Adam Glass

“I have been playing golf for the past 30 years, initially enjoying success as an amateur, playing in the company of some of the best golfers in GB&I and Europe. I was able to see at first hand what was required to play at the highest level. 

“As my ability improved, I eventually achieved multiple county wins and a handicap of +2 before turning professional. Although I still love to play as much as I can, my work as a PGA Professional means I have spent most of the last 10 years dedicating my time to helping others achieve their goals. 

“During this time I have continued to try to spend time with some of the most prominent teachers and influencers in the game. I aim to continue my research and development, so that I can continue to provide the highest level of swing and short game instruction by using effective and proven coaching practices.

“To provide some insight into what has helped shape my coaching philosophy, I encourage students to look at what the best golfers do. All have certain fundamentals that are preferable; some that are merely aesthetically pleasing, and some that are absolutely essential. 

“I see too many people focus too much on the preferences or the aesthetics. I hope that with my help I can show you that what is essential and fundamental to every great player is landing the club on the ground in the same place every time (low point control). Having enough power and speed to play at the level expected and matching the clubface to the path in order to control direction. We then use the preferences such as grip and body alignments to assist with the essentials that are non-negotiable.

“I look forward to helping you achieve your golfing ambitions and will leave no stone unturned in providing the knowledge needed to do so. In the meantime please feel free to reach out to say hello.”

“I became a Professional in 1993, after a very successful amateur career that culminated in a Walker Cup selection.

After a tough start, my career got going in early 1995 with a third-place finish in my first European Tour event, The South African PGA where I played with and just lost out to the then-current US Open champion Ernie Els. 

“This kickstarted the confidence to sustain a 15-year, European Tour career that featured two wins — the Portuguese Open 1999 and the Mauritius Open 2006 — and many other notable performances such as a third in the 1997 French Open.

“I have worked with most of the best coaches in the world, including David Leadbetter, Peter Cowen, Peter Mitchell, Denis Pugh, Mac O’Grady and many more. I am a qualified PGA teacher and have a wealth of knowledge to draw upon from thousands of hours-worth of coaching experience.

“I am also a qualified gym instructor and am able to offer extensive specialist knowledge about golf performance psychology from years competing at the highest level. I welcome you to share my knowledge and learn to be the best you can be.”
