ABOUT: GARY ANTHONY TAGGART G.S.E.B
Gary has been a Golf Professional and High-Performance Golf Coach for 30 years. He has coached all levels of golfers ranging from tour players to beginners. Gary has worked with some of the best coaches on the European Tour and US Tour; these include his coach and mentor Chuck Cook, Ben Doyle, Jim Flick, and Robert Baker. His teaching style comes from years of working on the principles of the golfing machine and modern golf biomechanics. In addition, he has studied with Dr Young Hoo Kwon, a PhD biomechanist who has worked with Tiger Woods and golf coach Chris Como.
He holds a degree in Golf Biomechanics, is a proud member of the Titleist Performance Institute, and has trained and attended many courses in professional golf. His teaching style is based on the three imperatives of the golf swing:
A: A good impact position creating a flat left wrist.
B: A straight plane line.
C: Lag with body pivot and kinematic sequence.
Gary has delivered many golf seminars and workshops for education, local government, governing bodies, and large multinational companies. These include Glasgow City Council, East Ayrshire Council, South Lanarkshire Council, BBC Sport, Real Radio, Commonwealth Games, and Ryder Cup in 2014. Most recently, the 2018 European Championships.
