Darren Firmly believes that there is no ONE way to swing a golf club BUT there is a need for a system and that all Golfers have CORE tendencies which need to be identified then attacked in a manner which suits the pupils individual circumstances.

With his training in NLP Darren tries to link both the Mental and Physical aspects of golf helping to accelerate his pupils Progress.

Stack & Tilt® Golf challenges established notions of golf coaching fundamentals.  Traditionally, beginners are taught to focus on aspects like grip, stance and posture. Things that ironically vary dramatically amongst top flight players.

We recognize that the true fundamentals are the ability to hit the ground on the same spot with every swing, with enough power to play the course and enough mastery of shot direction to play it well.

It’s an insight they’ve developed systematically to make it teachable.

It’s simple enough to deliver fun results for the beginner, yet deep enough to give the more experienced player a three-dimensional understanding of the physiology of the game.

Simply put, it’s a game changer.
