Our Journey so far.....
We're both hugely passionate about the game of golf that we have played from a young age. Our mission is bringing more people into the game and making starting and improving golf easier. Having worked together at The Grove in Hertfordshire, England we saw the need to simplify the coaching experience.
We're already seeing huge strides being made by our own students and other professionals who are using our kit to simplify the communication in coaching.
John Glenn Class AA PGA Professional
Having Graduated as a PGA Professional in 2014 from The University of Birmingham John had the proud moment of finishing overall Top Male in The PGA Titleist Assistants of The Year Awards, along with finishing 4th Place in The PGA Rookie Assistant of The Year Awards for Year 1 of his studies and presented with being Top Year 1 & Year 3 Assistant of The Year for The East Region TGI Award. In his most recent position John held the role as one of the Lead Golf Instructors, coaching golfers of all ages and abilities at The Grove before leaving in July 2018 to focus full time on developing partnerships as his strength and enjoyment is building relationships and networking, which to date has grown the COLOUR PATH GOLF® Business.
Kevin Merry Class AA PGA Professional
With over 35 years of coaching experience and has worked with players from most of the major tours. Kevin brings a wealth of knowledge to the COLOUR PATH GOLF® concept. Having most recently been employed as the Senior PGA Instructor at The Grove from June 2007- December 2018 before leaving to focus from January 2019 full time on Developing the COLOUR PATH GOLF® journey.
Kevin was one of the first TPI certified Master Golf Fitness Instructors and Certified HeartMath sports practitioners.
It was a chance meeting with Dr. Dave Alred MBE in 2016 that inspired Kevin Merry and John Glenn to look for a way to influence the learning environment away from the world of golf.
This is how COLOUR PATH GOLF® was conceived as a new externally focused visual way of learning that helped to deliver a greater clarity of task to the teaching environment.
In 2017 COLOUR PATH GOLF® manufactured the first sets for use with our own lessons. The response was overwhelming from the first lesson and the instant clarity for the student was amazing.
