LPH catches up with David Orr

David Orr has coached over 60 tour players worldwide and has over 9 years experience in putting research.

He also has a Flatstick Academy that allows coaches to pass his accreditation.

In October 2016, I attended and passed the 3 day accreditation to become a Flatstick Academy Coach; I am currently 1 of only 2 Flatstick coaches the Uk, the other being Phil Kenyon, who coaches Rory Mcilroy, Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose, amongst many others.

Last week I took the opportunity to visit David whilst he was in the U.K. It was a great to spend some 'one on one' time with him to discuss the many aspects of putting as well as his level 2 accreditation that I am planning to do in October this year.

I have to say spending time with David is a absolute honour, with his wealth of knowledge and experience he has helped me gain experience and grow as a coach.

One of the the best things I have learnt and since implemented in my coaching routine is the ‘Eye Test’ template. It allows me to see the ‘bigger picture’ by observing 7 key putting aspects:


  • Mental state
  • Putting Skills (Read, Aim, Line and Speed)
  • Stroke Fundamentals
  • Your Putter
  • Generating Speed
  • Managing Direction
  • Moving Strategy


I do strongly believe that becoming a Flatstick Academy Coach has taken my coaching to the next level, helping me ensure that my pupils are changing the correct aspects of their putting and thus improving to hole more putts.


If you would like to improve your putting a initial assessment on the SAM Putt Lab session with the eye test is the place to start lowering your scores
