When and why did you start playing golf?
I started in 1967 because I lived near the Golf course and started making the caddy
What was your HCP when you turned Pro?
Which is your favorite golf course?
In Italy IS MOLAS golf course
Do you have a favorite coach you follow and why?
At this time Niccolo Bisazza because he is TM master. I really appreciate his work and we get in touch for sharing our advancements.
Who is your favorite player and why?
In the past it was S.Ballesteros because he was the driver in Europe of young players like me, making us aware that we could win. Now I follow J. Thomas appreciating his mental attitude during the race.
What is your best golf related achievement?
Unfortunately I played quite always in Italy and sometimes in Europe, but my results As Pro were not so relevant.
As a golf coach, what is the most common mistake among players you see?
The most common mistake that I see is the loss of control of the club face.
What are your greatest professional strengths?
I am fully driven by the passion for this sport, so that I never stop learning and trying to apply new ideas or technologies. This is very important since my final goal is to transfer my knowledge in the most efficient way in order to improve my players.

At least twice a week.
What has changed since you started working with a TrackMan?
The main change regards the mind-set. It’s revolutionary to transmit my ideas and expertise by taking into account quantitative and objective analysis rather than just subjective ones.
Which is your favourite TrackMan feature, and why?
For me it is Face to Path because even beginners can understand. As teacher, I have to stress the efficiency of my methods and measure it by considering the degree of understanding of my different players.
How and where can golfers get in touch with you?
By contacting me by phone (personal mobile phone) or mail or Facebook or contacting the Golf Club
Do you have any suggestions, how TrackMan can do better or differently?
TM for me is working very well I would like to become TM Master. But since I am Italian and I usually teach in my language, I may suggest to think about Multilanguage settings. This may foster a better and quicker understanding of the concepts.
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.
