here’s why this system will work for you!

I have been working with Marcus since 2012, starting on the PGA of Australasia and with Marcus’ help working my way onto the European Tour. His knowledge of the game of golf and the golf swing is second to none and it’s a great benefit to have a coach that has played tour level golf and understands it at the highest level.

Marcus has a real talent for immediately understanding your swing, finding the flaws and helping you fix them so you can maximise your potential. My handicap has halved since I have been with Marcus and he has given me such confidence in my game that I have played in the last 5 NZ Opens as an amateur in the pro-am.

I have been lucky enough to have been personally coached by Marcus Wheelhouse over the past 7 years and cannot speak highly enough of his teaching ability. I am pleased to say that my game has improved markedly as a result. He has a very professional nature and energetic personality.

Marcus has an extensive knowledge of the game and is an exceptional coach. Golf is complex for someone like me, a middle aged golfer without any athletic background, but Marcus makes the process easy by breaking down the complicated aspects of golf into pieces so that I can improve my game step-by-step.
