About Daniel Wood PGA

From as early as I can remember or indeed as early as I could walk a golf club has never been far from my hand, coming from a golfing family with my Gran, Mum and Dad all very competent players there was no shortage of opportunities to get out into the course.

Starting out at Duns Golf Club I progressed through the ranks, capturing success at Duns Junior Championships & County Level before picking up back to back Men’s Club Championships – after this in 2009 I turned Professional and began my PGA training at Eyemouth Golf Club.
 In 2011 I became a fully qualified PGA Professional, in 2016 I took over as Club Professional at Hirsel Golf Club , in 2022 I was awarded Advanced PGA Professional an achievement I am very proud of.
In January 2024 I moved to full time coaching from our brand new golf studio at Putton Mill Driving Range.
My Professional playing career Highlights are a Winning in 2011 – Insch Pro-Am and seven top 5 finishes, must notabiliy the 3rd place in the 2016 Deer Park Masters (-5). Fast forward to 2022 and despite the lack of golf and my only PGA Event in 2 years I managed to put a round of -5 together to Win the Matfen Hall PGA Pro Am.

Despite a lack of time, I feel it’s important that I continue to play and push my own game, wether it’s competitively, socially or during playing lessons.

I love working with golfers of all levels to help them to maximise their potential and I feel I’ve developed a way of explaining the intricacies of the golf swing and the techniques required to successfully manage your way around a golf course, that puts people at their ease and frees them up to learn and develop.
