His teaching philosophy revolves around creating a positive and enjoyable learning environment and by focusing on the four facets of the game, Technical, Tactical, Mental and Physical to be able to help players achieve their golfing goals. ‘I believe that fostering a love for the game is just as important as honing technical skills’.

By incorporating fun and engaging teaching methods, David strives to inspire and motivate his students to achieve their full potential and says that “whilst it is important to understand the technical aspect and dynamics of the game it is the ability to break this down into easy to understand components that makes a great coach”
