Clubface Alignment:
Don't just stab in the dark
Click here for this lesson

It's important to note that your ball will finish where your clubface is aiming. If you are striving to improve your golf then it is vital that you are correctly aligned
When you hit a wayward shot, where do you
lay the blame? If you are pointing at your grip, stance, left shoulder or hips then maybe you are looking a little too far from home.

Posture: Alive and Kicking
Click here for this lesson

Golf is an explosive, target orientated sport and so your body should be dynamically prepared, ready to swing into action.
Not relaxed but ready.
How can you achieve this if you have to stick your backside out and force your spine to be as straight and stiff as a snooker cue?

Testimonials from
some of the best...

Lee has worked with some of the best coaches in the world over an 11 year period

Alan Thompson

English National Elite Coach

I have known Lee for seven years as a pupil and a Golf Professional. During this time I have seen him work diligently on his technique with an intensity and commitment given to very few people. This same quality is evident in his conduct around the Pro’s Shop and in his own teaching where I know his attention to detail and enthusiasm for the job at hand ensures that his customers and clients receive the very best of attention. (1998)

Alan Thompson has inspired many England International junior boys and several England girls and ladies, including two Curtis Cup players. He is coach to many European Tour Professionals, PGA Professionals and to the England National Elite A Squad. Much of the future of English golf rests in his hands.

Denis Pugh
PGA *MASTER Professional


Lee Kopanski regularly visited me for golf instruction over a 14 month period during the time I was based at the Warren Golf Club inEssex. Lee made a big effort to travel from his home in the North of England and thereby proved his commitment to improving both his golf swing and his knowledge of teaching. His understanding of the mechanics of the golf swing plus his interest in the skills of teaching will, I am sure, serve him well within the future. (2000)

Denis Pugh is the renowned golf analyst on Sky Sports Golf Night and was a former tour player himself. He has coached over 150 Tour Professionals since 1988. He is most famous for his long time association with 8 time European Order of Merit winner and Ryder Cup star Colin Montgomerie.

*PGA Master Professional.

Awarded by the PGA to qualified Members held in high national or international esteem. Members that have made a significant contribution to the development of golf as a player, coach, administrator, or course designer. A leader in theirfield for a number of years. An innovator.

Bill Ferguson
PGA *MASTER Professional

I have known Lee Kopanski for the past two years and I have also taught him not only about his personal golf swing, but also the golf swing in general. I found him to be a very personable young man, articulate and well mannered. (2000)

There are not many people that can claim Colin Montgomerie as a caddy but Bill Ferguson can. Bill was Monty's first mentor as a nine-year old and coached him well into his professional career. Bill Ferguson's playing highlights include lifting the PGA Club Professional Championship in 1976. He was the English national coach for 25 years and is a past Yorkshire captain of the PGA as well as serving on the executive committee.
 Bill Ferguson has been a mentor to many great players including; Colin Montgomerie, Ian Woosnam, Howard Clark, Darren Clarke, Seve Ballesteros and Paul Broadhurst.

 Signature Golf Swing

3 Steps Correct

testimonial In two lessons he was able to show me how simple the golf swing can be. I was not only impressed by the simplicity of Lee's teaching methods, but also by his enthusiasm, dedication and love of golf. His book is a masterpiece. In one season alone I dropped 20 shots and I know that thanks to his teaching system I will be a single handicapper by the end of this season. Thank you Lee, you are the best!

testimonial My slice was killing my game and was losing me massive amounts of distance. I had one lesson with Lee and immediately started to hit longer and straighter than ever. My drivers were accurate, the Slice had vanished and my new found length left my playing partners scratching their heads! Lee's teaching methods worked wonders for me and the highlight was being presented with the "green jacket" and crowned Austrian Seniors Masters Champion 2010

testimonial I have played golf and taken lessons for over twenty years so there's not much that I haven't heard or tried. Lee's teaching methods on the other hand were a breath of fresh air. I don't even think about my hips, shoulders or any of the other complicated stuff. In just one season I dropped from Hcp 17 to Hcp 8 using his guides. I am made up, I owe you a few beers, cheers Lee! 


Joe Doyle
London, England

testimonial As a scratch player, for many years I have always found it hard to control the clubface throughout my backswing. I bought your Signature Golf Swing 3 months ago, got to say the lesson on wrist hinge was worth every cent, top class. My ball striking and consistency off the tee is the best it's ever been, awesome!


Jason Green
Sidney, Australia

testimonial Hello Lee,
I have searched far and wide and tried many things before discovering your Signature Golf Swing teaching system. I followed it exactly, lesson for lesson, it is amazing how easy golf can be! At the beginning of the season a par 72 course took me 127 shots, but thanks to your book, at the end of the season I am regularly playing rounds of 90 shots. Brilliant!

testimonial Signature Golf Swing was recommended to me by a golf buddy, actually it was my last hope. I played soccer, tennis and basketball all to a high standard but golf just killed me. Lee, I have watched DVD's, read books and searched the internet but nothing made sense. I studied sports science so I know what I am talking about, your methods make complicated, simple! When can I get your lessons on DVD? You have turned a hacker into a 12 Hc in one season! Rock on!


Brendan Jackson
New York

testimonial It is essential that your basic golf techniques are correct, especially when you don't have the opportunity to play as regularly as you'D like. Lee knows exactly how to focus on the main elements of a shot and explains point for point what needs to be done. When my game is not going as well as I would like I remind myself of his words and find my way back into the game


Jürgen Demüth

Jürgen Demuth
Vienna, Austria

testimonial  I thought I was a "has been" having once played off a steady 2 Hcp then I totally lost it. My handicap crept up every year and it was that bad at one stage that I didn't touch a club for 8 months. I found Lee Kopanski on the web and thought he would be churning out the same old techniques that I was tired of hearing about. Got to give it to you Lee, your lessons are top notch and for the most part new to me. The lesson on core rotation is simply fantastic and with the help of your Signature Golf Swing book I am back to striking the ball just like the good old days and I'm now chasing that 2 Hcp.


Simon Evans

Signature Golf Swing has allowed me to take a major step forward in my golf. I have focused on a few extremely important points and have noticed a marked improvement in my swing. At the end of the day I am happy with my score and much more importantly, my golf is great fun!
