Brians Easiest Swing Legacy
I am Philip Sparks, younger brother of Brian. I worked with Brian for just under 50 years developing our ideas and helping to create Easiest Swing. Brian suffered from cancer twice in his life, first aged 26 and again age 62. It is a testament to his fighting and positive attitude that he outlived the medical world’s expectations by around 8 years longer than anticipated.
He believed in the power of questions, challenging player’s beliefs and that coaches must work very hard not to talk too much. He felt that most teachers either confuse or bring too many ideas too quickly to their pupils. Thereby, leaving the player in a worse state than when they started. By concentrating on leaving players to think for themselves with the minimum input from their coach their swing and game would flourish. In this way the coach is just a guide helping to let the player find out for themselves their own Easiest and repeatable swing.
He was passionate to not take us into the technical abyss that so many Golf Teachers have fallen into in recent years. Brian’s unwavering belief was that if you could reduce tension and technical thought, and realign players beliefs in areas where they were maybe out of kilter, their swings would flourish as would their entire game. He also passionately believed that a positive attitude and one that accepted the mistakes that occur frequently in this game, would carry players to a higher level. As his brother, I saw this happen time and time again with players who would find they had an ability within them that they never knew existed.
Brian Anthony Vincent Sparks
June 17 1951 - February 4 2022
Brian turned pro at East Berks GC in 1966 and played the tour from 69-72 before moving to The Downshire. He then worked as Head Pro at Barton on Sea, Staverton Park, Stoneham before moving to France in 1987 to become Head coach at Sully sur Loire, Chateau des Sept Tours, Sable Solesmes. After that he became General Manager at Les Bordes and The Lambourne Club before returning England in 2006 to coach at my golf course and driving range, Manston Golf Centre. I sold Manston in 2011 and Brian stayed on there for a further 5 years before then moving to Canterbury GC as the final home for his wonderful coaching.
Driven by a relentless passion to revolutionise the world of golf coaching, Brian dedicated his life not only to teaching the sport but also to leaving a lasting legacy. He firmly believed that traditional coaching methods, despite their good intentions, often made golf more challenging for the majority of players. Instead, Brian emphasized the importance of guiding individuals to discover their own unique path to a better swing and game. By championing movement and freedom over rigidity and stillness, he helped both novices and seasoned professionals alike flourish and experience a game-changing approach that seemed almost too easy to be true.
To carry on Brian's incredible vision, a dedicated team led by Seán Herron, based in Majorca, and myself, have been entrusted with the responsibility of continuing the Easiest Swing brand. Our goal is to create a thriving online and virtual Golf Club where members can connect, learn from Easiest Swing coaches, and share stories with like-minded golfers. Additionally, this virtual "Club" will offer resources designed to help golfers enhance their fitness, nutrition, wellbeing, and mental attitude. Brian devoted years to developing this groundbreaking project, which finally came to life in the summer of 2022. Join us in continuing Brian's remarkable legacy and experience the transformative power of the Easiest Swing community.
