Two times World Champion, Mark Williams has not lifted a title since 2011. Following his run to the final in the China Open toward the end of last season, he then failed to qualify for the Crucible although he has returned into the Top 16 for the 2017/18 Season.
Williams felt he needed to change a few things to compete at the highest level again and on the strong recommendation of his current coach, Lee Walker, has turned to SightRight Snooker Coaching specialist Stephen Feeney for help.
The hallmark of Williams’ game throughout his career was always his long potting. However, over the last few seasons this part of his game has become very hit and miss, hindering his performances and challenges for the titles he still believes he is capable of winning.
Feeney feels by strengthening key parts of William’s game, he can help him relight his career and together they have set sights on Williams winning more titles and Snooker’s greatest prize – the 2018 World Championship.
Over the last 19 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 22 Titles captured to date.
He 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 snookers most coveted prize, the 2015 World Championship and World No2 spot. In Golf, Feeney 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.
Following their recent first session together, William’s immediate feedback on Twitter was:“I knew my aiming was out but not that far out.”
“Stephen’s SightRight tests and the things we have talked about and put in place in my game have made huge sense. I soon found out that Stephen’s technical knowledge is extensive and the results in practice using SightRight Methods have been fantastic.” said Williams.
Feeney’s mantra, often seen on social media, is “Winning Is Our Game!”
With his unique coaching expertise across three wonderful sports, he has coached and inspired many of the
world’s top snooker, darts and golf stars, including the current World No.1 Golf Junior.
Given his reputation for delivering results, his focus on helping Williams lift more titles and the 2018 World Championship will no doubt be followed very closely.
“It is a huge privilege to be asked by someone of Marks stature in the game for help and we are both excited by what we have seen in our sessions so far. The focus is on Mark winning more titles and another World Championship and I am extremely grateful for this opportunity, and to Lee Walker (now a SightRight Accredited Coach) for his trust and confidence in recommending me to Mark.” said Feeney.
