Highly respected sports speaker, Gary Alliss, embodies British golf. Whether he is playing on the green or coaching the sport's most promising players, Gary is internationally recognised for his unbeatable skill and motivating nature. Titled the PGA King of Swing, audiences of his after dinner speeches find themselves captivated by his presence - they will never forget an evening with a leading figure in sport. Gary's stories originate from the peak of elite sport, inviting after dinner guests to journey through the history of modern golf, starting with his professional debut in 1973.
Gary's coaching style operates under a single philosophy; "keep it simple. My method is anti-method - I teach people not systems and it works because I use words golfers actually understand.” He believes in making calculated decisions, like landing the ball on a flat part of the green to better predict the bounce, an element of his coaching that sets Gart apart from the rest. This methodology also makes its way into his after dinner speeches, as he advises audiences to calculate risk before taking the leap.
Founding the Alliss Golf Academy gave Gary the opportunity to expand his reach. The reputable coaching service invites prospective players to hone their skillset, taking influence from Gary's tried and tested methods. Gary has also worked at a range of top-level golfing clubs, including Ladbrook Park. He was even named Director of the Trevose Golf Club. Such titles combine to increase Gary's reputation as an expert golfer, a trait that sets him apart from other after dinner speakers.
Following the creation of his theses at Warwick University, Gary was promoted to the prestigious PGA Master Professional status. In doing so, he pioneered this professional route for prospective players. Audiences frequently take influence from Gary's journey to success, inspired to break free of the mould and forge their own path to professional prestige. Despite, or possibly due to, his non-traditional career, Gary was titled Golf's Monthly's Top 20 Coaches, for his work as the PGA Club Captain, National Golf Coach to the Slovak Republic and R&A's Golf Development Consultant.
