In the past three decades the high profile golf coach has become a thing.
What was once a behind the scenes job, now often comes with a dash of celebrity and the names of those who work with the game’s best are easily recognisable. But not Denis McDade.
McDade is the very definition of humble, quietly guiding the games of some of Australia’s best players of the past 20 years while simultaneously helping those who struggle to break 90.
He’s also part owner of Yarra Bend golf course in Melbourne and a passionate advocate for junior golf as we find out in this broad ranging discussion with the Thing About Golf podcast host, Rod Morri.
