NatWest and Lombard reduce bad weather handicap for golf coach

Golfers can work on their swing regardless of the weather following development of a state of the art indoors golf studio through the Government’s Funding for Lending Scheme.

Unreliable weather has limited Parsley to providing only six months of coaching a year. But funding provided through NatWest and Lombard has enabled him to incorporate indoor technology into his coaching techniques, enabling him to offer year-round professional coaching to a more technical level.

Unreliable weather has limited Parsley to providing only six months of coaching a year. But funding provided through NatWest and Lombard has enabled him to incorporate indoor technology into his coaching techniques, enabling him to offer year-round professional coaching to a more technical level.

A NatWest customer for over a decade, Parsley worked with Regional Manager Hugh Downer and Lombard Relationship Manager Ian Moore on hire purchase funding to build a new studio and secure a high technology golf simulator and video analysis system. Under the Funding for Lending Scheme, NatWest and Lombard each provided MJP Golf with £8,000.

The golf simulator technology records and analyses the flight and spin-rate of the projected golf ball, creating a visual representation of its flight while the high-speed cameras and coaching software allows Matt to analyse in detail and slow motion his client’s swing technique.

Parsley says: “The response has been fantastic, people have been blown away by the studio and the technology. It has refreshed me as a coach and my clients are coming on in leaps and bounds. It’s so important to invest in your business and its future.”

Parsley will be staging a number of community events at his studio where he hopes to encourage young starters to take up the sport. His aim is to double his overall number of tutees.

Downer said: “Matt is so enthusiastic about his business and he wanted to provide a first quality service. I am so pleased to have been in a situation to help Matt achieve this. With a year-round coaching system, Matt’s business is undoubtedly set to grow.”

Funding for Lending

The RBS Group, of which NatWest is part, was first to take advantage of  the Funding for Lending Scheme, cutting interest rates on £2.5bn of loans for small and medium sized businesses by an average of 1%.

Since its launch in August 2012, RBS Group has allocated £1.6bn of funds to 11,000 customers.
