The Performance Golf Academy Derby Training programme has been designed by Nigel Furniss, former English Golf Union (EGU) Performance Director and will draw on his experience of researching, developing and implementing the EGU’s World Class Performance Programme in consultation with Sport England.


Students will be educated in the importance of understanding the attributes necessary to be a world class golfer and how to acquire the skills to improve their own individual performance.
