In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I have the pleasure in speaking to Director of Setanta College, Dr. Liam Hennessy. Dr. Hennessy has coached a number of world class athletes including three-time major winning golfer, Padraig Harrington. As well as coaching, Dr. Hennessy is Director of Setanta College in Ireland which offers numerous courses in strength and conditioning and regularly invites world leading coaches to speak at its workshops and conference.

In this episode, you will learn –

  • Who is Dr. Liam Hennessy (background, education and current roles)
  • The danger in an uninformed reliance on technology
  • What’s happening with the hamstring?
  • Why experience should be more valued in coaching
  • Setanta College and what is missing from the education system when it comes to developing the practitioners and researchers of the future.
  • Working with golfers – what is important?
