I have used Grant Hepburn’s services as coach and/or consultant on my golf game for the past 7 years. I consider his knowledge and experience to be world class. He has certainly helped me to achieve some of my goals, like winning the SA Open and Alfred Dunhill Championship, through his advice and expertise on the mechanics of golfing technique.
I have no hesitation in recommending Grant as coach to anyone wishing to improve their game and gain a better understanding of their technique. He has a wealth of experience coaching both tour players and amateurs and he is able to communicate complex technical information in simple terms.
As a former professional sports person I know that the best coaches are the ones who can impart knowledge in a simple, concise manner. Grant Hepburn not only does this with his impressive communication skills, he makes you enjoy the game more by having a laugh along the way. His method, demeanor and depth of insight into the game make it fun to learn alongside him.
He has transformed my game each time I’ve played the Dunhill Links and I’ve walked away a 5-7 shot better player. I only wish he was an “Aussie” so I could keep the momentum going all year round. The compelling aspect to his coaching is how quickly and succinctly he can identify areas to rectify and work on and then provide routines and drills to make improvements a reality.
Grant is a special coach because he goes on the journey with you and together you can achieve more.
