About Dan Whittaker Golf

DAN started his golfing career aged 12 at Sale Golf Club where his dad, an ex Professional footballer with Blackburn Rovers, was a member. He quickly became hooked on the game and saw his handicap reduce rapidly. He represented his county and following a good junior career he turned professional aged 19.

Upon turning Pro, Dan decided to dedicate himself to his exams and stopped playing for a couple of years in order to concentrate on his studies. It was during this time that he took up athletics, quickly realised he had an aptitude for this and went on to represent the North Of England.

Following the completion of his exams, which he passed with a distinction, Dan went on to become the youngest head Professional in his area at the time (aged 24). Dan developed a teaching studio and quickly realised that this was where his true passions lay. He began teaching several Professionals in the area and some good amateurs. He started to study the swing in much greater depths and made use of well known internet forums to discuss and debate the swing at length. As a result of his online presence he has developed relationships with many notable pros.

Dan left his head Pro's job to give 100% of his attention to his main love - coaching.

He joined Altrincham Driving Range, where he still is today as the Head Coach. He is now coaching in excess of 100 golfers with handicaps of less than 5 and over 150 golfers holding a handicap in single figures. Along with this he is now coaching many professionals, view Dan's Testimonials page to hear what his students have to say. He has also seen his students go on to win every major honour in the local area and win: National; International and Professional events.

Dan has grown an Academy at his base in Altrincham where he has 3 Professionals working for him. Dan is continuing to develop his coaching knowledge as he says,

The golf swing is a jigsaw puzzle that can never be finished.

Dan is excited to see what the future has in store. Watch out for many of the changes coming here...
