Have you ever had a golf lesson and wanted to know a little bit more about the coach behind the swing tips and short game tricks?
At Golf DXB we only select the best coaches to be a part of our team and we’d like you to get to know them better! So here’s a few things about Coach Jordan that you might not already know.
As with many of our coaches, Jordan attended the University of Birmingham in England to complete a degree in Applied Golf Management Studies before starting his coaching career, with his dissertation looking at how PGA professionals continue to develop their knowledge post-graduation. Since University he has had the opportunity to work alongside Craig Dixon and Guy Wilson at the Institute of Golf in New Zealand, learning from the pros who coached the current female number 1 Lydia Ko. He has also continued his own interest in elite coaching by completing the TPI Level 1, Fligthscope Operator and Swing Catalyst Level 1 courses, so if you’ve got a problem with your swing, Jordan really is your man. When talking with Jordan it is clear that he is passionate about coaching and getting the best out of each player, with his coaching philosophy being to
“Develop sound fundamentals based upon each individual’s needs to create long-term optimal player performance whilst ensuring injury and pain free golf.”
Currently Jordan is one of our elite performance coaches that works with the UAE National Development Program from the EGF, a program designed to develop the UAE’s next top golfer. He has been instrumental in improving the game of some of these golfers and is part of the team that has brought them from complete beginners to being able to play and play well in our International Golf Junior Championship. He is also part of the team that coaches our elite (white level) junior groups and has been working hard with these children to improve their game and lower their scores around the course.
We’re happy to be able to call Jordan one of our team and are excited to see what potential he can unlock from some of our youngsters in the future. I leave you now with Jordan’s own goals for the future, aspirations that Golf DXB can fully support;
“My goal is to continue to grow and expand my learning to become the best elite junior coach in the UAE whilst helping to grow the elite performance program with Golf DXB.”
