Adam Glass - about me . . .
Since April 2013 I have been Head Professional at De Vere Wokefield Park, I am an avid fitness fanatic, a Reading FC fan and enjoy travelling.
My own involvement in golf really began when I joined Reading Golf Club as a 13-year-old.
Spending much of my time practicing I was able to reduce my handicap down to 2 by the time I was 17, and along the way achieved a fair amount of success in club and local competitions, this desire to get better and understand the game would eventually culminate in a desire to teach golf.
After leaving Chiltern Edge School, Oxfordshire in 1999, I began working in the golf Industry, and have been involved with golf for the last 14 years.
I have been fortunate enough to hold positions at The Grove and Stoke Park Club both 5-star golf resorts where I feel I learnt so much about the industry by being around more experienced professionals.
I have always enjoyed playing and had a successful amateur record, having an unbeaten singles record playing for the BB&O County Team in 2008, then being awarded County Player of the Year in 2008.
Winning the prestigious Frilford Gold Medal in 2007 with rounds of 70 on the Blue and 69 on the Green, a total of 3 under par was one of my most satisfying results.
In 2009 off a handicap of plus 2 I decided to turn professional, and started by playing some of the smaller mini tours with some good finishes and winning modest amounts.
During this period, in a search to be more consistent, I began to research and understand the technicalities of the golf swing, very much influenced by a number of experienced coaches.
Over the last few years I acquired a vast depth of knowledge which has meant I have spent less time playing and considerably more time communicating my knowledge to others, in an effort to make the game more fun and enjoyable for those who play it.
