Testimonials

Having coached many different types of golfer, from tour professionals to social golfer, here are just a few things that some of Davids clients have to say...

Russell Knox - PGA Tour Winner

“Dave is an extremely colourful character, very easy to get along with and very knowledgeable.  We spent a bit of time together, and he is a great coach and had helped a lot of players.  He has helped my game, and he is a great guy.  

I played Nairn Dunbar last year before the Scottish Open, and I saw him there so it was great to catch up with him”.

Malcolm Isaacs - Scottish Golf Professional Based in Norway

“Doing my PGA training under David was a fantastic apprenticeship.  

 

I saw each and every day that being a teacher was not just about theory, but about giving 110% of your energy and really making a connection with your student.  Let’s just say that you are not in for a boring lesson with DT!”

Andrew Rollo – PGA PRO - Director of Golf Operations, Shortland Waters Golf Club, Australia

"David’s resume proves him to be a fantastically skilled coach. Having worked as David’s assistant I have been privileged to observe him in full flow on the practice tee, passing on his mastery of this great game. From beginner to national champion, I cannot recommend David’s coaching highly enough.

Learning form a masterful coach with the Cairngorms in the background is what golf in Scotland is all about, and whether your goal is to hole a few more putts, or to win The Open, David is the coach you need to see”.

Sandy Scott - Scottish Golfer Based in Texas, USA

“Dave is the most enthusiastic golf coach I have ever met. He is determined to make his players better and he makes sure he is giving them the right information.

 

I have loved going to see Dave for coaching as I’m always learning. He has such a great knowledge of the game and from years of picking his brain it’s made me the player I am today.

 

He is a fantastic friend and has played a huge role in the development of my golf game and me as a person.”

Liam MacLeod - 2018 Brora Golf Club Champion

“Since working with David in early summer 2018, I have got a better understanding of my golf swing and how to practice in the most effective way.  But, more importantly, I redeveloped my passion for the game of golf”.

William Nicol - 15 Years Old

“The Legend” that is David Torrance......

 

I have known David Torrance since I was 6 years old and have been extremely fortunate to have had him as my golf coach since then. Over the years he has taught me how to perfect my swing and got me from a 36 handicap to a handicap of 3 at this present time, looking to be scratch or plus handicap by end of next season.

 

I have also made it into the North District Golf Squads and Golf Academy hoping to progress through the ranks and follow in the footsteps of Russell Knox who was also coached by David and is now a professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour alongside big names such as Tiger Woods, Justin Rose & Phil Mickelson to name but a few.

 

He is a fantastic coach and a great support and can help you with everything GOLF. If you listen to David you will not go far wrong......He can observe you from a distance and know instinctively what needs to be worked on or tweaked to enhance your swing. The wealth of experience and knowledge that David has is without doubt the best in Scotland. My golfing life is much richer for having David in it and I am so thankful for all the fun, hard work and laughter that we have had together.

David is out in all weathers with a dedication to the teaching of golf. He is passionate about the game and that is what makes him such a great coach.

A lesson with David will enhance your swing and you will definitely come away with a true understanding of what you need to work on. He sees things that other coaches don’t see.

 

So get your lesson booked!! You won’t regret it!!

Fraser Owenson (Junior Member of Nairn Golf Club)

“Having received coaching for over 4 years from David, I have seen a rapid improvement in my golf and overall understanding of the game.

 

I had previously seen other coaches before finding David, although now will never see the need to change. His approach and dedication to coaching is exceptional, while his motivation to see his pupils improve is paramount.

 

He is able to make the complex aspects of the swing seem simple for all ages and skill levels, while helping add to players understanding so they can improve throughout the future”.
