David Lamprecht

David has always loved the game of golf and decided to make a career out of it at the age of 18, finding himself turning pro at the age of 20 when he also got his PGA Diploma.
    Not only has David played professionally in the IGT, Asian Development Tour and The Big Easy Tour, but also took an interest in teaching others the game of golf which eventually lead him to be a full time golf coach.
    "I didnt't really think about it growing up, but I realized during my playing career and years of practice, that I have the ability to analyse golfing mechanics and the requirements of playing to the best of your ability. Rather than changing your swing, I teach you to improve on what you have already, I teach from junior to pro levels and give you everything you need to become a better golfer, even if your new swing take months or even years to perfect.
    We look at your fitness levels, diet, body dynamics and understand together what you want to achieve, this way my coaching becomes unique to each golfer. That's why I enjoy working with my students and the best part of my job is building long lasting and professional relationships, that gives me my job satisfactions."  
    David is a man of many talents, outside golf David enjoy wakeboarding, kitesurfing and walking his dog.
