"Thankyou so much Matthew for introducing me to the wonderful game of golf. It has been a great experience learning the game and thank you for your time, patience and help throughout my lessons"

"I was taught by Matthew during his time at Gleneagles. My golf swing is, at best, unorthodox, I wanted to improve but did not want to have my swing ripped apart and spoil my enjoyment even for a short period. Matthew worked with what I had and there is no doubt that I achieved my objectives. He explained the changes he thought would benefit me in a clear concise and articulate way and gave me instructions I could apply to practice that would impact on my general play. Matthew contributed to my handicap coming down and me getting even more pleasure from the game"

"I'm not the easiest to teach but I have to say I walked away today with a clear image of what's needed to hit that fade with confidence. I actually think my best best golf is now not behind me but most definitely ahead. Thank you very much again"
