Fostering and developing talent in golf at every level
The Robert Rock Academy was created to foster and develop talent in golf, from beginners and juniors through to professional level.
With a desire to get more people involved in the sport, irrespective of level, the academy provides a tangible pathway to developing golfing skills.
Robert has partnered with Tom Whitehouse and Liam James to bring the academy to fruition. Tom played on the European tour for many years and is experienced in talent development,
specifically how to progress from a good amateur to a top level pro.
Together, they have created an outstanding team, to support every aspect of the Robert Rock Academy.
Robert himself had a unique and interesting rise to fame, starting as a shop assistant and then working through the PGA, creating his own opportunities, plans and goals.
He shares his experiences and learnings through the academy, inspiring others to achieve their aspirations.
The Robert Rock Academy delivers expert advice and coaching on every aspect of the professional game, from the practical (long game, short game and putting) to the
emotional/tactical (strategy and planning). In addition, the academy also covers physical readiness, including strength and conditioning, physiotherapy, injury prevention and management.

The Robert Rock Golf Academy
I started out playing the game and practicing at the facility, had a reasonably good amateur career winning numerous club competitions and representing the county under the guidance of Robert himself. After this I enrolled in the PGA, which is where I have developed a huge interest in teaching the game and the mechanics of the golf swing, studying a philosophy Robert follows himself. I have had he opportunity to experience teaching at a high level, helping regional professionals and Tour players. Watching these players in competitive play has helped me understand how a player should practice and prepare at the highest level. I enjoy teaching golfers of all abilities and ages, with all aspects of their game, Full swing, short game and putting. I aim to make understanding the cause and effect of the players swing as easy and simple as possible, allowing them to improve and enjoy the game at the same time. I currently teach the Junior section at Roberts academy in Lichfield too, we now have up to 50 children every Saturday to our sessions, following a progression structure created by the Academy and Robert himself. We like to see the children improve, but having FUN is our main priority. I also still play competitive tournament golf, playing mainly the Midland Region tournament schedule throughout 2015. I aspire to one day play on the European tour myself, or if not, teach on there! For more information on tuition, please feel free to contact me at any time.
