• You won't go wrong with Darius Gear. I first met Darius when my son (aged 6 at the time) was doing some junior clinics at Sydney Olympic Park. We have been seeing Darius ever since. He has a genuine passion for teaching and ability to explain things in a simple way - especially important when you're teaching kids (or not very technical parents!). He keeps it fun and introduces a lot of variety in his drills. My son is now 12 and although only a small kid (hits 165m off the tee), he plays off 19. His progress has been steady under the guidance of Darius. One of things that stands out for me in his teaching techniques is that he understands it's not a case of one size fits all and works to adjust natural tendencies, so you end up with an effective swing - albeit with your own flavour. Joseph Mikhael ( actually now at Wollongong GC )
  • My name is Alan Zhu. I began having lessons with Darius when I was 4yo. By the time I was 6 I was playing on the golf course and scored 130 shots around Terry Hills Country Club from social tees. When I was 9yo I scored 99 around NSW golf course from members tees. When I was 10yo I shot 85 around the difficult Concord Golf club from members tees. At the age of 12 Darius visited me in my native home of Beijing, and after 3 weeks of training I had 5 birdies during a round of golf to shoot 70 off the stick around the Jack Nicklaus designed "Shadow Creek" Golf course. Darius has a special way to help me with my golf to ensure I can achieve results at a high level of competition while remaining mentally/emotionally stable. I have learned all that is necessary to become a champion golfer and I intend to follow his advise so that I can realise my potential.

  • Played with June today at North Ryde. You've developed a nice swing on her! She won the women's with 35 points. I shot 79 off the stick for 42 points and lost on count back but clearly a good days golf. After a +10 at Mona vale about 10 days ago its starting to come together after your help and a consistent 12 months of playing. Happy New Year and see you soon.

  • I use Darius too, great guy, who puts it in Laymans terms that seem easy to understand and carry out.

Am off to a lesson with him tomorrow. Grunt
