Garry has been developing coaching programs for 25 years for all standards of golfers from club juniors to tournament professionals and continues to be innovative in his approach to raising the standard of his athletes. Gaz will assist you in finding the best plan for ‘your’ game, the swing is but a small part of golfing the ball. The game is about creativity, decision making, awareness, shot selection, fewer putts and having fun in the doing! We do not have time to consciously do anything during the swing – we need to just ‘BE’. Remember – “We only achieve ultimate control, when we give up control”. Garry Calder’s outstanding coaching record includes: Queensland PGA Teacher of the Year 1995,2003 and 2009; Queensland State Coaching Panel 2003-2012; Australian Team Coach for 2009 (Asia-Pacific Golf Team Championship); Australian Team Coach, World Cup 2010.
