I turned Professional in 2009 with a handicap of +3.5 as an England Amateur Player. I have experience in over 16 Countries, including Tournaments on The 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 regularly played rounds of Golf with my Sponsors and their Guests, along with competing in a variety of Corporate Golf Day's. My participation at Golf Day's varies from playing in the event representing a Business in a Team Event, or hosting a 'Beat The Pro' Challenge.
