Meet our new Head Teaching Professional
Hailing from South Africa, David Lamprecht received his PGA qualification and subsequently turned professional at the age of 20. In his early playing years, David competed on tours such as the Asian Development Tour, IGT and the Big Easy Tour.
It was during these years on tour that David took an interest in teaching others, and naturally from this, his journey into golf instruction began. This journey has provided David with many different opportunities, in many different countries. Highlights include: Golf Instructor for Club Med, Indonesia; Head Instructor for Urban Fairways, Singapore; and most recently, Golf Academy Manager for the prestigious (Troon managed) Els Performance Golf Academy, Malaysia.
David has a great passion for golf in Asia and he strongly believes that there is incredible scope for growing the great game even further. David cites that the game is becoming more accessible, along with highlighting how much influence the successful Asian touring professionals are having with growing overall interest and awareness.
On his passion for the game and for instruction: “It wasn’t something I thought about growing up, but following years of practice and then with my time playing, I soon realized that I have the ability to analyze the mechanics of the golf swing, along with understanding how to optimize one’s ability”.
With regards to his approach, with a nod to his instruction philosophy: “Rather than changing your swing, I teach you to improve on what you have already. David adds: “I like to look at your fitness levels, your diet, your body dynamics and then together, understand what you personally want to achieve. With this approach, my approach becomes unique with each golfer and it’s this personalization that brings me great joy”. David leads on to state: “I have many success stories, from junior level up to pro level, and I am confident that I can have a positive impact with every golfer”.
