Lee Sheldon

Advanced PGA Teaching Professional


Lee is a golf coach who holds advanced PGA member status for his continued professional development in the area of golf coaching.

​Lee started his career at Chevin GC in Derbyshire before travelling South to work at Royal Mid Surrey GC. Over the years he has worked with and studied under some of the greatest golf coaches in the world, travelling to New Zealand, Europe and the United States with his golf.​

In 2009 Lee was one of the first British golf Professionals to study the cult golf instructional "The Golfing Machine" by Homer Kelley and became one of the country's first authorised instructors.

​Lee has coached players of every standard, from beginner to elite amateur, European Tour Professional and a Major champion!​

Lee's coaching philosophy challenges many of the games established notions of golf fundamentals and instead focuses on the 3 things all great golfers do.

 Hit the ground on the same spot with every swing (controlling low point)
Swing with enough power to play the golf course
Control the curvature to your golf shots 

His system is simple enough to deliver results to beginners, yet deep enough to give the better player a three dimensional understanding of the physiology of the golf swing.
