Gary Torbett, our Director of Golf, is currently coach to Nick Job, one of Europe's leading Senior Tour players. Nick has known Gary for nearly 30 years and stated "Gary and I have known each other a very long time. I watched him develop into a really good player a few years back and now he has developed into a highly respected coach. I approached Gary during the winter of 2005 to help me with my putting: it worked instantly as I won my first tournament of the 2006 season. It was during the 2006 season that Gary pointed out a couple of things that he would like to see me change that would help me stay competitive over the next few years.
We worked really hard over the winter of 2007 and I am pleased to say that those changes have produced another 4 wins since. Gary has not only helped me with my swing, he has also helped me with my confidence - something that any top player will tell you is invaluable. He understands the game but, more importantly, he understands the player and what it takes to play to the best of your ability".
Gary is also coach to former England International and Surrey County Champion, Josh White, who recently topped the Mena Tour Order of Merit for 2014 in his first full year as a Professional Golfer.
Josh states "Gary has looked after my game since I was a junior member at Chipstead and has guided me to where I am today. He keeps things simple and to the point which allows me to play without a whole load of swing thoughts. More importantly, he knows what to say and when to say it which from a confidence point of view is invaluable. I have had a number of successful seasons under Gary's watchful eye and have gained much from his knowledge and experience".
Nic has built a large portfolio of coaching ideas he has picked over the years from his own learning experiences, ranging from working with some of the top county coaches from his 6 years playing for the County as an amateur, to working with some of the best coaches in the country throughout his 6 years as a Professional.
Stemming from the teachings of his father, Nic likes to work on simplifying a student's swing not only to aid improvement but to enable the student to understand the simple mechanics of their own swing so they can work on their own personal development.
Over the past 6 years, Nic has built himself a reputation as one of the most popular junior coaches in Surrey. His full and half day coaching camps that take place during the school holiday periods are great value, very informative but more importantly great fun for kids of all ages and abilities. Junior classes are also availible every weekend and are open to members and non members.
Whether you are an expereinced golfer or a complete novice thinking about taking up the game, Nic's bright and friendly approach to group and individual coaching will aid you on the way to reaching your goals and helping you enjoy this fantastic game.
