Josh qualified as a Class-A PGA Professional in 1995, and spent the next six years competing on the Australasian, Asian and South African PGA Tours.

Golf Coaching Philosophy

Upon turning his attention to coaching in 2001, Josh applied the knowledge gained during his touring career for the benefit of his students.

Once the fundamentals of grip and posture have been established, Josh believes the key to a successful golf swing lies in simplicity. By removing unnecessary movement from the swing, golfers of all levels of ability will find they are able to achieve consistent results and minimize errors.
