Teaching Professional – Matthew Guyatt

Matt Guyatt joins us on the week of the 23rd May.

As a qualified PGA Professional, I have gained a wealth of experience over the 30 years I have been chasing that little white ball around the course.

After graduating from the PGA Trainee program in 2008 I worked and taught the game of golf for 18 months before heading on tour from mid-2010, still playing events when I can. I was fortunate to have played events on multiple tours around the world, including winning on the Aussie tour and playing with a host of the games superstars! I am now looking forward to sharing some of the knowledge I learned with anyone keen for some of the tips and tricks from the tour!

Whether you are looking for simple swing ideas to work on or you want to jump into my favourite area of teaching….”on course play”, I would love to help! Making a tough game simple is my goal and helping you to understand the body movements required to do that is key to my coaching, oh and having fun whilst we do it too!

I have video analysis and Trackman technology available for those looking for a more high-tech approach.

A huge congratulations to the QLD 2021 Club Professional of the Year our very own #brentbarlow well deserved award #qgiawards2021 #golfpga #pgaprofessional #clubprofessional #welldeserved #pgaaustralia
