Francois’s objective in teaching the game of golf is to help his students improve their skills and develop their abilities. He feels an obligation to show a student how to benefit best from a lesson. The student will always know and have an understanding of what will occur and expected during the session. They will be given reasons for my suggestions and instruction for change. To quote the great Ben Hogan, “Don’t simply tell a player what he is doing wrong – that’s not much help. You must explain to them what they ought to be doing, why it is correct, and the results it produces.

Currently, Francois is attached to Impact Golf Academy at KDE.

Impact golf is situated in a tranquil and relaxed part of Kuala Lumpur , which makes it the perfect place for a golf lesson .With the rainforest in the back drop and the two ponds makes for a great setting .

The two head pro’s has a great and understanding of the golf swing and has spent many year playing the games them selves . Combining the understanding of the golf swing , and experience they have pick up over the year of playing it them selves makes for complete golf lesson . They understand what ever player goes through mentally and physically when working with their clients.

Teaching Philosophy
Is to centred around finding the best salutation to the core flaw of of the individuals golf swing . Then to simplify the right movement to get the best result for the client. the use of different tools to help us as get the desired results helps with the simplification of the golf swing for the client . We use video analysis , training aids and trackman, that gives all our clients a helping hand to understand the swing and a leg up on their fellow player to improve and get better faster . Andy and Francois both have great interpersonal skills , that makes for a fun and relaxing environment to learn and improve your game golf . We want our client to walk away from a golf lesson at Impact golf not only with a much better understanding of the golf swing but also with a smile on there face because of the social interaction with the two great pro’s . We have found our client get better results when they are at ease and completely relaxed.

Each student learns how to practice, how to play the golf course, how to analyze your game to find the areas that need the most improvement, and most importantly how to think and act like a champion.

They will work with you on every aspect of the swing to improve power, accuracy and consistency. The short game of chipping, pitching, sand shots and putting is strongly emphasized to help everyone lower their scores. To develop a complete player, all the mental aspects and course management skills are emphasized with every golfer as well.

Below are few quotes that Francois believe in:

No-one will ever have golf under his thumb. No round ever will be so good it could not have been better. Perhaps this is why golf is the greatest of games. You are not playing a human adversary; you are playing a game. You are playing old man par. – Bobby Jones

You swing your best when you have the fewest things to think about. – Bobby Jones

The secret of golf is to turn three shots into two. – Bobby Jones

I have a tip that can take five strokes off anyone’s golf game: it’s called an eraser. ~Arnold Palmer

I’m about five inches from being an outstanding golfer. That’s the distance my left ear is from my right. ~Ben Crenshaw
