Lee Vannet, PGA Advanced coach has been appointed Performance Coach at Newmachar Golf club.
Lee brings a wealth of experience to this position being a qualified Class AA PGA professional for 35 years and also an accomplished successful European Tour player and Scottish Tartan Tour player, winning multiple events over the years. Lee, a natural and gifted player at a very young age, won both the British Boys and Scottish Boys and is one of five golfers to represent Scotland at Boys, Youths and Mens level in the same year. His coaching achievements include being the National Golf Coach for Trinidad and Tobago, guiding them to victory in the Caribbean Team Championships in 2003.
Lee has been instrumental in the development of some of Scotland's top juniors as a Performance and Development coach with Scottish Golf since 2016.
Lee has taught golfers at all levels with a philosophy rooted in the “player discovery” approach. “I am a facilitator of learning. I believe that every player has potential and my aim is to create a conducive environment for learning that enables the player to problem solve and take ownership of their goals. The technology (e.g video analysis, Trackman, etc) is just another tool to help the player to gain a quick understanding of their swing motion or biomechanics, but getting the fundamentals right is the key to rapid repeatable and sustainable success.”
Lee said: “I am passionate about the development of the juniors and growing the game, particularly getting more girls and women participating in golf.”
Newmachar Golf Club has some of the best golf facilities in the North East. The Club features a fantastic clubhouse and two first class 18-hole courses, designed by world renowned golf architect, Dave Thomas.
The Trackman driving range is fully equipped with the best golf app technology, Titleist range balls, large bays to an outstanding outfield with sixteen target greens. The Trackman Golf Indoor Golf Simulator offers golf experience of 87 of the world's best golf courses.
The short game facility is equipped with bunkers, chipping areas and putting greens to enable the player to practice various golf short game scenarios.
The Trackman Fitting Studio offers club fitting service on Titleist, Ping and Callaway equipment.
Lee said: “Golf is a game for life. We are not only creating a special place to develop juniors in golf, we are also teaching them invaluable life skills.”
“The facilities at Newmachar are fantastic and with the winter season upon us, now is a great time for golfers young and old, experienced or beginner to work on their game and learn new skills. My winter training programmes are customised to each individual player's needs, providing in-depth focus on the mental side as well as the technical aspects of the game with progressive teaching methods to help the player achieve their goals in the shortest time possible.”
Lee holds a Masters degree in Sports Performance Coaching from Stirling University and was awarded Advanced coach status by the PGA.
