ENGLAND GOLF EAST REGION COACH
In November 2009 I was appointed by England Golf as Under 18 Boys East Region Coach. This means I’m responsible for coaching all performance areas of the very best players from Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Bedfordshire. This includes creating and implementing Personal Development Plans and improving all areas of the game such as long game, pitching, short game, putting, stats collection, tournament preparation and support, psychology, diet and nutrition and strength and conditioning.
I’m very blessed to work alongside the very best coaches in the country at England golf. This includes golf coaches such as Graham Walker, Steve Robinson and Rob Watts to name but a few. It doesn’t stop there though. There is a Psychology department headed up by Grey Matters and a Strength & Conditioning department lead by European Tour consultant and Lecturer in Sport Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences, Daniel Coughlan. We are at the forefront of talent development and to be part of that is truly amazing.
Success Story - COACHING OLIVER FISHER
Chris taught Oliver Fisher golf lessons in Essex since he was 9 years old. Oliver has gone on to become a professional golfer himself, turning pro in 2006 at the age of 17 and competes in the PGA European Tour.
It was at Warren Park where I met the then 9 year old Oliver Fisher. I just thought he was an amazing talent from the very first time I saw him. I’d just bought myself my first video camera and I was giving free analysis of people’s swings. Along came Oliver, with his dad Rupert, and we had a look at Oli’s golf swing. I could never have foreseen what was to come a few years down the line, although I could see he was something special. Everything about him, his swing, his tempo, his personality, it was all different from your average 9 year old who walks through the door for his first golf lesson, and I just knew I had to do all I could to help nurture what I had in front of me. I coached Oliver right up until he won on the European Tour, and included many coaching highlights during this time. Oliver won at every age group possible up until becoming the youngest ever Walker Cup player at 16 years of age. At 17, he became the youngest Englishman to gain a European Tour card and won his first Professional Tournament at the Czech Open in 2013.
