What’s My Story?


My dream was to be the best, to conquer the world, to lift the claret jug high above my head. Golf waits for no man, unquestionable dedication and the will to win alone is often not enough to be your best. I learned too late that success revolves around mastering what works for you the way that Mother Nature intended. Constantly locking yourself in a fight with swing mechanics jumping from one magic move to the next is a painful lesson, learned the hard way. The clock is constantly ticking; if you’re not good enough fast enough in this world then the truth of the matter is; time is money and money is time. My passion was spun and thrown into another direction. I discovered that to nurture and support a dream is a dream come true, life without a dream is a life never lived!


As a highly driven individual I push my limits extremely hard to improve myself. As a result I have had the pleasure of learning my trade with some very talented individuals who are held in the highest regard in the world of golf. If I’m honest, you might be surprised to learn that this is not all about you. This is my personal quest to discover how I got lost and where I went wrong. I am here to prove a point and prevent the same thing from happening to another strong ambition with bright eyes and a firm hold on a distant dream.

Experience has taught me how easy it is to waste a lot of time and energy, amongst other things, on improving your golf. This game is a mine field and I am here to set the record straight, to challenge techniques thought to be key and fundamental by many. To play great golf you don’t have to be the talent of the century or have the eye of the Tiger but, as with anything in life, you shouldn’t do anything until you know what you are doing. Hanging from the tree tops all night long will not make your arms significantly longer, you are who you are, don’t fight it, you should never try to be someone you are not. Through intense practice I was (and still am) more than familiar with the ever new hot tips and tricks to line the book shelves, only to discover that the majority were a total scam for the so called “expert”, who was just as confused as me, to hide behind.


As a kid I would stand up to the ball, have a quick look at my target and nail it, without a care in the world. It’s only now that I understand what happened to the boy who played the game of golf from instinctive feeling; he got lost and totally disorientated, as many do in the world of over analysis, swing mechanics, angles and rotations. The game of golf was no longer a game but rather a mathematical equation that didn’t seem to add up as I constantly tied myself up in knots that a black belt would be proud of. My talent and instinct were ripped from my grasp. I was so wrapped up in technical details that I began to question which end of the golf club I should grip. This is a lifeboat that I am sending out to you, better to save one man than to save none at all.

Before I go any further I am not going to apologise for my sometimes hard-hitting attitude. My wife (who is nearly always right) tells me that at times I sound too abrupt without firstly considering your feelings and without taking the feelings of others into consideration. I have always been hard on myself and believe that to improve yourself you have to have a combination of being hard and honest, to really get the best from yourself.


If you can’t laugh at yourself or you are easily offended then my wife is really sorry. If you really want to improve I want you to open yourself up to some new ideas that will change the way you play golf forever. I don’t see the point in beating about the bush. You are here to learn how to play golf the way your body was made to, not to be taken on a magical mystery tour. Please get ready for some home truths that I wish I was introduced to the first time I held a golf club in my hands. And for the record, my wife is not always right!


I am going to guide you and teach you how to simply build your own Signature Swing naturally, from the ground up. Throughout the process you will learn how to develop your own instinct and feeling for the movements that were made to fit your body like a glove, propelling your golf as far as you are willing to take it. You will learn the secrets that the golfing greats have known for generations and how the ball is ultimately your best teacher.

I have left the best till last; you can do all of this on your own. Yes that’s right, without a little “wizard” constantly firing running commentary over your shoulder. It gives me great pleasure to fight my corner, wiping the eyes of the guys looking through the rose-tinted glasses pushing and pulling your swing around like the school bully. Let’s get in there and get the job done!


As is often the case, the instructions detailed throughout these series of online golf lessons refer to right-handed golfers, so for left-handed players please use a mirror image version. I have tried not to continually refer to you in the masculine form, so as not to offend any of you ladies out there, but I must confess that this has not always been possible. However my advice is phrased, it is aimed at all golfers without exception.

Alan Thompson
English National Elite Coach

I have known Lee for seven years as a pupil and a Golf Professional. During this time I have seen him work diligently on his technique with an intensity and commitment given to very few people. This same quality is evident in his conduct around the Pro’s Shop and in his own teaching where I know his attention to detail and enthusiasm for the job at hand ensures that his customers and clients receive the very best of attention. (1998)

Alan Thompson has inspired many England International junior boys and several England girls and ladies, including two Curtis Cup players. He is coach to many European Tour Professionals, PGA Professionals and to the England National Elite A Squad. Much of the future of English golf rests in his hands.

Denis Pugh
PGA *MASTER Professional

Lee Kopanski regularly visited me for golf instruction over a 14 month period during the time I was based at the Warren Golf Club in Essex. Lee made a big effort to travel from his home in the North of England and thereby proved his commitment to improving both his golf swing and his knowledge of teaching. His understanding of the mechanics of the golf swing plus his interest in the skills of teaching will, I am sure, serve him well within the future. (2000)

Denis Pugh is the renowned golf analyst on Sky Sports Golf Night and was a former tour player himself. He has coached over 150 Tour Professionals since 1988. He is most famous for his long time association with 8 time European Order of Merit winner and Ryder Cup star Colin Montgomerie.   

*PGA Master Professional.

I have known Lee Kopanski for the past two years and I have also taught him not only about his personal golf swing, but also the golf swing in general. I found him to be a very personable young man, articulate and well mannered. (2000)

There are not many people that can claim Colin Montgomerie as a caddy but Bill Ferguson can. Bill was Monty's first mentor as a nine-year old and coached him well into his professional career. Bill Ferguson's playing highlights include lifting the PGA Club Professional Championship in 1976. He was the English national coach for 25 years and is a past Yorkshire captain of the PGA as well as serving on the executive committee. Bill Ferguson has been a mentor to many great players including; Colin Montgomerie, Ian Woosnam, Howard Clark, Darren Clarke, Seve Ballesteros and Paul Broadhurst.
