I use technology in my lessons so I can provide you with the simplest way to fix what’s actually causing the bad shots. That doesn’t mean that the lesson is full of numbers and technical info – far from it! With the launch monitor, you’ll see that it’s the smallest of changes that result in far better shots and you'll be pleased to hear that the vast majority of my coaching is not position based!


Let’s Change your Game

Shane has been offering golf lessons in Suffolk for over 25 years!

Through the years he has helped golfers of all abilities from total beginner to fellow Pros, both young and old enjoy the game of golf more. 

His strength lies in the way he quickly identifies your problem and provides an achievable solution that is not only simple to learn but easy to take onto the course too.


"My coaching philosophy is to work with my players to develop the skills and understanding of their own swing so they can stay in control of what's happening throughout the course of a round.


I believe that at least 95% of all swing faults can be traced back to the setup. How we stand determines how we swing so stand with faults and we'll swing with them too or at the very least make movements in an effort to compensate for them which in turn leads to inconsistency.  


The most commonly asked question is ‘How do I become more consistent?' The answer lies in good fundamentals, a solid/repetitive setup routine, and starting position.

From there the biggest thing I look for to aid consistency in the swing is to keep things as simple as is possible.

Engaging the bigger muscles in the body by maintaining a centered pivot from correct biomechanics allows the body to naturally square the face through impact leading to straighter, more powerful shots that occur far more often.


I am not a one method suits all kind of coach and prefer to find the best method for the individual I'm working with, helping to develop what's already there using videos, drills, and advice to improve knowledge of what makes 'your' swing work consistently and under the pressure of competition.


Each student will benefit from videos, notes, and 'homework' sent to them on their very own web page at Shankygolf academy.
