The JFGA stays on the cutting edge by continually researching and understanding how the world's best players prepare and perform. If you are serious about improving your game and want to experience top class coaching then contact us - Johnny Foster
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. - Prof Eric Wallace, Professor of Biomechanics and Sports Technology, University of Ulster
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 - Michael Hoey, European Tour Winner
Our coaching reaches a level where providing a positive experience for the student enables them to maximise their potential and grow as a person. - JFGA Development Coach Chris Gallaher
Johnny’s enthusiasm and passion for the game shines through in his teaching and the way that he delivers his message. I've worked with some of the games top coaches’ and he shares many of their best qualities - Gareth Maybin, European Tour Player
Success can be attained if you are willing to work hard with the right information and develop a professional process. - Johnny Foster
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. - Gareth Shaw, Alps Tour Winner 2012
We are very fortunate, in the University of Ulster, to have access to someone of the calibre of Johnny Foster, to coach and develop our students to reach their full potential as golfers, while studying to improve their academic qualifications. -Philip Carson, Sports Services Manager, University of Ulster
Johnny is clear about the road we are taking and the time it is going to take. He is energetic and always looking for ways to improve his own knowledge and performance. I am very happy with the relationship we have and the progress so far. -Niall Kearney, Challenge Tour Player
The JFGA believes in our students sharing their success so that others may grow and be more than they are... - Johnny Foster
Over the last few years I have helped some of the players Johnny coaches and he has always been helpful, monitoring their progress and providing feedback. I always enjoy catching up with him at events and sharing ideas. I am sure Johnny is well on his way to becoming a top class coach. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to anyone serious about improving their game - Phil Kenyon, Director of Harold Swash Putting Ltd & European Tour Coach
The success of the warm weather training week in Portugal was down to the preparation, energy and commitment of Johnny Foster's elite coaching. - Barry Fennelly, Manager Paddy Harrington Golf Scholarship Programme at NUI Maynooth
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 - Johnny Foster
I try to keep coaching simple, challenging, consistent and above all FUN! - Johnny Foster
You have a real passion for the game and to widen your knowledge of it, it's great to see. You'll do well as a coach. - Brett Rumford, European Tour Winner
I'm always fascinated by why certain people excel – in golf, in sport and in life. Of course, there are always explanations and it’s the journey toward our own answers that teaches us all we need to know. - Johnny Foster
Not only is Johnny already a very good golf teacher but he has an open mind and a thirst for more knowledge, add that to his personality and communication skills and I would say that he has the potential to be a world class instructor. - Jamie Gough, European Tour Coach
When we really take responsibility for our attitude, we gain personal accountability. Ultimately it comes down to the player walking the path and the coach guiding with knowledge and experience. - Johnny Foster
Johnny’s desire to further his knowledge and understanding of the golf swing and his love for the game is evident the moment you meet him. I find Johnny personable and extremely single minded in his quest to develop his coaching and reputation and would recommend him to anyone who is serious about improving their golf game! - Andrew Nicholson, DLGA European Senior Director of Instruction
