About Gareth Johnston
Gareth is the Head PGA Golf Professional at Bishopswood Golf Course, Hampshire. Gareth is also the leaseholder of the Bishopswood Driving Range; home of The Gareth Johnston Golf Academy. This superb facility has 8 undercover practice bays, is floodlit and has recently constructed new, private indoor coaching bays to enable the delivery of premium coaching services on a daily basis.
Gareth only believes in evidence-based coaching. He utilises market leading ‘Trackman 4 Dual Radar Launch Monitor’ equipment with ‘High Speed/Slow Motion Camera’s’. Each client departs with the knowledge behind the reasons why their faults were occurring as well as the video footage and drills to correct their ailments in a simplistic and understandable manner.
It is his belief in this style of coaching that resulted in Gareth winning notable awards from the PGA for coaching achievements and skills.
He does not teach ‘a Method’ and thoroughly believes that every golfer is an individual and therefore his coaching knowledge has to be diverse to cater for a variety of styles.
His breadth of knowledge and success as a coach have been recognised by many; including Today’s Golfer Magazine – where he features regularly as one of their ‘Top 50 Elite Teaching Professionals’.
He is a qualified ‘ACSM Fitness Instructor/Personal Trainer’ with expertise in strength and conditioning, as well as training technique and prescription. Gareth teaches any standard of golfer from absolute beginner to professional, male or female, young or experienced.
