I started playing Golf when I was twelve years old in 1999 at Church Stretton Golf Club and I really enjoyed it. Over the following years I was playing Golf for my club team, Shropshire, Midlands and England with a handicap of +3.5 so I decided to turn Pro in 2009.
So far I've been sensibly cautious. The expenses that come with playing on Pro Tours are very high and to earn more money than you're spending (through prize money and sponsorship) is very challenging. I'm winning that battle but would like to increase my playing schedule next year.
There's been some fun moments so far, I've visited over 16 Countries including appearances on The European Challenge Tour, Professional Satellite Tours, and in International Amateur Championships. I've reached the final stage of Open Qualifying quite a few times and I've formed some great relationships with individuals, businesses and sponsors along the way which have helped my career as a whole.
My favourite achievements so far include winning the Midlands u21 Championship 3 years in a row, the Welsh Open u21 Championship, and winning a National Trick Shot Competition hosted by Rory Mcilroy and Santander with a nice prize of £12,000.
My lowest rounds of Golf in competition include a course record round of 57 (-9) at Church Stretton Golf Club, 60 (-11) at The Astbury (Gold Tees), and 65 (-6) at the Vale of Llangollen. I've had some terrible rounds too but I try to forget about those..
As a Pro Golfer my income comes from sponsorship, appearance fees and tournament prize money. I manage some Golf day's for businesses and play Golf with Sponsors and their guests too.
