Matt Woods - Head Professional

Matt was one of the youngest PGA Qualified Professionals at the age of 19. Since then he has enjoyed a succesful career playing all around the world, where he managed to win in excess of 60 professional events including a 2 time winner on the PGA Europro Tour.  He also holds numerous course records including a 58 -13 at Donnington Valley.  At the age of 21, Matt moved to Australia for four years.  While playing in national and local events he also worked for Powerbuilt golf, designing and producing golf equipment for distribution across Australia and New Zealand.

In 2008, Matt decided to focus his career on teaching where he trained under PGA Master Professional Jonathan Yarwood.

Since then he has worked with players who have won at every level of the professional game and has had numerous junior students go on to win national and international amateur tournaments and represent England. As a coach he is motivated by the challenge of helping people improve at all levels and ultimately enjoying this great sport. Matt tailors his teaching to the individual as he does not believe in a one size fits all method, his wealth of experience as a tournament professional has given Matt a great insight to helping other golfers with more than just their golf swing.  He has a wealth of experience working with all golfers across all abilities, from beginners and children as young as 4, to club golfers to tour professionals.
