Play the Golf of your Dreams

Around 3 years ago, I met with a young junior golfer of 16 who expressed to me a dream of becoming a professional golfer. After a long talk with his dad Mark we began working together, I told them that it wouldn’t be easy and would require lots of dedication to make it. I also told Mark his support would be invaluable however interference would be extremely detrimental. Luckily, Mark and I had worked together before and he trusted my judgement and opinion enough to just let me take control and leave Dominic to take his own journey.

We put an individual plan in place and began working together. Setting goals and processes in place for his Long game, short game, mental approach and physical development.

When Dominic started work with me he was playing off 21 handicap and had received some tuition before. He was worried about entering into such an extensive mentoring program with me because previously he didn’t really get on with taking lessons. After talking through Dominic’s concerns I found out it was because previous pro’s had been obsessed with changing his “unorthodox” grip. For me his grip wasn’t a problem, a lot of golfers and even professionals don’t realize that the grip is and will always be a variable, their is certainly no ultimate grip demonstrated by the games best players. For that reason, his comfortable and unique grip, was the thing I probably worried the least about. It has remained unchanged to this day and has definitely never impeded his development.

Along the way to gaining his professional status Dominic has enjoy some amazing wins and achievements including wining Captains Day, Presidents Day multiple club medals and The Bodger Trophy three consecutive times. The icing on the cake was when Dominic broke the amateur course record shooting 67.


photoA little bit from Dominic –

“I’ve been working hard with Steve for the last 2 and a half years. The changes that been made to my game have been truly remarkable, I don’t claim to be an expert in the field of golf coaching but the sheer attention to detail and willingness to help, regardless of how busy he may be at times is nothing short of exceptional.
Steve has taken me from a player with a 21HCP to the point of turning professional in the summer season of 2013. I couldn’t have imagined the lengths to which Steve would go to help improve my golf, but for the first time ever I’d come away from a lessons and be hitting the ball better instantly.
I wouldn’t trust anybody else with my golf, the best thing anybody could do for their game is to book a lesson with Stephen Packer, he is a truly exceptional coach and a great friend as well.”

“Thank you so much for all of your help over the years and I’m looking forward to taking my game further with your help.”

The interesting bit will be where Dominic goes from here. Dominic has decided to turn professional and do his PGA Qualification. This will leave his options open for the future creating lots of opportunities for playing and competing at a high level, with our sights set on the Europro Tour in 2014.

Great work Dom, I know your going to make a great Professional golfer and our next journey starts here!

Dominic Defends again!

D NarramoreThe Bodger Trophy is played for once a year by the club best most competitive players. Entry for the competition is reserved for the first and second men’s teams only and is played off the back blue tee’s measuring at over 7000 yards.

Being arguably the longest player at the club, Dominic loves the challenge of the blue tees, finding the extra distance no problem! It was an incredibly windy and wet day with the standard scratch raising so high it became non qualifying! However fighting the elements Dominic still came out on top, not just defending his title once but twice! This is the third year in a row Dom has won the Bodger Trophy but unfortunately it will be the last time, Dominic is set turn lose his amateur status half way through the season this year, turning professional.

It’s been a real pleasure working with Dom, taking him from a junior golfer of 21 handicap to a truly professional player!

Great work Dom, I’m excited to see what happens next!

Dominic Shoots 67 to Break the Course Record

This year has seen Dominic put together his best season ever! Dominic has won over 8 competitions! The main ones being Presidents Day, Captains Day, Young Golfers Benefit Fund Shield, August Medal, September Medal, October Medal which was (The champion of champions medal).

His handicap has dropped from 10 (this time last year) to 4. An amazing achievement!

But it doesn’t stop there, in the process Dominic set a new course record at The Dorset Golf & Country Club.

He recorded 7 birdies, 10 pars and a double bogey to shoot 67, smashing the old course record by two shots! After the round Dominic told me

It was touch and go after my double bogey down the par 3 15th but I pulled myself together and finished with two birdies down the par 5 16th and the par 4 18th to set the record”.

After reaching and exceeding the goals we had set together at the start of the year, Dominic and I have reviewed his progress and set him his new targets for the new 2013 season.

“My aim now for next year is to turn professional and play some competitive golf next season. I feel that right now the sky is really the limit!”

Dominic and I have been working together for around 3 years now, he started with me as a 21 handicap golfer. He has not only worked with me on a one on one basis he also attended both seminars I put on last year with Dr Karl Morris (Europe’s Number 1 Mind Coach) and Gary Smith (The UK’s Number 1 Short Game Coach). Clearly this was a recipe for success. Dominic’s story really does prove that with hard work, a great attitude and the right support you really can achieve your dreams.

I said it last year, and I’ll say it again. Watch this space!

With the huge support from his Dad, Mark Narramore and my self, who knows what he will achieve in the years to come!

Great Work Dom……

Dominic Narramore Successfully Defends The Bodger Trophy!

Dominic Narramore successfully defended his Bodger Trophy title for the second year in a row shooting a Net 75. The Bodger Trophy is a competition reserved for The Dorset Golf & Country Clubs First and Second Team players only. The Bodger Trophy is the only individual competition played off the back (Blue) tee’s which are normally reserved for Professionals and category one players only. The course off the Blues measures in at a staggering 7027 yards which is one of the longest in the County. The conditions were very tough with strong gusty wind and showers, the Standard Scratch for the day went up four strokes to 77 meaning Dominic got a 0.4 reduction in handicap, the only player to do so!

Dominic’s best hole was the 506yrd Par 5 second, into wind he hit a monster drive followed by a superbly struck 3 iron into only 15 feet, narrowly missing the eagle he tapped in for an easy birdie. This set the tone for the day!

Dominic’s progress this year has been fantastic, he’s worked hard on sharpening up his ball striking and improving his putting stroke, in particular. These aspects are really starting to come together and Dominic is starting to reap the rewards. Winter is fast approaching, which is the time to practice hard and make the bigger technique changes.

Dominic is ready to put the time in with me this winter, meaning next year he has the potential to come out firing!

2012 looks like it has the makings to be his best season yet, superb work Dom!

Dominic Shoots Sub Par to Win Captains Day 2011

Dominic Narramore (aged 17) shot a fantastic 2 under par, Gross 70, to Win Captains Day 2011 at The Dorset Golf & Country Club. Off of a Handicap of 10 that equated to an incredible 48 points! Dominic blew the field away with his best competitive round of golf which consisted of 3 Birdies, 14 Pars and only one bogey! Dom’s most notable hole was a fantastic birdie down the 427 yard 12th hole, into wind he hit a 3 iron followed by a 6 iron into only 5 feet.
When I started working with Dominic in the September of 2010 he was playing off of a 12 Handicap, after his latest cut he is now off of 8.5 thats a 1/4 reduction in handicap this year so far! Dominic has aspirations to play golf professionally, with his 300 yard + Drives and now scores to match, it won’t be long until he reaches his ultimate goal and full potential.

Fantastic progress Dom keep up the hard work!
