MEET THE COACHES: AXEL JUNG

Name

Hi, my name is Axel Jung 

How long have you been playing golf

About 15 years. My first round was with my mum's old Persimmon Clubs. 

How long have you been coaching

5 years. 

What do you love most about Moore Park Golf

Moore Park Golf is the best golf facility (new driving range, short game area and 18 hole course) with a great location, convenient car park and open until late. From an instructor's point of view, you can't find anywhere better to teach all aspects of the game. 

What is your favourite hole and why

I love and hate hole 10, par 3. This is a narrow and undulating hole guarded by bunkers and if the wind picks up it's even harder! 

How would you best describe your coaching style

There are infinite ways to swing the club as long as it’s efficient, powerful and repeatable. My coaching style is to help students to find efficient ways to improve their game.

Do you have a particular star pupil

I had one client who took up golf at the age of 23. I helped him develop his swing and he is now a qualified Korean PGA member. 

What is your most memorable golfing moment

Playing in the NSW PGA Championship 2014.

What is the best piece of advice you would give someone wanting to follow in your footsteps and become a Pro
