TrackMan User since:
When and why did you start playing golf?
I played my first shots at 6 y.o. then, after years of tennis and Tae-Kwon-Do, at 13 y.o. I decided that golf would have been the sport of my life.
What is your HCP?
I am a Pro.
Which is your favorite golf course?
In Italy my preferred are Royal Park I Roveri (Trent Jones Course) and Golf Nazionale (Le Querce), among the several courses I played internationally Jumeirah Earth Course impressed me a lot.
Do you have a favorite coach you follow and why?
Since my teaching experience is quite short (3 years) I still am in a period during which I try to learn from any great international coach. There are those specialized in long game, other in short game, other in putt, and I pick precious information from any of them.
Who is your favorite player and why?
The stronger “brain-golfer” is Jordan Spieth, as “power-golfer” I like very much Brooks Koepka, and a wonderful example of style and rhythm is Martin Kaymer.
What is your best golf related achievement?
Thanks to my 5 years agonistic experience as a Pro, as soon as I started my teaching career (I was only 24th) I was immediately appreciated and followed by my trainees (even if they were decades elder than me) for the “freshness” of my instruction.
As a golf coach, what is the most common mistake among players you see?
Thinking that a faster downswing means a longer shot.
What are your greatest professional strengths?
Empathy, introspection, personalized solutions for different players and problems.

How often do you play golf yourself?
A couple of times weekly
What has changed since you started working with a TrackMan?
A higher self-consciousness (mine and of my trainees) about the swing mistakes, evidenced by indisputable data.
Which is your favourite TrackMan feature, and why?
The option to catch simultaneous face-on and down-the-line videos, and the feature to visualize face and club path direction lines, give both an immediate teaching input to the learner.
How and where can golfers get in touch with you?
Directly on my smartphone (+39-380-7253679) or through an email message (email@example.com)
Do you have any suggestions, how TrackMan can do better or differently?
It has to go on improving the putt session (we need information on the club, and not only on the ball), and should try to relieve data on the accuracy of the address (the majority of amateur players swings well to the wrong direction …)
Would you like to be the next TrackMan coach of the month?
All you have to do is sign up on TrackMan University and complete Level 1,
we will randomly pick a new coach every month.
