Noren WINS in Crans again…

Alex Noren wins in style shooting 65 in the final round and then making a decisive birdie on the first play off hole to Win the European Masters for the second time.

Noren used this special practice swing the whole week to feel the dominance of his RIGHT hand in the swing and exactly this feeling took him all the way to the trophy and his second win of the season.

It was a fantastic event in Crans and as always it ended in Drama as Scott Hend fought Noren till the last putt for the title.

If you watched and were surprised by the difficulty of the greens then I recommend that you take the time to visit Crans and experience them for yourself because they are BRUTAL!!!!


Westwood makes a late charge…..

Darren Clarke will have been very happy to see Lee Westwood playing so well after making him a Captain’s pick for the Ryder Cup team this week

Westwood played a great round on Sunday and finished in 4th place after a round of 63 that was the low round of the day.

Fellow Ryder Cupper Mathew Fitzpatrick shot 64 to finish in tied 7th place after finishing with 2 birdies on Friday to make the cut on the number required.


Hickory Dream 4-Ball in Crans

I don’t know who’s idea it was(probably Paolo’s)to put on the Hickory show after finish of play on Saturday in Crans but it was a HUGE hit with the spectators and they were treated to two very special holes of golf.

Paolo Quirici,Lee Westwood,Miguel Angel Jimenez and Danny Willet carrying their own bags,dressed in traditional golf clothing,playing with wooden shafted clubs,sharing laughs and jokes like you’ll never see in any other event and playing by the old rules of golf where marking of the ball on the green wasn’t allowed.

Lee,Miguel and Danny played for the first time with such antique clubs and shots did seem to stray a little wider than normal from such superstars but eventually Lee and Danny tied at level par and a Chip Off was won by Lee in classic fashion next to the 18th green.

Congratulations Crans Montana for having such a great idea and putting on an Incredible show that was enjoyed by all…..

DT WINS Swiss PGA Tour event in Ascona!!!

Well done Dave for a very impressive 3 shot win over the field win in Ascona.

Dave worked in Ascona before we were lucky to have him join us in Schönenberg 9 years ago so he had a little local knowledge but he played Fantastically in his second round to blow the field away!!!

It was Dave’s first tournament of the year but hopefully not his last and I’m sure a little support from his friends would go a long way to motivating Dave to future successes!!!


Well done Buddy;-)

The perfect Winter location-Melonares Golf,Gran Canaria

I took a few days away from Schönenberg to check out the Gran Canadian destination where I have planned some of my Winter Golf Weeks and I can happily report that I made a GREAT decision to come here!!!

The Hotel Villa del Conde has the most friendly staff that I have ever experienced and the quality of the hotel itself is 5***** all the way through with good food, big beautiful rooms and a location by the sea within 5 minutes of the Melonares golf course.

The Melonares golf course is just amazing and has perfect training facilities for the weeks that I have on offer with a great range and pitching/chipping & putting green overlooking the coastline.

Coming Soon…Daily Joga on MK Golf Trips

I will hopefully be able to offer daily yoga on some of my golf trips in 2017.

Morning stretching and some evening  yoga will surely help to keep us tension free and flexible enough to make your swing smooth and get those extra points and putts rolling in….

Keep your eye on my trip page to see on which courses this will be offered or contact me if you have any questions;-)

P.S.Thats not me on my head!!!



Swiss Birthday in Style

The Swiss Birthday was celebrated in GREAT style this year in Schönenberg with beautiful weather, the course playing wonderfully and the Schönenbergers came out in great numbers to play the scramble event that was generously sponsored by our Ziischtig-Club(Tuesday Club.)

Music was played, choirs sung, all kinds of Swiss specialities were served by Daniel and Annemieke in the restaurant and this special day really started and finished with a Big Bang!

Thank you to my team of Dave, Guy and Mirjam for keeping me laughing and very well done to the Ziischtij-Club for putting on such a great event!
