We’re passionate about helping you play better golf.
Every golfer enjoys the game more when they’re hitting good shots and playing well. This is our mission for you.
Think back to your last few rounds and try to pinpoint an area that cost you shots…
Maybe, you had too many three-putts as a result of poor distance control? Or did you miss too many fairways to the right meaning you had to chip out sideways? It could be that you play well in practice rounds with your friends but struggle to replicate that in competitions?
Through our experiences in the game and our PGA education, we appreciate that every golfer is different. That’s why we offer a range of lessons and packages to suit everyone.
I joined West Herts Golf Club in 1992 at the age of 12 and it’s been home for me throughout most of my golf career. I represented my club, county and country as an amateur before turning professional in 2001. I gained a tour card on the Web.com tour in the USA in 2003 before returning home to earn my European Tour card in 2004. I played 4 full seasons on the tour, finishing 3rd on 2 occasions. After dropping back to the European Challenge Tour and gaining partial European Tour status in 2013.
I started playing golf at 9 years of age and soon caught the golfing bug. I represented both Hertfordshire and England between the ages of 15 and 21 winning the County Championships plus some amateur events. I decided to turn Professional in 1998 and had several years playing professional mini tours, I got myself onto the European Challenge Tour and happened to win 5 times and eventually gained my full European Tour status in 2004. I played 10 full years on the main tour with a fair amount of success, I finished 2nd twice, 2007 Mallorca Classic and the 2009 Czech Masters. I decided to call an end to my full-time playing career at the end of 2014. I have now dedicated myself to being the best golf coach I can be and try to instil my wealth of golfing experience onto my students. I still try to play as much as I can as I think it is important to show that side of myself to others.
I have spent the last 4 years competing on the Mena Golf Tour which is based in the Middle East, the tour also has allowed me to play events on the Sunshine Tour in South Africa and the Asian tour in Thailand, alongside other events around the world and here in the UK. I have also gained a huge insight and great knowledge from caddying on the European Tour and learnt a lot from playing with some of the worlds best players and speaking and listening to the best coaches in the game. This experience allows me to adapt my coaching style to help you get the best from your game.
