Natalie Haywood - Class A PGA Professional and Robert Rock Academy Coach
I started playing the game at 11 years old, by the age of 14 my handicap was scratch, and was selected to play for The England Girls and Ladies' Teams. I continued to represent England right through to the age of 21 capturing 6 England caps.
After qualifying as a PGA Professional I was approached to work for World Number one Coach Peter Cowen at his academy, Here I gained valuable teaching experience watching Pete coach some of the world’s best players. I teach all levels of golfers from beginners to professionals and love to watch how golfers can develop and progress. I don't like to make the golf swing over complicated and like to keep things simple throughout the swing. Dedication and practice are a must if you’re wanting to better your game.
I like to get a good understanding of what the pupil is wanting to achieve and how much practice and effort they are able to put into the changes so we can make an achievable goal. I like to work with the individual's strengths, only making slight changes, and making the process as simple as possible.
For the last 6 years, I have been working alongside Robert Rock European Tour Player and Coach to many European Tour Players. I have gained massive knowledge from coaching alongside Rob at The Belfry and being his Putting Coach for the past year. I also have been very
fortunate of having Robert as my coach for the last 5 years and being able to utilise his teaching methods in my golf lessons. I have now come to Rotherham Golf Club as a Robert Rock Academy Coach.
"I am pleased that Natalie has come on board as one of my academy coaches to be based at Rotherham Golf Club. Natalie has been the Tour Director for my junior tour for 6 years and she has coached many of the players on our tour since we started. We have played golf regularly together for 4 years and I have been her coach for the last 5 years with the intention of broadening her knowledge and experience from when she used to be coached by Graham Walker and was a Peter Cowen coach. Natale also has become my putting coach for the last 3 years. Without question, Natalie’s ability to pass on her knowledge and information will improve and develop you as a golfer, whatever your level. "
Two-time European Tour winner and world-renowned golf coach.
Lessons will take place either outdoor practice facility at Rotherham Golf Club or the Indoor Swing Studio using the latest Foresight GC3 Launch Monitor and video analysis.
I provide a wide variety of individual/group golf lessons and tuition that cover all aspects of the game.
