Further information about my career can be discovered below.


I turned Professional in 2009 with a handicap of +3.5 after playing for 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 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 within a team, hosting a 'Beat The Pro' Challenge, or just supporting the Golf Day host to manage a successful event.


Since 2009 I have formed successful associations with a variety of successful organisations as a Brand Ambassador. All of the Businesses that I represent 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 contacts within the UK are extensive, and growing, and I can work with your business to identify, approach, and secure new Business opportunities for your organisation. 
  • Managing or Attending Corporate Golf Day's - I have organised Golf Day's since 2005, some on my own and many others working with a Business to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Maybe 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? This is fine, and I can help you to ensure that your Golf day is successful. 
  • Beat The Pro! - Since 2011 I have attended numerous Golf Days to run a Beat The Pro competition on one of the par 3's. 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? Contact me if you would me to support your Golf 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. Build your relationships with your existing and potential customers via a Sporting event. I could join you at these events, or just arrange tickets and hospitality for you.
  • Sales, Marketing, and Sponsorship Consultancy Services. I work as a Consultant for brands and individuals to improve their Sales, Marketing, and Sponsorship Activities.
