About Lewis Hanney

Hi my name is Lewis Hanney and I am the Senior PGA Professional at Oake Manor Golf Club. I started my golf at the age of 7 at Banstead Downs Golf Club in Surrey. I then moved onto Chipstead Golf Club which has bred a lot of golf professionals. I put this down to the clubs nurturing and fun atmosphere where working hard on your game with support from the golf professionals was key – something I believe in now. I played for both Surrey and England Schools boys before moving to Ilfracombe in Devon. I then decided to turn professional off of scratch and start my training towards being a PGA Professional.  Once I qualified I was appointed Head Professional at South Herefordshire Golf Club in Ross on Wye. After 5 happy years there I moved up to Scotland to The Carrick on Loch Lomond.

I worked as both a teaching professional and Golf Shop Supervisor. I held this position for around a year before embarking on my next adventure building golf clubs in Surrey at The Surrey Golf Performance Centre. I learnt a lot about how golf equipment can work hand in hand with your swing. My only claim to fame was building a set of golf clubs for Joe Hart – England Goal Keeper.  After learning how to build golf clubs to a very high standard I moved to Oake Manor Golf Club in Somerset where I now offer golf coaching using Trackman, V1 and Tomi Putt Lab. I am also the Somerset Futures and Development Squad Lead Coach. This requires me to oversee the development of around 24 Somerset Players over the course of a season.

Every golf professional has a method to help players learn and improve. Mine is simple….If I can make it fun and keep it simple a player will improve. I understand players may have had lessons which resulted in them losing their way. This is not what I believe coaching is. I offer Trackman and video coaching during a lesson. These are proven methods to help you see what you are doing and more importantly understand what needs to be altered. If I can make the changes simple and easy to apply your practice will be more fun and you will see positive results!

Lewis has worked hard on helping me improve my short game. More importantly my 100 yards in where I feel I was losing shots. He took me for a game up to Royal Liverpool where I holed a shot from 98 yards and got up and down 4 times inside that tricky yardage. What can I say...Job done thanks pal!

I have been having lessons with Lewis for around a year. He has been instrumental in my improvement. I have now moved onto Trackman Golf Lessons with him and I would never go back to regular lessons. He gives simple feedback through Trackman data and videos to show me how I small changes can make MASSIVE DIFFERENCES! If you haven't had a lesson using Trackman with Lewis then do it now!

Lewis is an extremely qualified golf professional who understands how to get the most out of each player. I didn't want to change my swing so we worked hard on improving key areas to develop my game. I will say to anyone looking to improve or considering lessons Lewis' approach and attitude is second to none! Thank you mate!
