Adrian Buchner - Head of Pearl Valley Junior Academy
While at school I played rugby, cricket, hockey and golf. It was during my high school days when I decided I wanted take my golf seriously and further my passion for the game.
In 2013 I joined SwingFit to study my 3 year PGA Diploma. My main goal was to try and turn Professional and play golf on Tour and use my PGA Diploma as a backup if I was unable to reach my goals.
During my 3 years my golf improved drastically, however I developed a keen interest in coaching. After passing my PGA Diploma in 2015, I was lucky enough to do my apprenticeship under James Wade at Pearl Valley. This created a new pathway for me to become a PGA Coach working with some of the best coaches in the country.
I completed my Apprenticeship in 2016. thereafter I was employed full-time by SwingFit to be part of the coaching team based at Pearl Valley. SwingFit has provided me with excellent tools and experience to be the best PGA professional I could possibly be.
I am currently still working at SwingFit, heading up the Pearl Valley Junior Academy, as well coaching & lecturing our current crop of PGA Diploma students.
