A golf coach from Preston has been listed as one of the top 25 golf coaches in the UK by Golf Monthly.

Peter Finch, born and bred in Preston, was awarded the title after setting up his own golf coaching business at Lytham Golf Academy and finding success on the social media site YouTube.

Golf Monthly is a monthly golfing magazine that publishes tips, drills, and advice provided by UK’s top golf coaches, awarding 25 top golf coaches in the country, including Peter.

The golfer’s first sporting love was football, however after receiving an injury at the age of 13, he soon turned his attention to golf and started his Professional Golfers’ Association training at the age of 17.

The coach, who has worked at The Shropshire, Lilleshall Hall and Manchester’s Trafford Golf Centre, decided to start a YouTube Channel in October 2011 in order to grow his client base.

His videos include a variety of golf tips, drills and advice on how to improve in the game and his channel has reached a staggering 69,000+ subscribers and over 13 million views.

Peter’s new teaching facility in Lytham, ran by himself and colleague Rick Shiels, helps to teach golfing enthusiasts the correct technique and focuses on the individual as opposed to concentrating on a swing model.
