Joe Feather is a PGA Professional at Leeds Golf Centre in North Leeds. In 2014 he decided to call time on his playing career after a string of back injuries, having already completed his PGA training as North Region trainee of the year in 2011, he turned his focus to coaching. Since then he has trained and qualified as Leadbetter Academy instructor, planned and implemented a clear and inviting junior pathway at Leeds Golf Centre, and has taken up the role of coach with several elite amateur and professional golfers, using both his knowledge of the techniques necessary, as well as his experience of life on the road and playing under extreme pressure to help his players perform to the best of their ability.
Having turned professional in 2007, Joe now has a number of years as a pro, both as a player, and as a coach under his belt. His thirst for knowledge and improvement of his depth of understanding has kept him researching and developing more effective drills and delivery of his lessons. His diverse client base is probably his proudest attribute, taking his role as a coach to beginners just as seriously as his work with tour professionals, in his words "Your first golf lesson is probably your most important!"
In 2016 he planned and conducted the inaugural "Up to Scratch" challenge at Leeds Golf Centre, with the help of fellow academy instructors. He is dedicated to making golf accessible and fun for golfers of all ages, and the program proved to be a huge success. So much so 2017 will see four separate up to scratch events run for people of all ages.
