- WHAT DO STEVE'S CLIENTS SAY? -
It was so enjoyable learning with you. Thank you very much for the help and the excellent teaching, I do find you have helped improve my game a lot.
Thank you very much for always been so friendly, helpful and patience
- Betty Yao
Steven is a great teacher; he listens, is patient and comes up with new ideas on how to improve on your swing. He also makes you think about what you want to get out of every shot.
I would have no hesitation recommending Steven and I wish him all the best in his new venture.’
- Liz Dale
Steven was like a breath of fresh air. He started with the basics, Grip, Posture, and Alignment. The way he transmitted these 3 key points was fantastic. On the first lesson alone I managed to score under a hundred.
- Loui Suarez
Steven was very helpful, with lots of ideas for practice routines and lots of patience.
The lessons were always fun and I enjoyed lessons at regular intervals over the summer.
- Wendy Dixon
Steve is a brilliant coach! Patient, good humoured and a fantastic gofer. I’m a real beginner but Steve’s analysis, clear instructions and constant support gives me belief that I really can improve.
A private lesson from Steve Thomas is worth every penny.... if you want to play golf... I sincerely recommend this chap...
- Martin Yeates
After 10 months of his coaching I’m now fitter, more flexible and have absorbed his passion for the game - I even have achieved my first par 3 and consider myself to be a
competent novice” and am now comfortable to play a round with experienced players.
Would I recommend him as a professional golf coach…YES every time.
- Ken Foy
I find Steve’s style of quality instruction, encouragement and patience to be a positive impact on my game and helped me show real improvement during the beginner's course.
- Andrew Vivian
Steven demonstrated a clear ability to analyse information from the video and technical tools he had at his disposal and then interpret that into practical advice for a not too savvy player like me. I saw a huge improvement in my posture and swing that greatly improved the consistency of my play and this resulted in an embarrassment free time at two of the tougher courses in the UK.
- Rob Forth
I was keen to tighten up my overall game and eliminate basic floors in my technique. With Steven's advice and guidance, I have been able to find more consistency in my game without making wholesale changes to my swing.
The lessons were money well spent.
- Stephen Flynn
Steven was extremely helpful with one-to-one beginner's lessons when I took up golf, both in correcting already established bad habits and coaching good techniques for improving my practice and overall golf game with a friendly and (very importantly) patient style.
I would highly recommend Steven to anyone looking to take up golf or improve their game.
- Will Sumner
You are a very sympathetic instructor and know how to get the best out of people. I am sure any new clients will do very well with you.
- Eileen Chan & Laura Martin.
I really enjoyed my lessons with Steve and my golf improved no end. He is a natural teacher.
- Stephen Penneck
Thanks Steven. I found the lesson really useful and being able to view the video and hear you comments after is great - something that wasn't available when i was learning in the '90s!
I've had a look at the video and the lesson has given me something to work on.
- Richard Pinch
Thanks for the lesson yesterday; it was very helpful and enjoyable. I have booked to see you again next week.
- Peter Lyneham
I have got on well since the last lessons thanks and they have made a big difference.
I just wanted to say a big thanks for your help so far and you can rest assured I will be coming back you for further lessons. The results I have seen have been fantastic so far and I look forward to continued progress.
- Nick Fleming
I'm really loving the lessons. Thank You!
- Roy Stride
Hi Steven, thanks for the lesson earlier. I really feel like I am making progress!
- Charles Clarke
You have no idea how bad my slice was and it was getting worse, so to fix it within 5mins was fantastic! Thanks Steve.
- Shaun Barns
It's been really nice learning golf from you, thank you so much for your coaching and encouragement that inspire me on the interest of golf. Many thanks.
- Ping Liu
Thanks for all your help. You have really helped me make huge strides with my swing, I feel like I’m striking the ball better than ever and it feels easier than ever. I will defiantly be back for more lessons but i want to get out on the course and bed in the current improvements, but i do have some friends i know will benefit from your help, and i will pass on your details.
- Nigel Fenn
Saw me on the range, Steve gave me a couple of tiny tips which helped so I booked a course of lessons. The lessons helped with minor adjustments to sharpen my game and add to the playing enjoyment.
I will certainly use Steve again and recommend his tuition style.
- Jon Smith
Just want to say what an experienced golf coach Steve Thomas is. His knowledge is vast so you’re in good hands. I wasn't expecting results as quick as I have and Steve has most definitely turned my game around, so much so that my confidence is spreading throughout the rest of my game...!
I can't recommend this guy enough...
- Martin Scott
I have had golf lessons with Steve Thomas and could not recommend him as a golf instructor highly enough. I started with Steve a couple of years ago due to ongoing swing problems. Steve's approach immediately worked with me. He has a great balance of using technology but explaining in a manner that doesn't confuse.
Steve's approach meant that I understood the flaws and was able to fix them. It had an immediate improvement to my game and my handicap came down by 3 or 4 shots very quickly.
I have continued to see Steve and the game has become far more consistent.
I would highly recommend.
- Greig Lloyd
I have been having lessons with Steve for a year now and find his style of teaching commensurate with my learning style
He takes a lot of trouble to explain changes required and understands my analytical approach.
This has helped improve my game considerably in only my 2nd year of golfing, he has helped keep things simple and it’s a pleasure to be taught by him.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone wishing to improve their all round game and particularly their short game. His resources to help practice are particularly helpful too.
He is assured of my continued patronage!
- John Cattermole
Before I had a lesson with Steve, I didn’t understand why I was unable to have a consistent swing. Steve asked me to swing while he filmed me. He then took me into the swing studio, here he played the video and told me my posture was all off. He then gave me advice to correct my posture and how to set up correctly, I instantly notice the difference and felt good in my swing. He sends you a video via email so you can look back at the lesson.
Since then my game has been much better and I have dropped my score round the course. I would highly recommend Steve he is very professional and very knowledgeable.
- David Read
Having regular lessons with Steve is very relaxed but very informative. I have gone from a 24 to 19 handicap this year under his tutelage learning various techniques and practices in a fun environment. I highly recommend lessons with Steve especially his monthly payment scheme that he has in place. His website has tons of things for you to learn and try out as well.
- Jason Ryan
Steve runs a great developmental golf programme from holding the club to breaking down individual swing motions. I've really enjoyed the process and have improved massively over a year of tuition.
- Mitch Sayers
Top class coaching with a top class bloke; lessons are always professional and well organised, I would recommend Steve to anybody looking to improve their golfing game and have a laugh along the way.
- Harrison Worley
I just wanted to thank you for a great lesson yesterday. Every lesson I’m walking away with a clear understanding of where I need to improve, today I’ve taken the driver lesson you gave me and put it into on-course action and I shot my best round since returning to golf… 4 over par.
- Kevin Smith
I reckon Steve has read every golf book ever written! He manages to blend loads of technical knowledge into a laid back coaching style, meaning that no two lessons are ever the same; I find it really helps to understand 'why' I need to swing differently, not just 'how'.
I hadn't played golf for nearly 20 years, but after 12 months with Steve I've improved my game massively. I joined the academy club and found the mix of 1 to 1 coaching, group clinics and masterclasses really helpful. I decided that money spent on lessons was better value than money spent on the latest clubs, there's nothing better than winning a longest drive comp with an ebay driver!! I'm now down to a 19 handicap but the biggest improvement has been consistency and more enjoyment from my rounds.
Top coach, I've had a few golf pro's that recycle the same old lessons. Steve is genuinely different, lessons are always bespoke, well planned and good fun. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
- Gary Pearson
Many thanks for sending the video notes through - It makes a huge difference being able to see it and have your explanations alongside. I’ll practice what we went through, to make it feel natural.
I took a lot from yesterday’s session and I’m looking forward to our next one in a couple of weeks.
- Tom Bishop
My friends are amazed with the improvement they’ve seen in my game all thanks to the lessons I have had from Steve Thomas to improve my ‘iron’ shots.
Loved each lesson and always came away with video analysis & exercises that helped tremendously.
- TJ Mudan
I've had a few lessons with Steve Thomas at the 3 hammers golf club. Top class instructor! He is very interesting in his teaching methods. His instructions were clear and precise. Would highly recommend Steve if you want to improve your game of golf. I will be booking some more lessons very soon… Top class.
- Steve McKenzie
I am a late starter to golf at the age of 57. I have had 9 lessons with Steve over an 18 month period and would recommend Steve to anyone involved in golf. He has improved all aspects of my golf ability thanks to his good natured approach and keen eye to bring in improvements to my game.
- Steve Burford
Steve started teaching me 2 years ago. In that time he has improved my confidence playing golf in that I now feel more confident playing shots I would never have attempted. He has provided me with a training programme that includes video footage and also taking me out to the course to work on my chipping and putting. I play in a charity competition in Barbados and with Steve's help I have finished a respectable 8th and 10th from 25 players. I will be seeing Steve shortly as the competition is taking place in November, so I need to iron out a few more kinks and look to finish top 5 this year! Steve is a fantastic coach and it would be fitting if he were to win this award.
- Dave Cummins
Having only started playing golf in January 2019. My lessons with Steve have been crucial in me improving my golf. His way of dissecting my swing, identifying the issues creating a plan and showing me easy ways to improve during the lesson and to be able to take away rectify and reproduce these tips. I would highly recommend Steve for golfers of all abilities.
- Sandy Mcfie-Hyland
I've been working with Steve as part of his exceptional Academy Club and has helped to iron out a lot of (former) lifelong problems with my swing. I'm a work in progress, but our lessons and the value of the Academy Club for me is wonderful and can't rate him and his professional approach highly enough. The only way he might get rid of me is if I turn pro...
- Sam Volkering
I enjoy working with Steve, as I’m not a “technical” player at all, and Steve gives clear, concise and ultimately simple instructions to help improve your game. Difficult areas and problems are broken down with the innovative use of props (alignment stocks, golf baskets etc), and you can see noticeable improvements almost immediately – With Steve’s help this year my handicap has improved by 5 shots.
- Nigel Hutchinson
Steve has a great attitude; he always tries to find a way that can improve my golf swing. A lot of the issues with a golf swing are down to the individual and sometimes it takes a while for it to click, frustrating for the pupil and for the instructor no doubt. You guys have a great setup and facilities.
- Joe Casey
Steve is very patient, calm and adaptable and not only is he a brilliant teacher he is also a brilliant listener. Steve takes the time to take in your concerns, talk them back to you and offer guidance on how to overcome in a collaborative way, using many different approaches to tackle your problems and adapt his already engaging methods to get you the results you are looking for to improve your golf game, not just on the course but off it too - mentally helping with the challenges that face all golfers, new and seasoned. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
- Paul Everett
Before my first lesson with Steve my index was 17.9 in a couple of months, I’m now down to 13.2, I’m booked in with Steve at the end of the month and I can’t wait to find out from him how to improve my game even further.
- Will Binks
Just wanted to say, I’m really enjoying the lessons and the feedback on the course is fab.
I want to get my all-round game back to a decent standard (single figure hcp fingers crossed) so we can look at Driver, short game, putting etc but I’m totally guided by you. Thanks for all the help.
- Nigel Taylor
I’ve been having lessons with Steve for around 18 months. In that time, I have gone from shooting and average of 115 to an all time best of 86. I wasn’t a good golfer at all, but now I feel like I can play very good golf. I highly recommend his teaching style and tactics.
- Andrew Clark
My handicap was 22 when I first went to Steve and I now have a WHS OF 16.9. This is coming down all the time and my recent scores of 82, 85, 85, 86 (par 70) and my best ever score yesterday of a gross 74.
At 61 years of age I am now playing off the lowest handicap I've ever played off and am aiming to knock another 4 shots off this over the coming 6 months.
- Nick Giles
I believe Steve’s has all the qualities required for a great coach, excellent communication skills, a deep understanding of the golf swing and the ability to identify what works for each golfer, whether this be through the use of technology or a simple swing key or thought. I also appreciate the way that Steve takes a holistic view of improving my game, listening to my feedback from my latest rounds, in order that we can agree a plan forward. This means that our sessions are not always golf swing focused, but could include time spent on putting or other areas of the game, dependent upon my particular needs at that time.
- Glenn Saunders
Steve is a very patient, encouraging coach who has a great enthusiasm for the game of golf.
- Richard Weston
Really enjoyed the session yesterday and excited to get to work on the changes.
- Dan Beck
I would like to commend Steve on his professionalism. His analysis was insightful and what I found particularly helpful is that he worked with me so I was actually able to feel where the club should be on the back swing. He emphasised the importance of making changes incrementally and ensuring they are integrated into my existing swing. I went away and played better than I had done in several weeks
- Claire Arnold
Steve explains things well and makes it easy to understand how you can improve your swing, concentrating on one or two key aspects at a time.
The master classes are excellent. I have attended bunkers and putting and they were very detailed demonstrating Steve’s knowledge of different techniques.
My game has improved such a lot this year and handicap is coming down!
- Lesley Smith
“Since working with Steve I found the holy grail for us amateur golfers. Lowering my handicap! I’ve gone from 18 down to 12.7 in just over 12 months. I’ve suffered from chipping yips for over 5 years and these are cured with the chipping technique and approach we have worked on. My regular partner used to rely on my bad chipping to win regularly but not anymore and I now even look forward to missing the odd green!!”
“Steve’s help with my mental approach has, more importantly, helped me enjoy my golf as well as improve consistency.”
- Richard Astbury
