About

Our Story

Golf Insider was founded in 2018, by Will Shaw while he was lecturing at university. The goal was to provide an evidence-based resource of golf content that he wished he’d had as a 13-year-old taking up the game of golf and wanting to become a golf professional.

Golf Insider has since grown to a team of golf professionals who contribute to the content creation process, writing and testing golf equipment, and creating tools and resources to help golfers shoot lower scores.
