Hi, I’m Matthew Buff PGA Professional of Australia.
I grew up swinging a golf club when I was 2 years old and I’ve never looked back. I completed my PGA Traineeship in 2012. I’ve played in several Australasia Tour Events. I’ve played with Jason Day and Rory McIlroy just to name a few.
When I coach I work with what golfers have. I believe no one is built the same. I work with all golfers whether their a beginner to a Tour Professional. I want golfers to reach their full potential. Simplicity with a mix of dedication, anything is achievable.
I have swing analysis software which will help diagnose swing corrections.
Drills to correct your swing.
Mental preparation and warm up exercises to help you build an all round game.
