Based in Shrewsbury, England, I am a Pro Golfer, Brand Ambassador and a Marketing & Sponsorship Consultant. 

Away from Business I enjoy playing Tennis at The Shrewsbury Club, spending time with friends and family, and playing Golf.

I turned Professional in 2009 with a handicap of +3.5 after playing for Shropshire, the Midlands, and England as an Amateur. I have experience in over 16 Countries including appearances on The European Challenge Tour, Professional Satellite Tours, and International Amateur Championships. 

Some of my achievements within Golf so far include winning the Midlands u21 Championship 3 years in a row, and the Welsh Open u21 Championship with a winning score of -14. My lowest rounds of Golf in competition so far include a 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 have reached the Final Qualifying Stage of The Open Championship on 6 occasions and in 2012 I won the Santander National Trick Shot Championship hosted by Rory Mcilroy. One of my aims for the future is to successfully compete as a Professional Golfer in the Open Championship.

Since 2011 I have hosted many Golf days or events with my Sponsors and their Guests. My participation at Golf Day's varies and may include playing Golf in the event with guests, hosting a 'Beat The Pro' Challenge, supporting a business to ensure that the organisation of their Golf day is successful. 


Since 2009 I have formed successful associations with a variety of organisations as a Brand Ambassador. All of the Businesses that I endorse do not compete with each other, and the services that I provide may include but are not limited to;

  • Promoting Brands - on my Golf Clothing, Website, via Social Media, and endorsing branded products or services.
  • Playing Golf with your Guests - improve your existing Customer Relations and generate new Business opportunities through rounds of Golf with one of your team and I, at a venue to suit you. 
  • New Business - All of the brands that I work with provide services or products that I approve of, therefore it is natural for me to endorse these brands to my connections. My personal connections are extensive and developing due to the variety of my work.
  • Managing or Attending Corporate Golf Day's - I have organised Golf Day's since 2005, working with Businesses to ensure that their event is successful. If your Business would like to host a Golf day for your existing Customers and their guests but none of your team have organised a Golf Day before then my knowledge and experience could be a great addition for your team.  
  • Beat The Pro Comp! - Since 2011 I have hosted numerous Beat The Pro competitions at Golf Days and Events. Maybe your Business already has an annual Golf Day that is organised, but a Beat The Pro Challenge would be a great addition to your day.
  • Entertaining your Colleagues, Clients, or Guests at Sporting Events. I attend numerous events each year with my sponsors, colleagues and guests such as The Open Championship, The Ryder Cup, European Tour Events, Wimbledon, and Football Matches. Attending major sporting events are a great way for you to build your relationships with your existing and potential customers. I could join you at these events, or arrange tickets and hospitality for you.
  • Sales, Marketing, and Sponsorship Consultancy Services. I work with brands and individuals to improve their Sales, Marketing, and Sponsorship Activities.
