In line with Wilding Golf’s (WG) desire to make golf, and golf learning, accessible to players of all ages, genders, playing abilities and experience, WG instructor, Lee Harper is currently overseeing a beginners program at Shrewsbury International School (SHB).
As part of this, Lee makes a weekly trip to SHB to teach the basics of golf to 13 students (aged between 6-8 years old). Using clubs and light, softball-type balls, Lee demonstrates the correct way to swing – and in pairs, the students practice by trying to hit the balls close to big umbrellas set up on the field.
During the two-hour session, Lee also discusses grip, swing set-up and runs a number of practice drills.
“The objective of the program is to introduce the basics of golf to the children in a fun and safe way. Like teaching adults, some take to the game faster than others, but everyone enjoys the sessions and in between the coaching, and playing, we have a few laughs as well,” said Lee.
“Pro Lee” is a hit with the junior golfers said SHB teacher and golf program head, Shaun Meany.
“Our junior golfers are really enjoying the way Lee is introducing them to golf. In fact, overall, we are impressed with the tuition our students are receiving from Wilding,” said Shaun.
“We tasked the company with quite a difficult brief, to come onto school site and safely teach the basics of golf to complete beginners, but they have really impressed us with their flexible and professional attitude. Lee has been great with the younger students, and we are getting very positive feedback from parents,” he added.
At the end of the 10-week program the students (providing they have mastered the basics) could move into the school’s Golf Development Squad.
As part of their training, the SHB Development Squad members make regular visits to the WG Ploenchit center to work with pro Colin White. Using the latest swing analysis and ball flight technology and launch monitors, Colin helps the students to further fine-tune their respective golf swings.

There is not general tip for every golfer. Each golfer has their own swing pattern and swing faults. Understand your swing and what drills you need to work on to improve your own pattern and faults

Shamu, real name Panat Bodhidatta, is one of Wilding Golf’s rising junior stars. He took a few moments to talk to us about playing golf and learning with Shane Wilding at the Wilding Golf Performance Centers. He played tennis before he started playing golf but at the request of his father, he decided to follow in his brother’s footsteps and play golf 4 years ago.
“If I compare the differences between golf and tennis, I can say that in tennis we have to compete against an opponent. However, on the golf course we have to compete with ourselves. Tennis is a sport that requires strength while golf is more mental.”
“After trying both sports, I feel that I like golf more because golf it is fun and more challenging on the course. I have to plan how to hit each shot and how to play the next shot.”
“My father pushes me a lot about how to improve my swing how to improve my golf game and it always cheers me up. I appreciate when my father has time for golf.”
“My golf idol is Lee Westwood. He hits the driver so far and is the best player in the game.”
During the first year that I played, my driving was very poor, not where it should be. Even three years later, it still was not good enough. I could only hit 230 yards with a driver, which was very short compared to golfers my age. So my father took me to Mr. Shane Wilding at Wilding Golf Performance Centers, a well-known indoor golf center in Asia.
Shane started teaching me different techniques to improve my driving. He taught me how to use golf techniques and many other things. My driving improved to 300 yards!”
Shane knows how to change and find your suitable swing angles. His teaching is not based on any famous pros, but is tailored to suit your individual body and golf swing. Now I work with Shane 6 days a week and join him on the golf course to help me develop my distance even more.
The golf simulator technology at Wilding Golf has assisted my training and practice. I can see my real distance and I can control my swing to create a stable shot. Also I can video capture my swing and work to change it immediately if I am not satisfied with how it looks or feels.
After lessons with Wilding Golf, Shamu said his driving improved dramatically. “I was picked to play in a junior championship golf tournament in the US Kids IFS and I won in the final round last year. The tournament requires points from 5 courses. The final round was the most impressive. At the final hole, I had to do a putting shot from about 2 flag far. If I missed it, I would have dropped down to playoff position, but I made it! It was an exciting moment.”
I have three goals in the short-term: First is a good swing and hit the target. Second would be a top ten in the Junior rankings. And third is to tour as a Pro. I want to play in The Masters Golf Tournament.
