Born and raised in a small town in the North West of England, sports have played a pivotal role in my life. I loved partaking in anything I could, I just wanted to be active and competing. There’s something about the journey to keep continually improving every single day that not only motivates, but excites and inspires me to keep working hard.
I started playing golf from the early age of 7, and seemed to have a natural talent for it, quickly bringing down my handicap and starting to win some tournaments. While I was also a swimmer and football player until the age of 12, I decided after that time to give golf my full commitment, working my way onto the England National Team for 6 years and also representing GB&I back in 2009. Since that day, I haven’t looked back.
For my education, I attended the University of San Francisco on a Golf Scholarship, where I graduated with a B.A in Advertising in May of 2016. After spending an additional year working as a Brand Strategist in downtown San Francisco, but still maintaining my practice and competitiveness on the golf course, I signed off an incredible 5-year experience in America, where my hope is to return some day soon.
As I’ve grown older, I’ve widened my hobbies to give myself some downtime away from the course, taking a great interest in Photography and also acquiring a taste for fine wine. Living for 5 years in San Francisco, a stones throw from Napa Valley, it’s hard not to acquire a taste for the beautiful wines that are available in this part of the world.
I’m excited to now be a professional golfer where I have the opportunity to try and make my dream a reality.
