William Hobbs - Head PGA Professional
Will became a fully qualified PGA Professional in 2017, but has been at Mendip Spring since 2013 where he began his studies. Recently he was short listed in the Top 4 in the UK for Foremost PGA Assistant of the Year 2016. He prides himself on his friendly personality, working with all abilities tailoring each lesson specifically to the individual pupil. During his sessions Will uses the latest technology such as V1 Coaching Software coupled with a GC2 & HMT launch monitor. This allows each pupil to have all the statistics, as well as a visual of the movements made throughout the swing. Will also specialises in Custom Fitting. Each brand supplied at the Mendip Spring Golf Centre has come in and personally trained Will, in their latest equipment and fitting techniques.
