PGA Professional Class AT
I started my golfing career at Worsley GC (Manchester) where my father Ceri was PGA Professional. I played my junior golf at Worsley and was selected to represent my county (Lancashire) as a junior. I turned Professional at 18 and embarked on the PGA Foundation degree in Professional Golf, a degree accredited by Birmingham University that encompasses retail, teaching, equipment technology and business management. Whilst undertaking my degree I split my time between teaching at Silverdale GC (Cumbria) & teaching at Astley Golf Center under Lancashire County Coach, Gareth Benson. I qualified and was elected a PGA member at age 21 and in 2008 took the post as PGA Professional at Bentham Golf Club (Nort Yorkshire). In 2012 I was appointed PGA Professional at Helsby GC (Cheshire) which is where I have been since. I currently live in Helsby with my wife Gemma and our 2 boys Dylan & Samuel.
PGA Professional Class A
I first started playing golf at age 13 where I attended some junior classes and immediately fell in love with the game, at age 15 I joined Bromborough GC and was given a handicap of 6. At 16 I moved away to Preston for two years to attend Myerscough College and complete my National Diploma in Golf Studies. Once I had completed this course I decided to see how good I could be so alongside work I played and practiced as much as I could, however it became clear that unfortunately I wasn’t going to be good enough to make it as a playing professional. In 2013 I was approached by Chris Cousins with regards to becoming the Assistant Professional at Helsby Golf Club, I accepted and began my PGA Training, during this training I began to really enjoy teaching, in 2017 I completed my PGA Training and became a full member of the PGA.
