Kevin Craggs PGA ProfessionalLocation: Bishopsgate Golf Academy – Florida

Bibliography: Kevin turned pro in 1986 and owned his own golf academy in Falkirk where he taught players of all abilities. He has recently moved to teach at Bishopsgate Golf Academy about 45 minutes outside of Orlando in Florida.

He has started coaching the likes of Colin Montgomerie and Paula Creamer – his son Ben is a playing professional.

Coaching philosophy: “I teach the fundamentals so that my players have a simple and economical movement that’s easy to repair when things go wrong in their game. this makes my pupils independant not dependant.”

Best tip: “To ensure your clubhead is moving fastest through impact, turn the club upside down, and swing the grip. The ‘swoosh’ should come through impact, not before or after!”
