Grant has been teaching golf professionally for over 15 years and has been based at The World of Golf since 2008. He undertook and completed his PGA training whilst at World of Golf and became one of our Senior teaching Professionals in 2014. During this time he has delivered in excess of 10,000 hours of lessons giving him a vast experience in coaching players of all abilities. Grant prides himself on being able to help players achieve their goals whilst maintaining a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
Full Swing
Through his combination of a high level of technical knowledge and the use of the latest technology Grant will help you to understand and improve your swing as quickly as possible. High speed video will be used in every lesson to help you gain a visual picture of where you are presently and where you need to get to. A Trackman launch monitor will also be used in all lessons to help you gain a deeper understanding of what the club is doing throughout impact to produce your ball flights. Having both video and Trackman running at the same time makes the learning process infinitely faster. Grant has also spent extensive time with the Titleist Performance Institute in the USA giving him a good understanding of how the body effects the swing. He is qualified to give TPI physical screens to give you a further understanding of why you swing the way you do and what you would need to do to improve. At the end of every lesson you will receive a detailed email with your swing videos, Trackman data and a voice over explaining the changes required.
Short Game
Grant has gone out of his way to learn from some of the best short game teachers in the world. James Sieckmann from America and James Ridyard from the UK (two internationally renowned short game teachers) have both heavily influenced his teaching. Grant feels that to improve one’s short game the player must first understand the basic concepts, and in particular, the main differences between the full swing and the short game. Video footage, training aids and drills will be the keys to improvement.
Learning from the best putting teachers has helped Grant to understand the finer points of the “game within a game” that is putting. Stan Utley, James Sieckmann and Dave Pelz have all helped to shape Grant’s teaching and give him a better understanding of what’s required to improve. Video, training aids and drills will be used to help the learning process.
On Course Lessons 
On course lessons are the ideal way for Grant to make sure your game is transferring from the range environment to the golf course, which can be a tricky thing to do.. All aspects of your game will be looked at from course management through to your short game and putting. Grant will video many of your shots with an accompanying voice over explaining what he would like you to work on to improve. The videos will be sent to you after the lesson via WhatsApp.

A little bit about me:

My Professional Golfing career started in 2009, when I achieved a handicap of + 2. This low handicap afforded me the opportunity to play on the Professional Tours in South Africa and in the UK.
Furthermore, I’ve coached Professionals playing on the European Tour , which allowed me to gain invaluable experience of golf at a high level, as well as taught me the value of a strong mental game and course management, which I always share with my students during on-course lessons.

Teaching Philosophy

I offer unique Step-by-Step Coaching Program individually designed for every student, guaranteed to give you results. The aim is to get the
student to understand their swing mechanics, where it goes wrong and how to practice to improve it. Most important how to implement those changes on a golf course in a pressured environment.

Additionally, I make use of the latest technology to help you understand your golf game even better; Foresight GC Quad and slow motion video capture, to name a few. After every lesson you will receive a detailed video, explaining what we practised and giving you drills to help you on your way between sessions.

I have coached hundreds of students, from juniors and beginners to advanced players and Tour Professionals. Whatever level of golfer you are, I will help you reach your goals!

Teaching Philosophy

“Teaching is more than imparting knowledge, it is inspiring change. Learning is more than absorbing facts, it is acquiring understanding”. – William Arthur Ward

My coaching ethos is not to just explain and demonstrate what to change but involve the student with relevant training aids so they can understand, feel and repeat the process of what’s changing within their swing. With the use of my wide selection of training aids combined with launch monitor data and video technology, I can help you see the change and feel the change to seal the change.
I use one of the leading teaching applications called ‘Golf Coach’. After each lesson you will receive a detailed analysis and comparison along with audio feedback summarising what we have achieved within the lesson.
Please don’t hesitate in getting in contact to either simply introduce yourself and/or discuss potential lesson plans / packages with the option of tailoring on-course tuition within these packages.

Kevin has joined the World of Golf London with a wealth of enthusiasm and a career full of experience in coaching new golfers to spearhead our “Learn to Play Golf Free” campaign.

He has a unique style geared solely to making the difficult task of learning to play golf as easy as possible, for both adults and kids, and the feedback from his customers is universally positive.

Kevin started his professional career at Hersham Village Golf Club and stayed there for 8 years until he was lured away by the World of Golf company to work at the Sidcup golf centre. With the sale of that site, Kevin moved across London to take the head professionals job at Stockley Park Golf Club, but when the opportunity to head up this extremely successful programme at World of Golf New Malden came up, he was on his way.

Kevin is all about making learning golf fun. He is a qualified and knowledgeable PGA professional, but you won’t feel embarrassed as a novice, as he applies his great skill and easy-going manner to encourage you to improve.

Using the right combination of technology, teaching aid and practice routine for you as an individual is key to allowing you to reach your full potential. Every client project is completely unique and Richard’s enjoyment for coaching genuinely comes from this variety.
