I am going to be 50 years old in May 2019 and my wife Veronique and I have an 8-year old son called Noa.
I was a tennis coach for 28 years before deciding to quit my job two years ago to follow my passion for golf and become a professional coach. I had worked as a head coach in charge of the whole tennis school and training centre as well as the men’s and women’s teams that played in the French tennis championship.
I have worked with people of all ages and levels from kids to adults and from beginners to WTA or ATP players such as Jerome Almagrida, 400th ATP / Warda Bouchabou, No. 1 Algerian player & 500th WTA).
I spent a few years as tennis coach in the USA at the IMG Bollettieri Academy in Bradenton, Florida where I was the practice partner of Jelena Jankovic (1st world ranking junior player), Alexandra Stephenson (100th WTA) and Daniela Hantuchova (40ème WTA player).
In my life as a tennis coach I always liked teamwork but I also tried to build my own way of teaching based on an intrinsic understanding of my students. They had to feel, understand and experience on their own the things I was working on with them. It was really great to be a tennis coach but I discovered golf and it has become my new passion.
I love playing the game and, even if I had only played for nine years, I felt that it would be fantastic to make golf my full time job. So, with the advice and encouragement of my coach, Frank Schmid, I decided to take the opportunity with both hands. I successfully passed my BPJEPS golf graduation at the CREPS of Montpellier, France in 2018 and I’m now ready to become a full time golf coach.
I am excited to be an Easiest Swing coach as I am sure that it will help me to learn faster and become a better golf coach. To learn from Brian Sparks and his team of highly experienced coaches is going to give me a fantastic opportunity to share and develop my skills and to provide more appropriate and more effective help to my students.
I am delighted to have been appointed as coach at Le Domaine De Crecy alongside Thomas Pruvost and I am extremely grateful to be a part of this unique philosophy of bringing more enjoyment to golfers, especially seniors, and I am already seeing the benefits of La Danse du Golf and the Big 6 Basics both to my students and to me as a coach and as a player in my own game.
I look forward to welcoming you to Crecy as a student of mine very soon.
