Chris Whitelegg – Senior Teaching Professional and Junior Golf Specialist
“A good golf swing is about doing less to achieve more. Teach your hands to follow, rather than lead.”
Chris Whitelegg, GSEB Teaching Professional, The Shire London
Senior Professional Chris Whitelegg has lowered the handicaps of hundreds of golfers, and is one of only 30 authorised 'Golf Machine' pros in England.
The Golfing Machine is a classic textbook on the golf swing. Written in the 1950s by Homer Kelly, many regard it as the ultimate teaching manual. As relevant today as it was back then, almost every modern style of golf coaching can be traced back to The Golfing Machine – which is neither a method nor a system, but a detailed study of how the swing works.
Chris's teaching style reflects the knowledge he has gained both through The Golfing Machine concept, and through years of teaching adults and youngsters. Chris has a talent for explaining swing physics and geometry in simple ways which anyone - of any age - can easily grasp. Many of his pupils have gone onto become County level golfers, and most have reduced their handicaps significantly. Chris's achievements with Junior golfers are especially spectacular; he truly excels in this sometimes challenging area. He is a Herts County Junior Golf Coach. Chris uses a range of Golf Machine teaching aids, designed to create simple movements which promote a better golf swing.
