About Will Flitcroft

How it all began

Will was a successful amateur golfer both in Australia and in the USA. He played College Golf in the USA, where he was selected in a number of representative USA Collegiate teams, as well as playing in a number of prestigious events such as the US Amateur. In Australia, as an amateur he played in the NSW Open and NSW PGA, won a number of Vardon events, as well as representing Golf NSW. As a Trainee Professional he won a number of events and was the 2017 NSW/ACT Trainee Professional Champion.

He has been fortunate enough to spend time working with some of the best coaches in the world including Rick Sessinghaus who is coach to Colin Morikawa and Dana Dahlquist who has worked with Charles Howell III, Brad Faxon, Beau Hossler, Scott Piercy, Viktor Hovland to name a few.

He has developed an excellent Junior program at Manly Golf Club after gaining a Level 3 Junior certification from the Titleist Performance Institute in California in 2018. He is one of only a handful of Australian PGA members to hold this certification. Will continues to develop his skills and coaching through ongoing learning and education to ensure that he is up to date with the latest information available to pass on to his students.

Coaching Philosophy

Will believes the most important part of a lesson involves the student gaining a good understanding as to the cause of the issues in their golf swing. If a student doesn't have an understanding of what they are doing wrong and what effect this has it is hard for them to fix it.

Will wants his students to get to a level where they are able to self identify the issues they are having and therefore not be so dependent on him to resolve their problems. The greater knowledge a student has regarding their swing, common faults and bad habits, the better they are able to self diagnose and make changes on the golf course when necessary.

After each golf lesson you will be sent a lesson review with voice-over from Will via the Skillest app. This app enables students to look at all their past lessons, lesson notes and reviews to re-enforce what they have been taught and improve their understanding.

Education & Training

Will holds an Advanced Coaching Certification through the PGA of Australia.

Will has completed the Titleist Performance Institute Golf and Power Level 2 as well as Junior Level 3 coaching certification. He is one of only a few people in Australia to complete the Junior Level 3 course.

He continues to stay up to date with the latest technology and teaching techniques, such as being Trackman Level 2 certified and using technology including Trackman 4 for swing lessons and Capto Putting technology for putting lessons.

Prior to becoming an Australian PGA member, Will graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor of Business Administration. He completed part of this degree at California State University, Chico, whilst on a golfing scholarship.
