Meet the Professional Staff
I was introduced to the game of golf as a 10-year-old by my father who was a very keen single-figure handicap player. Shortly after I joined Bath golf club as a junior member. I quickly developed a passion for the game and a dream to one day become a professional golfer.
I worked hard on my game through my teenage years and had some success at Bath golf club winning the Junior Club Championship and Men’s Club Championship three times each. I was also able to shoot a course record score of 64 which still stands.
From the age of 13, I represented Somerset Golf Union starting in the Under 14s and rising through the ranks to play for the Men’s 1st Team. I was selected for three South West Week teams and an English County Final team before turning pro in 2010 having reached a handicap of +3.
As a professional, I played full-time for 6 seasons competing on the Europro Tour, Jamega Tour and TP Tour as well as trying my hand at European Tour School twice. I was able to win on the Jamega Tour, TP Tour and finish runner-up in a Europro event. Results that I take great pride in.
At the age of 28, I started my PGA training, right here, at Ogbourne Downs golf club before moving on to Orchardleigh, Bath, Stockwood Vale and Tony Valentine Golf Centre. On March 29th 2021 I was delighted to rejoin the team at Ogbourne Downs golf club as the Head Professional.
My passion now lies in delivering the best possible service and experience for our members and guests.
I am from Bath, and I had played the majority of my Golf at Lansdown Golf Club, where I played off a 0.7 handicap before turning professional on the 1st of October 2021.
I had marked success as a junior, winning the Junior Club Championship at 18 years old, which also happened to be my first round of level par, other Junior opens, and Men’s club events at Lansdown.
I had a fairly long time away from the game due to competition in other sports, and an injury, but I have been back playing since May of 2021.
I come from a very sporty background, having played a good standard in football, and having done Thai Boxing for the last 8 years. I am an outdoorsy person, and as long as it involves a bit of weather, I’m happy doing it!
I’m an enthusiastic person by nature and I am just as enthused about your game as I am about my own. I stand by the notion, that golfers are never in competition with each other, only the course, and as such, I am compelled to deliver the best possible coaching and experience I can, so that you can play your best, and enjoy this beautiful game.
