Simon Dewsbury Golf
British PGA Professional with over 20 years experience in all aspects of the game. Coached, Caddied and Played on Tour, so can relate to the highest levels, while also remembering that I didn’t turn Professional the first day I hit a golf ball, and can also break down the game to simple concepts for beginners and everyone in between.
Seeing students realise and understand the changes needed in a “eureka” moment when they feel a difference in their swing and can control the ball better makes my day.
when students then transfer the skill set from the range to the course and give me feedback that they’re enjoying the game again and to a better level is the icing on the cake.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Mentoring Leslie Cloots on the Symetra Tour and Caddying for her at the LPGA Symetra Tour Championship was fantastic, seeing her develop beyond college golf to the Professional ranks is thrilling.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Find someone you feel comfortable with and trust that they can explain the game and swing concepts to you in a way you easily understand. There has to be a positive bond between both student and coach otherwise the information being passed on won’t be fully understood or trusted to be implemented to make positive changes.
