Inside the Mind of David Leadbetter Featuring Special Guests, Andrew Nicholson, J.J. Rivet and Paul McVeigh

During David Leadbetter's career, he has coached 24 players to Major Championships, 7 players to World No.1 but perhaps his greatest contribution to those within the golf industry is the number of instructors he has trained and certified who have gone on to have successful careers.

Andrew Nicholson, one of LGA's most experienced golf coaches and head of European Instruction will be speaking on developing juniors into top 100 players. Andrew has worldwide experience coaching in the U.S., Europe, Asia and the UK. His home Academy at Wynyard, North East England is the longest-serving Leadbetter Academy in Europe. Andrew is acknowledged as one of the finest coaches in his field and specializes in elite development. He is a Tour coach, England golf coach, and past BBC swing analyst. 

J.J. Rivet is one of the world's leading authorities on how the body moves during athletic activities, particularly during the golf swing. He specializes in detecting inefficient movement and offering solutions on how to improve the required action. He has worked with numerous Tour players, and during the development of the A Swing, completed a full biomechanical study and evaluation. J.J. is the Head of the Under Armour Innovation Center in Europe, as well as the Head of Biomechanics & Sports Performance at the European Tour Performance Institute. 

Paul McVeigh is a former EPL football player for clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur and Norwich City. While playing professionally for nearly 20 years, Paul was able to gain 40 caps internationally for Northern Ireland, winning 2 league championships. Paul recently finished his studies in Sports Psychology, becoming the first person in history to play in the premier league and go on to earn a Master's degree. A published author of 'The Stupid Footballer is Dead' and Founder of 'ThinkPro', Paul will offer a unique view to the High-Performing Mind and capture you with his best practices.
