Stewart Corstorphine The Golf Athlete levels 1 and 2 qualified TPI Certified Golf Fitness Instructor level 1

Stewart Corstorphine

Stewart has been a full member of the Professional Golfers Association since 1984, presently holding an AA status.

His career has taken him to work at several of the leading golf clubs in the south east of England, most notably as senior assistant to the three-time Ryder Cup and World cup player George Will at Sundridge Park Golf Club (coach to several leading tour players). After being appointed Head Professional at Chislehurst Golf Club in 1988, a position he held until 1993, Stewart then followed his passion for coaching. In 2006 Stewart founded Total Golf Analysis, moving his base in 2007 to the new coaching facility at the magnificent setting of Selsdon Park Hotel in South London.

2001 was a memorable year, as Stewart first made the acquaintances of four men who were to move his career in the direction it has taken him today. Dr Robert Neal (golf biomechanist), Michael Dalgleish (physiotherapist), David Chettle (strength and conditioning expert) and Ramsay McMaster (golf-specific physio) enhanced Stewart's knowledge in golf biomechanics and the physiological links that underpin efficient movement patterns in the golf swing more than anything or anybody in the previous 20 years. Stewart has since completed 'The Golf Athlete' levels 1 and 2, 'International Physiotherapy systems' level one and 2 as well as completing TPI CGFI level 1.

Stewart can regularly be seen across the UK and Europe presenting to fellow professionals, physiotherapists, strength and conditioning experts and other allied health professionals.

Presentations include:

  • 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 - Golf Biodynamics - Understanding and integrating 3D motion capture as part of a multidisciplinary player development system for coaches and allied health professionals. More recently this has involved integrating Trackman and high-speed video capture
  • 2004, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010 - The Golf Athlete - Co-ordinating and presenting for the Brisbane-based 'Golf Athlete' team, presenting golf swing fundamentals as part of the integrated approach to elite player development
  • 2006, 2007, 2008 - International Physiotherapy Systems - Presenting to the delegates of Ramsay McMaster the principles and benefits of 3D motion capture as part of the integrated system for player development.
  • 2008 - TGA/Harvey Newton - Presenting the integration of video/3D capture to understand efficient technique and identify physical and technical limitation.

As well as being a Surrey County Golf Union coach since 2006, Stewart also acts as a consultant supplying GBD 3D analysis and reports for the Men's, Boys' and Academy squad players of the Scottish Golf Union, Sussex Junior under 14/16/18 squads, Kent Boys Squads, Devon County Men's and Boys' squads and Essex Girls County squad. Previously he supplied data for the Cambridgeshire Ladies Squad (2007) as well as being technical consultant to the University of Newport's scholarship programme in 2007/2008.

Stewart has always been passionate about coaching and consulting with players and coaches of all levels. He presently coaches and has provided services to several players from the European, Seniors, Ladies and Challenge Tours.
