PRo GolF Coaching

Hi, my name is Ollie Woj, and I am a Professional Golf Coach based in Melbourne, Australia.

Originally from Lancaster in the North-West of England. I started playing golf at the ripe old age of 6 and enjoyed many golfing accolades as an amateur golfer. 

I had many successes, which included numerous junior tournaments, selection to represent the City of Lancaster in The Youth Games, qualifying for the final of a prestigious golf tournament (held in Mauritius), representing the County of Lancashire in many county youth matches, and back-to-back club champion successes at the Lancaster Golf Club.

A professional playing career followed, which peaked when I qualified for the final qualifying stage of The British Open in 2007. Although I didn’t quite make it to The Open that year, it was a great learning experience, with the biggest lesson coming from the realisation that my true passion wasn’t going to come from playing golf at the elite level but more from helping others achieve the success they are looking for with their golf game.

My love affair with Australia began in 2007 following a 6-month work/holiday experience which shaped my life forever. In 2010 the decision was made to emigrate to Australia for what was to be 8 incredible years coaching golf in the stunning city of Sydney, where I was to meet my amazing wife. A four-year stint in London followed where I was awarded ‘Advanced’ PGA Professional status with the UK & Ireland PGA for my dedication to the game and what I have been able to give back to the sport, which has given so much to me throughout my life. Numerous professional development accreditations were achieved over the coming years, including Certification to the David Leadbetter Golf Academy as a fully Certified Leadbetter Coach.

The pull of Australia was never far from our minds, and the decision was made to return once again to the sunnier climates and favourable golfing conditions Australia has to offer, this time Melbourne was the destination.

I now call the world-renowned The Metropolitan Golf Club in the famous Melbourne Sandbelt region my home.

As a keen triathlete, living near the beach suits my love of the outdoors, and you will often find me at the beach on my SUP board as the sun rises. My passion for all things fitness, health, mind & body can often be felt in my approach to coaching golf, as it’s not always just technique that gets the improvements you are looking for from your game!

My PASSION FOR GOLF IS NOT MY ONLY LOVE

The foundation of my coaching is to firstly coach the student followed by the skill. This is an important mantra for me as we all learn in different ways and have different goals – something about testimonials backing this up?

Ultimately to develop more consistency, you must firstly develop more skill.
