Lead­ing coach David Lead­bet­ter has re­cently opened a new academy at the Evian Re­sort.


David Lead­bet­ter has en­joyed a long­stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with the Evian Re­sort. In ad­di­tion to work­ing with many lead­ing LPGA Tour play­ers, Lead­bet­ter guided Suzann Pet­tersen and Ly­dia Ko to their vic­to­ries at the highly pres­ti­gious Evian Cham­pi­onship – one of the five ma­jors in the women’s game.

Now with the launch of The Lead­bet­ter Academy at Evian Re­sort’s beau­ti­ful train­ing course, play­ers of all abil­i­ties – from be­gin­ners to as­pir­ing pro­fes­sion­als – will be able to ben­e­fit from the world’s most fa­mous coach’s key teach­ing philoso­phies. The new fa­cil­ity of­fers cov­ered and out­door bays and the very lat­est game-im­prove­ment tech­nolo­gies, in­clud­ing Track­man, Bodi­trak, SAM Put­tLab, MySwing, and a Wel­lPutt in­door putting green. The new academy is man­aged by the re­sort’s head pro­fes­sional, Jean-Philippe Ser­res, who has spent 12 years learning David’s teach­ing prin­ci­ples.

At this year’s Evian Cham­pi­onship in Septem­ber, David Lead­bet­ter will open a lux­ury suite bear­ing his name at the Hô­tel Royal. Guests will find some of his per­sonal items, as well as tai­lored tips and ser­vices, in­clud­ing golf lessons avail­able at the ho­tel it­self.
