Originally from Herefordshire England, Simon started playing golf at age 6. He graduated from Texas State University in 1991 with BA's in Management and Marketing. Simon played golf for Texas State and Mary-Harden Baylor University, on full scholarships. During his college years, he was a two-year letterman on the Texas State golf team and played against some of the top PGA professionals such as Justin Leonard, Bob May, Kent Jones, Bob Estes and Payne Stewart. He has had the privilege of studying teaching techniques from some of the world's best instructors and players. Simon started his teaching career in 1985 at Bent Tree Country Club and Glen Eagles Country Club in Dallas. He studied under Eldridge Miles and David Price, as a golf professional. In 2006, Simon started Precision Golf Instruction in Colleyville and Grapevine. He has quickly become a trusted name in the game and has expanded his knowledge traveling all over the UK giving clinics and private instruction. He has been a guest on the BBC on several occasions. He was also the Director of Instruction for Total Golf Adventures for North Texas, an after school program for elementary and middle school aged kids.
He believes the golf swing is not universal, in its look or feel, from one person to the next. Every individual has his/her own physical swing identity. Teaching success simply requires a trained coach to help the student understand and remove the things in his/her swing that do not effectively contribute to hitting the golf ball. Students will leave their session hitting the golf ball better than they did when they arrived and a better understanding of their own game. Simon works with students to develop an accurate plan to improve his or her game thru a building block approach and creates a relationship with each student that produces positive results.
