David Burns - European Tour Coach
European Tour Coach & Master Teaching Professional
European Tour Coach
I am a qualified Master Teaching Professional having previously enjoyed a highly successful amateur career. Illness cut short my playing ambitions however, and I turned to the teaching side of the game which has allowed me to apply my outstanding golfing knowledge to coach and develop golfers of all ages and levels.
I run my golf academy from Kingsfield Golf Centre, Linlithgow.
WHAT I DO
I will analyse your game using Trackman and video technology. This analysis will be discussed fully with you and an improvement plan tailored to your needs set out. I do not believe in method coaching.
I run 1:1 sessions on the range and playing lessons for all levels and experience of the game.
My success over the years has been as a result of breaking down the mechanics of a swing into smaller pieces of information, that all players will understand, to enable them to reach their potential to play their best golf.
Experience has taught me that instead of having a solid foundation on which to build, players have developed bad habits in their swings and spend most of their time trying to shore up the cracks.
I have built a reputation for being able to polish existing skills with the minute detail that improves the already accomplished player. Tour professionals and elite amateurs are benefiting from my insights and coaching techniques.
