Bruce Grant - New Zealand
I had been a scratch player for many years but without regular tuning my golf swing had fallen into disrepair and my handicap had ballooned to a 10. I had dreamed of playing golf in Scotland for more than 30 years and decided as it was my 60th I would treat myself – nothing like celebrating in style.
I contacted Eric via the internet when I was searching for Golf Tour Operators and asked if he could organise a custom tour for me. Eric offered coaching as well and put together a package of coaching and golfing that was just awesome.
It is the coaching I would like to focus on. First Eric wanted to know at what level I had played. What had I changed? Where my game was at now and where I wanted it to be?
Then over a period of days we worked on each point that required correction, alignment, stance, swing plane, grip always one step at a time until it was mastered. The SAM putt lab was revealing and 2 hours training has produced immeasurable changes in my putting stroke.
Eric would be without doubt the best coach I have worked with and I would recommend him highly. His attention to detail is amazing and as he puts it “Golf is a game of accuracy so you have to be accurate in everything you do to produce an accurate shot” – that will stick with me as the coaching lessons made me realise how sloppy my basics had become.
Whilst I know my golf swing is still not perfect it was a thrill to see my scores improve during my visit finally culminating in a par round that included 5 birdies on quite a breezy day at Cragielaw- thanks for everything Eric
