“Dividing the swing into its parts is like dissecting a cat. You'll have blood and guts and bones all over the place. But you won't have a cat.”  ~ Ernest Jones

Michael Turnbull of Mindful Golf & Mindful Lawn Bowling. We've got group lessons, clinics and private lessons for golfers and bowlers of all abilities. 
 
Michael specializes in working with new golfers and new bowlers, women, intermediates, lapsed players, and golfers at the end of their tether. Advanced players are welcome as long as they come with an open mind, ready to learn.

If you're unlucky, your golf instructor will have the latest computer, video, and other bells and flashing lights (no, I'm not kidding) to enhance your learning.  They always say your learning will be enhanced but I don't buy it.  Until I have a seven-year-old with a natural swing ask me for more data I withold my sanction.

Below is a somewhat, but only somewhat, exaggerated example of current golf instruction.  If this is what you're looking for, 99.6% of golf instructors are ready and waiting to give it to you.

Trying too hard? Thinking too much?

It doesn't have to be that way.

If you find yourself getting in your own way when you play golf, Mindful Golf skills and methods, taught by Michael Turnbull, PGA Professional and Mindful Golf Pro, can show you that learning and playing golf don’t have to be difficult—in fact, learning golf should be a very natural thing. Try Mindful Golf and escape the confusing world of checklists, technical jargon and all the shoulds and shouldn'ts which make up current golf instruction..

Golf is more art than science and it’s much more enjoyable when viewed that way. It is a form of self-expression, like dancing or singing.

Why should golf be mindful? Take a moment to consider these questions:
 
If you are having problems playing golf, why don’t you just try harder?

If you are new to golf, why does everyone tell you how hard it is?

Are your good shots a glimpse of your potential or just dumb luck?

What really makes golf so difficult?

And most importantly, how do you know when you do it right?

Mindful Golf emphasizes learning by doing, instead of thinking about doing. You won't have to memorize a series of movements, remember a lot of instructions or try really hard to do anything "right." You will FEEL the difference between a swing that works and one that doesn't, something that is absent from modern golf instruction.

What are you doing while the music is playing?

…dancing and singing?

...or over-thinking, struggling and trying too hard?
