The experience at David's academies are not in line with mainstream coaching practices seen around the world today, and they are perhaps not for everyone.
David’s academies are based on an individual’s learning and how they can lead their own programs and progressions. Whilst some technology may be involved, David’s five-day camps go into the heart of performance and play.
In partnership with R&F Events, David and his team will travel all over the world offering coaching clinics, workshops and golf tournaments.
“David visited India on a couple of occasions at the behest of the R&A to provide some training to our teaching professionals in India. As the Indian program was still very young and in its early stages we were fortunate to have David’s guidance and inputs. He provided us with some great insights on systems for planning lessons and mapping student’s progress as well as some excellent information on elite player development. It was an invaluable experience for us to have been able to share his knowledge and insights.”

“In December 2019 we received David, who shared with us important knowledge and experience in golf development. A very entertaining workshop was developed with professionals, tutors and minor golfers who learned simple and practical techniques to improve their games and those of their students. We´re thankful for David's company, knowledge and his eagerness to make golf nice for everyone!” Saludos cordials!

“I have known and worked with David in several different capacities for over a decade. It seems to me that every conversation we've had regardless of the topic I find myself, as a coach developer, learning new information and more importantly new strategies and tactics to support coaches in increasing their effectiveness. There have been times in my role I have needed direction on certain topics; times, where I have felt stuck or unsure of the next steps. During those times I have reached out to David to shed a new perspective and he's always been spot-on. He has also been a phenomenal speaker at coaching conferences, often I have heard coaches say that was by far the most powerful and productive session of the conference. David is top-notch and always A+.”

“David, through the support of the Bahrain Olympic Committee and golf federation, came to Bahrain to represent the IGF and set the first stone in the education for national and local coaches. A remarkable and well respected man who also kick-started the education of coaches in neighboring countries such as UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Oman. It was through David that golf developed in these countries. It has been an absolute pleasure working with David. Not only is he the most likeable and experienced golf professional, but he has been a mentor and dear friend throughout my golf history.”
Juan Manuel FuentesBahrain National Teams Manager
