier driving range with a grass tee, Chipping/bunker green and 2 putting greens which makes this a perfect venue.

You have the choice of two very different weeks, or you can choose to come along for both and enjoy the benefits of both weeks. The nearest airport is Region de Murcia International Airport – RMU

A non refundable deposit of £150pp is require to reserve your place

WEEK ONE – Pre Season Game Tune Up

This week will see you you split into two groups each day, with one group playing 18 holes on the Hacienda del Alamo course in the morning and tuition in the afternoon and the other group vice versa. The tuition over the week will cover all areas of the short game and with some tuition on driving, fairway shots and course management. (Full itinerary below)

WEEK TWO – Short Game Masterclass

This week will have a very different feel about it as you will play three times on the Hacienda del Alamo course and three times on the Saurines GC. Tuition wise, this will be an advanced week focusing mainly on Chipping and Pitching with little bits on Bunkers and Putting. (Full itinerary below)

All transfers

Entrance to 2020 Turkish Airlines Open

All tuition

Unlimited range balls

This is going to be a very exciting trip, where not only will play two fantastic courses with one having previously held the Turkish Airlines Open, but on the second day, you will be going to the 2020 Turkish Airlines Open and watch some of the best golfers in the world. You will be staying at the 5* Sirene Belek hotel on an All Inclusive Basis and playing five rounds of golf. (4 rounds on Pasha GC and one round on the PGA Sultan GC)

On this trip I am going to be teaching you how to improve your scores under pressure, and how to identify what’s poor about your game, as this knowledge is what will lead to you shooting better scores.

To make it competitive amongst the group, I will be running an eclectic over the week (Pasha course) with an overall winners prize (men’s and ladies) plus daily prizes. By running an eclectic you will see which holes can/need to be improved on, which in turn, will put you under pressure. Over the week I will teach you how to improve on these holes which will start by knowing which part of your game is letting you down, and working on that part.

All tee times will be in the morning, leaving the coaching/practice for the afternoons. Coaching will be split into times for specific areas of the game – Driving, fairway shots, pitching, chipping, bunkers & putting. You can choose to attend as many as you like, but I would recommend that you attend the session on the area of your game which let you down on your last round. That way, you are constantly improving the weakest part of your game and therefore constantly improving.
