To order black and white prints of any of these photographs, you should email the office at office@stat.org.uk. The office will reply with a quote and an estimated delivery time after receiving payment (because orders are printed individually, it is unlikely that any print can be supplied for less than £15).

Jpg files of the archive photos are available to teaching members of the Society only at no cost. However, there is an administrative fee, depending on how many photos you wish us to send you. For up to six there is no charge; from seven to 12 there is a charge of £10.00 and for 13 to 20 a charge of £15.00. For more than 20 images, please contact the STAT office for information on the administrative fee.

Please email the office at office@stat.org.uk for details of availability and copyright restrictions.

The Alexander Technique helped me release tension which I was previously unaware that I had, in particular when standing at the tee. In the past my mind would have been elsewhere and my thoughts made me more tense. Applying the Technique I discovered relaxing the jaw, feeling my socks in my shoes, sensing the ground beneath my feet and just being there really helped. My drive distance improved and I cut 5 shots in one game. I now play much more relaxed by applying these principles and am more aware of the moment and less focused on the outcome (what Alexander Technique teachers call end-gaining) and my drive distances have improved through being more relaxed and having greater freedom of movement.
