I began playing golf around the age of 4 with my family and ever since then I have developed a real passion for the game.
Regional Level: I played at regional level with Renfrewshire County and then progressed up to national level where I represented Scotland at various levels. I spent 2 years on a golf scholarship in the U.S. which then kick started my decision to turn Professional in 1997.
Professional Playing Career: I played and won three times during a 2 year period on the PGA EuroPro Tour and then progressed to the European Challenge Tour where I played a full schedule around Europe & Asia - leading to the final Qualifying School at San Roque - I unfortunately missed out on my Tour Card by 2 shots after the 6 rounds. I am still committed very much to my own game and will continue to play on the PGA Tartan Tour within the Scottish Region.
Coaching Background: I began golf coaching back in 2010 and have built up a solid database of clients who I have worked with on a regular basis since then. I am very passionate about golf and enjoy teaching players of all abilities - these vary from the absolute beginner right through to Scottish Internationalist Amateurs, County Players and Professionals! Previously, over the last three years, I have been a Performance Coach with Scottish Golf working with the Academy Players on their development programme. Alongside fellow Professional, Mark Loftus, we coach the Under 18s and Under 14s for Renfrewshire Golf Union.
Club Professional Background: From March 2015 – July 2018, I was based at Eastwood Golf Club, however, I am now the Club Professional at The Whitecraigs Golf Club in the south-side of Glasgow. One of the West of Scotland’s premier clubs, established in 1905, we are a classic parkland course which has a rich history stretching back over 100 years. The members here are very welcoming and friendly with a prominent social network. I’m looking forward to working with the Club and its’ members and being part of a strong future here at Whitecraigs.
