The Experiment: Goodbye and Hello

I am sorry to hear that Carl Watts has decided to step down from the Experiment.  On the positive side though I am very glad to hear that he has decided to do so to spend more time with his family.  I completely believe in balance – in body and in life so this was the right thing to do.

‘ Apologies for the delay in this post
Carl spoke to me after Christmas and said that whilst he was striking the ball better than ever, he had been thinking over the Christmas period that he no longer felt he could commit to the experiment as he didn’t want to spend the time away from his children that competing again could lead to. As a father myself, I had brought this up at the start of our work together and always felt that this would be a problem and so we have brought to an end his experiment. Carl and myself remain good friends which is important to me.

As an aside to this I will continue blogging the progress of a couple of my other golf professional students and look forward to sharing this with you.’

On another note, Andy has asked me to work with himself and a young golfer a view to getting him on Tour in 2 years time.  I am very excited to be part of this team and look forward to documenting our progress in the coming months.
You can follow Andy’s blog at and I will blog on the biomechanical aspects here.

Carl Watts – The Experiment

1997 BMW Open: European Tour Record -24

I am very excited to have been asked to take part in The Experiment with Carl Watts.  This is a challenge to get Carl Watts a European Tour Card in 2014 after 13 years of retirement from professional competition.

Carl will be working with Andy Traynor PGA fellow from a coaching point of view and I will be working with both Andy and Carl to understand what is going in Carl’s body and how it is manifesting itself in his golf game.  We will then together devise a treatment and training plan to get Carls body into balance to give him greater distance and accuracy.

Over the next 12 months you can follow my findings here at PAMO Fit but you can also follow Carl’s personal experience on his blog.  Andy will also be detailing Carl’s journey from a coaches point of view.
