About Underpin

Underpin is a golf performance & management company

Since our launch in 2019 we have worked with players on all tours who have gone on to gain European Tour cards, compete in major championships & rapidly progress through the world rankings. We also provide world class off course support to players who require this, creating a platform for them to perform where it matters most - on the course.

Why Underpin?

Achieve higher levels of performance

Our role within a player's team is to work closely with not just them but also with their other team members. We offer 3 core player services which help this:

Pure Performance – for the professional looking to work with mental performance coach Duncan McCarthy. Duncan provides coaching, support and direction to the player and, when required, to their team.

Performance Plus – for the professional wanting full off-course management support as well as the benefits of the Pure service. This includes sponsorship opportunities, travel and logistics and an introduction to trusted professional services such as insurance, legal advice and accountancy.

Academy – For newly-turned professionals, elite amateurs & juniors wanting 1-2-1 mental performance coaching with Duncan McCarthy.
