Charlie Markert

Short Game Specialist & PGA Professional

Coaching Philosophy:

I believe golfers of all abilities should have the adaptability, creativity and understanding to execute a number of different shots around the green for each scenario faced on the course. When a player is faced with challenge or failure their skill and performance levels should improve from the feedback obtained resulting in beneficial change.

Other Interest

Outside of golf I am an avid Manchester United fan and try to attend games when I can. I enjoy keeping myself in shape by attending the gym most mornings or evenings. During the summer months I go hiking at various locations around England, I also like to play badminton and on occasions get the boots out to play football. I am also a huge music fan listening to various genres of music and when I can attend concerts and festivals throughout the year.

Favourite Golf Course
  • Delamere Forest Golf Club (Cheshire, England)
  • Dom Pedro Old Course (Vilamoura, Portugal)
  • Royal Lytham St Annes (Southport, England)
Favourite Golfer of all time

Jordan Spieth, I love how creative he is in and around the greens, he can execute every shot to perfection. I also admire his grit and determination, he never gives up.

Best shot you’ve ever seen

Bill Haas Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club 2011. The pitch shot from the water to save par and extend the playoff against Hunter Mahan.
