I started playing golf at the age of ten and joined Radcliffe on Trent Golf Club. I enjoyed a lot of success as a junior being part of the Notts team that won both the Midland and National County Finals.

Aged 19 I became club champion and went on to win the Nottinghamshire under 21 championships before deciding to pursue a career as a professional golfer.

I am a PGA Qualified Professional with over 20 years experience. I started my teaching career at Radcliffe on Trent before moving on to Ramsdale Park Golf Centre to become a Senior Teaching Professional. I have a real passion for teaching the game of golf, helping people of all ages and abilities to fulfill their potential.

I am now a Teaching Professional at Trent Lock Golf and Country Club, a superb venue with excellent teaching and hospitality facilities. Using the latest technology with in depth analysis I offer a variety of lesson packages catering for everyone from beginners to groups, ladies and juniors to the higher skilled golfers.
