We are proud of our achievements here at Golf World and this is reflected in the number of satisfied, and more importantly improved golfers who we help to improve along the way.


PGA Golf Professional 

I first picked up a golf club from the age of 13, and I have been hooked ever since. I turned professional from a 2 handicap at the age of 18 and started my PGA training at the Belfry golf Club which is the headquarters of the PGA of Europe.

Once qualified I knew that teaching and playing was quickly becoming my passion. I have spent just over 15 years working and teaching in golf with a spell at Woolston Manor Golf & Country Club and the majority of my time at Hainault Golf Club where I was the Head PGA Golf Professional for 4 years.

I have played and won events on several golf tours including the Jamega Golf Tour as well as winning pro-am events and individual events on the east region PGA and Essex PGA golf tours.

Teaching golfers of all abilities and ages is by far the most rewarding part of golf for me. Seeing them develop from beginners to fully competent golfers, seeing them learn and improve, and when they come back with a great smile on their face after their best round, are by far the best feelings you can take from being a golf tutor.

I love the phrase “practice makes perfect” and this is most definitely true with golf.
