Biography: Neil has been a pro since 1996 and currently bases himself at Cuckfield in Sussex. He takes pride in the fact he’s turned beginners into club players and says he has given lessons anywhere from a pub to over skype – any medium suits him.

Coaching philosophy: “I never try to force my pupils to build the perfect technique. Instead, I like to help them find a repeatable, balanced motion. Once this has been achieved we can then develop an understanding of what the club is doing throughout the motion, especially through impact.”

Best tip: “When practising your chipping, lightly step on each ball. This makes a good strike harder to find but will teach you a lot about the technique required for perfectly struck chips.”
