Harold Swash

Harold Swash was been involved in the golf industry for over 40 years as a coach, designer of putters and training aids.

Born in Birmingham, and a proud supporter of Aston Villa Football Team Harold Harold resided in southport most of his life before passing away in Dec 2016. 

Before becoming a putting coach to Padraig Harrington as well as many other famous tournament professionals Harolds original trade was that of a production engineer. It was Harolds knoweldge and expertise in this field coupled with his passion for the game that inspired him to design his first putter as part of the Align Range back in the 1960's.

As Harolds involvement in the game intensified, through working with many of the European Tours Professionals with his range of putters his understanding of the determining factors to make a succesful putt grew and Harolds own coaching beliefs emerged.

It is these coaching beliefs that has helped him further develop his range of putters and training aids. The Develpment of the C Groove putter is a reflection of Harolds guiding principle in his coaching, the importance of ball roll. A principle that is still held firmly within the putting coaching philosophy..

Harolds uncomplicated and common sense approach to the 'game within the game' led to many of the worlds leading players seeking his advice, and creating a reputation as a leading putting coach around the world.

Together with his protégé Phillip Kenyon, he packaged together his experience and expertise to to bring the golfing public a unique coaching experience at their purpose built facility, the Harold Swash Putting School of Excellence.
