Known to all as JJ, he works on maintaining a sound Bio mechanic platform which allows the body to make and efficient and consistent movement during the swing which in turn helps to prevent injuries and also to achieve better sequencing and foot grounding, which in turn creates better power and accuracy.

JJ and the National Squad were working with US Masters Champion Mike Weir, Raphael Jacquelin and Alexander Levy prior to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, the first event of the Desert Swing.

The EGF National Squad works with JJ on a regular basis. The knowledge gained from these lessons is invaluable. This is timely training, as the UAE National Teams will be traveling Bahrain and Qatar for the GCC Championships in the next two months.

More information on the teams and the events will be released next week.
