Three times ranking title winner, Marco Fu has teamed up with SightRight.
The hallmark of Fu’s game throughout his 20 year career has been his impressive break building and he is confident his whole game, in particular his long game, will improve through using the SightRight Coaching methods.
Despite winning the Scottish Open at the end of 2016 and finishing a career high of 6th in the one year prize money list at the end of 2017, the last 12 months, for various reasons, have been disappointing for Fu.
However, SightRight’s founder Stephen Feeney and Hong Kong’s Head Coach Wayne
Griffiths, feel SightRight Coaching offers the opportunity to significantly strengthen key parts of his game, and together they have all set sights on Fu winning more major titles in the near future.
Over the last 20 years Feeney has worked with several legends of the game and many of the world’s top snooker professionals are now using his SightRight Methods, with 27 Titles and 2 World Championships captured to date.
Feeney was the architect behind Bingham’s rise to success, working with him for 5 years, during which time Bingham captured a massive 9 titles from 14 Finals, including the 2015 World Championship.
He is also the man behind the rejuvenation of Mark Williams’ career, who only a year ago was thinking about giving up the game! In an amazing season, Williams has since won 4 titles, including the 2018 World Snooker Championship and Feeney has now coached 2 World Snooker Champions in the last 4 years with his SightRight Methods.
With his unique coaching expertise across three wonderful sports, Feeney has coached and inspired many of the world’s top snooker, darts and golf stars. In Golf, he has worked with Ryder Cup stars – Darren Clarke (2008 Asian Open & 2008 KLM Open, going on to win the 2011 Open) and Stevie Gallacher when winning back to back Dubai Desert Classics and a World No.1 Golf Junior.
“I am very pleased to announce that I have recently agreed to work more closely with Stephen Feeney and his SightRight Team.
SightRight have agreed to help me as sighting and alignment consultants for the coming season. We will focus on improving my consistency in selecting and sighting the correct line of aim – an area that has always fascinated me.
During my enforced lay off from competitive snooker earlier this year, I took the chance to talk in detail with my coach about my future goals and my plans to achieve them. As part of this discussion it was decided, if possible, that I would seek to work with SightRight as part of our overall strategy.
Fortunately, Stephen Feeney was keen to work with me too, and we have now started a working partnership that developed in preparation for the recent World Championships, and will continue in earnest for the 2018/19 season.
Even in the short time I have spent working with SightRight, I can clearly see the simple logic in the whole process and how it has the potential to improve my game considerably. I now look forward to building on this knowledge in the coming months as I try to get used to some of the changes I will need to introduce.
For all other areas of my development I will continue to be supported as normal by the Hong Kong Sports Institute and their Head Coach, Wayne Griffiths.
Given Mark Williams’ fantastic achievement in Sheffield and all the excellent results enjoyed by Stephen Feeney’s SightRight players, past and present, this is a very exciting development for me and I hope it will go some way to helping me deliver the goals I still have within the game.” said Fu.
“I am very excited to welcome Marco on board Team SightRight. Marco is an amazing talent and a huge ambassador for Hong Kong with an incredible team around him in Wayne Griffiths and the Hong Kong Sports Institute. To work with Marco is a real privilege and I am honoured by both Marco and Wayne’s belief in me and SightRight Coaching. We are focused as a Team to help Marco deliver his career ambitions and I can’t wait to see Marco lift more titles.” said Feeney.
Feeney’s mantra, often seen on social media, is ‘Winning Is Our Game!’ Given his reputation for delivering results, the focus on helping Fu lift more titles and hopefully a World Championship will, as was the case with Mark Williams, undoubtedly be followed very closely next season.
