Helping to improve the way in which the PGA golf professional communicates to their pupils is just one of the many benefits claimed by the Discovery Golf concept. Providing all golfers, whatever their standard, with an extremely simple, effective and memorable method of controlling pressure on the golf course is another.
Discovery Golf PLC specialises in identifying how a golfer behaves on a golf course and then sets about managing the change process required to make improvements. The company, set up by Chris Arnold, a former golf professional who taught Nick Faldo, has attracted considerable interest from PGA professionals throughout the UK. “The majority of golf professionals can teach the theory of the swing. Very few appreciate the effect their style of teaching has on the pupil. We aim to identify the preferred style of both the professional and the pupil in order that the professional can modify their style to that of the pupil,” says Chris Arnold. “We can also provide an extremely effective way to combat stress on the golf course. This does not include positive thinking (often suggested and sometimes ineffectual) but deals with pressure by advising a temporary change in behaviour. This really works.” To find out more contact Chris Arnold by telephone on 0171 692 0619 or 0800 018 2075
