Brian Connor and
the Golf Performance Centre Team recommend the IMG David Leadbetter Academy
in Bradenton, Florida
The number of adult and junior
golfers that have become attached to the Golf Performance Centre over the
last few years is astounding.
Parents are always asking the
GPC team what they need to do to take their son/daughter to the next level
in golf or where in the world can they take their young golfer during the
winter months to enhance their child's game whilst also working on their
I am very proud to announce
that from July 2009 The Golf Performance Team has formed a working relationship
with the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida as it links in perfectly with
our training principles and provides facilities for both adults and juniors
to train in a world class environment.
The David Leadbetter Golf Academy
(DLGA) has impacted junior golf more than any other academy in the world,
and has become the standard by which all golf camp/academy programs are
In September 2009 my 19 year
old daughter Rachel Connor began working at the IMG Academy on the post
graduate programme to prepare for life as a professional golfer.
Rachel was an England International
from aged 13 years until she turned professional this year, she says that
she has learned so much in her first few months at the IMG Academy that
she wishes that she could have gone there much sooner. ' The IMG Academy
is often described as 'The world's toughest playground' I like this description.
We work hard and we play hard at the Academy but we all have this common
goal - to be the best that we can be. My game has improved so much since
I came to the Academy, I trust the coaching staff here and I love the way
that they see you as an individual.'
At DLGA-Bradenton, the team combine
the Leadbetter Philosophy of teaching with The Academy training
philosophy. Junior, collegiate, adult and professional students do not focus
solely on swing mechanics, but are guided in other areas such as tournament
preparation, practicing techniques and course management. Sessions at IMG
Academies' Mental Conditioning, as well as physical training at the IMG
Performance Institute, are important additional components of the program
that build golf athletes who can play, not just swing.

David Leadbetter is recognized
by many as the worlds leading golf instructor. His teaching theories
and methods have revolutionized the game, and his influence on all levels
of golf is unparalleled. Often associated with his contribution to the success
of Nick Faldo, David continues to work with the world's leading golfers,
most notably Justin Rose, Lee Westwood, Charles Howell III, Nick Price and
As an athlete, the
only possible avenue to success is to rely on proven methods and solid training
techniques and I have no hesitation in recommending the DLGA Camps to our
pupils. The Weekly Program, which parallels the full-time training, compresses
the training techniques, but offers all the individual elements for player
development. Students can attend for single or multiple weeks.
