I first met Johnny as a Masters student and an R&A golf bursar. He has always impressed me, both as an outstanding player and now as an aspiring world-class coach, with his unwavering commitment for excellence. He has established excellent coaching credentials and continues to invest in up-to-date scientific coaching knowledge and exposure to the world’s best players.

Johnny's knowledge of the game is vast but more important is his infectious attitude toward improvement. You could chat to him for hours about the game as he is continually looking to better both himself and his students.

Johnny is someone I've known and respected ever since we played amateur golf together for Ulster and Ireland. He has a passion for the game which few others possess and has developed as a great coach. He can relate to almost every situation on a golf course and has become involved with a number of Tour Professionals whom he has been able to observe and influence their practice

Success can be attained if you are willing to work hard with the right information and develop a professional process.
In my coaching journey so far I have discovered that that tailoring a plan around the students' needs ensures the best opportunity for their progression as a player
Since working with Johnny my swing has improved a huge amount and I now understand my own bad shots. He has always been very consistent in his teaching and he has great knowledge to back up his thoughts. He’s got a real passion to teach and some really good information about the short game and even into the mental side of the things. I highly recommend Johnny if you want to take your golf to the next level.

Coaching is as much about creating a good environment for players as it is about imparting knowledge. I’m a great believer that you will get as far in life as the people you choose to have around you
I try to keep coaching simple, challenging, consistent and above all FUN!
