I joined Bramshaw golf club as Head Professional in 1992 after serving seven years at Brokenhurst Manor and prior to that four years at Dunwood Manor. Due to injury problems I had to give up a successful playing career.
In 1976 I won both the Hampshire PGA matchplay and strokeplay titles and I am still to date the youngest player to have won both competitions in the same year.
In 1978 I qualified for the Open Championship at St Andrew's and the following year I earned my European Tour Card. My best finish was top 25 in the Swiss open.
Having worked with John Jacobs I have gained a vast experience of coaching, and was coach to Kevin Weeks when he won the English Amatuer championship.
Putting is usually an area of the game that most golfers neglect, but I have had a lot of success in helping people to improve this area. This has resulted in them lowering their scores and their handicaps.
Using the Flightscope and my vast knowledge of clubhead design and shaft specifications I am able to provide you with an excellent club fitting service, to ensure that the correct clubs are found to suit each individuals needs.
I joined Bramshaw Golf Club in 2015 after learning my trade at Canterbury Golf Club as a member of the PGA Professional staff, where I took up the responsibilities for Junior Coaching at the Club.
I started playing the game fully at the age of 12, after a couple of years of attending roll up coaching and at the local golf club and many trips to the range with my granddad. I quickly fell in love with the game, devoting a lot of my free time to it, trying to reach the goals I was setting myself with the support from the club professional at the time Roger Dowell. My goals quickly changed from getting a handicap, to breaking 90, to breaking 85. Right on through to trying to break 70 and turning pro.
So now I find myself in Rogers shoes with the responsibility of inspiring and supporting young budding golfers, as he did for me.
As coaches at Canterbury Golf Club our philosophy was to unlock a Childs potential by providing them with the tools to learn how to become confident and happy people whilst building their own passion for a game we are also very passionate about ourselves in a safe environment.
I will look to bring this philosophy to Bramshaw to continue the great work already being done.
