Meet the Coach


Tom Parkin spent most of his life in Leicester, England. He took up golf at the age of 9 and played for both junior and adult teams at his resident club of Whetstone Golf Club. He trained as a golf coach through the WGTF and upon moving to the U.S. is a registered golf coach with the USGTF. He studied Design Technology Education at Sheffield Hallam University to gain his Qualified Teacher Status. Tom has always had an interest in sports and fitness. He has completed the following training courses: personal training, Power Plate for golf, sports conditioning, kettlebell instructor course and pre- and post-natal fitness.

Tom’s students vary from High School golf team players and Junior World Championship competitors to golfers just beginning to play golf or preparing for their first tournament.

Tom has combined his passion and experience for golf, his teacher training and fitness knowledge to provide a highly effective golf coaching service at The Vineyard in San Diego, California.
