PeterLester.jpgPeter was born in Scunthorpe, England and was inspired to play the game after local hero,Tony Jacklin, won the Open in 1969. He loved to practice from the very first, and had many successful years as a junior, shooting his first par round in competitive play at just 12 years old!

Peter turned professional at the age of 15 to try and establish himself as a player on the European Tour. He had some success winning minor tournaments but never quite reaching his lofty goals for Tour success.

In 1986, Peter decided to move to Sweden to develop his teaching skills, and for 17 years gave thousands of lessons coaching golfers of all ages and levels. He had great success in coaching national players as well as with teams. It was the boom years in Swedish golf, and Peter was very active developing the game. Many of his students went on to win international tournaments, while his junior academy grew to 240 students during the 90’s.

Teaching Philosophy

Fuelled by his passion for the game and devoted to continuous improvement, Peter has travelled the world to learn from the world’s best coaches in order to develop his teaching knowledge. He has attended teaching seminars and learned from the likes of David Leadbetter, Butch Harmon, Claud Harmon, Dave Peltz, John Jacobs, Martin Hall, Jim Suttie, Pia Nilsson, Dennis Pugh and many more.

Peter does not teach any specific method.  Rather, he focuses on the individual and tailors his coaching to each player’s body style, physical abilities and goals - fitting the swing to the body and not the body to a swing. He explains the swing in very simple terms and likes to develop good routines and simple drills that are the foundation of better scores. Students always leave with a simple checklist of takeaways, and Peter guarantees that you will play better golf! In fact, over 90% of his golf school students return because they know he cares about making their experience fun and rewarding on the range or on the course!
