Created and developed by Short Game Secrets co-founder James Ridyard over the past 10 years the WedgeMatrix Instructor Program is setting a new bar for golf instructor education. Receiving rave reviews from those who have already attended in the UK, US and Continental Europe it promises to be the market leader in teaching Short Game performance for a long time to come.

This is a deep dive into the underlying principles that James uses to get the best out of any student in front of him, based upon years of study, research and testing at every level.

Training will take place via series of pre-recorded webinars, hours of recordings from previous live training sessions and some live sessions over a six-week period. Material from previous training days will be added as and when appropriate. Live webinars will be made available 24 hours after they happen.

One core webinar each week with a live follow up to discuss and share your studies. Every time a new video is added you will be automatically notified via the email used to sign up.

By week six you will have 50+ videos at your disposal.

You will be expected to pass an online exam and prepare a number of case studies including a live lesson before you finally gain your accreditation. We currently have three levels of instructor; Attendee, Accredited and Authorized.

Following on from your attendance you will be invited to join an exclusive Coachnow Team for all who have taken part where we share ideas and answer any questions you may have.

In order to become fully Authorized you will need to attend a live training session at some point, this will require no extra fee beyond any attendee charges the host facility impose.
