A Day in the life: Reeves Weedon

The man who wrote the book

Reeves Weedon joined FairWeather Golf a month ago to head up instruction on our RoboGolfPro at Greenwich Peninsula.

He joined us with an accomplished CV including two publications 'the lower body golf swing' and 'phase 7: powerful ball striking made simple,' as well as becoming a master instructor of "The Golf Machine" (the PGA's own blueprint for the golf swing) one of only two PGA Instructiors to achieve the accolade in Europe.

Today we ask Reeves a few questions about his first month at FairWeather Golf.

Why did you choose to join FairWeather Golf?

After recently finishing a prolonged project in the US working with the Michigan State University I was excited to work with the state-of-the-art RoboGolfPro and a young vibrant team that I know will be a force in UK golf.

What is a typical day like for you?

First of all day's are often long. At Greenwich Peninsula we have a very large daily footfall meaning lots of opportunities to showcase the RoboGolfPro. In addition, I typically I start teaching at 9 am and will finish at 9 pm, in addition I work alongside American Golf to help their clients 'feel' their new swing.

What are the most common swing faults you help correct?

Swing plane angles are the most common fault I see at Greenwich. Shorter/higher lofted clubs generally result in a higher (more vertical) swing plane meaning students need to be in the correct position for their club. Furthermore, a golfer’s height and dynamic posture will have an effect on swing plane and as a results they need to be positioned correctly.

Describe the RoboGolfPro in 10 words?

Amazing bit of kit and the future of golf coaching.

What is the best part of your job?

I enjoy making the uncomfortable, comfortable and seeing the improvements our students can make in as little as 20 minutes. Above all, I have enjoyed working some of the students who are in it for the long run. This ensures we can spend more time together perfecting all aspects of the game allowing them to better enjoy their time on the course. Whilst the Robot is the key the Instructor is the one who can keep opening the doors.

Finally Reeves, What would you say to someone who is thinking about lessons on the RoboGolfPro.

Go for it! It accelerates the learning process.
